Is the phenom faster at video editing? Yes. Image editing? Yes. Encrypting? Yup. That dual core won't last and won't suffice for long. Quad cores are much more typical for today. I went from an intel dual core to a quad core, and I notice the difference in many fields.
Temperature - excess heat? Huh?? Never heard of "excess heat". The phenom II is warmer, but no "excess heat" there. I lol'd at that.
Power consumption means nothing to me.
BC2... I showed that the Phenom II matches the 2500K there. LOL.
Balla, I facepalm every time I see a post of yours, you'd rather comment as little as possible. I'd rather attribute importance to real world settings, not settings and resses from stone age.
Could you please use complete and coherent English sentences, thanks.
Well if gamers want to push their systems to the limits they'll see the AMD bottlenecking them with any high-end GPU or dual-GPU setup. Pushing the limits and AMD don't really go together.
How many people encrypt/encode/edit honestly? If you do these things it's probably for work in which case you're using an i7. Again, for general usage the i3-2100 would be just as fast. Programmers are moving towards mobile devices and application-based operating systems. The vast majority of computers sold today are still dual-cores.
You're still neglecting the i3's hyper-threading.
Power consumption means nothing to you, good for you. Nobody cares. I think everyone else would rather have a lower TDP and less excess heat if they have the same performance.
Again, the i3-2100 is faster than the Phenom II in heavily threaded games such as BC2, consumes less power, and produces less excess heat.
I guess you need a physics lesson too. In general, when something is consuming/drawing more power, it's also getting hotter. Hope you learned something today, then again you don't see to be too quick on the draw.Edited by MinitroN - 10/6/11 at 1:27pm
