AMD Conquering 3GHz: Athlon 64 X2 6000+ CPU Review
don't get delusional, the current AMD cpu just plain suck.
i'm comparing donkey with donkey and not donkey with race horse. something you prolly don't understand and hurts your AMD fan boy ego.
I should sleep more...
After the AMD fan boy laughed(hard) at the Intel fan boy willing to pay high priced poor performance p4 instead of lower priced better performing AMD CPU, now Intel fan boy laugh at AMD fan boy willing to pay premium price for lower performing AMD CPU.
Am I the only one seeing the irony here?
get real and trade your stock options for something else.
And where did I write with for AMD to leave the market place? Here you need to help me cause I can’t find it. Sorry.
AMd leaving the marketplace would just give Intel the opportunity to raise the price of CPU like they did in the past. But don’t praise AMD for that because they aren’t church kids either, even them did raise their price when they had monopoly of fast CPU.
“No they don't suck, they are just a design generation older than C2D, and that shows in games and encoding/decoding benchmarks, but they still kick ass in some very important areas.”
If you ask me yes AMD CPU suck for two things, they use an old micro-architecture and they are expensive. I’ll leave nostalgia to you.
Check the 5600+ review and tell me you expect this CPU(6000+) to do a LOT better compared to a 5600+?
I hope AMD will come back with something that's up to the c2d because right now it's like AMD caught the p4 disease.
Got to love biased people.
And if say "45W more power consumption" and "no overclock"?
That's the inner meaning of "sucking".
Glad not to see it.
So the results are biased.
C2D is usually better clock for clock however the difference is pretty small compared to "palying" benches.
Intel has the fastest platform at the moment. But I have yet to see intel maintain that leadership for more than 12 months. I bet intel can't do that. We've still haven't seen any Core chips above 3GHz.
And that's not without a reason. Overclock doesn't mean a thing. I've seen a 7GHz Pentium 4 chip so think about it.
Intel is @65nm, AMD is still @90nm and yet AMD is able to do (almost) the same thing intel can @65nm. So intel will need to switch pretty quick to 45nm if they want to stay ahead of AMD
So if you're an intel fanboy you better be careful because soon AMD will laugh at your face.
Remember Northwood? I still remember the intel fanboys back then.
Core 2 Duo is the same story. Soon AMD will take the performance crown back from intel. Intel won't even manage to keep the lead over AMD for more than 12 months. Mark my words.
I see that there are many AMD haters speaking up right now. I mean what is your peoples problem with AMD? AMD has a better platform compared to intel. Now you don't hear too much about it all because intel cpu's are on average faster.
Once AMD restore their performance lead you'll understand why intel has only been "lucky" for a few months.
AMD will be the nr1 chip maker in 2009. Intel has the fastes chips at the moment but in the near future they'll need a lot more than just fast processors.
The Config..in AMD is Though but when you Know how to do it the AMD will Win with Intel CPU, the most problem with AMD chipsets are that there is no good Mainboard for this CPU because it is too NEW and Intel is showing only things that they had 5 years ago, so their chipsets are better Config... with CPUs, CORE DUO is nothing new it has only Buffer bigger nothing more nothing less so what can you say about that???
Buf...8mb or 4mb makes big change, so AMD must work with this problem..!!
For an architecture to last for three years and still be slightly behind of the latest processor that has a newer and advanced architecture takes a lot of effort. Intel can not be two to four times faster than AMD's old architecture, so they go easy on AMD by only going 1.25 times faster. That is their downfall when the K8L comes out.
AMD has Intel beat on total system price. Also only AMD systems provides nVidia's SLI which is more reliable, stable, and economical than ATI Crossfire which Intel supports on majority of their chipsets.
Sure we can get the fastest processors that can win all brag wars, but it does not help to improve total system performance and paying close to $2000 for a complete system.
I prefer buying AMD systems because they are still are half the price compared to Intel systems. Though, I suggest do not buying any faster than AMD Athlon64 X2 4600+.
BTW, yelling out gibberish while making your point does not make any point. Writing your yelling and raving in proper grammar will make your point.
