You no longer respect AMD for simply trying to be positive about a bad situation, yet you'll buy from Intel, a company that broke anti-trust laws in multiple countries to keep AMD from taking market share? Misplaced priorities...

Ok jokes aside. He's right to lose respect for AMD over the BD debacle, I know I have, what with all the hype about their big comeback CPU that was going to be a "bulldozer" to the competition, yet it cant even be a "bulldozer" to their own products that where aging poorly 2 years ago.

I'm more concerned about the people who haven't lost respect for AMD over this. I think they have far too much faith and there is an old saying about faith begining where reason ends.

ANYTHING is better than FarCry2.
Your opinion is clearly misguided and concluded without any factual evidence. Take a quick look at this review and you'll see how badly the FX 8150 performs with 3 GPUs at high resolutions.

http://www.tweaktown.com/articles/43...ad/index1.html

This review uses a highly overclocked 8150 and 3 6970s at high resolutions.

I patiently await your next excuse and hopefully you'll provide some proof instead of unfounded nonsense this time.

Don't start this evil Intel crap, AMD has destroyed their reputation as the innocent good guy with the launch of bulldozer. First of all AMD posted this video trying to trick people into thinking the i7 980x only gets 5.41 in cinebench 11.5 when the reality is that it scores a 9. What happened when everyone called them on their lie? They disabled comments and left the false advertising video up on youtube free to trick potential customers for two days now. Its still up right now, notice twice as many dislikes than likes.


Need more lies from AMD? See my sig and its links.

You're doing too much.

I really could care less about 3xCrossfire. I'm supposed to care about performance for a certain setup that 99% of us will never run? Where is a nice article using 1x$300 GPU @ 1080p at? I don't care about GPU bottlenecks since i and the vast majority of PC gamers don't run a multi-gpu setup anyways. Show me a $300-$500 GPU and all the CPUs. That's what my point was.

Oh and tone down the flaming and fanboyisms. No need to go on defense/offense. Breaking out the thesaurus and pontificating doesn't earn you any points.

Seems that you have some misguided priorities too. Launching overhyped product = breaking anti-trust laws in multiple countries?

LoL. No wonder that other thread got to 200 pages. People like you, stuck in hyperbole mode, flaming. Go play Fanboy somewhere else, I'm not buying.

Why would i lose respect for a company simply coming up short? Disappointed definitely but losing respect? That's reserved for law breaking and MAJOR management issues. Give me a story about how half of bulldozer's budget was blown on midget strippers and I'll agree with you. Until then, maybe you should consider that you guys are too emotionally invested in CPU companies.

.... I not fanboying anything, I posted facts with links to back them up. I'm just another disappointed enthusiast. Calling someone a fanboy won't make the things AMD did go away.

AMD is beyond pathetic. They only allow positive comments on that post.

I don't think mine was negative at all.

Quote:
Ever heard of a GPU bottleneck? Might want to explain that to your readers.

Anand gives a good explanation of this.

Civilization V

Civ V’s lateGameView benchmark presents us with two separate scores: average frame rate for the entire test as well as a no-render score that only looks at CPU performance.

While we’re GPU bound in the full render score, AMD’s platform appears to have a bit of an advantage here. We’ve seen this in the past where one platform will hold an advantage over another in a GPU bound scenario and it’s always tough to explain. Within each family however there is no advantage to a faster CPU, everything is just GPU bound.



Looking at the no render score, the CPU standings are pretty much as we’d expect. The FX-8150 is thankfully a bit faster than its predecessors, but it still falls behind Sandy Bridge.

These type of comments get approved though.

Congratulations on the 8-core release. People are too quick to jump to conclusions, don’t let ‘em get you down. For my part, I don’t pay attention to all the fancy benchmarks. What matters to me is price vs. performance. I can’t reasonably afford the competitions products, as they are way too “proud” of it. How do I measure a products worth, simple, I get it and run it, if it does what it is supposed to without incident then I am a happy camper. It, for me, has been that way for years with AMD products. Thanks for the hard work and for bringing affordability to my desktop.

Search for the meaning of 'fanboy', cuz youre looking more like one.

He was merely stating facts, that doesnt mean someone's a fanboy, but hopelessly trying to find excuses to justify a bulldozer chip eventhough its clear that it simply aint worth in any way sounds more like a fanboy to me :>.

There is no exaggeration. These are your own words.

I sent you a link with high resolution and three GPUs and you still haven't provided any information to back up your original claim.

Quote:

You mean "couldn't" care less. Saying "could" care less would imply you could care less about something and therefore you somewhat care about it.

I'm not a fanboi and I also don't need a thesaurus to argue my point in this situation. My main point is: I really dislike when a person spreads misinformation. When a person makes a claim, one should back it up as to validate the claim and inform the users who frequent this forum, not misguide them. I'm not trying to flame, but only help those who get information from these forums.
