[H] AMD FX-8150 Multi-GPU Gameplay Performance Review - Page 20

post #191 of 229
Let's assume for a second that BD really was locked down by 50%. If a bios fix was needed or a new OS was needed to unlock it, shouldn't AMD fans be even more up in arms that AMD was holding back innovation rather than proclaim Intel as the devil?

so true,all these so called fixes,yet AMD have been silent about it.i would think if there was a fix AMD would be saying something.maybe microsoft is going to build a brand new AMD OS called windows 8150 amd edition?
it solves all the FX problems by increasing FX's performance by 8% and when run with an intel cpu,performance of intel cpu go down by 40%.that way the FX will look better by 48%,kind of like what all the "BD is great on linux" guys are saying.it might be but how many will use linux?so if microsoft makes win 8150 AMD edition and you put those users with the linux users maybe BD will rock

Unfortunatly, I don't have fear 3, nor do I wish to spend 50 dollars on it, next to batman and skyrim releases.

But I'm open to trying other games. I have a genuine curiosity about the BDs performance, and NO need to defend it blindly.

If, in the end, it's bad enough to hurt my gaming experience, I'll just buy sb-e and be happy, since I personally have no desire to own sb nor ivy (nothing against it, I'm just a sucker for intel's extreme brand).

edit: as for 1080p, as I said, all I'm doing is giving you MY bd experience. I'm in NO way defending this processor in every possible confoguration. I just think it's cool to have an user's point of view, on a constant basis.

Pax,
Alex

Anyway, I'll keep updating on rage performance, since this is the game I'm playing right now. Hell, maybe I'll make a personal performance thread, unbiased, about my experience with BD.

I haven't owned or built an Intel desktop in 11 years, I've built computers for friends and put AMD in all of them over the years (Athlon, Phenom..) but it's looking like my next upgrade will be to Sandy or Ivy Bridge.

Sorry, AMD.

You might as well wait a little longer and go straight to Ivy Bridge.

I don't understand fanboyism. I buy products based on price/performance. People who take anti-AMD comments personal. Lol.

Well if I have money around it's release time , Ivy-Bridge here I come !

Yep, you're completely right. This test is pure BS, especially when it comes from a site known to be AMD biased. Did you know they actually delayed their review before it came online?

I'm sure their original was much worse, they retested things to not make it look as bad.

There's no magical update or BIOS, AMD hasn't said a word about it. Your best bet is to wait for Piledriver, that's as magical as it's going to get.

Both CPUs are overclocked as high as stably possible, the AMD FX-8150 is running at 4.6GHz and the Intel i5 2500K is running at 4.8GHz. We have found these to be "easy" overclocks to attain on these processors using moderate water cooler solutions.
This was covered on the FIRST page of the review:
http://hardocp.com/article/2011/11/0...ormance_review

--------------

I think it's time that people quit making excuses for Bulldozer, blaming the review sites, saying the original leaks were "rumors" or "fake", waiting for a BIOS to fix things, Windows 8 will fix the proper thread scheduling, blaming Glofo for poor yields ( eventhough earlier in the year they claimed yields were great ). Instead, you need to face the source of the issues...

AMD has done a great job at shifting the blame onto everything they can possibly imagine.

Bulldozer didn't live up to the hype AMD made it out to be. Deal with it.

Why do you guys think JF-AMD stopped posting at OCN? Is it because people sent him PM's expressing their disappointment?

Or is it because we called him out on the BS he's been telling us all year, and is now too proud to face us, and really has nothing to say?
