what cooling and where are your system specs dude
Corsair H80 with stock fans, other parts you can see in the link + Zalman 850HP power supply.
good system i might say.
I built my bro one with a x2 555BE, unlocked it to B55/955 BE (Stock cooler for that CPU)
I might eventually build a 8350 based or A105800K based machine
Thank you Actually i'd buy an FX8350 if it was compatible with my AM3 mainboard, it's a good overclocker, does it's job on highly threaded apps and so on but if i can get 3470K for the same price my choice will be clear, unfortunately.
...And 2x better than it in everything else.
Very few Phenoms II will reach 4.4GHz, TBH that architecture typically caps out at 3.8-4.1GHz. If yours clocks higher you are in a lucky minority.
More bulldozers and Piledrivers reach 4.5-5GHz than Phenom IIs do 4.1 GHz
I will say this is certainly impressive. Now make them come out of that out of the box and I might go and buy one.
did your board actually come with a bios update because I know AM3 supports AM3+ CPUs but AMD doesnt guarantee it, so its up to board makers to make that decision. I mean Asus and I believe Gigabyte did without a socket change. Hey what ever works for you bro, I just feel this helped AMD actually. If i was going intel Id be going skt 2011 with a IVB-E
This is testiment that we can push the CPU very high on air and water with all 8 cores. Good work for AMD
Agreed, but... I need CPU for gaming, video editing and transcoding only. Last two tasks are being done by GPU so all i need from CPU is good frame-rate in games and Piledozers failing at it.
Nope, unfortunately... The best i can throw in is Phenom II 1100T.
Edit. i swear the God there was post between mine two
And how does Piledriver fail? Benchmarks show it is quite competative and the cost is the best bang for the money.
On some single threaded games it needs to be overclocked to match Phenom II performance (which is ~60% cheaper) and that isn't good in any way. I was hoping from PD at least same IPC as Phenom's had.
ya your prev post there were two who had posted before i did,
nt300 i know your a lil irked, but honestly PD was a interim update- it is still the same design series as BD, its probably good now but it will probably be SR that totally replaces PHII in everything. Eventually PHII chips will runout and what will we have then, PD based FX CPUs and PD based Athlons to replace BD and Stars in the AM3+ market. Im sure AMD isnt finished improving the chips, they will keep refining them with newer steppings of PD till SR is ready to go.
FYFI13- there was no guarantee Single thread IPC would improve drastically. Im sure SR does it better than PHII and BD/PD.
I've seen Piledriver fail in gaming compared to Intel. But I haven't seen many indepeth reviews of the Piledriver vs Phenom II in gaming.
Show me the review of Piledriver vs Phenom II in gaming please.
sweet lord of sex kittens
WOW! Now this is really good news!
apparently, NAMEGT had 24 tasty 8350's at disposal of which the best achieved this feat.. talk about cherry picking the cherries..
I hope quality yields will be common (so that conventional cooling can achieve 5GHz or more easily) considering that PD is on a mature 32nm..
FYFI13, you've gone silent
I'm sure you are still digging out the Piledriver vs Phenom II gaming benchmarks.
It's OK. I know you won't repond or reply to my request.
hey, no one told its still the 90s
Me too , very impresed, another totally polarising thread
Looks good to me....
So it takes 4.9Ghz to reach close to the same score as a 3770K at stock? I maybe reading this graph wrong
So it takes an overclocked $219 processor to dust a $319 processor. I must be reading it wrong too
I'm going to start posting cinebench, so we can see the FX dust the Ivy Bridge all day.
Takes a 4.8GHz for the 3570k to beat the FX-8350 (4GHz)
I must be reading the graph wrong?
Who cares about cinebench?
Who cares about 3D Mark Vantage. I stopped caring about synthetic points years ago.
Come on, it wasnt just a question. We could all hear the sarcasm as you said it. If there was no sarcasm. My bad.
Who cares if the Pentium is better in Skyrim? It's just Skyrim!
Who cares if the i5 2400 is better in Batman: Arkham City? It's just Batman: Arkham City!
Who cares if the i5 2400 is better in Civilization V? It's just Civilization V!
Who cares if it's still behind in gaming? It's just gaming!
