Practical Bulldozer Apps

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
BD wants you to use threads. That is where it's strength lies. Massive throughput!
The better your app's multithreadyness(c), the better it can flex its muscles!

I was wondering when anyone would catch on to this. It's not a gamers chip, that's for sure, and with 8 cores it was never going to be a home users chip, so what's left? Encoding, graphical design, etc. Stuff that's really CPU intensive and capable of taking full advantage of all those cores.

should do great on a heavily loaded desktop environment.
not buying 8 cores to run one app at a time here.
most of the time i have lots of background apps running.

real cores = no choking. wink.gifsmile.gifsmile.gif

This is a great chip for a good workstation ... that's why Cray did business with them smile.gif

As for gaming... i think people, at the present point, prefer benches to gaming smile.gif

If you are gaming you won't feel lack of power... but just by knowing the benchmarks you read all over the net ... it will make your frustration grow.

actually, most of those are real applications being tested by doing real work.

i think i just made up my mind? I use a i7 920 as a workstation platform & PII x4 as a gaming rig. i recently got a second gtx470 and my x58 didnt like it so i bought a sabertooth 990fx for bulldozer. after seeing a lot of benchies & googling around. ive found most of the apps coded for benchmark's are quite old & therefore dont really reflect the proccessor's true potential. the new instruction set of fma4 looks like it will help in the area's people forget about mostly 'software'? ive noticed VS 2010 supports FMA4 & XOP so time will help i think? and really if i have 60fps in a game how much more do you need unless you have 120hz monitor then its a multi gpu setup anyway. also if running 3x mons & multi gpu setup's will the bulldozer show its strength? single threaded benchies dont really sway me to be honest, because we now live in a multithreaded world. gamers are dissapointed in dozer but it isnt really a gaming chip its a workstation/enthusiast platform.

im buying bulldozer & am happy to give AMD my money. I will also give intel my money when ivy/haswell skt2011 comes because i aint no fanboy.

if your looking just to game then buy sandy or whatever floats your boat, nuff said
