The 81xx Bulldozers are kind of buzz kills because of the ridiculous heat crushing all my overclocking dreams. The 4100 runs really cool so it's been much smoother, looks like the 6100 isn't too shabby either. The more I've played with my 8150 the more I'm questioning the usefulness of the extra cores. So much extra heat for not much gain unless you're into benchmarking.
I'M WITH YOU THERE FRIEND, Im not an AMD Fan-boy nor Intel Fan-boy I use both platforms, and I use both GPU's ATI/and/Nvidia.If you have any good to report to me regarding the FX6100 Black Ed. I would love to hear because in the UK I can buy cheap.. for a Nice cheap Rig, Im very much into the AMD A-Series A8 3870K Black Edition ATM.
such good value just need the correct motherboard to go along with it. its great you dont even need a GPU because of the highly overclockable OC'd 950Mhz iGPU.
MY Present system is an Intel 2500K but I like a change now and then and Lets face it, there is only so much power one needs these days because of things like cheap SSDs.That will make any system blazing fast.
If anyone has any ideas on the new FX6100 I would love to hear.
Take care folks..PM me if you so wish..
. checkout my present rig too.
PS. Im buying a new 240GB SSD latter this week, when I get paid. together with an FX6100 (dirt cheap).. because of the negative press in the UK Retail prices are falling.
