The abundance of Intel fanboys who consistently chime in a comment on "intel pwns 1090t" is ridiculous. It doesn't "pwn" it. In fact it's the other way around. As far as price : performance ratio is concerned, AMD "pwns" the 980x. I'm not saying the 980x isn't fast; however, computers only need be so fast before they become time machines
The intel fanboys mostly do nothing but talk down the X6 processors, when in reality, they are amazing CPU's.
Now, to clear things up, I use my Leo system for gaming (system in my sig), plus I have 2 other machines. A Q6600 (3ghz) which I use for my home development server (Web Server 2008 R2, cause I'm a web developer), and an i7 920, which dubs as both a HTPC and a rendering box (virtualdub and stuff) for HD video. That being said, calling ME an AMD fanboy would be redundant. I simply call it as I see em, and what I see is a bunch of Intel fanboys who have little to NO experience with the 1090T talking it down.
EDIT: Also, my Leo gaming machine below runs Crysis at very high (1920x1080, max AA, etc), at no less than 40fps at all times. I realize thats mostly video card intensive, but still.Edited by Paladin Goo - 6/10/10 at 10:02am
