Post Posted: Tue Jan 04, 2011 6:41 am   Post subject: Bulldozer VS. Sandy Reply with quote Back to top  

AMD's upcoming processor codenamed Bulldozer
Intel's upcoming processor (may be it is already out if not few days later) Sandy

Any thoughts which one is better? I read rumors that Bulldozer might include something like reverse-multi-threading (not exactly reverse MT as AMD clarified that long ago, but something similar), which sounds awesome.

not sure what's super cool about Sandy though..

What do you think about this new stuff?

Sandy Bridge is manufactured on Intel's 32 nm process technology (the same manufacturing process used for Westmere/Clarkdale processors). That makes it cheaper, faster and more power efficient than processors manufactured at 45 nm.

Reviews of the new Sandy Bridge processors appeared yesterday, just after midnight.

I hope that I'll be able to order a new Core i5-2500K or Core i7-2600K processor this week.

It seems AMD is also making it a 32nm

I've read somewhere that Sandy Bridge has very close performance to i7 six cores ones, while much cheaper. If this is true, I don't think Bulldozer would be any better, which is may be why they are stuck in postponing their CPU.

I haven't been exited this much about CPU wars since long ago, lots of major changes happening around (need it for a new home server that will get bloated with lots of stuff).
