Exactly. AMD has their place, No doubt.
I have an AMD proc, and ATI gpu in my HTPC.. Last 4 Sig Rig proc's were AMD..
I just get really irked when AMD kids try to act like just because they paid less for their proc, that somehow makes it better...

they made too much noise about this issue. cmon amd guys dont deny that intel is miles away ahead of amd. lets say when bulldozer drops is as fast sandybridge, what about ivi bridge. you see you get what you pay for.
if bulldozer is as fast as the setup i have and cheaper i consider moving to amd.

This is a possibility for me as well, but I dont like looking forward and thinking about it. How long is it gonna take them to come up with a new architecture to keep pace with the industry steam roller? Look how long they kicked K10 around for.

i think what they going to do is physically remove the sata2 ports and sell for a cheaper price to OEMs that will use it for systems with 1 or 2 hard drives (which are most systems nowadays) and especially the business class since they don't tend to upgrade. Lucky ones will be geting ASUS ones with 4 sata 3.0's or Gigabyte UD7!!

agree and +rep : )

however i really do hope amd catches up with intel on the high end market.

just imagine a market where amd and intel go head to head in the high end market and prices are just being cut left and right : ).

Yup, they sell them to OEMs. They will then build mobos with just two SATA ports available or use a secondary controller.
Once again...

This is Overclock.net, Faster = Better, Period END OF STORY !!
Actually faster = better is NOT the whole story...

One of the main points in even overclocking to begin with is to get more performance out of a cheaper chip! So, a CPU which cost $100 that could be on par with a $200 chip is a great value/deal, and the whole point in being an overclocker to begin with is about getting more value out of your chip! Phenom IIs are pretty good overclockers, it's just too bad they aren't much cheaper... (AMD would capitalize big time!)

Unfortunately for Intel, AMD has been kicking them sideways in price vs performance, it's true, however, with the release of Bulldozer, Intel may NOT be all that and a bag of chips anymore!!!

Nevertheless, Sandy Bridge is definitely a great set of chips (for now), & it's $200 to $300 for i5/i7 respectively, but better than this, it completely destroys all current AMD CPUs in performance.... What AMD CPU is going to stack up to the i5-2500k???? 5 GHz on Air?
Cough *bow down* cough..

Alas, Intel reign as supreme master of the universe may very well be short lived indeed!!! (I'm anticipating Bulldozer to PLOW INTEL OVER!)

Paying $100 - $140 for a CPU that is definitely fast enough that you can also OC to get even better performance seems very intelligent, I don't care how fast Sandy Bridge is.. The Athlon II X4 & Phenom II X4 are definitely stellar CPUs & they are cheap!!! What is there not to like, cheap & good, win + win = win, still!

If you paid $300 for a CPU that goes 5 GHz but it doesn't produce 100% more performance than the $100 to $150 CPUs, it's NOT GOOD ENOUGH!

Mark my words, you may very well be eating those chips!!!

Bulldozer will OUTPERFORM SB & it will be Cheaper TOO!!!

They clearly stated in their blog that Bulldozer is going to WIN WIN & YES WIN SOME MORE! (That's as in ALL POINTS)

Or would AMD be just blowing wind up our behind? Why would they give it a name like bulldozer if it wasn't worthy eh?

Come on Intel fans, AMD DID IN FACT HOLD THE CROWN BEFORE!!!
What makes you think they can't do it again eh?

These are Engineers who came up with x64 Bit Technology, give them some credit sheeze!

This isn't a thread about bulldozer, or about AMD vs Intel. This is a thread about Intel shipping defective chipsets to OEMs, since they won't use those ports.
