Its been noted many times that Intel CPUs do much better in synthetic benchmarks and crapy in real world.
Somebody call the BS police. Sorry man, you're way out of touch with reality here. Show me these "notes". :slap: I can uderstand someone having an allegience to a company (I guess). I'm just going to say that AMD does just as bad in the "real world" than it does at synthetic benchmarks. Which is does.

No, just not as good as a cheaper 2500K. Plus it took me quite a long time to keep the system from BSOD'ing due to issues due to the CPU. A few fixes in Win 7 took care of it. I felt that my PII 1100T was snappier/faster/etc. than the BD chip.

To each his own, it an unwritten fact that Intel CPUs are top of the list for companies to ensure compatibility, everybody else comes in 2nd to last. This and the unwritten fact synthetic benchmark utilities are targeted for Intel CPUs. But I speak of the gen of the Athlon 64 and the Pentium 4 era...

We will agree to disagree :D

No, I'll just go with fact and the knowledge from personal experiences. :)

Bahh your an idiot. You spend a grand on a cpu that you spend much of the time looking at girly postings in TGN section...Wow that takes Horse power for sure :laugh:. I never see anything you show what you do with your system or have I missed it while I been out working?
Like David (CP) says intel beats AMD in the numbers, but amd is way snappy. I agree. I played on an Intel monster as the local guy called it and to be honest I thought it was a tad on the slower side. But like I said its just numbers... Im sure code is and or written in software to favor one brand over another. Anyways just take what I said with a grain of salt :cool:

And I'll continue having fun being SLOW as you say hahahahah :rockout:
I encode shitloads of BD and Anime rips. The time saved was worth every penny.

And I don't find AMD systems any snappier than mine.

Big time snappier. I Have my 1090T back in and the BD up for sale... It was fun to play with and learned a fair bit about it but I lean a tad towards lower hydro bills. The BD is like a blood sucker! It'll suck as much as it can if you alow it.

You assume it's not snappier:) you haven't been on mine to compare. And didn't a wise man ever tell ya to never assume? Besides willy dont get you undies ruffled, I told ya to take it with a grain of salt :toast:

Idk. Mine wasn't :ohwell: It may have been more than my 1100t, but my 2500k really puts both to shame. I was really surprised with this chip.

mabey its my other hardware making it snappy. I did play around on a friends 2600k with my gpu installed and really I never noticed a difference but it just seemed a tad slower opening up programs and such. I guess if my system sells Im debating grabbing a 2011 mobo and a 6 core intel chip but.... im kinda tossing up what to get for future proofing for at least 2 yrs. 2011/1155?

I'm not going to even think about it until the 22nm chips are out for 1155. Skt2011 is just too pricey for my needs.

No, I have only built, installed and tested at least a dozen different AMD setups for people. I actually build more AMD based systems for people than Intel, because they usually just need the basics, and AMD has better low end pricing and bundles available most of the time. I have built and tested 2 6 core AMD setups for friends that stubbornly insisted on it for a gaming setup over Intel.

Not a single one of them was "snappier" than my Intel machine.

So when did AMD realize there chip was slower than Intel's Ivy bridge and slower in some respect to there Phenoms ?
