Pretty sure that graph halfway up the page is at 1920X1080

I'm personally a Intel fan. I was on a budget and got what i could, im not disappointed with my rig.

Both are great companies. Also Amd products keeps Intel's pricing in check.

Solved: is there anything comparable amd and intels side by side wont do?

A bit faster here or there, one crunches better, games play, software works.

I own both and enjoy both.

Continue on the play ground

I don't see BD beating the 2500K in the price/performance segment.

So you need something better than any AMD processor, since the i3-2100 is faster than any AMD processor.

Again, the i3-2100 at stock is faster than a Phenom II at 4.0ghz. It uses less power and produces less excess heat. Such a dead horse.

Optimized for Intel? Could you please provide some relevant information to back up this wild and baseless claim?
As a user that has an unlocked 550BE, I haven't observed ANY change in perfomance when unlocking the cores, so yes, it is intel optimized.

Quote:
The i3 has a much higher IPC, it's a much faster processor, that's why it's faster in SCII, a highly CPU-dependent game.
Because it is intel opmitized, correct.

Quote:
As for general usage, sorry to break it to you, but you're not going to see a difference between a Phenom II X4 or a i3 in youtube. Last time I checked any dual core CPU is plenty fast for general usage.
Are you making a fool of yourself on purpouse? Do you even think before posting? Where did I mention "Youtube" specificaly? Concerning applications that can use all the four cores - the i3 gets spanked.

Quote:
Why does Intel need to release an unlocked i3 when the i3-2100 is already faster than a 4.0ghz Phenom II?
No, it is not. Worshiping to Intel needs to be over for you, it is not good for your health.

Quote:
Not sure what's common knowledge to you but the i3-2100 is faster than any AMD processor in any game, including heavily threaded games like BFBC2.

Notice how the minimum fps for the 2100 is higher than that of the fastest AMD processor, the 1100T.
Low detail game, with lower res than usual.

http://www.guru3d.com/article/core-i...600k-review/21

Quad core Phenom II is on par with 2500K/2600K when the game is on the right settings.

Maybe you should get your facts right before espousing crap that's absolutely false.
Stop living in a movie. It's quite sad how you bash AMD at their own forum. It's sad that boredom affects your life that much =\\

Again, you're making baseless claims without backing them up with any evidence. No, your word doesn't count for anything. As I have shown in the BC2 benchmarks, the i3-2100 is faster in multi-threaded games than all AMD processors.

How many general usage programs/applications use all 4 cores heavily? Oh yeah, zero. Unless you're running Cinebench all day the i3-2100 is faster than the X4.

1650x1050 isn't that low of a resolution and the i3-2100 still show's it's advantage there. What about future games that are even more processor intensive when the i3-2100 will inevitably have a larger margin?

At the very least it shows that the i3-2100 will perform on par with any Phenom II processor in games yet consumes much less energy at load and produces less excess heat while costing the same or less.

Recent first hand account of switching from Phenom II to SB:

You haven't showed any proof that can reflect something. Low res games and low detail games don't count, neither games that are intel optimized. A google search will reveal that I'm not the only one that don't gain any FPS from unlocking the cores.

1680x1050 is lower for gaming purposes. FHD reflects what gamers use the best, so no, your benchmarks don't mean anything. However, the benchmark from guru3D at FHD does.

For general use - not only image editing, video encoding will be a lot faster, but also other tasks that utilize some of the Phenom II horse power.

About the power consumption - so? What do you want to explain with that? It doesn't mean a lot to a person that has a sufficient cooling and power supply. It is not a disadvantage of AMD. And no, it
is not faster in games, only in those that are intel optimized or/and games that don't utilize all of the phenom II cores. This will be improved in the future.
About the link you provided - the user stated that the AMD system didn't disappoint him, and most of the advantages (of the 2500K, not 2100 (???)) are OC ability, power consumption and thermal performance.

I think I'll stick with my AMD despite your ridiculous theory
