post #3131 of 8112
I have no problems with bench marks.
My 8120 (4.75) beats all the ones I set with my 1090T (4.2) and is the fastest out of all my mates which are my 3 old chips 955 (4.2) / 1090t (4.1) / i7 930 (4.2) and a 2500 (4) and a stock 2600k.
The only benchmarks Im getting beaten in are Ram by the intel chips since they are running triple channel and in single thread by the 2500 and 930 can beat them at 5ghz tho.

I personally love my FX-6100. It out perform's the QX6700 I had previously in every thing I do.

Heck just today I got an Iphone 3g and was syncing music to it. it took 18 seconds for Itunes to sync 11 songs to the iphone.
Thats pretty damn quick if you ask me. AND Thats daily usage environment not some benchmark.

Yeah Im trying to wait personally, I keep getting temped though biggrin.gif The thing that has me locked into amd right now is my love for the CHV, its a great motherboard, thats why i wanna give this thing an 8150. If I do go intel your right it would be another rog board, BUT with the z68 asus rog maximum iv gene-z Im in the rog line at only $180 that would be my pick. mATX is the downside but I dont need the extra pci-e slot.



Well benchmarks do indicate expected performance, but I do agree that satisfaction and real world use is different that which is the benchmark queen. My only concern is with sticking onboard with a lineup that may just continue to fall behind. We all expected more from BD that we got, and hopefully amd can catch up with piledriver. i dont think ivy will be leaps forward, its mostly internal gpu performance increases, slight IPC improvement, but piledriver needs to AT LEAST match the ipc of sandy bridge to be a success if you ask me. Im still sticking with amd at the moment, but I dont really have any loyalty. I can switch to intel and not miss a thing or stay with amd and still have a great pc. I do mostly gaming, but luckily not at the level of monitors/multi gpu where BD or PHii can be a limiting factor.

Its like a 600hp car vs a 700hp, they are both so much faster than your average 200-300hp car that either one is fun.

Same, I really don't have any loyalty.

But if this proves to be true.
Quote:
AMD has a rather strong and clear roadmap for the period of the following three years with the aim to increase performance-per-watt of its high-performance cores by approximately 10% - 15% every year. In practice, this transforms into 33% - 52% speed boost of Excavator micro-architecture compared to Bulldozer. Technologically, AMD wants to improve IPC (instructions per clock) performance and reduce power consumption at the same time, which transforms into higher clock-speeds.

If that is true I will definitely be sticking with AMD for awhile.

oh nice that was a recent article. Hope piledriver does come out 2012, I dont mind waiting 6 months. Whats kinda funny is that the rumor mill has been pretty quiet. This can mean two things, amd is getting their act together and gonna sucker punch the industry with a killer, or its not going to happen 2012 due to lack of leaked info when a release gets closer. I hope its that amd is gonna sucker punch us. That was my biggest problem, they overhyped BD, made it seem like it was gonna kill intel, and then it was just a small step forward from what they had. from my 1100t i felt the 8150 was more of a sidestep rather than upgrade.

So guess we will see what AMD has this year for us biggrin.gif

I think AMD wants to put their first release behind them and move ahead. But failing isn't always a bad thing now they know what do, gotta learn from your mistakes. That roadmap is subject to change without notice, at this time that is their release schedule. Hopefully AMD can restore some competition and bring some good chips to the market.

Yeah, well I was once told "second place always tried hardest" and that is a good thing. I left a company that had established success to a company that was growing, my foreman told me that when I was leaving my last day. I think he ment it in a bad way, but to me that is a good thing, second place is the one that is pushing and trying new things, Im hoping amd closes the gap. BD isnt a failure, it was just over hyped. If they were conservative with it there wouldnt be so much intel fanboys laughing and amd guys wouldnt be resentful or bummed out. I wouldnt mind having an 8120/50. Just not worth the upgrade other than for entertainment of overclocking a new cpu. Had one at launch week and was fun, now with the updates I would like another to compare results with my previous benchmarks.

This is the first time i seen this so i figured i would post it.

427

ALso i was looking at this article and it says that trinity and Piledriver (Vishera) will both be on FM2 socket i think. if i am reading it correctly...

http://www.pcgamer.com/2011/07/26/amds-10-core-piledriver-chips-revealed/

Then this one says it will be am3+ socket... does anyone know what they are talking about.

No your reading it wrong, Trinity will just have Piledriver cores. Vishera will be AM3+ most likely. Then the next release will probably not be AM3+, and those are mobile processors anyway. Also that wccftech roadmap is about 5months old the newest one is what I posted.
