You want benches? Here's one.

Here's another.

They're unreliable though but seem to be realistic. Looks like the Llano A8 and A6 will be weaker than the i3-2100 in CPU performance but dominate it in GPU performance (which is obvious). Like I said, I'm predicting it to be a great contender for OEM's to make entry level systems for businesses and regular consumers like your mom, grandparents, girlfriends who don't game etc.

I think AMD has a great chip right there for sweeping the consumer market and should take a large chunk of the prebuilt market. On the enthusiast and server side, AMD servers should be a good choice for companies to virtualize with and at least they have something that will let them catch up for the performance crown for enthusiasts to swoon over.

PS: I'm sure as we all know Intel HD3000 GMA is a joke and who would ever use onboard graphics on an enthusiast chip like the SB.

Well, both the A8 and A6 feature what's basically a tweaked Athlon II X4 die-shrink. It's to be expected that it falls behind the Sandy Bridge dual-core CPU in tasks that aren't heavily threaded.

The potential biggest win here is the mobile space. The integrated GPU on Llano is fast enough for casual gaming. If you're fine not playing at very high resolutions with the highest settings, Llano's pretty great. It would bring a relatively decent gaming experience even with an inexpensive desktop or a mainstream laptop.

I saw that movie...on a plane.

I do ~150K a year minimum. Right now I am sitting in a hotel room in paris, country 2 of 5 in only 2 weeks time. If anyone knows a good place for a beer in edinbrough, let me know

I have ~1.8M miles right now, the goal is to get to 2M, one more year, then I don't need to travel any more.

Oh, and all of the benchmarks that you are seeing popping up - those don't matter, they are not really representative of the performance.

If you're saying that Bulldozer performs even better, I am really impressed. Matching the 2600k core for core was more than enough for me.

Wanna flick some air miles my way JF? lol.
post #956 of 10602
To me, I dont care where it stands as far as Intel is concerned. I like AMD because its price is better, it preformes well, and does what I need it to do. Intel gets the finger from me just for being like an overpriced clothing line, yeah it looks good, but what are you really paying for. Bad analogy I know but its what came to mind.

I would just like to see BD in my rig, with a new mobo, so I can see how much of a hurting I can put on it.

Here's the question to ask yourself: What would the world look like without competition?

It would be horrible without competition, I just want to see the right order of things.

AMD more than deserves the top spot, Intel's had it long enough and the path they took to get there is shady at best.

Grey. But Im am just not concerned with Intel anymore. I had an intel lappy and I just want BD because, well I love new tech.
