Agree with others...AMD needs BD (better be all its suppose to be). The only real positive here is that it should further push prices down on other CPUs (965/955 especially), and make them a ridiculously well priced upgrade path for those with low end am3/am2+ CPUs looking for a quick and easy bump in performance. As for the 980 itself....its a definite pass.
