show us where on the doll AMD touched you
Defiance is good...
one european retailer that caters to enthusies DIY'ers is not the entire market nor is it good representation of it
but hey you continue to drink the amd kool aide
This might help the new member identify;
Yeah, Intel is not better
OCAU is becoming a thread crapping cesspool....
see he must be a big amd fan wore an amd shirt and went to computex to see an amd key note on their as he puts it "failzen"
lol im still not CJ Im not that bid an amd fanboi like I said If my children CAme Out as amd fans id disown them
talking about announcements at events hopefully we get some proper info from intel on their 10th gen desktop upgrades, I just bought a PC0-11 XL in white and am itching to do a new build into it with some nice new intel hardware
As a loooong time Intel user (I even persisted with the Pentium 4), I'm struggling to avoid the price vs cores/cache of AMD's latest designs.
I know, slap me.
Buy CJ dinner first and then anything goes once the lights go out. You might get your wish.
At the end of the day, argueing over the merits of both is pointless when it's well known that the MOS 6502 crapped all over the Z80.
Pfffft! Motorola 68000 was the man's CPU.
That god awful thing that got absolutely flogged by a pair of old Pentium III-S 1.4GHz server chips?
I'm more annoyed that for Intel's arrogance/greed that top of the line kaby lake i7 has just become the bottom barrel new i3, can't think of any other product go through something like this with 3 years
What do you mean? Last i checked my i7 8700k is still an i7 8700k
I used the Pentium III Tualatin, still have a Tualatin based retro PC in fact. This P4 was an overclocked Northwood, from 2.4 to 3.4Ghz - It went OK in the day.
the first batch of p4's were anemic. gutless. hopeless. the only thing they have going for them was newer memory tech and some new instructions, that no software at the time ran.
We actually ran some benchies comparing the Tualatin to the P4 Willamette in the retro forums using identical GPU's. They tended to trade blows until the Tualatin hit 1.7Ghz. Even then, if the benchmark was FSB intensive the P4 still had a slight edge.
Got the link ?
Here it is:
The Tualatin Celeron firstname.lastname@example.org (so a 256k cache Pentium 3 with 100mhz FSB) was pretty impressive, but my Pentium III-S email@example.com edged in front of the Willamette@1.4 with a smidgen more clock speed on a fairly ordinary GPU.
Actually, considering the FSB advantage of the P4, the Tualatin did really well.
You know the funny thing? That machine running Windows 2000 would put a low to middle class modern laptop running Windows 10 to absolute shame in terms of overall system responsiveness and usability.
