Lulz.. nobody is crying here.. I see people reaching to defend AMD at all costs though! :p:)

Nobody is defending AMD. They are stating the truth. AMD holds the OC crown. Performance crown isn't being disputed.

If you want to talk performance open another thread. We are talking OC and AMD is top notch for overclocking according to "The world record".

I edited in examples. BD cant run Wprime anywhere close to 8Ghz so tough to compare apples to apples. So at 5.7Ghz (SBe) and 7Ghz (BD) SBe is twice as fast.

But yes, they hold that record.. absolutely. :)
But its irrelevant. WPrime is 1 benchmark. How can you base performance on 1 benchmark?

Also Intel always did better in WPrime. Pentium D used to outperform the Athlon 64 X2 in WPrime, and the Athlon 64 X2 was a much faster CPU overall. How do you explain that?
Maybe the same thing is happening with BD vs SB-E, at their respected OC record.

I want to end this thread or post with a fact. Fact: AMD holds the OC record @ 8.429GHz. :)

Unless the title was changed, this thread is about an Intel chip... until someone came in and mentioned AMD as a joke and then it propogated a bit...and then someone else came in and mentioned the BD WR in an intel thread..............defending AMD against, what I took as a Joke post, for no reason. Hackles - come get some.

For the record, I do not base performance off of one benchmark, its just an example. But there are plenty of other examples with the same story as you well know.

Hey, way to reiterate a point already conceeded again with the WR! :laugh:

You are very right, It's an Intel thread about OC'ing. It got derailed by a troll. I'm happy to talk about Intel achievements as long as the AMD bashing stops.

I'm actually hoping SB-E can sustain 4.5 GHz to 5GHz on air because I'm seriously considering buying one, depending on how it stacks up against Piledriver price/performance. I might be switching teams.

SB-E can run air 4.5Ghz all threads. You need beefy air to do it however 6c/12t puts out a lot of heat at those clocks! Much more than that, I would go water for sure.

Im hoping for 5Ghz+ 24/7 clocks out of the unlocked IB pieces though....... :)

A good bin :slap:? How about there are only two listed at Hwbot.


I have to imagine that 5Ghz+ on water with all cores is tangible. I cant imagine LN2 was needed to get there.

This also tells me that the turbo is up to 4.3Ghz, so thats interesting.

too bad a 5.7Ghz SB-E pounds on it in benchmarks though! One trick pony comes to mind. :D

SB-E 2.2s @ 5.7Ghz - http://hwbot.org/benchmark/wprime_32m/rankings?hardwareTypeId=processor_2470#start=0#interval=20
FX 4.2s @ 7Ghz- http://hwbot.org/benchmark/wprime_32m/rankings?hardwareTypeId=processor_2396#start=0#interval=20

See... again, thats not the name of the game with CPUz. The object is to get the highest score... that is achieved by disabling cores and using your strongest ones. Of course its not a 24/7 thing to do, its never intended to be that way for CPUz. This site just doesnt understand the demographic those numbers are intended for. ;)
This is what the car world would call a dyno queen. Only really good for putting up impressive numbers on a dyno, but not really useful anywhere where real performance is measured. Still a valid contest tho.

that said, I'm not overly impressed by these numbers.

i just think that since its a new socket. its a good start point that intel processor with socket 2011 could get oc well. so just hope they do better in the future

So from what I've gathered from this, the more Jiggahurtz something get's the better it is.
