WARNING!!!! to all AMD users (windows 64x)

post #1 of 47
Thread Starter 
please pardon some of my spelling in advance here.
her is my system
a8n-e
venice core 3200 stock cooling
asus 6200
500w psu
2 hdd 40gig 80gig
windows x64 pro
1gig memory dual channel

this is a warning thread for all amd users DO NO USE windows x64bit edition it is a total pile of ****. i have been using for years since service pack one (home) i just recently got new hardware because my mobo burnt up so far heres my complaints take em or leave em this just my finding sofar

ive had this os for about 2weeks after obtaining it 6months ago and was waiting for an upgrade to install this

i will go over my thoughts with this os compared to xp home

i downloaded all the drivers, and updates sofar from microsoft and various hardware distributors such as nvidia

1graphics: home-9
i had an old agp nvidia ti310 and it was never glitchy never glitched ever, not even in the hardest games i could play rome total war with out a singel frame jump

1grapics: x64 pro-6
i play rome total war with my new 256 6200 nvidia and all i have is random frame glitches in any game i play even in some cases my card jumps on low requirement games. also with some games i get the blue screen of death

2Proformance: home-8.5
this was pretty fast for me my processor was starting to die on me and i was overclocking it and it work a little bit over all very fast to my liking with my 3200

2Proformance: x64 pro-6
very fast start up thats the only pro of it but it soon has difficulty running the cpu jumps to 100% at random times i have random freeze times with multipul programs i am constantly restarting.

3features: home-8
basic internet and most programs work fine with windows

3features: x64 pro-6.5
exactly teh same as home just not so many programs are made for x64 so its harder to work around that fact


i gave xp home 25.5/30 since its a very good and well built os system
the x64bit pro edition i give a 18.5/30 it is a very poorly built os and is yet to bloom into what it should be and what my expectations are of it (not very high)

i would not recommend the x64 os to anyon at all stick with home or pro save yourself 80$ and keep the good working os's and yes microsoft isnt paying much attention to this os either because of vista maybe in a few years if it isnt forgotten about by microsoft then it will be fixxed a little better

It used to not be worth it- now there is driver support for most things. I have used it in the past, and have not had any issue with it. And I did buy it (sorta, came free with my purchase of XP pro)

imho - 64bit windows won't kick-in and be viable until x86_64 cpus are the norm.

well just FYI buddy, uhh, Vista is due in the end of January...

and not to sound like a dick, but Firefox 2.0 has built in spell check.

Check it out at www.getfirefox.com and it transfers all ur crap from IE to FF, so all ur bookmarks, searches, passwords, will be in FF too.

g'day

well i can make some sense of it. really in my option. i reckon wait 4 vista. i have run the beta on my mates 64bit. and it works great. all the games that i have played work perfectly. TVtuner cards etc.. are had to get drivers 4. but that is always the case with a Beta. anyway i wait 4 vista x64 to come out fully. XP x64 was just a quick release. because XP was never suppost to b a x64 operating system. so it is bound to have heaps of bugs. anyway we will c how good the actual thing of vista is in the new year.

We shouldn't flame the guy for stating his opinion! I think he did a nice side by side comparison between home and x64.

I will say though, that I use x64 as my one and only OS, and I like it very much, so there must be doing decent about it
