The overclocked power draw was insane. Imagine the power bills with that and quad sli ;3

Good for you man... especially considering that you already have the AM3+ mobo. Don't see why you bought it before the CPU release through...

This statement confuses me, at first I thought the "better performance with a bios update" was a joke, but then people were being genuine. Since when would a bios update for instance increase cpu performance? Is that something that happens with AMD Chips?

And also just noticed people asking about folding numbers. Well even if the BD chip somehow mananged to be a good little folder, nobody would actually do it as others have mentioned, the MASSIVE power draw!

It would end up costing you that much to run folding on the bulldozer chips, that in the end you would be all out of money from the electric bill and would resort to throwing coal, books, and anything thats flammable to keep the fire that used to be your pc going!

The only thing I'm shocked about is the power consumption. I was expecting Bulldozer to have poor performance numbers, but not that much power consumption.

I guess you do not understand gaming. What matters is high resolution, meaning at least 1920x1200. You have again thrown out a long list of game benches that are @ low resolution and both machines score well above the 60 fps that is required for games. The game reviews that make sense show great performance. There are bad reviews that have no game benches, and most of those that do have some slant them by using old games and or oddball low resolution settings, and then say "the 2600 can run this at 2 gazillion fps, but the FX can only manage 1.8 gazillion fps", when the fact is that running new games @ 30-60 fps @ high resolution is the only thing that matters.

When benches are made with modern games at high resolutions the FX 8150 kicks butt, there is no way around it. Eventually you will be forced to accept this fact.

Dude, no hope for you. You might as well stick with your Phenom 2, or anyone with a core2 series. Because FX isn't an improvement over them in gaming. Actually worst.

Any kind of high res gaming will always have some leniancy and differences in test. You just listed a prime example. Different system all together, same game @ same settings will get slight different frames at any given time.

It was no surprise to me that Bulldozer wasn't top of the line, Intel has a much larger budget for R&D than AMD does. It wouldn't make sense for AMD to try to compete for the top, but rather just grab marketshare from lower end Intel processors.

However, neither is the case it seems, and for once in quite some time I've made the switch to Intel. All about the bottom line and performance/$!

I love it when people link reviews that are GPU limited on both ends.
post #50 of 130
Well, lowering the resolution is an effective way to gauge pure CPU performance. The B3 benchmark doesn't surprise me, since bad company 2 was 8 thread, no? So I expect B3 will be really well threaded too.

What surprises me is the shogun 2 benchmark. I know for a fact that game was 2 threads only, last time I played it. If I lower the resolution to 800x600, I still get 40fps minimums when looking at those large crowds of soldiers, and it's a cpu bottleneck, thrashing 1 core and using 50% of the other, with GPU usage around 50%.
