amd vs intel comparison - Page 3

post #21 of 46
You do realize that a 1090T @ 4.4 has been proven to bottleneck a SINGLE 470.

No such bottlenecks have been shown with the 2500K by the same user.

2500K = best bang for buck for gamers, and many other uses as shown in the benchmarks posted here:
http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/288?vs=146

Did your 1090T beat the pants off the 2500K in these benches?

Face it, the 1090T is no longer the best bang for buck.

If all you do is gaming and browse then there is no need for an upgrade, if you want an upgrade just get another 460 for sli, they are beastly

Whatever is quad core (future ready) and cheapest really if you are just gaming. An AMD 955 Phenom II would work, so will any i5 (SB) or any i7.

Graphics card is where it will matter most.

Pardon my ignorance with this whole Bulldozer CPU, but is this the messiah CPU that is going to put AMD on the top of the food chain once again over Intel? And if so, for how long? Everyone keeps talking as if this is the real contender vs Intel, but last time I remember a single CPU generated so much buzz was when the Core Duos were introduced. The only info I was able to retrieve was the it might do a turbo mode to 4.0Ghz from factory and its got 8 cores.

Also, now that I have finally built a AMD rig, I really can't attest to the whole "saving money" thing... I don't know that it really saved me any money at all compared to a i7 build... Maybe $50 bucks or so, off of a $800 bill. If "saving money" isn't the whole appeal behind AMD anymore, is it just brand loyalty at this point?

It is supposed to be. But to be quite honest it will probably be like most apple products, over hyped and under powered.

This is AMD's 1st major architecture change in MANY years, on paper it looks like it will perform well. People are saying to wait for 4 reasons.

1) If BD outperforms SB - Intel will have to drop prices

2 ) If the price is right, you build a BD rig instead.

3) If BD doesn't beat SB, you build a SB rig confidently.

4. The major reason for waiting is the uncertainty of BD's performance, there's nothing reliable about it.

Because there's so much uncertainty, it's better to wait and see what AMD is finally bringing to the table, especially since it's due out in a couple months.

Despite the SATA issues with SB, most people are pretty satisfied with their SB rigs, especially since we now know that Ivy Bridge processors will be compatible on 1155, and they do have an upgrade path.

Also, to comment on the 2nd post. That's exactly why RIGHT NOW, people who build AMD rigs are wasting money, the whole AMD is cheaper to build argument is no longer valid with the 2500K being priced at only $229. That's by far the best price/performance chip available, period.

If Bulldozer had a chance to beat Sandy Bridge, don't you think that AMD would have released at least something that would at least tease that notion to promote more people to wait around the time of the Sandy Bridge release? Or even do their typical ATI marketing where they actually release the product before the competition can release theirs?

When you are the underdog going into a fight, does the silence promote confidence or fear?

I guess it remains to be seen. I am actually MORE interested to see the reaction from long time fans of the AMD regardless of the outcome, not so much what others like myself will do, who just float around brand to brand, going for which every one is faster for less money.

^ ^ Ha Ha - if BD doesn't deliver, tears will be shed. LOL

I hear ya on the floating around a bit. My 1st choice was a 1090T for my build, but after further research, and under a $100 difference, it didn't make sense to go AMD, as it didn't suit my needs at that time.
