AMD Shows Off A10-5800K and FX-8350 Near IDF

It's traditional for AMD to camp outside an ongoing IDF event (at a nearby hotel suite), siphoning off a small portion of its visitors. In the backdrop of this year's IDF event in San Francisco, AMD showed off two of its upcoming flagship client processors, the socket FM2 A10-5800K "Trinity" APU, and socket AM3+ FX-8350 "Vishera" CPU. The two chips were shown running fully-loaded gaming PCs.

The FX-8350 was shown installed on a machine with ASUS Crosshair V Formula (-Z?) motherboard, liquid cooling, and Radeon HD 7970 graphics card. The chip was clocked at 5.00 GHz (4.80 GHz when the picture was taken), and running popular CPU-intensive benchmarks such as WPrime and Cinebench. The A10-5800K was shown running application demos, including a widget that displays real-time boost states of the processor and GPU cores.

They need quite a sizeable (10%+) performance gain with PD to remain competitive. I want AMD to be good, but I cannot justify getting a new CPU every year or so and still being behind Intel's curve. I can buy an Intel CPU like the Q6600 (which I did) and have it for 3 years (which I did) and it was still running fine, then upgrade to a new Intel CPU like the i5-2500k (did that too) and I guarantee it will be good for another 2 years at least. In that same time frame I would have had to upgrade my AMD CPU like 3 times and would still be behind in performance (would have had to go Phenom I->Phenom II->FX and probably gotten new motherboards). I'll take 2 purchases over 5-6.
Then you should complain to software devs and AMD about support in windows apps. Guess who's taking all the cash to provide intel only optimized code and using their compiler only (which is a cheater)?

Linux users have no problems with AMD's performance. It's fast. Software is the problem, not hardware (although there's plenty of limitations in BD).

Fully agree, Software is the major issue. And how to resolve this?

I think the real key is that just because AMD doesn't run as fast as Intel doesn't mean AMD processors are slow.

probly because it won't pass a 3DMark11 run =/
so it runs at 5Ghz and still gets beat by a core i3 running at 3.5
AMD is Disappoint
perhaps they will learn and throw bulldozer in the trash and hire some fresh talent and start over sad to see AMD like this
they need to realise that clock speed is no longer relevant
I might be new here :wtf:
But guess what? AMD Had to rush bulldozer and the sudden leaving of the engineers ruined bulldozer
And so off they have gone and in with the professionals ... i am smelling a good day ahead
OH, i don't know what you mean by i3 beat THE i3 is only good at single thread for sure.
The FX-8150 is the same price as a i5-2500k and the FX does things better.
Of course. Vishera. Forget about the BD crap and move on
