Hmm I'm just thinking.
About the AMD 1055T temperatures, could AMD just be over reacting a little about the 62C mark? Just like the voltages? It says Max is 1.4 but you could tke it to 1.5 or 1.53V just fine because everyone says its still safe and AMD can always take a good beast in.
And home come Intel chips cab run upon like 85C fine while overclocking? On the i7's? If Intel can go that high, I'm sure the 1055T can as well.
At the end of the day silicone is silicone? Am I right? Lol its al the same
Anyways, now I going to see who can answer this one for me lol
I think you will find that it is not a silicone by silicone basis. Just because AMD and Intel cpus may use the same die size or silicone means absolutely nothing. The reason AMD cores have lower thresholds than Intel cores, is because of their architecture. It may not be apparent at first but the architecture plays a big role in the cpus working ability.
Take this example... say you have two squares of silicone with 3 copper wires running through the middle of each. (Imagine the 3 copper wires are the architecture), the silicone and transisters are exactly the same on both chips except for the wires..., the wires are of different sizes on the two chips. Now say you put a voltage through these 2 chips, applying the voltage through the wires... Which chip will heat up faster? well..., the one with the smaller wires will.
Pretty crap analogy but I hope you get my point.
Also on the pointer of architecture..., both amd and Intel cpus use different codes and string information to calculate operations. Because the complexity of the codes both cpus use are different, they create varying amounts of stress on the cores and therefore create different amounts of heat.
Also dont forget that Intel cpu's are smaller than AMD cpus and because of this can handle higher temps. Amd chips are larger and therefore generate more heat, because of this they have a lower threshold.
I hope this explains a few things for you.Edited by GreenNeon - 1/1/11 at 3:23pm
