That is actually a very interesting thread, if you can read around all the garbage that people are putting/ have pu up.
This was my response when I saw it quoted: http://www.overclock.net/general-pro...ml#post9498303
I said last month that I would tell you what Maximum PC says in it's testing of the new AMD Phenom II x6 T1055 chip. First of all it has won the honor of being the top recommended "Budget Processor" the list they now feature on the last page in the mag.
Next, it isn't so fast. They compare it to the 2.8Ghz i-7 860 which is an 1156 LGA proc that costs $279.99 shipped and the 2.66 core i-5 750 which is also an 1156 LGA, costing $199- shipped. Those are both 95watt chips that have 4 cores and Hyper Threading. They also put it up against the old 3.4Ghz Phenom II X4 965BE, just to show how it matches up in the tests.
They're trying to make a Performance/ Price comparison and not just use the new 6 core intel speed demon and trounce all over AMD, I think they're also sticking with 45nm chips becuase reduced size automatically makes a faster chip. So, the results, the only thing the new AMD chip excels in is 3D modeling, specifically Cinebench 10 64bit, Cinebench 11.5 64bit and POV Ray 3.7. In that department the new chip kicks intels behind, it came close in the Fritz Chess Benchmark (also 3D) and the Adobe Lightroom benchmark. I don't know anything about the Adobe program.
Then, we have a new list. Under the heading of "8 Signs a Geek Has Too Much Money", #1 is this baby: http://www.leatherman.com/argentum/
it list for $40,000- they don't say if shipping is free or not.
I noted that one because of our recent discussion of the multi-tools.
The only other one that stunned me was at #5, if you want the ultimate in office luxury, get youself one of these: http://www.xtenchair.com/
This baby is designed by Pinafarina, they help design the top of the line Ferrari interiors, so they know thier stuff about seating. Really though, you ever sit in a high end sports car? They usually aren't too comfortable, but they are pretty. This chair will only set you back $1,500,000!
For that kind of money, you can put 2 Ferraris in your office and use your computer from there.
