[TPU] Intel Accelerating Ivy Bridge Unveiling to Computex 2011 - Page 8

post #71 of 157
The biggest Issue I see for Intel is this...


i7-950 & i7-2600k = $290 - $320 (roughly)

i7-980x = $1,000

That's a HUGE GAP & HOLE TO FILL!!!

i7-2600k @ 5 GHz Kind of filled the hole, though at stock it only produces a +13% to +20% Performance gain over i7-950....

Soon AMD enters with Bulldozer/Zambezi 8 Core CPU $300-$400?? +50% Performance over i7-950...(RUMORS)

Is this the answer??? IT BETTER BE!!! or AMD = FAIL / BUST (as in broke)!!!

Why else would Intel be rushing to push Ivy Bridge on the table so fast???? THIS HAS GOT TO BE THE ANSWER!!!!!

I could be wrong, but I'm very confident in my assessment here!

What's wrong with Sandy Bridge? Why shouldn't people be buying it? IT'S FASTER.

Is everyone dwelling in stupidity and idiocy today?
It's not that there is a problem with Sandy Bridge.....

But who wants a +15% to +30% performance gain (or less!)????

People were, disappointed, to say the least, add in the recall and you have a problem, add the unknown factor of Bulldozer and you have a really big problem if in fact it's GOOD 2 GO!!!!

When they make a CPU that produces 50-100 % gains in performance, then you have something to write home about, till then, meh!

People look at SB and go MEH!!!! (I'm NOT saying everyone goes meh, but as you can see I'm not wrong either!)

So, you are basically admitting that you are a narrow-minded individual who thinks that everyone that has a Sandy CPU upgraded from LGA 1156/1366?

Just so you know, I upgraded from LGA 775, and let me tell you, the gains are well over 50% in performance increase.

And even if I did upgrade from 1366, how would that be your business? How would that be ANYONE's business?

A performance increase IS a performance increase. And Sandy Bridge is faster.

So, instead of spitting out absolute crap, look around and try not to act like the complete idiot you are coming across as.

LGA 2011 buries bulldozer. then digs it back out, gives it a nice tune up, and finally hurls it over a cliff, hard.

A 980x at 3.5ghz (rumored bd clock) will be around 50% faster than a 950 as well... More cores tends to do that.

Welcome to 2011 computing then....

Yes I was speaking from the perspective of 1366 as a comparison, but when you start doing the math in Price vs Performance, Sandy Bridge makes good sense vs a Pentium Dual Core / Core 2 Duo / Core 2 Quad... I'm not saying it's NOT a viable choice it is, FOR NOW...

And when Bulldozer becomes a viable choice, you STILL won't be wrong for making your choice, not even remotely...

What I am saying is, why go to SB when Bulldozer is around the corner though? Does that sound idiotic?

LGA 2011 is coming too, as stated above, but will it beat Bulldozer that bad?

That I would have to see...

NEVERTHELESS, I'm good for another year or two with my rig...

Like I said before, keep cranking what you got, watch to see what falls down the line, and LOOK BEFORE YOU LEAP..... Bad advice?

Let's get this straight - I agree that AMD better do something amazing with Bulldozer (and I certainly hope they do), but for now it's all as you said - RUMORS! That 50% performance over an i7-950 figure, for example, is completely illegitimate.

If this in fact true, then AMD might as well pack up shot in the Home Desktop Market, let's get real here, if Intel has them beat 9 ways to Sunday and LGA 2011 fills the i7-950 to i7-980 Gap, then good for Intel, and unfortunately bad for AMD...

Till LGA hits the table though, I'll be watching for Bulldozer Specs....

This is all I want to see, nothing else!!!

For if in fact AMD fails to deliver, we could be headed for some SERIOUS price gouging!!!




Why?

Because Intel wouldn't need to lower their prices, there is 0 competition, AMD would then have to lower prices significantly just to stay in the market, but Intel would go the other direction making them hurt EVEN MORE!!! When Intel raises prices AMD would fall off a cliff if they didn't raise prices too, and in the end Intel wins wins and wins some more!!! The consumer will frown at the end of the day and say...

What went wrong? Everything was getting cheaper, then blam, everything got really expensive!!!

Economist would call me crazy, but you have got to figure in Inflation, which is bound to eventually come to the Tech market...

Tech has been behind inflation for a LONG LONG Time, prices have continually fell, surely Tech will need to rise up to match real current values of the dollar, otherwise Investors may start to thin....

Deflation or Inflation, you decide...
