    Wasn't the first revisions of the i series chips a lot more power hungry then the current versions?

    Yes, it even ate more power than an FX-8150.
    But at that point in time, nothing could rival its processing power.
    Move to this year, SB parts with lower power consumption are already around for a year and an FX-8150 doesn't really trump an i7-2600K with its power consumption.
    That's why most people consider it as quite bad.

    Well i like my new toy regardless of power.
    Intel has what? 1000 times more money and resources. For AMD to still be in existence today is pretty dam good. Considering all the underhanded crap Intel did to try and put them out of business.

    I have a question, have anyone with a BD tried to undervolt them? maybe that would lower the TDP and make them less power hungry, How much OC you can reach without changing the volts?

    Actually, I used the same dvd-rom drive for several years....in fact, from 2002 or so until 2008 when it was replaced by a blu-ray drive. Hell, my dad used the same computer (except PSU) from 2001 until 2008. Hell, I still have my old Rage Pro card, GeForce FX5700LE....GeForce 6200 (from 2005).... They're not in my computer, but I still own them and they still function. My blu-ray drive will be getting replaced or removed soon as it causes boot issues (known problem with AHCI mode). Aside from DVD/CD-RW drives, I don't tend to use components that are out of warranty. BUT, the average consumer does in fact keep computers until they fail or lose their usefulness.

    Granted, I also keep a few older computers around for menial (read: Internet and Word) duties, but it is not something you would consider when buying a high end CPU if it will be around in 8 years.

    And CD/DVD drives don't count :p

    My dad's last computer had the fastest sckt 478 P4 available at the time of purchase....and was purchased with the intention of keeping it as long as possible. The only reason it was replaced was due to motherboard failure and lack of available, reasonably priced replacements. The only motherboard I could find for it was over $400USD....his current computer was less than $400USD.

    Really? I have seen Skt 478 boards with DDR2 667 and picxpressx16 supporting all SKT 478 p4 for $69 USD before.

    I'd honestly buy one to just play with if I had extra money lying around, would be fun :)

    The right hand doesn't know what the left hand did.
    I guess everything is fine as long as it's the underdog, right?

    Posting fudged up benchmark isn't as damaging as say Intel bullying OEMs to not incorporate AMD products or delay the launch sufficiently to make them not viable or else they lose volume discounts and what not?

    That's more damaging and under handed than fudging up performance numbers. We all know manufacturers tend to overexaggerate performance numbers.

    The computer was assembled by HP....I was told to either find an HP motherboard or scrap the computer. The ONLY compatible board available was in excess of $400USD, was refurbished and had a $350 "core" charge on it.

    Or....just delay a huge shipment of Xeon processors for several server clusters.....kinda like what Intel did to Compaq shortly before they went bankrupt....

    wait. didnt intel end up paying amd like $2billion to settle some antitrust dispute? i remember reading about it a couple years ago. of course intel still denies any wrong doing. imo, i think it would be in everyones best intrest if intel was forced to divest. its not really that serious over here , but intel pretty much as full control on the overseas market.

    Intel paid that yes and renewed the cross-license agreement and that AMD doesn't have to pay royalty to Intel for x86. In exchange, AMD was to drop all lawsuits pertaining this issue and not have the European Commission on Intel's ass for it.

    The $2billion USD that Intel paid to AMD was only a fraction of the damage Intel's illegal marketing did to AMD....or companies that refused to bow down to Intel...
