I voted for Gulftown because I am Folder, I has to have 12 cores
Considering that a Intel Core i5 Quad is more than enough juice for all current games according to a lot of specialists, we are pretty many people spending more on an I7 he he.
voted for my i7-3930k
Voted for My E8400 long time ago , now i have an i5 3470
I already voted but I upgraded my cpu.....
Welcome to TPU!
That's a good chip, are you running any overclocks?
I'm running the PhenomTweaker software (which ). 1.2GHz idle @ 0.800v and 3.8GHz load @ 1.350v. So bordering on 4.0GHz with less than stock voltage. Idle power consumption is excellent too; I don't feel bad browsing the web with this thing. Passively cooled too.
golden batch chip
i think your 1090T could reach above 4.0 Ghz easily and with low voltage
i also vote for amd sempron
Stock Phenom 955 for my gaming PC and Celeron D 330 in my server.
EDIT: 50th post!
Aside from the FX/A series, this 2 year old thread is surprisingly still relevant.
Got it off eBay no less, back when the Bulldozer hype was in full force and lots of people were offloading their X4 and X6 chips.
I'll have to try 4.0GHz one day.
I try to support AMD where I can (graphics included) but I have no need to upgrade from AM3 just yet, though I'm glad to see the improvements they've made with Piledriver.
I'm going to build an FM2 mini-ITX system for my folks though. I'm thinking the 65W A8-5500: four cores and plenty of graphics power. No need to overclock. FM2 is supposed to stick around for another 2 generations so I'll upgrade again when APU power consumption comes down to <35W or thereabouts.
From 1998 to nowadays_ Pentium 350 (1800 U$D with turbo boost button !)-Pentium3 800mhz-
celeron 2200 mhz-Pentium4 with (800mhz FSB !)-Athlon64 3800 (2000 mhz)-Athlon64 4800 (2400mhz)-Core2duo 6420-Core2duo 6750-Core2duo 8400-i7 920-Athlon ii 250-AMD FX 6100-AMD FX 8150
Main rig went from a Intel Wolfdale E3110 processor on a X38 board to a Z77 i7-3770k
The HTPC is running a Intel Core Single celeron about to go AMD A8-5600k
Oh if we're talking about all of our CPUs..
Socket 939 FX53 on a DFi nF4 Lanparty > Intel E3110 with a X38 Asus Max Formula > Intel i7-3770k Z77 Asus Max V Formula
HTPC is on some intel 775 mobo with some cheapo celeron.
I went from athlon xp 2500>Athlon 64 somethingsomething>Athlonx2 5200+>Pentium 4 dualcore at 2.5ghz(laptop)> Phenomx4 II 925> PIIx4 955> Core I5 3570k These upgrade were all within 6 years haha.
i5 750 @ 4 Ghz... still reliable....
Intel i7 3930k for me, found my old box so thought of taking a pic of it for the gist
edited it to a smaller pic.
A 4.5 years old AMD Phenom quad core. But I love it!
Well some statistics right now!
Total voters: 999!
Who will be the 1000th voter???
809 votes for Intel CPUs and 408 for AMD.
Thus ~66.5% of TP users prefer mama Intel
i7 3930K / i7 3770K / i5 3570K
hey I still have a good old q6600 running @ 3Ghz and i still love
and a old q6600
Q6600 on main rig
I3-370 on laptop
Pentium dualcore E2180 on my linux machine.
Ehi, where's the pentium dualcore?
edit: is in the old thread where i've already voted
Where are the intel pentiums? (they still make new pentiums)
There is a new thread, but it's not sticky.
