My faith in AMD? - Page 7

post #61 of 69
This is my third AMD CPU in a row. I haven't owned a desktop Intel PC in almost ten years.

My next build will be Intel. Screw brand loyalty, they're all just multinational corporations anyway, not like you can fly their flag. If AMD can't even get close I'm not going to waste my money on them.

They are also 'going green' and are more concerned with servers, home media PCs, integrating the GPU with the CPU.. These are all things that I couldn't care less about. If they are no longer interested in keeping up in the performance market I am not interested in them.

what if nvidia buys AMD? hahhaa i still have my opty 165.. despite the good prices on those intel cpus like the Q6600, i'm not upgrading anytime soon... my opty isn't the fastest but can still chew whatever i throw at it.

BUT... if amd cannot keep up, my next upgrade/rig will be with intel for sure...

But for now all i have to say is there cpus and mobos are outrageous prices.
AMD 6400 x2 is 3.2 ghz they will overcome Intel one day soon...I just have a gut feeling, right now Intel's fastest processor is 3.2 ghz stock right?

Intel clock for clock is much faster than AMD Athlon

E8200 which is clocked at 2.66GHz smokes 6400+, and E8200 consume much less power as well

Check this review
http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/cpu...t_3.html#sect1

Even E4600 which is a budget Intel CPU performed better than 5600+ most of the time, and it was close to 6000+

So, I think the new Allendale chip E4700 at stock speeds would perform better on average than 6000+, yet E4700 is slightly cheaper, overclocks better and consume much less power.

AMD Proc's give good performance for their price, waaay better than the dayum expensive Intel ones

I garantee you wouldnt really notice the difference between a X2 6000+ and an E6600 if you were just using your computer, msn, web, listening to music, perhaps the odd game

If I were just using my computer for MSN, web browsing and listening to music I would just use the laptop I am on right now.

When I build a PC from scratch it is quite given I want it to perform. Being stupid I bought AMD, thinking that the status quo when they only had pentium 4's to compete with was still valid. Turns out I could've built a core 2 duo PC that would cost me less, perform better at stock and have better overclocking potential.

I've been an AMD fanboy since the early 2000's, but now I don't care what it says on the heatspreader, I care about performance for money. That's not what this is, this is foolishness.

Man you have been brainwashed by the Intel fanboy police...

You honestly wouldnt notice the difference

No, I agree with him completely. Based on the list of simple tasks you used as your example, you're right...he wouldn't know the difference. Nor would he know the difference between a Q6600 and a P4. Even the ancient crap in my rig handles all of those tasks just fine!

But you completely overlooked his assertion that he is looking for raw performance. This is an overclocking site after all, that's a completely common opinion. Benchmark results matter to most people here...otherwise people wouldn't care about getting obscene 3DMark scores and frames-per-second ratings three times what the human eye can actually detect. Whether someone can tell the difference in an e-mail program is about as relevant as what color the motherboard is...i.e., it's not, not even a little.

Price per performance level. I could care less who it's made by.

I just wish they were both compatible and we didn't need different mainboards.
