at those prices they really arent worth buying compared to an intel setup. remove another $10-15 from the 6 core and it might be worth it....... still not available in AUS though

If I've heard it once, I've heard it a million times all the hoopla over the Bulldozer - we'll folks they're here?!

Interesting Review and the recommendation is Buy Core i5-2500K - http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/fx-8150-zambezi-bul...

I knew but I had hoped AMD would either leapfrog the Intel Sandy Bridge in speed or, preferably AND, under-priced it by $100 :D

Those prices are way too high for gamers. They can only possibly be justified if this turns out to be a great server chip, and we're not the ones who will be buying it. As I commented on another thread, AMD engineers who purposefully designed a fantastic server chip have just had their natural rage toward sales and marketing droids thoroughly stoked.

Frankly, IMO AMD Blew a good opportunity. If anything I had hoped the price-to-performance would have sparked REAL competition to Intel.

IF so (WE) would have had a Win-Win!

Makes you wonder how much Intel owns in AMD stock :heink:

Just for extreme overclock, my current setup is fine for me and my family.

You going to write an AMD FX overclock guide?

I'm still trying to find any SQL benchmarks FX-8150 vs i5-2500(K). I know Opteron vs Xeon but I never assume ;)

Thinking on that, but I'm trying to do somethings for get the CPU in a easy way.

Problem: a small SQL test run can be 20~30+ minutes for a County. Therefore, the small tests are done during the Working Hours and 5% or 20% difference cost ME money. The link is an homage of excuses.

I have to KNOW and the ONLY test that I give a hoot about is "SQL benchmarks FX-8150 vs i5-2500(K)". I could care less if the games better/worse or zips a file 3ms faster.

Background blah blah:
Spoiler
Just to give you a glimpse of what I do - the Servers we stitch together a 'Master' database of County, State, and MLS data. The County for example can be from (10+) separate Tables some with 100K~1M+ records x 100+ fields, and a State can have 40+ Counties. The MLS is updated daily including photos (10-20 JPEG) and 2000~5000+ updates/new per day per Region and there can be (10~30+) MLS per State; I tend not to use the older/7 day 'State' compilations. Currently, we are running data for 6 states. It's a ton of Enterprise data. Then the final data is formatted for each client.

The testing rigs are used for: office apps and as a terminal to the servers which ANY CPU can handle. However, we are constantly testing the County and State data against 'updated calculations' and 'integrity' checking; i.e. improving and double-checking. I also have 4 Testing Servers for the larger runs. A 'Regional', generally MLS driven can run for 4~8 hours.

thats nice but, i guess unless they pull off some miracle BIOS update/windows patch that brings them up to speed (not likely though), you would have to be an idiot to buy one for home use anyway.

I would have to agree with you there. I am sure the BIOS update will come, but we will have to see how much of an improvement it will make. That is why I'm not going to jump on any bandwagon just yet. I am rather going to hold out with my current setup and see what happens.
