I'm sick of AMD fans dismissing the importance of IPC and resorting to the argument that it makes up for it by having high clocks, what high clocks???? It clocks no better then Intels offerings.
Bulldozer also clocks higher then Thuban and yet is barely any faster and in quite a few cases is loses.
Look Frosty. You only have one eye. You're not seeing the other half.
You could have a chip that can do a hundred instructions per cycle, and clocked at 10MHz. According to you it would be a great chip.
NO. A chip that does a mere instruction per second but runs at 2GHz would absolutely destroy it.
So it's IPC AND clockspeed what matters. In the end, IPS is what matters. IPC is just a part of it.
Stop defending that point of yours, it is crippled, and only reflects half of the story at best.
