Tomorrow I shall see how far I can push it. But for now BF3 benchies :)

So basically if you want to build a PC that spends 90% of it's time doing fu*k all, then Pile driver is then way to go.
On a serious note now, when I built my last rig it was built with Bulldozer in mind and we all know how that turned out, so I waited for pile driver hoping for some thing half decent.
But as it stands I have no reason to move away from my 1100T.
As much as I like AMD stuff, I can't break it, where as I have trashed a few of Intels finest, I think the next big upgrade for me will have to be a return to Intel again.

It we had went with SQL 2012 then that would have been ok because of the licencing costs, but with PostGIS more cores = happy customers. For the server market AMD are providing some compelling solutions. For integrated solutions, netbooks, laptops and the base end of the PC market, AMD is the way to go. But for enthusiasts it is hard to see anything that they can provide.
In terms of CPU design, I assume by now AMD must have taken Intels design apart and understand where the single threaded performance difference is coming from.
And remind me, why have we not had a the same level of die shrinkage with AMD? as intel.
