AMD's Forthcoming Flagship FX Processor Available at Ebay.
Glad its (almost) finally here.
well, UNLIKE him/them i DO remember the "happy times" when intel reigned supreme. look it up, fanboy? there was tick-tock then, right? every couple of years, a tick or tock, that was it kiddo...
and pentium III and celeron were DIFFERENT processors, not one sold at different prices? and whats-their-name tx/bx/lx chipsets (intel was only producers of its MBs then) wasn't the same silicon with locked clock ratios? IN FACT, INDEPENDENT MB MANUFACTURERS ALL STARTED THEIR BUSINESS CAUSE THAT INTEL CRAP
sure, THE GOOD TIMES. we should have intel monopoly again!
and you don't know absolutely nothing about CPU manufacture or market, jmlxg/AvonX kid.
personally, i wish YOU to live in your dreamland where there is only intel (oh, use their graphics too, they always ruled - i mean every GC intel ever made was uber-crap, and was sold in enormous quantities - mainly integrated, but so-called "real" GC also - look it up, why don't you?) - but i don't want it for myself. or the rest of the world
amd cpus may be crap compared to intel in enthusiast/middle segment, but no way in hell i'm spending 300$ on CPU who will wait for me all the time, built on 22microns or not. same goes for 250$+ GPU, btw
nearly every household has a computer now, often more than one. what do you use your for?
rendering? go intel!
compressing movies? go intel!
endlessly compressing/decompressing archives? go intel!
surfing/office/medium gaming? well, i7 is waste of money, i5 is crap for gaming (as APU) unless you buy GPU, therefore 300$+
understand than many of computers are used for light office, watching movies, playing flash games, facebook etc. intel flagships are overkill - sure, they wait much faster and it is well worth 300$. lots of people buy whole computer with monitor for 500$ or less. and are satisfied with them.
hopefully, you are wiser now, and will realize that i3 is often cap for home computers, and think more in that range. and we are talking about major market segment. not every household has pimple-infested maniac who braggs about his CPU test results whole day - mine has none, but has 4 computers (3 amd and 1 intel, all pretty old - but hey! all can run diablo3)
if i feel irresistible urge to spend 200-300$, it will be on bigger screens, hdds or something - NOT CPU from any producer. maybe next year i'll replace them all. or when i find them not doing their job fast enough. but not right now
sorry for a wall of text, and i know i fed the troll right now, but hopefully he'll share some of his "insights" now, so we can all laugh a bit
hey maybe you work for amd? making everyone sick of yourself, and intel altogether? HAHAHAHA, your dirty little secret is revealed!
And we get budget water cooler included in stunning 325USD deal .... woooow.
No matter what happens, AMD will always have faster CPU/APU/GPU/IGP than nvidia
Vishera is 10-15% better than Zambezi and an excellent value based on retail pricing at only $208. for the FX-8350 model.
In addition many people will be able to OC the Vishera CPUs to close to 5 GHz. on air, more under water and they scale well and use less power, so there is even more value for the technical capable. (Haters need not apply).
