By the Emperor, AMD has finally reached a retail CPU stock clocked at 3.6Ghz on a 45nm process, god damn I was really getting tired of this "overclock your 3.2Ghz to 4Ghz" bullcrap.

I am guessing that this time they are really confident that Bulldozer is going to be 32nm and its going to be majorly (really really really this time unlike the ditching Windsor for Barcelona) leap in CPU performance.

OOHHhh nice 95W 6 Core.. yummy nice drop in replacement for my X3 720.. amazing when you think about it.. 100% more cores at the same power and faster (2.9 vs 2.8).. awesome htpc/encoding task CPU. Can't wait.
