ferrite is iron, so yeah...,

btw, the only pros that i can think about having this so many phases is better heat dissipation.

I highly doubt they're sorry about that either. rolleyes.gif Bulldozer was unlocked, and people still chose i3s over FX-4xxx and FX-6xxx processors.

Liking what I'm seeing. No not the phases, ok yeah the phases, but more to the point, I love the EPS placement. thumb.gif
post #55 of 162
LOL people saying this many phases is a waste. Yeah its a lot, but the more phases there are, the more divided the load is on the VRMs so less load so its evenly split across more rather then less, so then the power delivery area runs cooler all together. 32 is a lot though.

Well, between FX-4100 and the i3, the i3 will probably be better. Piledriver destroyed it, but if you're playing older games or just badly designed games, the i3's single threaded performance will make it superior. The FX-6300 is the current king of budget CPUs, though.

But you still really don't need more than 8 phases. It's going to keep it cooler, but a good 8 phase will already be fine.

I'm not disputing that. But the fact is Intel marketshare has gone up at the expense of AMD, that means people are choosing Intel over AMD at almost all levels. Which, in turn, means Intel has nothing to be "sorry" for for locking down non-K processors, as it certainly didn't dent their sales.

I'm sure it took down their sales a bit. I expect to see that AMD's share of budget PCs improves as more games become multithreaded.

By what? 1%? 2%? The average PC user doesn't overclock. Vast majority of sales are to OEMs, whose boards are locked down and can't overclock anyways.

And it doesn't matter if future games are multithreaded if the now has games that are single threaded. What might happen in the future has no relevance to what is happening now.

Games have been on a trend toward being able to utilize more threads, recently. Since people buy computers for long term, I'm sure people will take this trend into account.
