    Default AMD Bulldozer, can it get even worse?

    A number of reviewers have reported problems with a Blue Screen Of Death on AMD’s Bulldozer, even with stock settings:



    The reviewers reporting this problem include, but are not limited to:

    http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/cpus/2011/10/12/amd-fx-8150-review/9


    http://www.sweclockers.com/recension/14579-amd-fx-8150-och-fx-8120-bulldozer/21


    http://muropaketti.com/artikkelit/prosessorit/amd-fx-8150-zambezi,3


    http://www.hardware.fr/articles/842-22/jeux-3d-total-war-shogun-2-starcraft-ii-anno-1404.html


    As you can see, Total War: Shogun 2 triggers this bug. Which is rather ironic, since it is part of AMD’s Gaming Evolved program.
    The hardware.fr review says that AMD has been able to reproduce the bug, and is working on a fix.
    Now, what is happening here? Let’s look at Microsoft’s site for an explanation of this particular error code:

    The CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT bug check has a value of 000000101. This indicates that an expected clock interrupt on a secondary processor, in a multi-processor system, was not received within the allocated interval.
    ..

    Cause


    The specified processor is not processing interrupts. Typically, this occurs when the processor is nonresponsive or is deadlocked.
    So apparently there is a problem with the multiprocessing in Bulldozer. The interrupt handling can get messed up at times.
    Note also that the above review-sites have used different hardware, so it is unlikely that this is caused by a specific motherboard, BIOS, memory, videocard, PSU or anything like that. Also, as most overclockers will be able to tell you: if your system is just unstable because of problems with voltage, overheating or such, then although you may get BSOD’s, they are generally not reproducible. The actual reported error is quite random, it just depends on where the CPU fails first. So you generally get a different error code with every BSOD. In this case, it is always the same error. It is also an error that I have never seen myself, during all the years of overclocking, dealing with unstable memory, voltage and whatnot…

    So Bulldozer is starting to look more and more like Barcelona: Not only is the performance underwhelming, but apparently the stability is not 100% either.

    Looks like vDroop to me.

    This is starting to look like Phenom I all over again, minus the fact that TLB erratum wasn't really reproducable and easily avoided by most users.

    I don't know. This is getting to be a real PITA as I see it. I had made some plans a few months ago and was going to build one of these systems. I had started to collect some parts and have some stuff on the shelf just waiting. I had imagined that they would get a handle on their problems rather quickly, but that isn't happening.

    I look now and it seems as if Bulldozer is mired in quicksand.

    I'll still collect my parts, but the CPU is the very last thing I'll buy, and only if the situation turns around a little. A Phenom Hex-Core would be good enough for me if BD is a bust.

    BSOD 0X..101 is voltage related, however, it's a bad sign when this happen at stock settings.

    The other ones are foreign. Go Figure. None in the US had this problem. Kevin, I will say your annoying as sh^t. You do not even own the processor and all you want to do is spread negative gossip. There are plenty that give it a good review. You fighting an epic waste of your time... We have one member who has it and says it ain't at all bad. AMD sends us chips and our News guy constantly bashes bulldozer. That does not look good for PureOC. Say your peace and be done with it. Sheesh.

    I wouldn't go as far as to say to say that there were "good" reviews; the ones I read all expressed some serious disappointment.

    Put simply, the software world just isn't ready for the BD architecture yet. That doesn't mean that the chips themselves are bad, there just really isn't anything to take advantage of BD's data processing methods.

    I know I've said this before, but this really is just like (or at least very similar to) Intel's situation with the Pentium 4.

Sheesh.
    I post news good or bad for both sides..check my post history. AMD is in the hot seat right now do to their recent product launch so yes, there's more news about it. Intel in the mean time is cashing in. When Intel dropped the ball you were there... were you not. You can bet if Intel done the same I'd be making post about it too.

    Also, how is this gossip?

    "AMD has been able to reproduce the bug, and is working on a fix."

    Since most of the reviews are foreign that makes it less credible?

    And for; ~AMD sends us chips and our News guy constantly bashes bulldozer. That does not look good for PureOC.~

    Pureoverclock.com is not bias toward anyone.. other top review sites gave bulldozer worse ratings than us... should they be concern about AMD pulling support? If not then why should we? Censoring the truth will get you no where in this industry.

    Kevin, I will say your annoying as sh^t.
    Resulting to name calling... classy.

    Everyone knows you're only supposed to use BD chips in lightly loaded Linux-based operating systems. None of that flashy, resource intensive Microsoft nonsense.

    But only text based Linux.

    Anything with a GUI will make Bulldozer benchmarks inaccurate.
