[ExtremeTech] Phenom 8750 vs. C2D E8400 - Page 2

post #11 of 114
I dont think Overclocking should be a factor in this. Not everybody Overclocks. I think people forget this way to easily.

I am glad to see the Phenom pack some punch in the gaming arena...this is good news.

Well put, and a sound statement. I know many friends who are to afraid to Overclock and happy with stock performance, so to see AMD offer a well priced gaming solution at stock speeds is great

Indeed and thats what matters most. Stock Speed performance is what you should look at at the end of the day. If its good at stock compared to the competition then Overlocking in the future can only benefit you more.

It should not be ''Well as it does not OC well then why bother''...if it is then I think you need to re-organise your thought process.

I would reccomend opening task manager and closing the process ''IntelFanboy.exe''

If only that were the case for AMD.

Dual vs tri, what kind of biased crap is this? They should have used a q6600, it costs the same as an 8750. e8400's don't really shine unless OC'd.

I know I'm going to catch crap for this, as was evident by one member's "preemptive strike"...

Don't wait for Paul... Every other review I have seen has shown that in single threaded gaming the e8400(not OC'd) is a better choice. Here are some reviews to back up my claim,

what do you man biased??? tri core CPUs were supposed to compete with intels dual core CPU for the same price when at stock because that's what 99% of the market cares about.

anyways when i build a midrange computer for a customer, i might go with a pheom tri core...

Or maybe those comments arise from the fact that this site is called "Overclock.net" and furthermore it is known to be inhabited by enthusiasts. It is obvious chips will be rated according to how well they can overclock. We have always known that Phenoms can stand their own at stock speeds.

Single threaded gaming.. Yesterday tech.

Why do people have quad cores when they dont show much of an advantage over a dual core in single threaded gaming? Because more cores = more power when using the same architecture.

Besides, CPU's arnt what really influences gaming performance anyways; its more about the GPU.
