therefore, it was not a waste at all because for the SAME price i get more performance; and at the time NO ONE knew about the bugs so it wasnt a gamble either
Yours also runs hotter and has these bugs. Also mine is cheaper in the way of motherboards. Check AMD and Intel motherboard prices Intel boards are more costly. Also my CPU is cheaper. It is 140, yours is 165. And we ,like you said, have the same performance. Seams like the better deal is obvious.
|I'm not being ignorant about the problem. But I haven't experienced a single issue with c2d, and I know there are many others who will back me up on that.
Question to this community: Has one single member experienced these issues before 2 days ago before they were reported?
It just seems that as soon as this was "known" a lot of AMD guy jumps in and say, "wow look at that" or "intel sux hard". If we want to be professional, lets start by dissecting this problem, and actually seeing if there is a problem at all.
Maybe I'm not being professional is me not understanding the problem, but honestly, I haven't reported any instabilities with my C2D. Unless provoked by 4.0Ghz syndrome.....
You speak of being more mature when you just made a very immature post. Also, the problem does exist and I've discussed the stability issues in detail before theorizing that the CPUs often hang, this accounts for that problem. If there wasn't a problem Intel wouldn't hide what their patch fixed and tell everyone to patch their CPU.
