I have recently decided to build a gaming/auto cad beast of a desktop, and I was looking into a fx 8150 for the processor. however, after seeing the initial reviews and benchmarks I find it hard to imagine this being the cpu for me.
but I found this, as well as a few other sites proclaiming somewhat the same thing.
[QuinEtiam] AMD FX/Bulldozer Registry Fix - 40% performance boost! - Overclock.net - Overclocking.net
there seems to be alot of hype building up about a possible software optomization for bulldozer yeilding performance increases anywhere from 3% all the way up to 40%. I
what do yall think, is the bulldozer unborn? should I wait to see how this stuff turns out before I shoot a hole in my wallet for this new rig?
to me, it just doesn't make sense that AMD would release a cpu with roughly twice the number of transister as the i7 2600k yet a marginal performance increase over their last gen cpus.
