Re: July 22, Quad Cores
I thought bioshock, alan wake, and crysis all had multicore support.... all three of those games look awesome. so 3 titles? haha
Geez, I've never changed my mind so many times in my life... I was going to get the e6850, then changed my mind to q6600, then changed to e6750, then thought of future proof and just decided with the q6600.
I saw some charts on the e6750 and it uses MORE power than the q6600 under full load AND when idle... which shocked me... and hence I decided to go with q6600 (fyi, i was worried about the cpu consuming too much power).
EDIT: hm. I shouldn't say the CPU itself consumes more power, the computers tested had same specs except for the CPU's. So the computer in general, with different CPU's, e6750 system eats more watts!!
Use my advice at your own risk.
