Default Bulldozer Update?

So i guess windows 7 made an update for bulldozer

i have an fx 4100 but people say dont download it so i probally wont because its an incomplete and the "Full Bulldozer Patch" Is suppose to be out Q1 2012. Did anyone download it yet? Just wanna know if it was better then no patch.

it would be better to install the new patch, it doesn't matter if its not finished or not, it will most likely be stable if it is offical

you do only have a 4 core bulldozer?

not to be a snob but you wont be seeing much difference, windows 7 is already optimised for 4 core cpu's

but i dont know i heard about this update a few days ago, just guessing this is right

Interesting, apparently it's a two part update, and both parts are basically needed in order to work properly. Guess it's better to NOT update to this patch since part 2 isn't finished yet.
