[Sweclockers] - AMD prepares FX-9000 up to 5.0 GHz - Page 66

post #651 of 953
I would actually love to see higher core counts from both AMD and Intel. I've been doing some naive multithreading in some programming projects and in particular on a problem where I am co-evolving AI's, my FX-8350 executes a few hundred generations of evolution way faster than my roommates 2500k. Moar cores is absolutely awesome if you frequently work on slow runtime, embarrassingly parallel problems.

Most of the people in the 990FXA owners thread have little to no complaints about their UD7s... ask around over there instead of taking just one account into consideration.

And to be honest and fair... with how gigabyte has handled the rampant VRM overheating/warping issues on the 990FXA-UD3s (by basically giving anyone that mentions the problem the brush off with no support)...just me personally, but I'm never buying another one of their products again, but what you or anyone else buys is their choice to make, not mine.

Yeah, looking at my notes here from when I was going for the maximum possible clocks on that board: drops 0,11v~0,13v idle and up to 0,2v~0,26v on load(!). It is a [insert] board and what does GB do to defend their "top-of-the-line" AM3+ product? They give us an incomplete "tutorial" on how to voltmod it with a 100k ohm resistor and they tell us that the voltdrop is part of the AMD specifications for their processors.
YAAAY! /s

Don't you even go there man.

I can provide a LOT more documentation than this. This issue was on *all rev 1.0 GB boards of the 990FXA series*.
Actually if you want more about this issue, you have from page 6 on the 990FXA-series owners thread to page 60. (we're talking 100 posts per page.)

I couldn't agree more. I've completely optimized my OS for Piledriver, overclocked it as far as I possibly can, and I still have to sit around for hours waiting for textures to bake.

I absolutely hate it when people show up and they're like "lol who needs more coars games wunt uz dem neqyzz~~~ xD". Some of us use them for work and are pretty ticked off the dies keep getting smaller and we're not seeing more cores tacked on to CPUs. And some of us don't want to spend $500 on a single CPU.

Although, I brought this up in a different thread, this 220w CPU is actually pretty awesome, because it's going to make motherboard manufacturers have to support a 220w CPU. It means AMD, in the future, can (hopefully) release a big CPU (like two 4 modules chips in a single package) and let people overclock it and let those TDPs go sky high.

I get frothy in the loins thinking of 16 core AMD FX that I can overclock. When I think of that, the sap is definitely rising.

Give me the hexa-core Kaveri... I don't care if the max TDP has to be raised to 45W for laptops and 130W for desktops, it's still going to be a potent chip.

@4.8GHZ I was benching 220's in Wprime 1024

This should be very similar, unless it's actually a leak of Steamroller (which the 9000 numeration makes more sense)

Gigabyte should have offered a swap out for any rev 1.0 990FX owners that requested one. Not very happy with them as a brand due to failing to address the issue at all except to quickly retire the boards from retail in favor of their fixed revisions.

I guess this is what you get, when you don't research your upcoming mobo enough (I brought it back when the original BD was coming out). It had a good run and I actually like still being on the good old AWARD BIOS, but next gen?
No going gigabyte, that's for sure.
/rant

1) only the UD7 rev1.0 was without LLC
2) rev 1.1 Had LLC and performs wonderfully and Vdroop is not an issue at all
(here is the CPU and 12v voltage line from my rev 1.1

3) read the sign next to the UD7 "Duel UEFI BIOS" obviously a new version of the UD7
4) in the lower left corner it says REV 3.0
