That would be ridiculously fun to meet up with other users and have a legitimate organized day of extreme benching.

Problem as usual is funds though, how would we bin through and be selective with the CPUs and have extras on hand.. When I lose CPUs usually it's because the VRM turns into popcorn so motherboards too.. I learned that when I decided to have fun with my oversize collection of 478/775 boards.. Of course if donated hardware for suicide runs was on the table, sign me up!!!! biggrin.gif..

4350 will be going under water though, I wasn't really planning on dry ice runs but that could be fun.

Exactly !

Thanks for the Political View.

So I got an 8350 and its performance has been good and as others have pointed out, the software is coming to it so that it is performing better without actually needing to get better. I was also recently surprised to find that its single thread performance isn't as bad as some insist it is, and is well into intel territory.

It has also proved to be a brute that can take a licking and keep on ticking. I kinda like its big friendly performance.

Same reason I've continued to buy Blackberry phones - to support local business, but also to promote competition. Although AMD owns ATi now, ATi Headquarters was about a half hour away in Markham, and thankfully they've kept the doors open there. I've owned a few nVidia GPU's over the years when AMD/ATi were doing well, just to change things up.

On the CPU front, however, I will not be going back to Intel for the foreseeable future. They are willingly stagnating the market with their business practices (which to be honest, AMD is also guilty of), locked processors, slow IPC improvements, and resistance to sell higher-core chips for less, even though the yields are better then they were years ago. An unlocked quad-core should not cost any more than $200, yet we've somehow managed to revert to 2007 prices. AMD needs to survive, and I'll do what I can to support them, even if it means side-stepping or even downgrading.

It's a sad state of affairs.

In my interest, an overclocked i5 should cost 170$, which cost the same as a Core 2 Duo E8400 in 2007-2008(still own it, 3.8GHZ).

so by your logic choosing not to support one side makes you a fanboy of the other.

I agree, fanboys like him are getting out of control.

Because I got an PII X4 955 and another 2x2GB of DDR2 for cheap a bit over an year back. There's nothing out there that won't run well enough on it at 3,5GHz. The cheapest step up would be a 2500k+board+RAM which would easily be in the 250€ range, not worth it for a 30-40% more performance. The difference would be even smaller running a 6950. It's ridiculous for a system that's something like six or seven years old and has had ~150€ worth of upgrades.

Really glad to see this thread up. I am not really a fan of either camp over the other. My next CPU/MOBO combo will be AMD for sure. Me and my son built BMO (Adventure Time anybody?) out of spare parts, and since we actually see a fair amount of use out of the little guy (NES emulator and Netflix box) we figured we would upgrade him to something a little beefier than the 6400k that is in there now, so he can play minecraft and lego lord of the rings. The case we built doesnt really have room/support for a dedicated GPU, so an APU is a no brainer for it. I was actually just passing through the AMD section to try and get a feel for which one may work best for us...I was thinking along the lines of a 7870k? Really only have room for a MATX at most (what is in there now) but would like to get into a decent MITX.

I researched a little and I found the following:
2500 Is equal in price to an 8350.
2500K Is hard to get.
2600K Is equal in price to a 3570K.
3570K Is almost twice the price of an 8320.
3770/4770K's Are twice the price of an 8350.

second hand CHV and Saberkitty cost 100 USD.
Used Intel socket boards in general are 1.5-2x the price of a CHV unless you buy bottom of the barrel, good luck with that.

Many people here have Athlon X2's or, if they can afford it, an 860K.
