I'm not perfect but I try my best, but honestly this whole BD thing over the last few months has been ridiculous. My .02
Hey, I just want to point out, I am just as mean and rude in real life.

BD just does better at higher res, you can see the results for themselves here.

BD wins in practically every hi-res benchmark.

"There are two areas where the FX-8150 excells though, those are gaming and overclocking. In the former we saw the processor give us improved framerates over the Intel model. In the latter the ability to exceed 5GHz with ease offers additional value for money. In fact AMD have indicated that they expect most users to exceed 4.8GHz on air cooling."
BD doesn't do better. The AMD platform happens to be slightly better at GPU bottlenecked games.

Low res gaming is an ACTUAL representation of true performance.

Better yet, you can go check some of the recent 1080p and BEYOND scores with CFX and SLI solutions. BD gets left behind as it should, with such low IPC. Worst than PH2 clock for clock. Hell worst than Phenom clock for clock. Luckily it clocks well. But its still no competition for modern day performance.

Point blank, if your a gamer, it's fail not to get a 2500k. Especially if your serious about your graphics, such as someone like balla. Anything more than 1 videocard is a waste of money and power consumption with an FX cpu.

Who cares how it's done as long as it's better?

As a gamer, I don't care how it's achieved as long as it's faster. I understand there are alot of low-res gamers and for them I think SB is the better choice as it owns at the low-res.

But I'm a gamer that wants to run at high-res, why would I want to get the lower scoring SB?

SB owns at the low res, BD is owning at hi-res.

You can tell me the SB is faster in theory but in reality, my mighty dozer is running hi-res games faster than i7 2600k for $60 cheaper.

Good enough for me.

I don't understand how a couple FPS within the margin of error is better, but whatever helps you sleep at night

A couple of FPS more is a couple of FPS faster. I can understand for low-res gamers that prefer the SB, it's an excellent chip where a couple of FPS more doesn't matter.

But, FPS is very important to hardcore gamers, the more FPS I can get, the faster it is.

At high-res, BD gets > FPS than i7 2600K.

At $60 cheaper; it is quite clearly the better buy for hi-res.

And on the flip side, if you are a low-res gamer, the i7-2600K is the much better buy, I'd get that instead of a BD if I gamed at low-res.

1050 is still high res for a lot of folks.







And i hope you don't play Metro. Almost unplayable on an FX

If your such a high res gamer, you probably game with more then one card correct??
explain to me why the fx cant keep up with sandy in this review when paired with more then one card at high resolutions mind you.

I completely understand that. For those people, the SB is an excellent chip and far greater than BD...spanks the hell out of it.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with that. I also own a 2500k and I love it. But I'm going to upgrade to the BD because I want the higher res.

For hardcore gamers like me who want the I guess "new" 1920/2500 hi-res, BD owns and is a great buy for $60 cheaper than i7 2600k.

I am currently using 2x6990 in my Sandy.

It's that Asus board used in the review. All of the BD benchmarks suck on the Asus. Until Asus fixes their bios, I am sure BD will continue to suck on their boards.

Check out the reviews on an ASRock Extreme4 motherboard and BD owns i7 2600k.
