[AtomicPC] AMD's new chip: what a load of Bulldozer - Page 6  

post #51 of 109
After all this.. After all these benchmarks.. People forget why we are here. OVERCLOCKING. And did anyone miss one crucial fact? The bulldozer has the highest overclocking WORLD RECORD over any cpu.. I think i made my point

Can't tell if I'm being trolled.

If I was, congrats, nicely done.

Still anandtech confirmed that a 5.0ghz bulldozer for single threaded is no where close to i7-2600k@3.4ghz single threaded

Funny thing is, before BD launched, most of the 'Intel Brigade' on this forum were posting that it won't even come close to performing as well as an i5 2500K. That was the whole debate. AMD had too much ground to make up and they can't do it with their team. They also said it wasn't truly 8 cores based on the design.

BD launched and actually performs in the same range as a i5 2500K but is being currently price gouged by vendors since there is so little stock.... now these same people are claiming it's a fail because it doesn't beat an i7 2600K, ignoring that BD actually made up a ton of ground on Intel in the performance department.

Except in single threaded performance where it has taken a step backwards. Perhaps being fixed by optimizations, perhaps not. All of this performance with a 4 core basically since all along the Intel guys have said it's not 8 cores. In reality it's more like 4 full cores + 4 more slightly gimped cores.

The BD FX 8150 is supposed to be $245, not $280 like Newegg is selling them. Heck TigerDirect has had them listed at $260 all along but they are out of staock on both sites. The FX 8120 is basically the same chip and performs as such (especially overclocked) and is only $220 on Newegg. This kinda kills the same price argument, if you ask me.

I don't know where you guys are getting this data on power consumption but all the reviews I've read have it actually using a little more than a 6 core Phenom. Very little.

I find it preposterous that people here on Overclock.Net actually whine about power consumption at all! Are you kidding me? Get off this forum now! You buy 2 or more GPUs for your system and run them full bore 24/7. You water cool, overclock your CPU's to the max, ramp up your north bridge voltage, ramp up GPU voltage, RAM voltage, etc, etc..... and yet you cry about power consumption on the new AMD CPU!!!

I am a fan of AMD, I like to support the smaller company. As soon as FX CPUs are in stock on a daily basis and the price drops down to what AMD suggested them at, I will buy one. Since I buy multi core CPUs for multi tasking and heavily threaded applications. Not because I game. I do game, but it is not what I do most of the time. If all I did was game then I would have kept my Phenom II 955 and been happy as punch. However, since I encode lots of video and like to use my computer at the same time without massive hits to performance, I upgraded to the 1090T and it helped but I think the FX series will do even better.

This website is no longer all about overclocking, even though that's the actual title of the forum... it's actually way down the list now behind...

Gaming.net
SyntheticBenchmarks.net
Whining.net
Gloating.net
StartingFlameWars.net
Trolling.net

These have become the new forum titles. Some have been in place for years but others seem to have come to the forefront much more recently.

*Edit* darn a double post, I figured someone would have posted something before I did, sorry 'bout that. Anyway, feel free to continue quibbling over the topic at hand, I am going to rebuild my PC now since my new motherboard arrived... Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3... wish my camera still worked, lol.

You should post the other link instead, the one where the FX 8150 basically won 90% of the benchmarks against a i5 2500K. I saw it the other day in one of your posts.

You're right:


post #59 of 109
@tout in regards to the single threaded optimization comment you made,
this article - http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/news/...ng-debut.ars/1

paints a picture that AMD lowered the IPC on purpose because they wanted processing tasks to be split between the cpu/gpu. so there are no optimizations that can be made to increase the IPC with this architecture, they instead have to force devs to make software that can utilize gpu processing.
