It certainly feels like we've been talking about it forever. But there's still the high-end version (Bloomfield/Gulftown replacement) and chipset coming, and then the inevitable matchup with Bulldozer.

Meanwhile, I'm still looking forward to the SB mATX comparo, the updated system guide, and some software benchmarks that dissect AVX.

Heck, I'm still hoping for someone somewhere to compare the encoding quality of x264 (preferably using various settings) vs. Quicksync. Sure, we've seen plenty of comparisons of commercial H.264 encoders vs. Quicksync, but not x264 - at least that I've run across.
