they couldn't compete with sandy bridge, why even try to compete with ivy bridge? and i thought they were moving away from desktop processors to focus more on servers/mobile processors.

See i think we all would like to see AMD pull something out of the bag to compete just so we had different options availible.

Unfortunate it won't happen.

Very misleading title. I thought it might be a reference to Piledriver; these new chips aren't up against Ivy Bridge, they can barely compete with Sandy Bridge Pentium and i3.
What a waste.

Ain't that the truth, only issue is though, at least the ford has price/performance. This has absolutely Zip.

125 watts, I guess AMD is just pumping up Ghz at the cost of heat to try and compete like Intel did with the Pentium IV. Come on AMD what happened to the geniuses you had that trounced Intel with the Athlon 64? They are doing well with AMD Fusion, Hondo looks promising and the Radeon HD 7000 series are great in power savings and completely trounce nVidia in performance per watt.

Title is misleading. More like AMD plans to push out additional processors and adjust the price to compete better - not necessarily a head-on battle. :\

How do you know? The 3770K (IB) and the 2700K (SB) have the same clock rate, cores and HT, the only difference is that the IB has a TDP of 77W, the SB has a TPD of 95W.

Chip in a box... you are an AMD fanboy. Almost everything you said has already been proven wrong. It is a major upgrade to Sandy Bridge (15% faster on CPU up to 2x faster on graphics, has more room for overclocking, and considerably cooler at 77W).

LOL... just because somebody slates IB as not really much of a step up over SB, that automatically makes them an AMD fanboy? I admit it's very possible, but not everything is black and white.

He might even be a recent SB adopter trying to justify his purchase.

Misleading title is misleading but seeing ppl comment around here about core I3 you must be a marketing idiot and a fanatic intel fanboy to even try compare the I3 be it w/e version vs bulldozer. the I3 can`t even keep pace with a Phenom II while multitasking. Yeah intel is good at the top but below the I5 line is crappier than what AMD has to offer. And here i`m not talking about games where the charts are about few fps .

Many people would buy the i3-2100 and make the jump over to an i5-3570k or i7-3770k, it's all about upgrading and life long efficiency of a system. This is something that amd does not have and has proven to fail with the fx bulldozer cpus.

AMD tries to catch up with Ivy Bridge, and still will lag behind Sandy Bridge. IB isn't even that much more gain in performance (5-10% in most cases) over SB, but AMD's Bulldozer series can't even come close to competing with that. That successor Bulldozer product that AMD claims will be "25% faster and more efficient" is needed to compete just with SB. Haswell will be out within a year to make the lead even further.

AMD needs a miracle or a big break right now.

They have too get out a performance boost so they dont fall behind that crucial "half as fast" point for marketing purposes. I firmly believe AMD will remain past "half as fast" and be able to continue doing decent business with the red zombies.

+1 geekapproved.

it's all about the shareholders... the goal of the company isn't to beat Intel, but to make money for it's shareholders... a gain in market share (all other things constant) is a gain to the shareholder... so whether the net gain from the mobile sector superseeds the overall loss in market share in the desktop chip sector, AMD is making profits, AMD will survive, and we'll enjoy the fruits of this unbalanced competition.... imagine if there was no competition....

funny thing... AMD reminds me of Toyota in the late 80's... no North American car manufacturer saw them as a threat... look at the car market today....

Although I've been an AMD user since upgrading from the second-generation Celeron, Ivy Bridge will probably be included in my final, last ever build. I don't think desktops are going to be feasible five years from now and with the focus on tablets, ultra low power laptops and console games, the top Ivy Bridge non-Extreme model will probably be enough for the next five years.

After that we're probably looking at a tablet-like computer that can seamlessly and wirelessly connect to nearby displays, input devices, etc and the desktop will be history.
