AMD Dual-Core Death... - Page 2  

post #11 of 144
how are they pointless? it's two AMD's on one chip, jesus, lol.

Some people bought them back when they were top-of-the-line and still have them or picked them off someone who needed 16k in 3dmark06, lol

TO BUY they are pointless. If you want Dual-Core, go Intel.

I see where you are coming from, but you need to keep afew things in consideration, for example, in order for the intel dual core to be better then the AMD dual core, you have to be comparing Core 2, to A64. What about the user that has a perfectly good 939 rig and does not want to invest alot of money on new RAM/Mobo/Proc. Dont get me wrong, if I were building a completely new computer I would go core 2, however, not everyone can afford that luxury. For people who just want to upgrade to dual core, and only have DDR, then AMD Dual Core is the obvious choice.

Lastly, I never had ANY performance problems on my Opteron 165 rig, I would imagine the gaming problems you saw were from a driver/hardware conflict. Probably had something to do with the lack of the Dual Core AMD hotfix.

What if you cannot afford a C2D system? i would love one, but personally i like AMD overclocking better.

Do not forget about the AMD patch for dual core processors...that could be the reason the pentium d ran better vs the x2 in gaming.

seriously, that is the reason why I sold my 4400 for like $250 and got a e6300 for like $180, buying X2 is not worth your money when you can buy an e6300 as good as any X2

that's what i'm talking about lol

buying a new computer a X2 would be a waste of money BUT if you went C2D and got some chepo value ram it would cost less and maybe preform better.
