Completely off topic but that statement got me thinking, and yes it hurt.wink.gif



True story: When FX first came out this kid who lived in a trailer park picked up one and replaced the Phenom with it and started overclocking. The motherboard was an MSI G43...........

When it exploded into flames the case fans blew the flames out of the case and the curtains caught on fire. This caused his house trailer to burn which caused the trees around it to burn which caused other trailers to burn. He ended up burning down half the trailer park!

So if you burn up your apartment yes we will like it and talk about it for years. biggrin.gif

You might want to warn your neighbors tho.

On topic: January? Cool! It will be a cheap Christmas although around here things tend to be at their lowest prices in late February-early March.

Also, a few months ago I heard a rumor that AMD was thinking about building a factory here in the USA. Is there any truth to that?

I hadn't heard anything about that. Were they trying to get into fabbing their own chips again?

The last I heard was years ago when they were going to put a fab in New York and people were upset about the subsidies because it was 'third world' work/jobs.

Besides the whole GloFo contract. I really don't know what they would potentially build outside of a personal fab facility again and they don't have the liquidity for that.

Look at CB results... how can quad core lose by 10%? They should rewrite it...

Cinebench's OpenGL test having better results on a dual core isn't surprising. It strikes me as a rather old and primitive test. Unlike the CPU test it also seems to have rather variable results from run to run. Plus, I don't think OpenGL is especially modern, in terms of multicore CPU leveraging, like Vulkan or Mantle.

Cinebench's usefulness seems to be restricted to the CPU tests not the OpenGL test.

ASUS QC has reportedly been slipping. I've read a bunch of complaints about their recent higher-end Intel boards. I'm not impressed by the design of the Sabertooth R3. 40mm fans? Where are those left-over anodized aluminum water/air hybrid coolers? ASUS said their saltwater testing showed the coating is perfectly fine and yet they switched to copper to placate buyers. Why didn't they just slap those onto the board instead of a cooler designed to use a tiny fan blowing air back into the case from the back of the machine? rolleyes.gif

As for Gigabyte, they seem to come up with good designs that fall short on VRM cooling (tiny sinks) and BIOS bugs.
post #656 of 2415
Well, as far as Asus' FM2+ entries are concerned, none of them were even actively cooled so I'm not really worried about that. Component selection was excellent on the A88x-Pro and Crossblade Ranger, and their UEFI was top-notch too.

Gigabyte's F2A88x-UP4 had arguably the best VRM components available, making it the ideal overclocking platform (if you could stomach the awful UEFI).
post #657 of 2415
I have all three boards and really like them. The UP4 bios is your typical, buggy, skeletal, barebones Gigabyte bios.

If we can get off the topic of underpowered Apus for a second. Check this article out

Now this is something AMD should be praised for
post #659 of 2415
Imagine all the revenue and the fact this technology has the potential to make AMD a household name (amongst server farms) upon the release of Zen

That was GloFo, the fab in New York is operational, and is the one building the Zen chips.
