I would expect Piledriver to be anywhere from 5-15% faster than Bulldozer, but no, it still wont be as fast as Sandy Bridge or Ivy Bridge. Closer to Nehalem (first gen Core CPU's).

Im guessing your an intel fanboy? Because theres certain taks that the bulldozer rapes the sandy bridge in. Id say the 8150 is par with the i53570k if you know how to use it right

:lol:  No, just a realist.

Of course a 8150 beats an i5 in heavily threaded programs (it damn well better, that's the only thing it's good at), but a 8150 doesn't stand a chance against an i7.

Oh yeah. 8 threads vs 8 threads.

The 8150 wins very slightly in 3 of 52 benchmarks.......we must be Intel fanboys not to recognize AMD dominance! Or just stupid......I better throw my 2600K away.

Oh yeah I was nice and compared a 2600K since you said Sandy Bridge. Change that 2600K to a 3770K and those 3 tiny AMD wins go away.

Raped indeed.

comparing an 8150 180 buck cpu to a i7 3770k 320 buck cpu, is just plain useless. not defending bd, but um yea.

http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/434?vs=288

8150 vs i5 2500k.

edit
@op if you have the money, i would just buy the i7 3770k.

Which shows unless you spend all day in POV ray or using certain encoding software BD is crap.

So for the majority of people buying it, it's crap

im not denying the fact that bd is garbage, but you shouldn't write pd off like its nothing.

will pd dominate intel i7s most likely not. if pd is priced correctly it shouldn't be a failure like bd was.

at the very least pd will be a step in the right direction for amd and i wish they could get back in the cpu game.

I thought it was a perfectly reasonable question by the OP.

Simple answer is nope, PD won't match Sandy/Ivybridge i7s, but then they won't be competing on price. I'd imagine the top PDs will still be competing with i5s. In which case, they will still lose on most (single threaded) apps, but nowhere near as badly as BD. And they will be very competitive on threaded apps, of which there are more and more and software (including games) is slowly moving in that direction.

I imagine they will be reasonably competitive chips *for the price* but will still fail miserably against more expensive 8-thread i7s.

Looks like PD might match/slightly beat Phenom on IPC, which is a relief.

it was a reasonable question until it was reasonably answered and the op called the reasonable answerer an "intel fanboy."

They won't I bet they do the stupid thing again with pricing. For most of it's time 81xx was similar price too 2500k now finally as it's about to be replaced it can be had at a price that would have been better at start.

I will bet PD is no different.

Yes, because I got to where I am here by being completely ignorant and stupid... :sarcastic: 

The first answer I gave was spot on accurate.

It appears that I'm not the fanboy here. You don't want to hear the truth and call me a dumba** when I tell you... Great manners there, sir.
