    Ok, heres the thing.

    When a car does the world speed record down at laguna seca they are required to run a speficic course and they to do the return run. the record speed is the avarage of both runs.

    I said the same when intel pulled the same stunt at toms hardware a few years back. they took a northwood P4 and Liquid nitrogen cooled it to 4.something ghz.

    The record is usless unless its stable. any idiot can get a CPU to post at ridiclous speeds with the right tweaking. i want to see them complete a prime95 run or a 3dmark run. shutdown. restart the system and complete a 2nd prime95 or 3dmark run. i doubt that machine could do 2+2 in calc.exe let alone a prime95 run.

    Well, the car you mentioned, does the driver go to a store and buy some food and then get back to finish the run? Not really does he. The car has been specifically designed for that run. It wouldn't finish a race of 50 laps.
    It's the same thing here, this is how the frequency records have always been broken, the same way you do anything you can to be able to make a 3dmark run the same way you do everything you can do get a frequency record.
    That's the reason why all of those records are in separate "categories", every benchmark has it's own WR. Spend some time here: http://hwbot.org/

    Impressive! Now I want one... cheap... and with a wide range of benchmarks avaliable!

    No-one said it was a lie, they said it was irrelevant. Learn reading comprehension.

    No.

    It's significant in the fact that for the last 5 years AMD has not held the record. Nothing more, nothing less. If you fail to grasp that, it is you that needs to work on your reading comprehension.

    If this was an Intel chip a lot of the people on here would be saying "Game over AMD" and "Bulldozer just got bulldozed by Intel" and crap like that.

    Probably, but listening to AMD fans play the victims every time the mud-slinging comes their way is just as sad as the Intel fans slinging said mud. I just want to know something performance-related about Bulldozer. The World Record is cute and all, but as I said earlier, if the CPU doesn't perform well who cares how high it can clock?

    True. But ain't that the fun of competition? My teams better than your team? Nobody should be taking any of this personally. Even if bd mops the floor with eveything out right now, they'll still b someone saying naaaah it ain't that good. Haters gonna hate. Everyone agrees on the fact that they want more info and the chip itself though. Amd's exit from the benchmarking... whatever and the above top secret treatment on bd performance is something to think about though.

    God Every Single Post (other then Positives) Has Been This 16 Year Old Bull doody They Put Irrelevant As A Likely Term To Justify Something They Have No Interest In, And Probably Never Compete Even Close To There Level. (Capital's for every word so you can read).


    What AMD***EDIT*** And the Overclockers(showin some respect) was trying to DO was achieve a new FREQUENCY WORLD RECORD, LET ME RESTATE.
    NEW FREQUENCY WORLD RECORD.

    They did a great job to, Considering that INTEL has been the Previous Record Holder for the HIGHEST FREQUENCY CLOCK (CPU-Z).

    They were holding that record with a I. CELERON 352 LGA 775 with 1.9 volts @ 8308.9Mhz. For a while also.

    But AMD Just took an ENTIRE NEW PLATFORM, Used a Multicore FX, Disabled only but 2 CORES. Pumped 2+ Volts in it, and got a stable VALIDATION of 8.43Ghz.

    Thats a feat.

    Everyone's opinion is just as valid as the next. Reported.

    Intel did back in the p4 days. They got their asses stomped by K8, but intel still sold it as the fastest, highest clock etc. Even if amd is slower clock for clock if it clocks higher and then outperforms intel its still the fastest.

    The fact that the previous record was held by a Netburst Celeron should tell you something about how relevent or rather irrelevent this record is.

    The point that you seem to be missing that others are trying to make, and you helped show even though you didn't know it, was that just because the processor can overclock like a bat out of hell, that doesn't mean it is a good processor.

    The Celeron 352 is hardly a good processor. The netburst processors themselves were hardly good processors at that time. AMD was stomping all over them with their 939 processors at the time, despite lower clock speeds. The fact that you could push the celeron to 8GHz, and push it to 4GHz easily on air, didn't make up for the fact that the processor performed so terriblely clock for clock.

    The reason people are saying it is irrelevent is because no one is going run it at those speeds 24/7 and more imporantly without knowing how they perform clock for clock clock speed is irrelevent.

    Celeron. Intel Celeron family is a line of budget x86 processors based on Pentium designs. Thanks for telling me what I already new. It was made budget, features disabled, disabled cache.

    I don't think they were trying to break any records with a celeron when it comes to clock vs clock ratio performance. They were promoting mobile versions also, but calling out a Celeron for its terrible competition against clock for clock vs AMD's 939 brethren is hilariousness. I can understand completely about the 939 Low budget processors for more performance per clock but at same estimated market values.

    I understand when everybody says its irrelevant that fx bulldozer overclocked to 8.43Ghz, and its epicly ironically obvious no one's gonna be throwing liquid hydrogen on the CPU's 24/7 so ..

    We all know that Bulldozer is going to perform decent, and its not going to be overpriced, and probably be a cheaper platform overall. But many people can argue, find deals, and speculate.

    The threads title is about a Guinness Record clock speed, on how they achieved a record clock awesome, :rockout:. I did flame slightly because all I read in this thread was more speculation, free post about Ironic irrelevance about the clock speed, and 30% cheered on the OC feat itself. It is everybody's viable opinion to post what you want, but its just the plane statements about bulldozer and its worth as mostly bad compared to Intel Competetion. Where did Intel and Speculation come out of no where.

    But, no arguing. Because I realized (havnt loged on in couple months) there is just talk bash talk of bulldozer vs i72xxx k's.

    That phrase needs to be banned from the internet. Everyone's heard it, it serves no purpose, it's not even close to being humorous anymore. Please, get new material or better yet, stick to the topic.
