Unfortunately, the new architecture of AMD seems to lack punch every sane spectator of the CPU market hoped it would pack. See review1, and review2.

Sobs.

I guess this is going to be a stepping stone release and AMD was going for the 'first 8 core processor' tag.

They are going to be releasing 4.3Ghz chips soon (but haven't yet) so maybe a 30% increase in current clock speeds will prove the concept.

Personally I think the Bulldozer II will iron out some of the kinks.

It has to be said at least AMD are being innovative in its designs.

Some commentary by Scali (he's been critically (balancing close to inflammatory, but that's how he is :)) following Bulldozer stuff for a while) - seems like it's pretty darn lackluster.
