If they sell 1 of these, that will be 1 too many.

i call a 3570k and dual 660s to be a pretty awesome gaming rig.
ok .. so that is 640.00 .. you now have 260 to spend on monitor, HD/SSD, RAM, OS, PSU, Case, keyboard/mouse.

and who in their right mind would spend 400 -500 on 2x 660s vs A 400 -500 solo card.

I guess peoples standers of gaming comp are wicked low.

For Me ..gaming means 1920x1080+ , 60FPS+ High Qualty settings, SSD (for load times) 8+ GB DRR / 64bit OS.

I wonder how further can you push this thing on custom lcs :)
Probably not very far this is rumored to be a high leakage part designed entirely to overclock higher at lower temps with more voltage.



Low ASIC quality would be the same idea as a high leakage CPU, while a low leakage CPU would be the same as a high ASIC quality chip. Both have their place.

What a joke... can't believe there's fanboys out there with so little sense as to buy one of these at such a ridiculous price.
There are fanboys out there that had a 3770K and purchased the latest and greatest 4770K as well. The massive 5~10% unnoticeable in any application increase must really be worth it!

It's not the initial price, it's the upkeep - your power bill will double, from running the CPU, and from the air conditioning working overtime to keep your house cool.
You are quite full of it right now. At $ .08 kwh I feel like this extra 100W worth of CPU TDP will be fine. Mind you video cards broke into the 200w arena in the GTX4X0 time frame and haven't gone back since. Did everyone's power bill and cooling costs double back then as well or are you just making a mountain out of a mole hill?

I don't think it will overclock very well, 10% max considering its overclocked a lot as it is. 220watts is already insane amount power.
10% vs stock on air/water cooling? Sure. You have no idea what this CPU was designed for. Take it and stick some LN2 on top and you will start to get the idea. This isn't a "consumer" CPU, this is a one off buy me to overclock on LN2 chip.

Atleast this is cheaper and faster than a 2005 released Pentium IV EE (which costed 1K +) :laugh:
Don't forget the subsequent Pentium D EE which didn't even offer virtualization. Both of those mind you consumed more power than the AMD alternative, performed worse in all occasions, yet those owners weren't "fanboys". Weird how when AMD releases a CPU that draws more power, yet has notable returns depending on application it is ostracized. At least when I purchase an unlocked AMD CPU I can run a VM on it correctly. :laugh:

well, lets see, i got the 660s for 185 apiece, and when running in sli, they outperform a 680. they can push any game at 60 fps at 1080p. so, the 370 dollar configuration easily outperforms the 500 dollar option :nutkick:
so, that was $800 for the two gpus, the core i5, the motherboard, and a 16 GB ram kit. and an extra 100 for a nice 80 plus gold psu. I already had a keyboar/mouse/case/harddrive/os.
point is, not everyone needs a $2000 machine to play pc games.

a single 660 is fine for most games at 1080p. unless you insist on using MSAA, when FXAA works great at 1080p and higher, while not taxing the gpu. for instance, battlefield 3 at ultra, using fxaa at 1080p, 61 fps. sli'd 660s can handle anything on the market at the moment, especially when oc'd.

Yea and I have a $50 CPU playing those same games at higher resolution and higher settings. WTF is your point? Same price BTW ;)

i was just pointing out to neko that a 900 dollar gaming pc is quite feasable.
That's nice a $2400 one is as well. To bad this CPU isn't aimed at a gaming PC and rather a benchstation. So you point doesn't matter.

what $2400 machine are you going on about? besides, the point I was making is that one doesnt NEED to spend a ton on a machine. they can, but dont have to. that point makes perfect sense.

Most folks who are going to be clocking these chips will be sponsored by AMD to do so and get them for free.

I don't care how much money someone has, you don't make money by wasting it on overpriced items.

The difference is that, assuming those folks sold their 3770k setup, it probably cost them a couple hundred bucks max for the upgrade, and that upgrade is competitive for its price, even though it's unnecessary. Upgrade from an 8350 to this and you're talking about dropping ~$700 for a chip that isn't competitive for its price point and isn't a meaningful upgrade... it's just silliness.

There's no way this chip will even be competitive with the 3930k, and the 3930k is $300+ cheaper. It's insane.

I can understand buying it if you're a competitive overclocker - because let's face it, value doesn't matter in that equation - but other than that, you would have to be a die hard AMD fanboy and have no financial sense to buy this.

$700 for an upgrade you sure its not just $200 for the cpu to drop into the last gen of boards? 890fx supports vishera just fine.

Then I would not call you a gamer!

There are tonnes of games you can play on a $400 PC.
True that , but by gamer I don't think he means mahjong . I always thought real gamers spend $900.00 on SLI or crossfire alone . But u are right Minecraft plays fine on a $400.00 PC .

Biggest fail of the year. Releasing a $200 CPU for $900+.

Guess thats a good thing AMD. I mean, EA has won golden poo for two years and that bad publicity hasn't hurt them much.

A $200 CPU won't break the current 8.6GHz world record again on liquid. I'm sure there are plenty of groups waiting to break 9GHz with this CPU and would pay a mere $900 for the big payday they'll get from sponsors after.

only the ones with a ton of money spend 900 bucks on graphics. a $150 gtx 650ti boost can play almost anything.

A real gamer will play games on whatever they have, they don't care if they have to turn down the settings, they'll just play the games. The fact that you only have a $400 rig doesn't make you not a real gamer, the fact that you think you need a $900 rig makes you not a real gamer.:slap:

It's not released yet this a presales. MSRP has not been announced yet and there is an almost $100 variation in presale prices. That should be a big fat look at me. ;)

Gaming boards from Asus and the like run $300.00 to $400.00 with 4 slots of PCI.2 or PCI.3 and sometimes more and today on Newegg there are 10 different 7990s with the cheapest being $899.99 .Yes you can only use one card but why buy a gaming board . I don't know who these people are but if they are making it it's because people are buying it. I think it's all overkill in fact with i3 and i5 some gamers are actually paying more for GPU than CPU and getting good results .

I cannot currently select these links due to being on a .gov computer that doens't like "webads" anyone want to verify these?





I may order a 9370 if it's only $320 at release that's really not that bad of a price.
