Aren't all you AMD users underwhelmed that at best, the BD chip only slightly outperforms an intel chip that has been out for a while? I miss the days of GOOD competition where each manufacturer trumps the next on it's new release. We need more competition for our end user's benefit.
i got engineering education. i know that new stuff, whatever it may be, comes out under its prime. except some construction projects that need to be picture perfect at the start.
for any kind of systems (and with systems i am lumping in anything ranging from factories to aircraft to other stuff) there may be teething problems. and in fact in most projects these are expected. the case is even heavier in regard to stuff with information technology.
for pc gaming though, actually i am underwhelmed by everything. i had had come to the conclusion that cpu power is not so much a factor in games anymore, since we are much more gpu bound. in most games cpu remains underutilized. and the need for making games also work on consoles does not help. it ******* pc gaming.
back in 90s, when you made an overclock or upgraded your cpu, it made visible difference. now it only increases imperceptible fps count.
