Haven't visited OCN in awhile, hows AMD?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Any new line of processors I should be aware of? I'm planning on switching to AMD once something new comes out because Intel thinks its funny to force their customers to pay for new motherboards whenever they release a new CPU line.

I stream HD in justin.tv and can't quite get optimal FPS with my q9550 at 4.0 and am waiting on something with more cores from AMD.

Yes. Bulldozer.

To get all the new features of it, you do need AM3+, though they run on AM3 too.

I hope Bulldozer turns out to be what was promised, I want AMD to succeed.

Damn, sounds great. Would love to get back into this site again. Haven't visited much since I hit 4.0 because I've had no reason to upgrade. 1080p streaming takes tons of CPU resources however.


I'll gladly upgrade my motherboard/ram for this "Bulldozer" if it is what its hyped up to be.

Oh man, you're right. I originally read here: http://news.softpedia.com/news/AMD-B...s-187009.shtml that they did, but that has been denied. Oh well, I am in need of a new mobo anyway.

I can stream HD vids on Justin.tv fine with a Pentium T2310 (mobile) at 70%. If you're not getting the FPS you want with a q6600, then you wont get it with any CPU.

How is that even taking that much cpu power? I mean i stream 1080p youtube with my crappy laptop c2d t6600 and it's at 30fps...Your browser or something is seriously unoptimized

You misunderstood me, or I didn't include enough information..I am sorry for that.

I stream video games in 1080p. I am a competitive Heroes of Newerth player and it is very taxing to play a video game maxed out and stream 1080p at the same time.

edit : Removed my stream link, don't want to advertise
