So SB has a high-res bottleneck but BD doesn't?

If I get higher FPS with BD than i7, it doesn't bother me that SB has a GPU bottleneck and AMD doesn't. I'll go with the one that is faster.

The hardware heaven review was using a 6950, wich is slower than the 580.

Kinda...

Some games have greater cpu dependency than others at the same fps, but in general more fps = more cpu load.

When are you going to actually buy the chip? Or are you?

I have an open mind.

I don't know if I'm going to upgrade to the BD or an i7 yet but BD looks impressive in the non-Asus reviews (at high-res). I absolutely must play in high-res (personal preference) so the low-res benchies don't interest me much.

Like I said, for low-res, I wouldn't hesitate to get the SB. This isn't about Intel vs AMD, it's about which one will give me faster high-res gaming.

I'm actually waiting on Dual GPU board benches before I buy.

Everybody knows the Asus reviews showed BD sucking ***.

More tests on different boards would also be nice. It seems the Asus board used in the reviews have a problem and so every review came out the same on that same board.

However, with these other boards, things look very different and BD looks very optimized in high-res gaming.

BD is obviously not for everybody, only high-res gamers like me might be interested. SB is obviously better in everything else other than high-res gaming.

Did you honestly expect a brand new architecture to be released without this kind of thing happening? Seems to happen every time someone introduces something brand new.

The Pentium 4 was basically on the same boat vs AMD that AMD is in now vs Intel with Bulldozer, yet Intel has stuck with that architecture and managed to pull way ahead with it. It isn't panic time, its growing pains.

Now, the way they handled the release and the flat out lying about performance are another matter.

Good to know some guys can suck at BF3 as much as I do. Not an insult, because you are obviously a good player and your K/D ratio was about the same as mine is usually.

if there's really not hope for the crosshair V ill just have to rma it for a giga ud7 instead ... better hope asus fixes its stuff up ...


maybe a performance fix will be available soon? biggrin.gif

lol, I'm no pro that's for sure... I try to go for objectives rather than K/D ratios smile.gif

On a more related note, how do they get 85 FPS on "Max Quality" with a single 6950 in The Witcher 2?

I get around 60 average, with mins in the 40's....

Not sure why you want to give up on the CVF? The Gigabyte board is having similar alleged "issues" (and possibly BIOS revs have been pulled from their website as a result). From what I have read, the ASUS issue is based on an OCN member stating his "inside connections are scrambling," but then no more info was given. And then a discussion ensued in this thread in which a bunch of hotly-debated OPINIONS based on widely-ranging reviews have been thrown around.

If we are to believe the opinions and act based upon them, then the Gigabyte and ASUS boards (specifically the BIOSes) are hindering FX performance, and the ASRock & MSI boards/BIOSes are enhancing its performance.

Personally, as a CVF and Thuban owner, I am going to wait for the reactions to die down and the evidence to come in.

For instance the CHV has 8x 8x xfire.. While my ASRock fatal1ty is one of the only 990 boards I saw that had 16x 16x ANOTHER reason I went for the fatal1ty instead of the MSI board.
Just because the Asus CHV is a ROG board people assume it's the best,but since seeing that Fatal1ty 990 board has X16+X16(even checked Newegg) it is the best AM3+ board so far,1/3 of the ASrock boards don't have reviews saying it arrives DOA or has irreparable issues either,it is also cheaper than the Asus CHV. If anyone still wants a an Asus,I'd recommend the Sabertooth TUF 990FX.
The Zambezi architecture is still new,hopefully the engineers can fix some problems by the next revision.

The Asus CHV has dual x16 slots:

3 (dual x16 or x16, x8, x8)
1 (x4 mode)

That's tri fire/sli at x16x8x8

Edit: or SLI/CF at x16x16


It's amazing how quickly misinformation can spread around here.
