As you guys know Im an avid member of and follow hardware news there routinely.
In the past few days Bulldozer Chips have been showing up in very odd ways(before the NDA lift) on many websites.

Shortly after this, we got our first look at the leaked press kit. A day later, we have leaked Benches from PCM, although they were clearly not run under ideal conditions, as indicated by the material in the original source article.

When this information was discovered, it took about 2 hours for PCM to pull it down, apparently threatened by the attention they were getting, and afraid of what action AMD may take for them breaching the terms of the NDA.

Here is the thread describing what we all saw.

Since the source was pulled, many people can not get the benches that were shown, but a member of, Olivion,  compiled this list so that others can see for themselves.

This is the SAME list that was posted earlier today, it is unedited, and a fair look at BD;s performance.

I wanted BD to be a real competitor more than anyone, but you have to admit, AMD has made STRIDES since the Phenom. Hopefully we will get some serious competition between the two camps in 1-2 more generations of chips, because AMD's next move will only slightly increase the performance of Bulldozer, much Like Ivy Bridge will for Sandy.

Please let me know what you think of these scores, and what you think about the bulldozer chip.
