the world aint fair, sadly, as money is more important than fair-play.

Just stop the teasing, there is no perfect product.

I think that Intel is pacing itself well. They have the ability to make these chips(Penryn for example), but they are releasing them in a well structured manner as it looks to me. I think that they are giving AMD PLENTY of time to release their product, or rehash to at least make it somewhat competitive.

I wasn't going to reply to the thread at all, but soon as I saw that, I thought I should do some praising.

<--- Look over there, what is that you say. It's an AMD Logo. Yes I would rather have an AMD processor in my PC. But as you also see below, I have a C2D in my system...because atm, it is THE BEST. I love how every time information like this is released, fan boys just explode thinking they were 'right' all along...

There is no perfect chip. However, there is a more powerful chip. You can pull out all the charts you want, but Intel is blowing AMD out of the water at this time.

so, your overclocking your C2D, and you hit 60C, normally you would restart because of the thermal interrupt, but if this bug gets exploited and written into your OS code, this could potentially end up "microwaving" your CPU, resulting in, well, a sticky mess of gunk inside a pretty looking lump of metal/silicone.

This is just a theorem, based upon what i know. and theres always a noob busting a core with too much voltage
i dont know about you guys, but i would say this is pretty damn serious.
and im no fanboy for either team. my rig is not yet even started.

cant say i have, but i have done a Intel socket 370 (celly) w/o one.
what i meant is, under the metal (copper + nickel) of the IHS there will be silicone underneath. and that will likely eat itself at 70+C.

Actually, the "melting point" of aXPs is around 125c.

And another side note: The melting point of silicon is very high, well beyond the melting point of the conductors in the CPU. The CPU will long be dead before the silicon melts. I'm rather sure your CPU is not getting up to 1414 °C.

ah, i was referring to the C2D, and i meant, like as in a throttling temp (instant damage) type thing.
like, no names mentioned here, the guy who put 1.7 volts into a QX6700 at 2.6ghz
no disrespect to yourself.

Want proof?

Haven't you seen that EVERY Core 2 Duo processor wipes the floor with anything amd has. That right there alone is a sign of no such thing even exist.

Have had my C2D E6600 for 11 months now and absolutely no issues of any kind. There are no reliability issues, just pure kickingass performance that wipes the floor with Any Mediocre Device.
