As for folding, you're basically reiterating my point.
Yeah but will doubt it will be cost effective vs the 2600k the way this thing is looking. Especially if F@H is FP heavy they are screwed, but at least its decent in multi-threaded apps not like crazy good.

And i was kind of excited to see how BD was gonna bring and now I know what I am buying in the next 6 months unless Piledriver brings more then 10% performance increase over BD current lack luster creation.

I didn't say it was a good thing. I said I think the reaction is overblown.

This is a really sad day for computing, hopefully AMD can recover and learn from this although it will certainly not be easy after letting down so many people and certainly the largest part of the enthusiast community.
post #595 of 2308
I guarantee that AMD change their road map and scrap this architecture, it sucks. Man i was so looking forward to it..

EDIT: im currently ripping everything to do with AMD i have up i'm not happy, i wanted something that could beat my athlon single threaded, it can't ... just wow.

AMD I cant believe the inefficient piece of junk you made.

no wonder all those executives and CEO's left.

and oh yeah never trust people with an agenda in the company. JF-AMD is a politician.

quick question, just woke up to a massive 60 page thread lol and cant afford to read all reviews and all the pages to see if this was answered

did any review actually try to disable 1 core per module so that FX 8150 had 4 "un-shared" threads and see if it overclocked higher?

i'm guessing this approach would not only improve IPC sort of like what windows 8 scheduler will do (check final pages of toms review, 12,7% increase in FPS for WOW) but also cut back on power and heat, allowing more OC headroom

im thinking a 5Ghz 4Core (1-core-per-module) AMD Overdrive profile for GAMING would provide less of an embarassment?

SOMEONE PLEASE TEST THIS (or let me know if someone already has...)

Anand's article was a great read. Relatively decent concepts but the fabrication is not there. Maybe Revision 2 will be better.

All in all, a total bust. Another server CPU it seems.
