    I heard funny things happen when you disable the A cores in each module for a 4M/4C setup. I would try disabling the B cores in 2 modules and at the same time disabling the A cores in the other 2 modules. I've heard you can play with it, and some setups offer you better performance boosts.

    For Example:
    1st Module w/ A (Enable) & B
    2nd Module w/ A & B (Enable)
    3rd Module w/ A (Enable) & B
    4th Module w/ A & B (Enable)

    Need to play around to see what does better.

    Hope for what? :laugh: As you can see in the article that sure there are gains, but it's nothing amazing or anything. The chip is what it is. Meh, this is a discussion for elsewhere. :)

    I cancelled my order for an 8150 - the power consumption when OCing really concerns me.

    I've ordered a PIIx4 for now, with a plan to sell it on if a new stepping or better batch with better power numbers appears (e.g. the ones due in November) or the price drops a good bit, but not holding my breath for any of those or keep it until PD arrives.

    so are you guys seeing anything with the OCing to recommend it over the pII x6. I'm looking to up grade and was going to get the fx6100 but seems the pIIx6 1100t spanks it for the same price. I'll wait for the fx8120 to be restocked if there's any real benefit.

    Other than the improved memory controller and better performance in dual GPU setups, no there is no reason to go from a PII X6 to an FX-6___.

    Has that boost been confirmed? That's all that interests me about BD...multi-GPU.

    Not personally yet.

    I have confirmed that the last update to Deus Ex did not improve frame rate, but did get rid of the micro-stutter issue.

    right now I have a PIIx3[ unlocked to x4 ] @3.4. After reading around some more the OC head room on the FX seems to come at a high cost. Probably stay where I'm at for another year and just fight THE ITCH:ohwell:

    Believe me, that's no reason, unless you like building servers on the cheap.

    Sure server but common! Really I havent seen anything good about this cpu. You know im hardcore AMD Erocker but all the reviews and such keep my wallet closed till they fix the performance... Sorry not trolling but just pointing out my opinion.

    I have read every single post in this thread and besides the 5+Ghz clock nothing else has impressed me on this cpu. Can you persuade me Erocker why I should get a 8150 or 8120?
    Theres a company here in Canada that has the 8120, 6---, and the 4core 32nm chips listed as being in stock and I can order one today but is it really worth me to upgrade? I convert movies and game thats it, oh and LOVE to BENCH :D

    I WANT NUMBERS!!!
    I want to see that bugger running 5ghz and both your 6950s running Mark11 :pimp:

    No.

    As for Xfire and 5ghz. I'm not sure my 1000W PSU can handle it. Seriously.

    HD 6970 max. power consumption = 287 watts. x2 = 574w

    AMD FX-8150 @ 5ghz = about 420 watts under load

    420 + 574 = 994 watts.
