    Make your point and leave the thread alone. I nor any other moderator are going to tolerate insults towards other members. Grow up or get out. :slap:


    VV NP Wile E. It's good that members don't tolerate this type of garbage either.

    You know, your post could've done without those 2 little comments, and it still would've made your point. That was completely unnecessary. :shadedshu

    EDIT: Sorry erocker. Cross posted.

    And Clock for Clock, the PII is weaker than the Q6600. Stock speeds has nothing to do with that statement. As Tatty already pointed out in his link, at stock speeds the PII 940 outperforms a Q6600, but when both are overclocked to the same speeds(3.6GHz in Tatty's article) the Q6600 takes the lead. The issue is that the Q6600 comes at a much lower stock clock compared to the 940(2.4GHz vs. 3.6GHz).

    well if that dont scream intel fanboy? ask freaksavior and several other member i run both right now i have AMD but i have run C2D, C2Q , P4 list goes on

    performance phenom II holds some very high spots

    i never said that i siad you have 2 different systems with 2 different OS's if you want to compare systems go for i name a benchmark and i will post scores with my system.

    how about sciencemark2? thats with cheap ram and a 320GB seagate 7200.10

    I know it held the world record on 06 but I can't find that little chart. It seems to me that 3dmark is a little bit corrupted it says the most popular cpu is core i7 when it really isn't especially compared to some of those on the list.

    The Q6600 vs. Phenom II debate must end. Also, keep tabs on what you're typing.

    Nothing like coming home and seeing some grade A hate :laugh: Chill people. AMD's just trying to get their existing server customers to stay with them.. They have valid points in that interview, he just so happened to mention that real men use real cores. This is the server market, not the desktop. Of course the desktop market Intel has the highest performing stuff.

    Bold statement there AMD, about time they grew some balls... too long (i feel) they have been cowering in the corner repeating

    "no not the core2duo, dont make me use the core2duo, why a core2 why, precious phenom i loves the precious"

    ATI killed AMD as much as the Core 2 and 65m process. It was a 1, 2, 3 punch which left them scrambling for financing; hence, this:

    Realize that Phenom isn't a bad architecture, it was just delievered on a horrible process making an otherwise good processor, bad. Little changed from Phenom to Phenom II except the move to 45nm and finally got themselves off the cursed 65nm process.



    Correct, I remembered the wrong figures. Anyway, 7-8 GB/s is still excellent (gotta love the write performance).

    You might notice the odd edit, the odd post removed. A certain person couldn't choose his words well, and others didn't read moderators' posts well. Please proceed with the topic. If you feel there is nothing you can contribute to this discussion, do not post in this thread any more.

    yea, I wondered why there was 66 replies then I refreshed and there was like 61 lol, I guess some people get too worked up about pointless stuff, AMD is far from dead just because it can outperform i7. It's a good choice for a budget system, end of.

    like mentioned above AMD is very nice for some budget systems and if they try a bit harder they will be on top again (hopefully) and the market will be a better place for everyone (hopefully) if it werent for AMD we would still be using Pentium I.

    Actually, it's a lot better. I went from the Q6600 to the Phenom II 940 and it rocks. It's a lot faster in gaming and apps to :p

    dead , no they was sleep after athlon 6000x2 , the worst product was phenom x3 and x4 , but now they rise up again with phenom II
    AMD still doing well with servers cpu's , no fail at all but you know my friend there is something called performance and numbers are talking , maybe intel have better performance but still amd sell cpu in cheap price and that's what is make AMD cpu as good option for many people me as first one

    If memory serves, AMDs tend to have better FPU performance in addition to being cheaper so if you're going to buy 60,000 processors, they tend to be favored.

    Once you mix in the economic troubles, AMDs lower prices tend to move a lot of product.

    Intel may be faster but the circumstances currently don't weigh in their favor.
