Re: [OC] AMD Bulldozer overclocking preview.

That's one think I don't like about Intel. They change sockets like I change socks. I don't understand how a 4 core CPU beats a 6 core CPU at malty threaded tasks.

No one does, except Intel and Mobo manufacturers. My i7-920 will hold me over until the next "tick" comes around (the successor to LGA1155). At least.

I am not an engineer and can't offer a technical explanation, but I would hypothesize that Intel has better manufacturing and coding and spends more money optimizing its chips. I would love to see AMD give them a run for their money, but it's just not happening.

Remember Bulldozer was originally slated for a Q2 2011 launch, which makes me think it was originally designed to compete against LGA1155. I don't know if they can even do that now, and will get absolutely crushed in the pricing scheme as LGA2011 drops.

Not to mention that AMD is just getting a 32nm chip out the door now, and Ivy Bridge (Intel's tri-gate, 22nm die shrink) is slated for spring of next year--rumors notwithstanding. The longer AMD delays Bulldozer, the more irrelevant the company becomes. When can consumers hope for a 22nm AMD chip, and will it be properly executed?

If I were AMD I would skip 32 NM and be focused on a 22 NM part.

I did a compairson be tween a i5 2400 and a 2500k and my cpu lost by no verry much.

You have to factor in the 2400 and 2500K in those graphs represent their stock level performance while your 1055T is overclocked. The results for the 2500K will be much different at 4.5GHz as you can reach this clock speed with 99% of the 2500K chips out there without any problems.

These are all over clocked to about the same speed as my cpu.

Pretty sure the 2500K is stock. The 2500K has a turbo frequency of 3.7GHz

May a digress a little if I may.

This person is running a 6850. How does a 6850 crush a 5770 cross fire setup.

"We told you so" that it's a dumb idea to Crossfire two low end video cards. 5770s are so weak that a single 6850 blows them away? That's awesome.

Hopefully you will stick to single card solutions from now on.
