Another thing you have to remember is that AMD and intel chips differ in their instruction sets and will go back and forth over different games. This is why you will see most gamers using AMD. It is cheaper which allows more money for GPU's which are still the main bottleneck in systems today.

Reasons to go intel:
If you code, encode, render, compile, basically boring work type stuff intel is for you and will save you time compared to AMD. Other then that X58 is the other reason you can SLI or Xfire. Remember tho All MB's can SLI, just not Xfire, and with the SLI hack you may experience trouble until the next patch addresses them. Also you will see slightly less performance with the hack compared to native.

Reasons for AMD:
Gaming, Budget, normal computer use, not doing work type things 24/7.

AMD is very close to intel in performance but intel fan boys will not tell you this and AMD fan boys will tell you AMD is better. They are both wrong!

These have been my opinions and if you don't like them to bad, prove me wrong!


With both AMD and Intel they have their own bottlenecks.
AMD:
FSB, NB, only dual channel for the moment
Intel:
Bclk, Unicore, IOH, and only being able to use low voltage ram.

Anyway, 5870 gets here tomorrow XFX online support finally gave me an Ok on my RMA so that has to go out tomorrow one comes in and the other goes out
Glad to see you got such a quick result Eclipse, not long and you'll be scaring the proverbial off another Hapless Card

Although the files got wiped, this within 5% of my scores on my i980x.

I did notice that there is a bottleneck at 96% of GPU1 and about 94% on GPU2. Now what that would probably be translated as this is what you would see in real world performance with Windows running stuff in the background. It also tells me that my score may increase 50~100 points at 4.2 GHz or using a 3.8~4.0GHz clocked i7 (HyperThreading maybe handling background tasks for example.)

I ran each test 3 times and showed the middle sample. The tests consist of running the entire Heaven benchmark which is 26/26 tests. Settings are all the same with a few changes on each header.
That's fantastic! about 6 fps over what I've seen elsewhere with a much higher top end you must be chuffed mate are the PNY XLR8's factory overclocked or reference clocks?

6970's left the warehouse via courier for delivery about 2 hours ago, the wait is killing me!!!

@Raging- Great benchmarks!

@Eclipse- Yeah, I understand your point. I am not the one to fight about who's being better and all that stuff. I finally own an Intel rig and to be honest, I don't see any difference at all. I haven't played games on my i7 rig yet (don't plan to) but I did use it for encoding on both system. I tell ya, the i7 really rip my AMD rig. Is this why i7 is better for apps?

Fast? it was nothing but slow IMHO took 3 or 4 days I dont remember. With MSI I had an RMA number in 15 minuets although I was able to talk to them over the phone so....

lol they will come

i7 is better for apps(encoding and such) because of the instruction set. Intel instructions set is much better for those type of things.

Nope they are stock clocks. XLR8 comes with the 5 year warranty, no hassle RMA, and a bunch of extra peripherals including a 10ft MiniHDMI to HDMI 1.4 (1.4a I think) connector

I am not done yet, I am trying to get 1700 score now SEE THIS IS WHY I SHOULDN'T BE ASKED TO BENCHMARK.

Bah! this exactly WHY you should be asked to benchmark besides it'll give me something to feel miserable about once I start benching my 6970's lol

Hi Cain- would it be possible to properly install a Noctua NH-D14 on an extreme with 2 tall memory sticks in the black memory slot ?

will the Fins on the Noctua NH-D14 clear 2 tall memory sticks in the black memory slot ?

thanks

exactly what Lukather said! This benching session we seem to have going here may force me to take my tech bench out side Sunday night it is supposed to get down to 8 degrees that night! I just have to be careful not to let the water cool down too much or it will freeze in the rad. Been there done that

I don't think many people realize that one side actually has longer heatpipes than the other on the NH-D14. If I could shimmy the Extreme's NB heatsink a good 1mm or 2 to the left, I could rotate the Noctua around (and install it properly as an exhaust) very good chance I could have all 4 DIMM slots clear from the actual heatsink. But easily the two black ones.

@Eclipse: You can be god of the water, Poseidon, and I will be god of the Air/Sky, Zeus , haha I kid, that sounds way to egotistical for my palette.

I think I might squeeze out 1750 from Heaven. We will see this weekend

Damn Eclipse where are you living? Temps like that'd keep frosty indoors: D unfortunately Downunder has seen 130 in recent weeks where I am: / damn summer, my airconditioner has it's tongue hanging out...
