    i think making new motherboards for ib-e is a losing trade for mb manufacturers. how many will upgrade to ib-e just to lower the consumption? most people who fancy 2011 dont care about consumption that much that it would be their main priority for upgrade. why bother with upgrade, when haswell-e will have a new socket? its a complete waste of money and material for no visible improvement. if intel want me to upgrade, theyd better present me an offer i cant refuse.

    I agree. Intel is failing ATM allowing AMD to race up their sphinkter.

    They gained some extra space might as well make it a 8core. But nooo :laugh:

    i actually have an asrock x79 extreme 9 with a 3820 i got only because i wanted to wait for ivy-e (pc atm). I plan on going to a six core with ivy-e. Your right some do need more comp power though as some use their rigs for more than gaming. The xeon users prob won't be complaining about anything though. Intel wants more of the everydayer/upgrade everytime a new ones out/facebookers-tablet-tweeters money

    Haswell -e if i remember correctly will shift the enthusiast line to 6 & 8 core cpus with the next chipset.

    Agreed, power consumption numbers look pretty impressive, especially for an engineering sample. If these chips are done right and use fluxless solder instead of that shitty thermal paste, they may well have a killer enthusiast chip on their hands that will clock past the 4.5GHz mark.

    They're soldered. There was a report of one being delidded a couple weeks back and it destroyed the die. http://www.overclockers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=733766

    that power consumption == where's my 8 core

    That's what happens when you get left in every other market. They still can't beat amd in cores per cluster and the server market is moving that way. Oh well let the performance hounds have their fun. Games still play the same between this and the 9590 at the same price.

    Word on the street has it that Haswell-E will be the one to have 8 cores. ;)

    On CPU heavy games? No way on earth, you are dreaming.

    Higher IPC from Intel CPUs also helps a ton on minimum framerates, average doesn't tell the whole story.

    Depends on the game higher IPC is cool until it is heavily multithreaded like most modern games and then AMD starts to take the lead.

    Don't worry he defends anything AMD like it's his own child, it's okay.

    You really are convinced of what you are saying :eek:

    Are you completely sure that an AMD Octa can/starts to take the lead on a multithreaded game scenario against an Intel Hexa?

    If so please show me proof because every single overclock review I've seen shows the AMD CPU way behind.

    There are multiple times it actually leads in minimum FPS.

    Heavy GPU bound situations do not reflect CPU performance, imho.

    I'm betting the CPUs here don't even get properly stressed.

    Throw in one or a couple more GPUs and you'll see the difference.

    Are those not acceptable frame rates in multiple AAA titles at a resolution people play at?

    Win loose or draw it shows the minimum FPS on the AMD side for multiple games. That means there is something within the AMD setup allowing better performance.

    You can argue GPU bound vs CPU bound all you want, but in the real world those graphs show it all there will be no difference in actual performance while gaming. Mind you that is a basically stock clocked 9590 as well.

    That game sucks.

    [​IMG]

    Two GPU's Dirt 3 and it is within 10%. I would honestly be curious how it did with one of the boards running PCI-E 3.0 vs 2.0. It appears to have madea huge difference with the intel chips.

    That's better, for sure.

    What I really don't like about the AMD CPU (for gaming) is the fact it blows on poorly threaded games.

    It's a really good multithreaded CPU but you can feel it lacks on the IPC department and that's a deal killer for me.

    They need to increase that to get back into the game and not get laughed at.

    Hopefully steamroller will fix that issue. For now AMD owners just have to deal with the added multithreading performance. This will be my first FX chip so it will be interesting.

    I personally couldn't give two shits how it performs at 640x480 I care about actual real world performance. If it can play my game just as good during eyefinity as an Intel why swap.

    Anyway, let's get out of gaming for a second, where GPU is way more important than CPU.

    From the same review

    [​IMG]

    Really shows you AMD has some serious catch up if they want to price their products where they have.

    Doesn't even begin to match a STOCK i7 hexa.

    Use an encoder that utilizes AVX or FMA4 and the performance is very close.

    That's the issue, to get the best performance out of it you need to use this and use that.

    Why do you have to compromise when you can get a product that performs well everywhere?
