With the recent turn of AMD can I ask why some of you guys are sticking with AMD? - Page 2

post #11 of 88
i'll say it once again, i don't care if they release a processor that has 10 times less performance than an intel CPU i will only buy the AMD one, "lesser of the 2 evils" is which some one posted below me when i first said this. uh yeah, i'm still gonna stay with AMD, but i'm not buying the FX series until i see something that makes it look good.

I just have a thing against companies that i don't like to be honest, not really much of a fanboy type complex going on here. Rambus = they had shady dealings perverting the course of justice = i'm not buying AMD's 7970 or 7950 graphics cards because they have "rambus" memory in them. as you can see i don't classify myself as a fanboy but, yeah im waiting for AMD to royally screw its customers or another company then i will never have a computer again, it's that simple.

oh and contrary to my avatar, i don't hate nVidia i'll buy their GPU's sure, but it's just the intel/nvidia pairing i actually quite like nVidia still have a 9500 GT or something.

Wouldn't surprise me, the Crosshair IV board had its share of problems too. I'm not so sure why the ROG boards are so popular, there are the crosshair board issues, my issues(horrendous RMA service, they tried to unbend pins by hand and are now ignoring my emails, been 9 months since the board broke), and I know a guy with a Rampage 3 with dead RAM slots.

Im still an AMD fan, for one reason: not forcing me to upgrade motherboards all the time! Bulldozer Gen2 and their forward thinking architecture of merging GPU + CPU is what I like... Intel just focuses on fastest IPC, smallest process tech, etc. Lastly, OCin on AMD is much more fun...

Can't wait for komodo to drop in my Am3+ board.

8150 gets higher performance then 2600 in some games. in others its right behind..

an 8 core thats cheaper then the 2600 and performs similarly?
whats there to not stick to..it just got released and its priced lower then the 2600...

performance either beats the 2600 or matches it...

who cares about crysis..not everyone plays games on their pcs
