For companies you're nothing more than a dollar sign. You need to understand this.
They don't care and they have never cared.

If they could sell Nehalem for 1000$ and Thuban for 800$, THEY WOULD, but they can't so they WON'T.

Maybe you should send AMD an email and ask. But I can assure you it isn't because they care about you.

Maybe you could tell him that unlocked cpu's are a selling point instead of being condescending to the guy

Intel is the one with true 8-cores.


Every core in an AMD module qualifies as a core if you go by the definition of what constitutes a core in a cpu.

Dude why be so harsh with the AMD enthusiast ?

AMD have a CPU line for overclockers and the man is one.

A clear target ($$$$) for the company yes, but AMD did care with overclockers, and dont ask a arm and leg for a K version. (For now)

The FX chips are dogs really difficult to kill. Can handle very high clocks. Tons of Fun !!

That´s the point, so difficult to you to understand and accept?

Actually YOU lost all credibility as soon as you typed that statement, mister.

probably because if they locked their current CPUs they'd have to price them all below $100?

simply put, vishera compared to Haswell, both at stock, is slower in performance.
yes you actually had to overclock vishera to match an i5 in most tasks aside from highly multi-threaded ones.

i mean, they even lose against an i3 that isn't even clocked to 4Ghz!


don't get me wrong though, AMD at stock are pretty decent, but not at their price.

People who build pc's plain and simple prefer unlocked cpu's for the most part. But they are less than a rounding error as far as cpu sales go. OEM's which is where the money is at because now we are talking of orders in the multiple millions only use locked cpu's.

OEMs barely make up AMD's sales for the past few years though, i hardly even see a prebuilt desktop with an AMD chip.

in any case, its as i've said, they'll still sell well, just that they'd have to price it lower.
