Finally bulldozer revision with 95W consumtion rating. Maybe this was the whole new stepping people have heard about.
With Intels Ivy Bridge being a power reduction and slight performance increase of Sandy bridge being released soon its going to just overshadow these as the whole bulldozer / faildozer reaction the public had... But going from 125W to 95W is nice.
Question still remains though are we going to see a AMD CPU pulling down 225W just north of 4.5ghz? More then likely unless this is preview of what is to come with piledriver.
But we are probably going to contiune to see BD perform badly even with these new stepping CPU's unless there's some IPC improvement tossed in.
