The simple fact of it all is, "Look at all benchmarks of all of the TOP CPU's in every class of CPU." And then tell me what you see???

Dual Core is ?
Fastest Single Core is ?
Server CPU's is ?

wheres single core processor multi tasking ?
Budget dual core ?
but amd is better anyways for now.

The RevE cores originally had problems operating at subthermal temperatures eg. -100C

What do you mean? If you bought a really, really early Venice or San Diego and tried to run it on a phase change you'd run into problems...this problem was identified really quickly and AMD fixed it nearly right away

A company that dedicates complete satisfaction to such a small consumer base like that is worthy of my business

i had a few problems with SiSandra reporting my cpu temp as >479 Degrees C, but the bios reports it at a nice toasty 42 Degrees C.

I know they gear towards the overclocking market, however, clock for clock, intel CPUs generally overclock (in terms of GHz) more than an AMD cpu, however like I said, AMD does more cycles per clock, so it all balances out.

i also heard that Intels can overclock further by increasing the bus but AMD's overclock further by increasing the multiplier, i dont know if its true though...

what about overclocking in terms of performance gain?
you know higher MHZ doesn't always = better.

and only AMD's FX-s can increase their multipliers. the normal A64's do damn well only increasing the HTT, and sometimes even LOWERING the multi in order to increase the HTT again.

I like AMD because they actually seem to care about what people want.
and because I don't like feeding money to the giants like Intel. especially hearing what the CEO is like (a real bast...)
