A shred of legitimate hope for AMD has finally emerged. Hopefully that 40% IPC is for real. And that's not from PD, that's from Excavator.If they can't deliver on this I don't know how they're going to survive.Core scaling isn't linear (especially not with Bulldozer) and you're also forgetting that Zen has SMT. And we don't know how effective Zen's SMT is going to be compared to Intel's, so any comparison involving taking data from i7s is irrelevant. IPC also depends on...
Don't think so as it continued even without the keyboard plugged in...
The past couple of days, whenever I boot up Windows 7 on my computer, the spacebar keeps mashing constantly whenever I do anything (namely, type in my password, making the problem rather severe). Luckily, I had enabled the guest account, so I tried going on there. Still no dice, as immediately the start menu opens and the search bar begins filling with spaces. However, after logging off of the guest account, the issue subsided completely. This apparently is now a trend as...
Six integer pipelines, 256-bit FMACs... AMD better not disappoint this time. Can't deny being a bit excited for the first time in a couple years.
How on earth are you measuring power consumption? There's no way your 7850K alone is drawing 184W at stock.Though you are right that TDP and power consumption are not the same. TDP doesn't precisely mean anything really; it's just an estimate given so that OEMs and manufacturers of other parts have a general idea of how much heat is emitted and how much power is consumed by a given chip. Hence why small HSFs are often only rated for 95W chips, etc.
Jesus, this thing must have a die size of a square meter. Packed with features. Now if only they can at least compete with the single-thread performance of SB...
Price includes USPS Priority shipping. If you only want one or the other the 80GB will be $15 shipped, the 320GB $35 shipped. Bitcoin preferred, PayPal accepted. The former was used as a backup drive for a short period of time and the latter was used in a laptop for roughly one year. Both are in good condition and work well. Thanks!
Price includes USPS Priority shipping. International shipping will cost more; PM me. I prefer Bitcoin but will take PayPal. I will ship with the two antennae as pictured; if you really want the Intel antenna that comes with it (has a ~3 foot wire leading to it) please let me know as I am currently using it with another system. I can provide a low profile bracket if necessary. Full disclosure, the drivers for this card were not good when it was new, and I can't say...
Why didn't this board come out three years ago when there were no AM3+ mATX boards on the market whatsoever (other than, of course, $60 760G 3+1 pieces of junk that can't support a >95W CPU)? I can't imagine anyone's looking to buy into the AM3+ platform in 2015.
This would probably be a good thing for the market and the industry. Access to larger cash reserves and quality, in-house fabs could probably turn that abysmal CPU department around. Too bad this is probably nonsense. As far as x86 license transferability, I'm sure that the feds and the EU would definitely not be happy with Intel disallowing that...
