In case you missed it yesterday, AMD revealed a great many details about the new Bulldozer architecture that will underpin the company's next generation of desktop and server CPUs. This bold new design appears to have loads of potential, but then so did Barcelona, and we all know how that panned out. AMD still doesn't have a desktop CPU fast enough to sell for more than $300.
Does AMD have a better chance with Bulldozer, especially with Intel's Sandy Bridge due out in early 2011? That's the subject of this week's poll, which asks: Will Bulldozer deliver? You can cast your vote over on the right column on the front page or after clicking on the comment link below.
In last week's poll, we inquired about just how much storage sits inside your primary PC. A lot of folks have yet to crack the terabyte threshold, with 16% packing less than 500GB and 22% between 500GB and just under 1TB. 19% have 1-1.49TB at their disposal, while 12% fill in the gap between 1.5 and 1.9TB. Of those who voted, 14% are in 2TB territory, and another 6% have three-point-something terabytes of storage capacity. Impressively, 11% have 4TB or more in their primary system.
