post #11 of 27
New chips from Intel will all be on new sockets as far as I heard (1155/2011). AMD has, on the other hand, confirmed that AM3 will get at least some Bulldozer chips that will run on AM3 boards (Not AM2+, Bulldozer has no DDR2 controller).

The thing being, we've not seen Bulldozer yet, so all we have is hints from AMD that it will leave the current PhenomII platform in the dust. Which still only means that it's likely to equal the current i7 range from Intel clock for clock. Could be faster tho, we'll see when the silicon hits the shelves.

To be honest, if I were buying a rig right now, and I had the money, I'd still go for 1366 and Intel, as it's the fastest thing around right now. If the benching isn't that important, then the AMD rig will be almost as fast, and a heck of a lot cheaper (chips cost about the same, but top end AM3 boards cost the same as cheap 1366 boards)

However, I notice from your sig that you run an i7 right now, why not just stick with that?

Where was the confirmation of that?

I must of missed that, the last I head was that AMD was going to release it onto the AM3 socket but then found that the socket AM3 wasn't enough to achieve their vision.

well I am an AMD fanboy and would choose the amd system over intel. BUT in your case I would say that the 17 95 is a far better choice as the i7 950 is much better than a 1090t. go for the i7

Bulldozer has already been confirmed to be on socket AM3+ only.
post #16 of 27
I'd suggest the 1366 system.

The i7 950 is superior to anything AMD has to offer. Not only that, but you can upgrade to a 6 core that will actually be good when the prices go down.

The AM3 socket will NOT get any better because no new architecture will be released for it. They can only release new CPUs with slightly higher clock speeds.

At least with 1366 you have the option to upgrade to the 6 core I mentioned, which is beastly.

Either way you go, if you want the new architectures you'll HAVE to upgrade. At least with AM3+ when it comes out, you can take your AMD CPU and plunk it in the new motherboard, but that doesn't mean the performance will be any better.

I've fooled around with AMD and Intel over the past year and have found the best overall combo being an Intel CPU with an Nvidia GPU. I've had more reliability issues with AMD products =/... which sucks because I enjoyed AMD for the longest time.

Like whats been said before, benchmarks and gaming would be better off with the i7 and encoding would do better with the X6. Real world, about the same.

Also as far as I know, its not clear that Bulldozer will be compatible with AM3. I've read from some sources that it will use an AM3+ socket which will be backwards compatible with AM3 chips. So you can run older CPUs like Phenom IIs and such but Bulldozer will only run in AM3+.

1366 and 1156 aren't getting SB, the new 1155 and down the line 2011 sockets will.
I'd wait for SB since its so close. Its faster clock than the i7s and unless you are running a high end multi GPU setup, having two X8 lanes won't hurt you. Or maybe if you run applications that greatly benefit by having tri channel memory. And yes, blah blah blah its replacing the mainstream 1156 CPUs... But its newer and to no surprise faster. Some people have sore holes since they bought top range CPUs that are now outclassed, so they'll say things like SB is slower etc etc.

edit* man I'm slow at this replying stuff

^^^This... ask yourself... What do you really gain above your current i7 rig? 1366 i7 (920/950) CPUs have all the same capabilities and both will clock very similar. The only exceptions on the 1366 platform are the x6 i7s, which cost alot. With AMD x6 you also gain 2 cores, but are you doing anything that needs them?

Stay with your 920, and overclock it.

This currently looks more of a lateral move from 1366 i7s. Sure SB will overclock better, but until their actual release the end of next week, other than some released benchmarking, no one has yet to confirm stable 24/7, and actual day to day improvements over 1366/i7s, may not be worth the short term "mainstream" move. It currently doesn’t look like the expenditure to move from 1366 to SB is worth the effort of a new platform, rather than wait 9 months for socket 2011 as the “real” upgrade from 1366. Who knows… Once the NDA is lifted, we may find out differently.

I like AMD, but I’m not sure I would do anything new right now with AM3+ and BD around the corner, if I was sitting on the OP’s current i7 rig.

With only one or two new Extreme x6 1366 i7s (990x & 995x) releases planned, 1366 is dead by year end, other than the current lot of i7 CPU choices.

Personally I'd go with the i7 950. You get more ram and I think it's a little faster or a lot faster in some things.
