It seems nearly everyone is using Intel CPUs in the Cat 3 spot for TC, and with Thubans being EOL, or close to EOL, I'd like to add FX series CPUs into the mix.
Everything I have seen for PPD (This thread , and google search results) indicate the PPD should be on par with the newer quad core Intels. The only one that may be better would be the 8350 in Linux, which I haven't seen numbers for, but in Windows it gets around 18-25k PPD.
I am thinking about adding them to Cat 3 for February, maybe we can fill some spots, and spark up a little AMD vs Intel competition back into Cat 3.
What are your guys' thoughts on this?
