I5 2500k or 1090T - Page 6

It will drive the 1090t price down, and provide solid competion for the Sandy Bridge 2500k (hopefully, or else all that hype is a hole in the ground).
How is it unfair?

One is a 6 core, while the other is a Quad Core, and the difference is $30.

When Bulldozer comes out with its 8 cores, it will be compared to SB's 4 cores, that's not fair either, I'm gonna start complaining now.

But if BD is priced the same as SB, then it's fair game.

Even when the price goes down for the 1090T, the performance doesn't magically go up. Sure the whole price / performance argument comes in to play, but it's already $199 now, how much lower can it get?

Can AMD afford to sell their stuff so cheap forever due to their lack of performance?

$230 for the 2500K is very reasonable considering the performance and high overclocks you are getting, and some people want the best performance, rather then settling for less.

We'll see what BD really brings to the table, and can hopefully close the gap, it should easily outperform SB since it has twice the number of cores.

I think I might hold off on getting another i5-2500k and 1155 board when they come out again... I'm thinking I may want to wait and see what bulldozer is bringing.

I dunno, I want to give AMD a chance though, because whatever I get next I'll be locked into for a few years probably.

I would pair the I5 2500k with a ASUS P8P67 PRO.

See sig for amd set.
AMDs curret chips are fine and all but they are running on very old architecture and are far from being future proof when compared with the 2600k and 2500k.

Wait for bulldozer , or wait a bit longer and dive into a sandy bridge set up , the chips are quite powerful.

So I will wait for BS and the rest of SB to come out and just bank on some savings until there here.

Also don't forget Intel's 2500k has an IGP that most people won't use. It wastes 20% die space. AMD's Bulldozer won't waste a single mm of space. It will be smaller than current Thuban, so prices will remain affordable.

I honestly can not see Bulldozer losing against current I7 2600k.

I hate "Future proof" theres a new something that is better in the computer industry non stop. Get an Intel you wont regret it. By time you wait for BD something new will be on the bench from somewhere else and someone will tell you Might as well wait for that.

This is very true. Also, JF-AMD confirmed that the Bulldozer will be marketed as "cores" vs "modules"

If an 8 core BD cannot beat an Intel Quad Core, AMD is in trouble.
