What's the issue exactly?

Eh, get out. This thread asks the direct question if whether Intel is superior and the answer is a resounding yes. The one guy is trying to say there's a conspiracy against AMD. Sorry, but in this case people don't and are not required to respect a blatantly wrong opinion.

I personally have "respectfully" tried to iterate that Intel are better now. Who the hell knows what Bulldozer will be like? but the point is, 1156, 1155 and 1366 generation CPU's are all leaps and bounds better than current AMD offerings and thus in answer to the thread question, yes, Intel are better for gaming. Enough said. Get off your high horse.
If you can build an Intel rig equivalent to mine in performance for the $400 I payed for it, then I would gladly do it.

micro center has this deal where you get a i3 2100 for 99$ plus motherboard..which will out perform your overclocked rig

add in 5770 from classifieds here for about 100 tops, or even go higher and get say gtx 470 175$ off classifieds
use old case...pop in pre owned hdd with windows 7....

yeah i think it's easy to beat your build for 400$

especially since i can use my old things and free stuff i get from work...

if your hell bent on standing on your tall and mighty 400$ tower by all means, but what you paid is a moot point considering this threads direction

I wouldn't ever consider driving 500 miles to the nearest Microcenter. And call me poor, idgaf. At the time I built my rig, everyone was pointing to AMD within with my budget. I'm talking about ground up Intel rig for 400$ from newegg. Especially since I have a quad at 4.0ghz, is there an Intel cheaper for the same performance or better?

Is no one here considering the type of game being benched? FPS games really don't demand much from the CPU beyond AI and physics (and even the latter can be done with the GPU for some games). The AI in FPS games is, by comparison, simple. There's no strategy going on in BC2, just a set of algorithms for responding to what the player does.

Civ V and Shogun 2 on the other hand...

I think the i3 2100 + free mobo deal for $99 that was going on at Microcenter might be pretty close.

As long as you still buy a graphics card. Intel GPUs are in no way superior in gaming.



Honestly, though, this whole "argument" is 'tarded. I don't regret purchasing my Socket A, my socket 939, my 5000+, my 630 or my 1090. I also don't regret purchasing my i5 430um tablet. The 1090 is fine for what I need, isn't bottlenecking my 2 5770s in the games I play, and can be advantageous in my development work.

That said, I didn't purchase my computer components in the current market. If I had to go out and buy a gaming rig today? The price/performance on the 2500k is just too compelling to pass up. The only total AMD product/platform that I'd recommend is Zacate, and that's kinda niche.

Care to explain then?!?! SB its more efficient but its not THAT much better in games?!?!?! Really?!?!?

It is more efficient, its a newer arch, it have more horsepower to drive anything and its proved with results that its "that much better in games"

If your post its not been a fanboy then i dont get what it is.. because it doesnt even make sense at all

Anyone with overclocked 5870s or better please provide exactly what I have.
Can some one please do this so we can have something objective?

LOL don't worry, I'm not going crazy yet. There's no issue. The thing is that we've seen very well that pretty much every AMD CPU bottlenecks an SLI/Crossfire system. However, when you have one card, it seems the system sees no significant (or any) bottleneck. My case is a good example - I get nothing below 99-100% usage on my GPU. I guess if I had three cards however, then I'd suffer.

Because SB's core efficiency plays a big role when multitasking, not when gaming. Yes, it that simple. You are the fanboy here lol, since you cannot see the whole picture.

And why on earth would I prefer any of those sides? I don't have ANY of those, or anything close to this, so keep your wise remarks to yourself.
