Nividia had a similar situation with one of their previous GPU architectures. They used fewer, more complex cores to get the job done. But when it became apparent that the extra complexity wasn't paying off, they had the option of either making the already large GPU die even larger (to accommodate more cores), or clock the GPU higher.

I don't get that. Whenever somebody questions the legitimacy of AMD's claim of 8 core CPU's...they get murdered on these forums. But then, with each revision,there's always "oh but they added a new piece to the pie, NOW it's more of an 8 core..." well what about before, are you invalidating the claims that it wasn't REALLY an 8 core CPU before? See the issue with that? Maybe it's just me. Nothing I'm willing to debate now, just a thought I'd like to share.

I never said it was a true 8 core, was I late to the party?

No no no not you. I didn't know if maybe you or anybody else reading that any insight into that issue.

Back on topic I think its a great idea for AMD as long as they don't try to jump into the 2011 CPU price range, that would just be suicide.

People complaining about people posting memes should be against the tos. I swear some of you need to lighten up and stop being so damn uptight.

it's funny you mention that. I was at an exec meeting at Time Warner Cable, during the meeting, the VP of Systems got up to talk. To break the ice, he asked us to introduce ourselves and tell him what our favorite meme was....I mean like "bad luck brian, skeptic 3rd world kid, incredibly photogenic guy....etc.." The guy was hilarious and instantly grabbed all of our attention. smile.gif

No doubt, its called relating to your crowd, been around forever, and absolutely nothing wrong with it.

The guy I was referring to was doing it to intentionally be rude and disrespectful. He is a brilliant guy, but gets short with people way to often. Thats all I was meaning by it. We can debate and post memes all day long, as long as its respectful, and not being negative IMO. So when I see someone being rude, I don't report it I just be rude back. Thats all.

As per usual.

I've never seen a desktop chip that even met TDP at stock, not even with Turbo. Most 125-130W chips seem to consume 75-100W.

Because the 8150 was a horrible piece of crap. We're talking about the 8350 now.
