^ So its running now. Did you find what the problem was?
Glad you found the problem Erocker
Heres quick Vantage cpu runs..
As soon as I become independently wealthy, I'm gonna get me a Bulldozer. But, until then, I'll be reading everything pertaining to it on TPU
A quick google search is showing me similar scores with a 2600k @ 5ghz. So BD doesn't seem that bad in vantage..
Ture but the 2600k does it at lower temps and significantly less power draw.
at least, its not totally like the phenom1 disaster...but similar. at least, BD is useable for something... PH1 was just utter crap.
300 Bus Speed? Wow, that is super high.
good boards are able to do that... very good boards even higher
Though completely off topic I was doing that with s939 boards. Nothing new.
My single stage cooler is Vapochill LS stock (unmoded 2005 release), it has no chance to hold BD load @ 1.56+ Vcore 4C/8T. So I set C6 enabled in bios which in windows will idle @multiplier 7 (2093Mhz) and keep the heat load low before start benching.
Actual CPU @ 5.39Ghz benched
what type of RAM u use on the tests ?
i might join the club tonight if DHL is in time ........
@n0tiert..Its Gskill RipjawsX 2X2GB 2133 8-9-8-24
what is the power consumption at those settings? and what was the power with your 2600k with same parts? (doesn't have to be exact, rough estimate is good enough)
Also would really like to know how your experience with gaming on BD was, once you've done some runs.
Very true. :shadedshu
Lucky I have lotsa water cooling
60fps avg. in Mafia II benchmark (no PhysX). That's pretty good! ...I think.
In terms of pure gaming, is BD what you expected it to be or unexpected?
And which games from your testing has it really excelled in? Where you can see a noticable difference?
I don't know.. It work.
I've tested Mafia II so far, 60 fps avg high settings PhysX off. Is that good?
What do you guys think about Bulldozer in terms of crunching?
I don't. I'm sure an Intel processor would be a better choice.
Hmm Ok, I was under the impression that the newer architecture was faster in terms of math
While the 8 threads may help, the single core achetecture is definitely slower.
So what benchmarks/games (I have Fraps) do you guys want to see? *Updated my system specs too so you know what I'm working with. I can do head to head bench's with the 2500K.
Hmmm thanks erocker!
hmmmm running same with 955@3,6 with HD 6990 ram@1066 +/- 1 frame
So I suppose that is good? I need to try running it on my SB rig.
