[Official] AMD Bulldozer Reviews Thread - Page 79

post #781 of 2308
to the people saying IBM should make processors, i didnt think they had the x86 license, so it would be more PPC that no one develops software for.

It comes dead last pretty often...
Why don't you look again. That is at stock.
When OCed, it does pretty well: http://vr-zone.com/articles/amd-fx-8.../13694-10.html

"At these settings, the system is idling at around 195W, but when running the aforementioned Prime95 stress test, it pulls an immense 550W from the socket. If we also add a fully loaded GeForce GTX 460 1GB to the mix, that number spikes up to almost 800W. Obviously, no one runs a CPU and GPU stress tests at the same time, but this does illustrate what the worst case scenario could be when it comes to power consumption."
Yes, i saw that and i understand it, but i doubt that it will pull THAT much power in standard gaming sessions, Prime95 is designed to stress it and load it to the max, a regular game will not.

See this is what i don't get, we are on a forum for OCing enthusiasts, but to prove one product better than the other, people pull stock numbers out. No one on here cares about stock performance, people care about OCed performance. I'm not saying that the SB cpus are bad, i think they are great too, but for around the same price or less, i could get a 8120 or 8150, that when OCed can match them. Maybe i am a "Sees/Hears what they want to kinda individual," however people who are saying Bulldozer is pure and nothing else, but flop, are just the same type of ignorant.
AMD has made progress, and will continue to build progress with it, a new architecture of any hardware generally takes 1 to 2 generations to get going properly.

But go ahead and keep the flame train going... Talking about the architectures ups and downs is one thing... but to call "outright fail" on a chip that CAN best a 2500K consistently in some workloads, thats funny...

(I would like to point out that in no way am I saying BD is "great" or better than a 2500K.... Just that there is far too much negative commenting going on and its simply beyond reason...


I had hoped AMD would put something out which would trounce my 5ghz 2600K and induce me to part with my monies.

for me it's an epic fail.

The use of the word epic bothers me, sorry to rant.

And I agree that bulldozer may not have met expectations but the expectations were brought along by the community as AMD never dropped info or flat out said that they would be better than sandy bridge, ivy bridge or whatever you wish to compare too.

I'm glad that they put out some new architecture, and a little disappointed it isn't faster but thats why we all should be glad we have options. Also as people mentioned, in multithreaded applications the chips are performing extremely well, and for some of us that makes them worth their premium, and others it may not, but to call the chips fail, before they have been out and the patched windows kernal comes out is unfair.

Well, that means I'm going back to Intel. Either Sandy Bridge-E or Ivy Bridge!

I disagree a bit. Let's not forget the real core push by amd. It seems to indicate real cores aren't really all they made them out to be.

AMD fanboys say for a year that Bulldozer will run over Sandy Bridge like nothing, and when it loses like expected, it's suddenly OK because "Intel has far more money to burn in R&D"?
