I fully aware that the two CPU's can't be compared... but that's my AMD to Intel story.
WHAT? You abandoned Cyrix??? How could you!!!
couldnt decide so i got both
Intel p4 1.8a and AMD 1800+
1.6A@2.6 for everyday use
5 x XP boxen to fold
I'm always a Intel Fan.....
It seems a popular move indeed! - Noise was a key factor in my decision to switch, the Northwood being an awesome overclocker was really icing on the cake.
Whoa... I just clicked your "Folding Boxen Database" link... do you really own that many PC's?
I know, I know... rest assured, I'm truly ashamed of what I did.
yes, of coz I do..
Com'n guys - get folding and show the AMD guys that Intel are better - all the top positions for fastest folding box are held by AMD!!
the only way an Intel can beat AMD in folding is get yourself a P3-S and clock them to over 1800+mhz
Oh, I don't know, folding power seems roughly exponential (?) to MHz, so as a 2GHz P4 performs like a 1GHz Athlon, if you got the Japanese crazies folding, their 4GHz P4's, if stable, could have a crack at a top spot.
Yep. AthlonXP 1600 to Celeron Tualatin 1000 at 1500. Cheaper, cooler, quieter and faster!!!
Don't tell me - show me!!
Love those Tualatins....
Considering going to Intel for the next CPU/MOBO/RAM upgrade
Not sure with the Hammer coming at the end of the year.
Went form a P3-700 rif last last year to a AMD 1700+ XP rig. The Amd system is hella noisy even with just a stock standard fan and i dont find it very stable compared to the P3 i had. I want to go back to Intel and go for a P4 2.0 Ghz but need to find a board that suits my needs..ie Raid, USB 2.0...we wait and see.
I had a duron 800 and went to a P4 1.6A... and VERY happy with it and i think i will oc it some
I've done that.
Had a Tbird 1000@1400, and now have a email@example.com
I would NEVER buy AMD again until:
They give all processors 3 years warranty.
They have heat-protection that works.
They get rid of their useless XP naming system.
They work out how to build themselves a decent chipset.
and they get some decent reliability out of their cores.
I have a Tbird @ 1.4, and just bought a P4 1.6A for a second box. Needed SSE2 so really had no choice, but oh well
im thinking of converting to a tualatin celeron.. sick of the noise and heat this amd rig generates.
my ambient temperatures soar when this thing runs all day. im sick of it. ARGH
just need to find a s370 board that has what i need and im sold.
