AMD bulldozer worth waiting for as a renderer chip?

so anyone have the low down on just how this will compare to a intel 6 core i7?

I only have past chips to go by, so using that as a point of reference I'd have to say that Bulldozer will perform on par with four core Sandy Bridge.

I used to follow AMD very closely but I just don't anticipate them coming out with this marvel of a chip that takes the industry by storm. Doesn't mean it would suck for rendering, I just don't see it on the same level as Intel.

Intel has been better in the TPD dept. too. All these big, fancy computers make the electric company very happy.
