i'm sorry but something looks funky about those power consumptions numbers. Enough so that they are misleading!

yaaahhh!!!! these should give a solid blow on AMD's balls!!!

these chips are good!

Not far from the truth, but AMD receiving a blow to the balls would never make me happy, even though their fanboys often make my brow twitch with their ridiculous arguments.

We need another strong player in this market to keep prices down and push both of them forward! And anyone who's rational enough would agree to this.

@anti-"AMD fanboy" - if I were you I'd actually call 911 for AMD's help. With every news bit about another Intel success and AMD bugs and delays it looks like AMD already have one leg in the grave. Do your really want an officially monopolistic Intel???? Are you ready to return to the days of paying $800 for a mid range CPU???
0 0 [Posted by:  | Date: 01/07/08 10:00:01 AM]
then go get a job if you can't buy a decent processor!

monopolistic crap?!?

AMD might as well be the next VIA! Intel is just gunning for a reduction in AMD's market share... helping AMD as a consumer?!? that is crap! they dug their own mudhole to begin with...

even Intel's mobile chips are impressive...

0 0 [Posted by:  | Date: 01/07/08 12:00:45 PM]
What's that s**t about getting a job??? what's that has to do with it?
How many people would tell you that they wouldn't mind paying $800 for a CPU when they could pay $250 instead???

Are you looking for ways to burn money? Has your bank manager called you to ask that you take some of your money back cause it's cracking the safe' walls?

How mind numb can you be for thinking that my unwillingness to burn extra money on a CPU means that I don't have the capability of doing so? I know people who make 3 times more than I do who won't be willing to spend that much on a CPU.

I'm not saying to support them as a consumer, as you've learned I care a lot of what I'm doing with my money, so I won't buy crappy components. But I'm also far from being glad at their fall like you...

@STB - dude! its a priceless thing to see AMD fanboys squirm from every benchmark that indicates AMD has a pathetic product!

its fun!!

Eh, they squirm alright, but you'll squirm also when you'll have to pay half of your monthly wage just to get "your" preciousss CPU, that Intell will gladly shove down your throat at an incredible price that will make you feel so much more accomplished as a man - you are an accomplished man that will gladly pay a ridiculously large amount of money for a CPU, that will make him feel like owning a Rolls Royce? cause that is what is all about; I'll be laughing my ass off when Intel will be again absolute top dog, and all those clapping mindlessly for them will be reduced to Celly buyers; happy shopping spree, this year was the C2D year, next one may be a Celly year - "from an incredible 399.99US $" - this is a very possible scenario; but I don't give a frack; the market needs competition to drive the technology forward and the prices down, so the sooner AMD starts getting back on their feet, the better; IMO

STB, don't bother. anti-"AMD fanboy" is too busy keeping it real... real dumb that is. Complex opinions just ricochet off him.
0 0 [Posted by:  | Date: 01/07/08 12:39:41 PM]
your conclusions are still insignificant! If AMD were topdog now, you'll also see ridiculously priced chips!! remember those $1000+ FX chips?!? what do you get out of them?? they're just standard chips with unlocked multipliers!

whoever has the better chip can control the pricing of their top-end lineup... as well as the bragging rights!

AMD has a share of the low-end spectrum of the market (a market with the smallest margin of profit)... they put this upon themselves! Do they have a performing chip that can compete even in the mid-range/mainstream lineup?!? the answer is NO/NONE!!!!

I suggest you start knocking heads with AMD and wake them up cause Intel isn't seating around! You call this competetion?!? AMD isn't competing.. they're just screwing around!

Intel makes a processor that gives us 150% performance of best AMD dual core and only 1/3 of its power consumption. Guess which company I'll spend my money on...

Yeah, it would be pretty boring for an 'AMD FANBOY'. What fun is there in seeing the X2 6400+ lose every single benchmark, whilst consuming 3x the power of a Wolfdale? LOL

Those CPU power consumption tests are meaningless without whole system ustage as well. Everyone knows motherboards for Intel CPU's use a LOT LOT LOT of power compated to motherboards for AMD CPU's. It's very misleading cheering on the low power without at least noting that.
0 0 [Posted by:  | Date: 01/07/08 04:15:15 PM]

I admit AMD got killed. It would of been more fair if they put a Phenom against the C2Killers. Im still surprised how much damage Intel did when they originally released the C2killers, and when AMD64's were untouchable.

We live in fast changing times.

AMD's chips will never compete against Conroe or Wolfdale until they
increase the L2 cache size.512kb per core on all their 65nm chips-even
Phenoms-is pathetic.Intel keeps adding cache while AMD keeps sub-
tracting it-no wonder they are losing the cpu wars!

You have to remember with a IMC AMD cpu's get less of a boost from bigger caches than Intel chips do.

And for the dumbass who said get a job LMAO. He probably makes more money than you, just is not an idiot with his money.

Only moron children who live in their parents basements would want AMD to die. Competition is good for the market without it things will slow down. Point and case Intel has already pushed back the release date on these chips because of a lack of competition.

No one is disputing intels chips are better, but if you think AMD dying is a good thing. You clearly don't have a clue.

What's with these dorks talking about $800 mainstream Intel processors when Intel is gonna sell these new chips at old prices?

If it's such a simple story as "no competition then higher price" then Intel would be raising prices ALREADY

Use some of those brain cells... it'll help

Voltages are not fixed Mr. Zoidberg. They constantly go up and down in small increments. So an E8200 could hover around 1.2 - 1.1, the same as E8500, so simply the E8500's are cherry picked chips that actually require less voltage to remain stable.

shame you didn't include the E8400 in your overclocking tests, that cpu is the best bang for bucks out of the wolfdale range imo.

Does anyone else feel short-changed by the new chips. According to Moore's law the number of transistors should essentially double in this time frame. And it has. But those transistors also should bring an equivalent speed increase. Instead we get maybe a hardly noticeable 10%. Hardly enough to justify upgrading! Where are those 64 core chips? Sure looks like Intel needs a push if they are to get off their asses!
