I don't need to buy a new CPU. Besides performance and cost (I think Intel only wins in performance), there are features, backwards compatibility.

If there are 2 people selling the same shoes that you want, and the one that has them cheaper stole them, whom would you buy them from?

For $135 you could have bought a PHII X4 BE that performs better.
Did anyone notice the HH review that used a Asrock board? Either the review is biased,or the Asus CHV boards have some problems.

I've used AMD for the past 10 years. I don't love AMD, I just admire innovation and hate blue mob tactics. There was a time where Asus AMD boards had to be sold in white packages because otherwise Intel would sue or not sell chipsets to Asus. Intel advertised its processors (P2, P3 and IIRC P4 too) as "internet accelerators".

With AMD I could finally buy a computer that performed well in games. Then I had great moments, like overclocking a tbred B more than 800MHz thanks to the ability of a wonderful nForce 2 motherboard that unlocked multipliers. With the nForce series desktop pcs got a modern interconnection architecture (HT and dual channel DDR), and great onboard sound.

Then AMD released the first x86 64bit processor. Intel did not bet on extending x86 to 64 bits, that was done by AMD alone. That was against Itanic.

Now who was the first company to release a real dual core desktop cpu? with virtualisation support? And the first real quad core? And with integrated memory controller.

Why I stick with AMD? I don't know if my next CPU will be AMD, but I'm not giving Intel my money.

PS: I have to do this.


PS2: For those of us who remember THG for its biased reviews... Tom's Hardware Bribe.
+1 to this in my case.
I do have one of the white box Asus boards here (A7N8X Deluxe 2.0), bought it new a few years ago.
No, I don't see the point in shelling out a ton of $$ on a chip when a cheaper one will do what I need it to. As often as folks upgrade hardware anyway, that will equal even more $$'s spent just to stay "Current" with their hardware and I've always had good luck with AMD anyway. With what I save on a CPU I can buy a better GPU, PSU, MB or anything else of a higher model vs what could be bought within a given budget.
Besides I don't need to run the machine OC'ed all the time anyway, stock or even below serves my purpose just fine - Maybe not for your wants/needs but it's fine for what I require.

That is what I am curious about. I want to see more reviews on boards other then than Asus. The HH review BD is very comparable to the 2600k so what gives?

if i had to choose between a processor and food (not food to keep you alive, just nice tasty things) i'll choose $250 in food to the processor, lol i'm probably boring the crap out of you now, you can see how this conversation has gone downhill. lmao.
Yes we went off on a tangent there. I was only making fun of you because like others have said Arizona is a land-locked state. Being from the UK you have no real purpose in knowing that, so I take that back.

$250 dollars in food? Hopefully not all for yourself fatty!

The original article has more details.
A link to that article would be nice then. Without units, we don't know what those numbers mean.

And it's not clear. Lower numbers are better, except when they aren't? c'mon.

Any of the sites that says BD is comparable to SB is yanking your chain with terrible gaming benchmarks.

I buy AMD because Intel needs competition. If AMD goes bankrupt, then innovation will stagnate in the extreme.

AMD also doesn't make horrible products. At stock speeds they offer a better value, that savings can be used towards a better GPU which is more of a bottleneck than the CPU.

The only reason I ever build an intel/nvidia machine for someone is when they want the best performing computer their money can buy.

Most would rather spend $800 or so and get a machine that performs 80% as well as $3000 gaming rig.

I am one of those people.

I'm getting BD cause of my name...I can't buy an intel ...don't get me wrong intel wins on the performance front but I look at it from all angles in gaming BD does not look that far behind and for that price i'm not going to complain.
