    What, the OBR result? He updated later to say it was a Chinese fake. I've read from somewhere else it was a Bulldozer chip, not Piledriver.

    Not really. It could happens on Latency as well as CR
    I hope the 32nm of Piledriver will be a later version. Remark that the first version of 45nm of GF is not that good, while the latest of which is really great.

    No, what they're cleverly saying is that perf/watt should be sortof equal...in a pretty specific setting. And the jury is far less out on what Ivy Bridge (please make an effort and at least use proper codenames and proper form in written communication, there's honest mistakes and just sloppiness) than it is on what Piledriver brings to BD. Let's not build up unrealistic expectations again only to have them go kaboom.

    The only way a Trinity at 17W could compare to a 30W Llano anyway would be solely in the GPU. The CPU will be slower.

    you know this based on what? bulldozer does very well at low power. quadcore llano at 35watt TDP is only 1.4 ghz. so a little bit of extra IPC over bulldozer and if they can hit 100-200mhz higher base clock and a better turbo then llano i can see it matching.

    not saying that it will..... but you speak like its fact when reality is you have NFI.


    the 35watt 8 core does have a base clock of 1.6 and a turbo of 2.8 so it could get close.

    The analyst day slides are a bit inconsistent:
    The former is certainly much less impressive compared to the A6-3400M (35w) on the "Torpedo" reference design scoring 4545 and the E2-1800 (another slight boost to Zacate?) on the "Torpedo" reference design scoring 2757.

    And a 4.2GHz multi core K8 derivative ?

    Cheers

    Different work units having different calculation requirements is my guess. Though without having actual links to the work units used to make that table I can't be sure.

    It seems the clock here means the highest TB rate.

    I am considering FX-8150, it's like the same price as i5 3570k at the moment. It won't be my workstation, just a hobby rig of some sort. Going to run mainly Corel Painter 12 with Cintiq 24 HD and was hoping the brushes won't lag with the FX-8150. It's lagging pretty bad with my old Athlon X2. Corel Painter 12 seems to support up to 8 processors. Anyone here have FX and Painter 12 ? I can't find any impression between these two setup.

    Should I get FX-8150 or just get i7 3770k ?

    Because this is where their bread and butter is for the time being, and they can have a bang (Trinity looks quite good given its neighbourhood!). Vishera or whatever won't look so good...no GPU superiority to talk of, no TDP headroom to boast about. They also probably want to get people considering back to school lappies and whatever to take Trinity into account for their purchase!

    a 8120 with CPU cooler and overclock it is good value, else if you wish to not overclock a 8150 is fine.
    but it depends, if you have a cold climate and/or no A/C in the summer then a FX is indeed fine, if you have 35°C weather and building cooled down with A/C an Intel CPU is better.
