    Can't expect too much from a HotFix. Gotta wait for an official patch that works out the bugs.
  4. Here's what Microsoft says at the end of the paragraph on the link I provided...

  5. Indeed.
  6. You'll need to wait for Windows 8 to see an OS that recognizes and can make efficient use of Bulldozer's 2 module per core architecture.
  7. Any date on when that's going to happen?
  8. The hotfix might work, but you won't see the numbers you'll see with Win8 scheduler.
  9. No it's won't work the same, but when they do release it, likely it will offer a good performance boost, however it won't be able to park cores like Win8, which will bring the 8 core 8150 to within 9w of the 2500K at idle.

    By the way, all Windows OS's are based off the one before...lol

    No, I have no desire to try to make you understand.

    Delusional much?

  12. As I understand it they are trying to figure out a way to get the scheduler to assign threads to cores 0a, 1a, 2a... before assigning them to 0b, 1b, 2b...
    intel avoids this with their HT cores for most programs because the HT cores being at the end of the core list. ie - 2600k real cores are 0-3, HT cores are 4-7

    can anyone confirm?
