Yeah, sadly there is no competition whatsoever.
Ignorance is bliss
the x2 5000+BE was a good cpu
lets see that AMD have the x3 720be that is £100 and you cant get a comparable cpu for that price on intel
they need to just keep on doing what they are doing, i couldnt see the point of going from an x2 5000+BE to a intel e8200 or something when i could do phenomII
people who havea bit of cash obviously want to go for the higher performers
totaly derailed the thread now its a bash amd thread
Theese statements show that amd really got something up their sleeve, theyve been quiet the past.... 2 years...
have they had anything the past 2 years? no.
What do they have now, a competetive PHII, a very very very very competetive HD4xxx lineup, and is ahead schedual on everything! amd is finally back in the game if the same repeats as before.
Amd was abit cocky before too
And the fact that more people are buying amd now than the last 2 years says only one thing, amd is giving intel compotition, they are taking MARKET SHARE.
They dont even have to match intels performance! the value is what that matters to people!
LMAO..... I like a man that speaks his mind, even if he has to say F*** a few times to get there!
That's awesome. I hope they make a commercial. It can come on right after the truck commercials, get us feeling super macho......
intel fanboy find me the benchmarks to back this up
great... now's AMD's fbz turn!
this thread is full of nothing but THREAD CRAPPERS
1st time I heard that myself. Some benchmarks would be nice. It's my understanding the Phenom 9850 and 9950 matched the q6600 and the PII match the q9550 and q9650
Not really, the PII 940 is a bit ahead of the Q6600, but not by much, more in line w/ the Q9400. It's still a decent bit slower than 12mb L2 Yorkfield. Here's a nice comparison: http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showpost.php?p=3557964&postcount=1
In some apps kentsfield is indeed faster clock for clock than denab. Given the way current kentsfields overclock though I'd give the edge to current denabs, but the difference is negligible.
Its a good thing Intel processors have real cores too...idiots.
AMD is posting flame-bait. Any publicity is good publicity as far as I'm concerned. I wish they would run their mouth off more than this!
Don't that mean they get a infraction? (sorry man, I had to)
Take a look at both the performance and overclocking sections here: ........
I wasn't really including OC'ing, in that respect, yes, intel wins hands down.
But at stock speeds, my statement was about right. The 9850 and the 9950 phenoms
weren't as close to the q6600 as I was thinking, but the PII are between the q6600 and q9550 levels. Maybe I was giving AMD alittle too much credit, but I wasn't far off.
BTW, the original statement I was responding to said the PII were weaker than the q6600 clock for clock
Actually AMD really dropped after Phenom came out and failed. It started with the 65nm brisbanes, but Phenom just sunk it.
Pre-Phenom AMD = 11.70/share
Post-Phenom AMD = 2.00 (ish) a share
^ please dont forget a few stock splits along the road! You cant just compare prices like that.
Q6600 @ 3.59GHz - 5574 CPU SCORE
Phenom 2 @ 3.8GHz - 4921 CPU SCORE
Q6600 @ 3.71GHz - 2226 kb/s
Phenom 2 @ 3.8GHz - 1775 kb/s
SuperPI - 1M
Q6600 @ 3.73GHz - 13.734s
Phenom 2 @ 3.7GHz - 19.407s
That's just for start.. you want more?
Their stock never split.
FB-DIMMs have a theoretical bandwidth in that range. They have never achieved that throughput tho. FB-DIMMS are a rather large bottleneck in highly memory intensive apps.
I have to agree with this, although Phenom 1 did, in fact, suck. I tried my hand at the Brisbane chips, only to go back to the Windsors, as the F3 Windsors actually clocked better, and performed better clock for clock, especially the 2x1MB Windsors.
actually i would like you to go to the futuremark page and check were phenom II and the Q6600 fall onto the top 10 list.
no to actually furthur this super pi has always been a intel thing hands down. 3d06 is a bullshit test to different rigs could be as little as a driver change
go run a couple benches and i will happily post mine
top 10 list of performance or popularity ?
I can only find this
and neither are on it
actually i don't give a crap about the futuremark page, clock-to-clock Q6600 > PII 940
deal with it..
yeah yeah.. 3d06 is intel thing too, winrar too, from now on if in a test the 2 years old intel coal-burning stove beats amd's super overpriced pii 940 ass then we'll just know that that test is "intel thing".. everything is "intel thing" nowdays..
