PostSubject: AMD's new release.   October 13th 2011, 12:48 pm

Has anyone heard about the new AMD Bulldozer CPU? It is 8 core - 3.6Ghz and upwards. I am thinking into getting it. I was going to get AMD Phenom II X4 955 - Quad Core - 3.2Ghz, or Intel i7.

Waffle, can you give me your opinion on the AMD Bulldozer? If you could, it would be helpful.

It would require me to buy a new motherboard. That is all.

I know that - I think ASUS Crosshair V Formula Motherboard supports it.

What a shitmouth full is that.

I won't upgrade any time soon, current rig still works perfectly fine. BF3 at highest settings, Crysis 2 at highest settings, all around 40-50 FPS.

What's the current motherboard you are using at the moment?

I know it has to be AM3/AM3+ socket, as AMD only supports that.

That's why I have it. It was best around price/performance when I bought it.

Reviews are saying it is not so good, and i7 is still best. How can 6 cores beat 8 cores?

By how it's built.

Because the Intel i series has multithreading, which are basically virtual cores. For example the i5 I have, has 4 physical cores, but it performs on a level higher, at around the 6-8 core mark.

Not going to go into detail, because hardware isn't exactly my area of expertise, but I will say that technologically, Intel is still ahead of AMD.

Nice comment, and AMD do create some really good GFX cards what many people take use of. I would switch to Intel if they lowered the prices of their CPU's. AMD may be behind, but they are catching up.

Price wise maybe, but Intel will be leaders for a while. Bulldozer will be ahead for a few months, nothing more.

Intel is ahead of AMD in that area, and will be for a while, but for price/performance, AMD is leading.

Same as ATI vs NVIDIA cards, NVIDIA cards are ahead of ATI cards, but price/performance, ATI is ahead.

Yes, that's exactly what it's like at the moment. Bulldozer might change that, but only until Intel release their new chipset.
