8-Core AMD, a little disappointed
Hello all! I just have a quick question about the new AMD FX 8-core processors.
I'm hosting a DNSBL (DNS Blacklist) server for mailer [dot] mobi and for a server
I'm finding the CPU more than adequate. It runs all of the server processors ok,
but for normal desktop stuff it just feels a little slow. I'm comparing it (a
3.2 GHz 8-Core AMD) to my lappy which is an Intel Core-i7 1.8 GHz. The laptop
feels significantly faster. It's strange. Has anyone else had similar experiences
with the AMD CPU's? Is there anything I need to do to configure it better?
Many thanks in advance!
