Here's we go:
I feel somewhat unimpressed with the Barcelona so far, but what doesn't make sense is how much of a gain it gets from a small clock increase :-O
that's the first thing I noticed
2.0 ------ 2.4
39s ------ 32s
and that's just stock vcore, who knows, it may be able to go father with stock vcore let alone better cooler and more volts
this is beginning to make me think AMD is going for the same effect C2D gave, not incredibly impressive stock speeds but crazy overclock-ability
well i hope amd's going down the ocing road.
me freakin too bro...otherwise this isn't looking good for them...
cause while intel might be more expensive them amd at the same speed, i know the extra cash that intel charges will help me cause i can get juice out of that chip.
Well have to realize that Intel probably didn't plan on making their chips over clocking friendly, it just turned out that way. As far as over clocking at all sometimes we need to realize that we're only a small niche market and that they should be most concerned about speed at stock speed rather than worry about that 1 in 50th person that is going to oc
well its still slower then intel im getting 27.125sec @ 2GHz MEM 750Mhz 5-5-5-15
so im thinking this isnt going to come close but I might be wrong I hope I am as its just like 2-3secs faster then the current AM2's
this is still barcelona not phenom
That pi time is very similar to a E4500 stock... 2gig..
Like everyone is sayin though, I hope they can oc like the core 2's can. And yes that is a huge decrease in pi time for the small oc... Could be promising
Not long now though... Is anyone planning on getting one of those phenom chips on release day???
ona bad day @ 333 x 8 i get 21 secs ...
some more numbers for you
PI is meaningless for anything in real world useage. AMD has always suffered in PI while still maintaining the ability to do many other things very well. There are much more useful benchmarks to go by than PI........
can we get a mark bench? (aqua,3d,etc.)
and drumroll please!!! 3dmark06!!!!!!!
10% less then kentsfield? ouchy, hope the phenoms aren't like that..
Those Pi times make sense, they're both proportional to each other.
Well if they are they are in trouble with Penryn around the corner!! Damn my old S939 4000+ was almost as fast as that best Barcelona run in SuperPI
the 22s run was done at stock speeds? i doubt you 4000+ came close to that
dont you mean the 39.750s 1M or the 3m 22.953s 4M cuz even a C2D at 2 GHz gets almost 1m less in the 4M run
lol yea i missed the 3
lol I did to at first when you posted it
but I just hope the desk top cpus do better
lol yea or at least the oc like crazy
