Any one else making the switch to Intel - Page 9

Yeah I'm switching. AMD sucks balls and overpriced the crap out of the Faildozer.

I went from an Athlon X2 to a 2600K. I wish we could have gambled on the how good the Bulldozer would have been. I would be rich right now after gambling in favor of its demise.

For one. I am not at the point of upgrading just yet, and I would be a fool do get rid of my current rig because of poor reviews on a chip I am not using. I got what I have at a very good price.

When I do upgrade, the current batch of reviews for processors from both companies won't mean anything to me. I will be looking at reviews for what's been released then.



I do have to say, though, that the reviews have me confused. Some say BD is better than the 2600 at certain things, others say the 2600 is better at the very same things. Some reviews say BD barely improves on Phenom II, others say it's worse. Some say BD is fairly OK, others say it's complete crap. Just what the hell is going on on that front?

The only thing I can see everyone agreeing on is that the single core performance is lackluster, but the multicore performance ain't bad. Personally, as someone who multitasks heavily, more cores and multicore performance means more than single core performance, but as I said, I'll look at reviews when the time comes to upgrade. If Intel is better at doing what I need it to at the price I am willing to pay, I'll get one of them.

amd's plan is to release what they released now. this will make intel engineers fall asleep, cash in on their stock options or go for early retirement. once intel is at its weakest, amd will unleash the real bulldozer cores (via software update) and catch intel with a netburst-athlon64 left-right combo. intel stock price drops to negative values so amd can buy intel and gets money for saving humanity.

Ok, sign me up.. my comment on that AMD blog about the bulldozer is being moderated (they've approved posts since mine).. I guess they didn't like my comment about their marketing a liquid nitrogen clock speed as one the biggest selling point, I could care less, unless they want to sell me a dude and lifetime juice (for $250) to keep it clocked at that speed.

Going to ditch the AMD video card as well, stupid UVD drives me crazy (everytime you watch a video on youtube while you have a game open, it drops your clocks to 400mhz). At least it does on my 5770. How hard is it to have the driver acknowledge it was in performance mode and not to drop while the 3D mode is active?

Next build... Intel/Nvidia for sure. DIAF AMD!
