Your first argument is incorrect. I love how benchmarking PCs is now useless also.

Granted, there are some where the Bull Dozer wins -



But, for the price ($245) - It should ALWAYS beat the 2500k - Not once in a while...

Tack on the Power Consumption, Random Blue Screes Of Death and All The Delays...

I really don't know why anyone looking at a new build, would consider a Bull Dozer. There is no reason what so ever to buy one.

So you're saying GTA IV isn't cpu limited?

Stop cherry picking, Steak House; I just posted two encoding benchmarks (which is what Tout actually does) where the FX-8150 beats an i5-2500k.

As I said, it wins on OCCASION.

You went back and edited your post to say that 10 minutes after I posted.

<<< That should be on all the Bull Dozer Metal Tins.

Drop the delusions of grandeur, Steak; no one here, and I mean no one gives one iota whether or not you approve of AMD's latest architecture. If you don't like it, move on.

Zambezi certainly isn't a CPU pancea; nor is it without merit.

FYI - The purpose of Overclock.net is discussions like this - If you can't handle the truth - That's your problem - not mine.

Judging by your last 100 posts on this forum, it's painfully obvious what your intentions are.

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.
>Whines about OCN being about gaming, synthetic benchmarks, whining and trolling.

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.
>Compares stock power consumptions after saying power consumption doesn't matter and that the website should be about overclocking
>Tries to compare 8150 performance to 2500k, but then compares power consumption to X6 instead of the 2500k.

lol, I don't care about performance per watt, I am not running a laptop here. I run my system full bore 24/7. Yes, it shows the inefficiencies that BD has but for us enthusiasts, performance per watt means next to nothing.
>Runs overclocked system 24/7 for encoding even though BD uses double the power of SB
>Can't pony up $40 more for a 2600k, even though the power savings would make it back in a month or two

Hey buddy, I found a new avatar for you!
