AMD FX - 1400 Zambezi??? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
I'm part of the anti-Zambezi group too lol, I'm just saying an underclocked Zambezi and a GT210 will use less power than any off the shelf Trinity CPU.

I don't know how Trinity responds to underclocking (I assume well) but the FX-6100 and FX-4100 sip power stock and while they respond terrible to overvolting the love to be undervolted.

If all you do is watch movies with your HTPC Trinity will probably be better in 99% of scenarios but some (like me) use our HTPC to do Handbrake conversions and CPU power is important. The FX-6100 and FX-8100 outperform the quad core FM2 chips in that scenario. I've owned a FX-6100 just to play with and underclocked it used the same power as my OCed X2.

Or, you know, you could just buy Intel. LOL

I wouldn't buy Zambezi new ... but if you already have it, I wouldn't make a huge fuss about it.

Agreed, if you want a Zambezi buy it used. Ebay doesn't have any used, same goes for the Bulldozers. Only internationals, like the UK, have some used ones. The prices are so close on Amazon you might as well buy a new one. Maybe someone here has one for sell.

APU is a CPU and GPU in one. AMD has a series with entry level radeons on the same die as the CPU. They're not bad. Waaaaaay better than Intel HD graphics.

HTPC is home theater PC.
