Phenom II x 6 1055T can be a huge bottleneck. - Page 20  

post #191 of 422
WoW only uses 2 cores.

No, I don't think it was unstable because every other benchmark I ran was right where it should have been.

I did everything from 16 hours of prime to days of folding, I had no issues other than in some games it clearly was bottlenecking one card and I wanted to go SLI.

Ha actually end cost to me going to sandy is 50 bucks I sold my phenom x 6 and board to my friend who only had a a x 2. Hes only running one card so I told him it would kill that 5830 hes got. i5 sandy for 50 not bad still cost more your right, but price performance. lol, way worth it.

I could not be happier with my decision. Oh and if you think BD will be in 200 dollar rage your still thinking wrong my man. I have no "proof" except compare how much their old FX chips where back in the day then adjust for inflation. No way its gonna be in 200 range atleast not the model that will be beating my i5.

Review sites like anandtech and toms have posted WoW benchmarks showing similar results. It's just a game that AMD cpus are terrible in, sadly that game is the worlds most popular and successful MMO.

That's not to say you can't get playable frame rates from a processor from AMD. But wow--they turn in significantly lower average frame rates in Cataclysm. Like, even the fastest unreleased six-core CPU gets pegged at 60 FPS with a GeForce GTX 480 under the hood. Thinking the problem could have been with our graphics card, we even swapped in a Radeon HD 5870 and saw the same ceiling at 59 frames per second. You can get more performance for about $150 less from a dual-core Core i3-530. Sad.

Ya, I wish I would have known this info before I got mine. Thats why I post now to try to help anybody with crossfire 6950s or above. Some people on here will cliam their rig is not bottlenecked but they are not running our cards. hopefully you will be able to overclock to help some.

i know how you are feeling, if i knew it was my CPU that had died i would have gone to SB i think. They seem to perform ALOT better in games then AMD - sure they cost more but with that at least you get better performance

Fair enough. I was just wondering if you thought BD would have been a better choice considering your budget. I didn't intend to make a huge argument out of it. If you can go from PhII to SB for only that much then fair play, but you didn't say you sold it.

Also i said this earlier:

That's not a very good comparison, and a very inaccurate conclusion.

Those chips your talking about were priced at nearly $1,000 and were competing with the high end Pentium 4's which also cost nearly $1,000.

The only chips today that cost that much are the Intel 980x and 990x.

By your logic SB should have also cost $1,000 when it was released.

When SB came out it cost just a bit more then PhII because it was designed to compete with it. And BD is intended to compete with SB so it only makes sense that it will be priced accordingly.

There may possibly be a high end version of BD that might compete with the 980x/990x but so far nothing like that has been announced.

anandtech usually leaves the northbrige at stock...kills performance...cpu-nb will usually yeild 10-15 percent in most game if you clock it to 3000ghz. everythign helps. =) ill milk this cpu until the bulldozer is out...i wanna mess with it..and if its not up to par...bye bye bulldozer and off to sb 2600k.
