The current numbers might look good for cpu performance but what about bus performance.

While the current cpu benches we are being fed look good for performance. It really makes me wonder how strong the pcie bus performance is. Not to mention performance outside the main interconnect in general.

The APU's from AMD have had great internal interconnect performance. But once you leave that space and start trying to add discrete cards or components to the mix it went into the toilet fast. Not to mention stability problems.

I just don't trust AMD at this point with how far behind they have been, and the attitude of well we will fix this next chip. Or we left this out cause it cost us to much despite the demand for it, or already being implemented by our competitors.

if the real world performance ends up fitting the application, and its stable than by all means I will suggest it/implement it as a solution. But at this point I just don't have the trust that i once did in AMD.
