Ya i never understood the whole fanboi phenomenon(pun intended). My first pc was an amd, 2nd was an amd, this last one is intel. I go where the price/performance is, i dont see how people can just be sheep and stick with one company and badmoth another for no reason.

i agree. my first 2 pc's were AMD, and this past one was intel. When i begin to build my next computer (hopefully in jan) i'll be looking at whoever gives me the most for my money whether it be Intel or AMD.

And I've been thinking this for awhile, this TLB thing should have been spotted long before Phenom was presented publicly and certainly shows that AMD is not on top of things. Let's hope the new revision fixes everything.

So wait. The bug causes better performance??? Does it cause the chip to stop working or crash whats the problem?

the bug can cause the system to crash when all 4 cores are under a heavy load.
the bios patch reduces performance, at the cost of eliminating (supposedly) the risk of the errata crashing the system.
anyone buying a phenom before the new revision is silly. its not the fact that the bug will definitely cause a system crash, it may not. its the fact that it could happen.
interesting article, gurusan.

? why. I've had both ATI and Nvidia cards and have loved them all.

Just waiting for some more cash for either a 8800GT or 3870....because I miss running everything on max + full AA and AF.
