And this is coming from a guy who has both platforms.
I could have posted more huge charts showing i7 950, i7 920, i7 930, i5 750, Far Cry 2, Crysis, BC2, SC2, Metro, (AMD getting eaten in all of them) but it would have made the post both huge and pointless as I would still be bombarded with the typical "lolomg fanboy" so why bother? I figured SC2 (a pretty CPU intensive game) would have gotten the point across; and it did (to those with a little common sense) as a dual core out
performs on par with (ok, ok, let me reword that to not offend you) a 6 core. I've built around 20 systems through the past year (I sell them) and have tossed between every AMD and Intel model you can think of according to the price level my buyer wants. That includes overclocking to maximize their performance and for the fun of it running benchmarks to compare to the other builds I've made.
INFERENCE - the reasoning involved in drawing a conclusion or making a logical judgment on the basis of circumstantial evidence and prior conclusions rather than on the basis of direct observation. (Prior conclusions being AMD just not quite meeting what Intel offers me)
Fanboy seriously needs to be part of the curse filter. Its users are becoming pests.
Ok, fanboy was inappropriate... so sorry about that. It's just that your arguments about BD FX might not reach 4Ghz and then using your thoughts about phenom to judge BD were so bunk that I figured you were trolling, sorry. Other people have already refuted those claims in this thread so I'll just leave it here.
Back OT, AMD is not going to release something WORSE that phenom. Counting them out now based on what they have done in the last 5 years in shortsighted.
Thanks for showing some common sense; it's a joke to find around here lately. I don't mind someone like yourself DISAGREEING (I don't care for ANYONE to agree with me) but immediately throwing the "lol fanboy" joke of a response is ridiculous and childishly annoying. This thread reminds me of all the PS3 threads. "Lol Stealth Pyro you're such a Sony fanboy get off their ship." Ummm... yea... I've had a PS3 for about a year now and I've played maybe 3 games on it if even that. I'd say that's the only Sony brand product I own right now. For AMD/Intel some here are throwing the same nonsense when I've probably owned more AMD CPUs than I have Intel.Edited by Stealth Pyros - 3/18/11 at 7:20am
