When Steamroller Rolls Our Way

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
If you check out my sig rig you can see my mobo, would it be logical to get a mobo with more VRM's when steamroller comes around? Depending on how it actually performs, I might get an 8 core Steamroller CPU. Yeah, I'm jumping the gun here but I wanted to ask this before I forgot and where better to ask then the enlightening OCN members? smile.gif

Unless you're going to overclock the living s#%! out of it, probably not. (Seriously, hold off until it actually comes out and we see real world performance benches.. for your sake!) redface.gif

I wasn't going to make any impulsive purchases in the near future! I was just wondering because Piledrive 8 cores are 125w, so it's safe to assume that Steamroller will be the same, correct? I can't OC my 6100 much pass 4GHz without the motherboard VRM's getting too warm.

I have the same question, but for the 970 extreme 3. Thread jacking? AWWWW YEAHHHHHHHH.

Most likely the new 8 core top of the line CPU will retain the 125w TPU...

AMD Bulldozer - "Zambezi"(1.0) FX 32nm processors was a flop because of its design, Piledriver - "Vishera"(2.0) FX 32nm processor fixed all flaws that Bulldozer 1.0 had and too bad that AMD rushed with Bulldozer, they could have released a Bulldozer that would be like Piledriver... They din't but if they did Intel would crap itself and start making new architecture and not always downscaling a Core 2 Duo(origin from Pentium 3) architecture with minor tweaks...

AMD Steamroller - "?"(3.0) FX 28nm processor specifications are unknown, except there are possible outcomes and options of how it could be:
- improved over Piledriver by 15% and have lower TDP (likely)
- improvement of 25-30% and have same TDP (possible)
- no improvements and vastly lower TDP (unlikely)

Explaining Likely:
beat Ivy and have the lower power consumption package and possibly compete greatly with Intel's Haswell...

Explaining Possible:
To compete with Intel's Haswell processor, if they choose to use maximum out of Steamroller then its possible to beat Haswell's because of its minor CPU improvements compared to Ivy Bridge.

Explaining Unlikely:
if they decide to be more appealing to worldwide users with higher prices of kilowatts/electricity by just scaling down Piledriver's architecture(Bulldozer 2.0)

Steamroller uses the same socket AM3+ and it will have some architectural improvements over Piledriver...

Inte's Haswell from current available data on the ethernet/internet it will have just 5% better than Ivy in CPU and it will be focused on its IGP that will have about 40 to 50% of improvements over Intel HD Graphics 4000. Power consumption will be higher if IGP is used.

Since Steamroller is 28nm there is vast amount of possible improvement even if they just scale down the architecture of Piledriver like what Intel does with its Core 2 Duo architecture(derived from Pentium 3 after Pentium 4 mega flop compared to AMD Bulldozer flop)

Linux users will use AMD's processors since it considerably performs better than Intel's processors on its derived Operating Systems and I plan to switch to Linux based Operating Systems since its less demanding and more power can be used for games and AMD will thrive on Linux.

I know AMD needs money to I hope that there won't be large gap between Piledriver and Steamroller processors, if has 30% better performance then I hope price compared to Piledriver will be only 15% higher and be more appealing to Intel crowd since they think more money means more power and quality... Wrong... There is a nice fine line between quality/power to price... AMD hit the sweet spot with Piledriver...
