What pricepoint does bulldozer need to be competitive? - Page 7

post #61 of 67
I hate intel just as much as the next guy, but BD is a flop and a half..........and thats its actual computing power also

BD would have to be free for me to consider downgrading.

The H61 is a motherboard, one that's $30 cheaper than what you have. For that price we can go to the i3-2120 which is even faster.

Instead of doing that, and contributing whatsoever, the only thing you've given us is your opinion regarding the superiority of a highly overclocked X4 vs. the stock i3-2120.

No supporting evidence.
No data.
No benchmarks.
All opinion.

What a complete and utter shame.

H61 is a chipset, but yeah, boards based on them are indeed inexpensive. Still, my AMD boards are no where near the cheapest that will run a 4GHz X4.

The i3-2120 would likely move up to parity in overall gaming performance with what you could get from a stock cooled Phenom II x4, but then we have a toss up, still not a clear cut victory for the i3.

In this situation I will admit that for a pure gaming build, the i3-2120 + cheapest board you can find that will run it, probably is the more viable option (due to performance parity at slightly lower operating costs). However, if anything else CPU intensive is to be done, I would still prefer the X4 setup.

You already have the benchmarks, why do you need me to repeat the same thing?

Beyond the fact the BD has to be overclocked just to match the performance of the i3, the i3 consumes much less power and generates much less excess heat. Plus the i3 offers a better upgrade path and does not require an expensive motherboard.

Even if you don't OC, the i3 is a much better choice than anything from AMD.
I've heard the same before like 3-4 times or more lol...from you, you need to copy and paste this, if you don't already
But anyways, was considering this chip but meh what's the point if i can't mess with it and OC it. Looking forward to a 2100k

a 2100k would be so awesome !!
i can see it being a good folding@home chip in half a year, cheap 8 core for folding sounds like the road to take

BD doesn't need a price drop, it needs Windows 8, applications compiled to take advantage of it and its successor Piledriver.
