[theinquirer] AMD's Piledriver chips will use a resonant clock mesh - Page 5

post #41 of 53
Guys you are way off topic.
Overclockdotnet needs to pull out its ban hammer and stop letting threads about "Clock mesh" Turn into a 4 page thread comparing bulldozer and the 2500k.

So according to your own source the FX-8150 at the very best ties the i7-2600K before overclocking....
When you overclock both CPUs the i7 smokes the FX in everything.
I don't know if I can be any clearer, maybe you're the one that needs to befriend some comprehension.
There really is no comparison.

Its actually .84% quicker. Its called maths. Also there is no comparison in this thread cause your while argument is off topic.

Actually the difference is .008%, (i.e. LESS than 1%). It's .84% faster which = effectively identical results.

Back on topic... Resonant Mesh Tech is good for ~10% reduction in power.

The difference is about .8%. There is a difference between saying .008% and .8%

Correct the percentage difference is less than 1%, i.e. .8%. I should not have typed .008% but instead .008. The improvement is .84%. The results are essentially identical - as stated.

...the thread topic however is about AMD using RESONANT MESH TECH in Piledriver CPUs... so let's get back on topic before the Mods need to delete a few hundred posts in this thread. wink.gif

I'd like to see any benchmarks showing the FX beating an i7 at video encoding.

You do realise video encoding is generally measured in FPS? As for their score...I have no idea what they did, but every other review site disagrees with that conclusion. Bulldozer is damn good at x264 HD encoding, as it heavily uses integer cores and takes advantage of the 256bit FPU easily. I was even considering getting one, as every review I've seen showing a difference in gaming between CPUs has had results way different to mine (eg. A HD7970 being slower than a GTX 470) and I only game and video encode overall.

It's been deleted, but there was a thread on OCN showing that they stay with each other. Bulldozers IPC is as good as Sandy's on x264 encoding. Video encoding is just something BD is extremely good at, not that Sandy Bridge owners can admit BD is better/as good as their chips at anything.

You wrote .008% which means 8 one thousandths of a percent. It's not the same thing as .8% which is 8 tenths of a percent. You need to leave off the % on the first number.


On Topic:

If resonant mesh is good for ~10% decrease in power consumption then that is a good thing. Especially if added to Piledriver which should be at least 10% performance wise better than current Bulldozer.

Any improvement to the architecture without any added overhead is a welcome addition.

Definitely, especially since Bulldozer is the type of core to benefit from faster core speeds. lower power consumption (And usually therefore, heat) is a very good thing,
post #50 of 53

People are arguing about Bulldozer vs whatever Intel CPU's in a Piledriver thread?

 

Come on guys, let Bulldozer go already. Worry about the future, not the past.
