    Dude Ask Chickin Patty!!! I ran an HD Encode Against his I7 @4GHz against my 940 3.7ish GHz clock.... he even said he dosnt know why the AMD got better marks in test #1 than the I7.... like i said.... This is real world.... not a test on some other site that just goes for whatever they go for cpu to cpu....

    Dude this is a great idea, a true I7 VS PII throw down. I'll put up my i7 at 4.0GHz and put up or shut up.

    That's what I want to see. A bench, with a common starting clip, program and settings must be displayed, as well as cpu-z and the results.

    I just don't remember that, but I am getting old. lol.

    Start a new thread. Make it like a bench thread. It will attract all the nutballs. lol.

    Intel :shadedshu tsk tsk looks like they will never learn......Maybe this will wake them up a bit?

    Does this mean that now AMD can sue them for damages or something? Does this open up something for AMD to get some money back that they lost over the yrs because of this?

    Welcome to June 2008.

    It doesn't matter. His "old technology/copied licensed technology" setup makes him do things faster/better than what an AMD setup would offer. Look at the ends, not means.

    Hey sorry to bring up a old post now Wile E but when you run $500 audio interface where sound latency is 1-2ms you will hear pops and that program I linked you to will show the problem of latency. Since intels just couldn't talk between the cores fast enough for the audio interface it would lag out. Its a common problem in the professional audio field.

    We did. It was a firepod for capture, and I can't, for the life of me, remember the external mixer we used, all done in Pro Tools, using mostly Diamond Audio plug-ins. This was all on a Q6600 based system (when they first released). Not a single latency issue, ever. No pops, no dropout, no nothing.

    I still have to say it's the hardware choices, not the cpu.

    That's partly true. A certain program (SANDRA?) tests inter-core latency and bandwidth, where Core 2 Quad still trumps Phenom.

    Well then thats amazing. I don't know if you know the company Native Instruments, but anyways my brother works for them and a bunch of his friends at work have that latency issue on all types of interfaces. Now it might be that its lagging in the PCI interface cause that unit you posted is a firewire hookup. I would have to do some more fishing to find out if its the PCI to CPU talk time with Intels thats killing it.

    I've also use the Firepod on a 2 x dual core MacPro (1st gen), with no latency issues.

    But I think you could be right, it could be related to the PCI bus, we did have issues with an M-Audio card that we tried first, but it was an older model, and thought that maybe it's age was the problem. Shitty drivers or something. And, afaik, the firewire on most modern boards run thru PCIe, don't they?

    Im not sure if they run though PCIe but if they do that would explain why its faster. Also M-Audio blows in general.

    lol. Agreed. We just happened to have it laying around. I think it was one of the very first 24bit models, but it was junk, so I don't remember.

    Yeah M-audio stuff is good for umm wasting your money on and or giving some one a gift that pretty much sums up the fact you hate them. Now for my interface I use a NI Kore unit and have never had issues with latency and I run it about 4-5ms live which is pretty good.

    i have tried an old 16 core AMD server vs a 8 core i7 server and the intel server still ran better it has QPI and HT makes up for the core disadvantage.


    oh and hypertransport isn't exactly new either its from 2001
