thats great news i think if i got DDR3 i will get them or the Trident
Nope, because Intel will be releasing i9 around the same time. Hexacore + HTT. Intel will still be on top.
so if this is true i should get a X58 if i have the money?
Probably. It still has the best upgrade potential of all the platforms. You just pay a premium for that potential in mobo costs.
how much money do you want a 17year old to invest?
1000 dollars,roughly estimated? i dont think intel can beat AMD in price, even if they claim like 10-15 percent performance more,and 4 more "virtual" cores with the i9.
don't forget i don't have a job I'm looking at a i5 setup. It would be around $400 or a new mobo and a Phenom II
PII would be about $320. What would be better i5 750 or PII 925
the i5 would clock better... at least that i now know
so i would have to think about if it would be worth the extra money... I'm starting to think i want to grab the Destroyer and PII 925 and be done with it. I know it wouldn't be as upgradeable but it would just give me a reason to buy a new board and ram later on which in turn would mean another rig for crunching on
6 more virtual cores. i9 is 6 real + 6 virtual.
at least you will get 4 slots for acceptable money
sorry wile, i thought it was an octacore... magny cours should have 12 real cores, am i right?
do you believe the i9 can win with 6 "half" cores...? i would consider 2 threads worth a core...
I can see any advantage to that... When i upgrade have a quad crunching and have the video cards i have now folding... But i would have to have a beefy PSU for that ... I think the Destroyer is in my future(or atleast it will be if i get the $$$)
Yes it is a 12 real core and the i9 is 6 real 6 HT. I can see 12 real cores beating 6real
dependant on the cards, between 700 to 1200 watt, i believe. but about 800 for 4 8800 gt, if im right.
i just wait for the first benchies
just alittle short of my 710w PSU that i have... Hmm maybe when the time comes i will just get a PSU for 2 of the cards and run the other 2 on the main PSU..
BTW if i get the parts i am wanting i will PM you with benchies
I am also waiting for the benches of the 12core chip vs the i9 should be a nice show
Magny has not been confirmed to ever come to the desktop chipsets in 12 core form.
that is true.. Last i knew it was confirmed to be coming to a server(coming to a server near you)
they should better do, or they will loose a customer. i want progress,dammit!!!
you could just switch over to a server board and FB-DIMMs if you want 12 cores that bad
you know how much these boards will cost... and i have to buy new ram, nooooo!!!
I don't think it would be worth it. give them time.The way it is going 12core will be to desktop before you know it. maybe not next year but a 1-3years from now i bet there will be a 12core
keep in mind most of the time AMD puts out there server chips then the desktop chips follow not too long after
and i want software and games supporting it, yay!
give that about 5years there just now starting to support 4cores on alot of things
quadcore must become standard
how complicated is it, to transfer a game or app to bigger multicore usage?
no idea i suck ass at programing. But from what i have read it isn't that hard and alot of games/apps can be "patched" to run multicores by the developer fairly easy
reminds me of gates "64bit prophecy", 10 years ago...
I want the i9's and the magny cours's to hurry up and come out... So, the i7's will drop in price and just buy 5 or 6 of them and cluster them... hehehe
