Ok, so the FX-55 or whatever can be overclocked to JUST 2.8?!?!?! Come on now, Intel's well into the 3 gigs. Can't AMD pick up the pace a little?!?!
lol yeah, what lazerman said. This is how bias'd opinions form and then flames are later produced. Simply from people not being educated in something they do not know. Obviously if AMD were putting out 64bit chips that couldn't compare past 2.5GHz they'd be out of the business by now
What really needs to be said is, Intel needs to stop being marketing whores and just showing off big numbers to people who don't know what these numbers represent. That's all Intel does. "BUY IT NOW!!! 3.6GHZ HT TECHNOLOGY!!" common consumer who buys dells and hp's and prebuilts alike, where Intels main source of income comes from, don't even know that AMD exists, probably doesn't know what HT TECHNOLOGY!!! even means, and doesn't know what the latest speeds are.
AMD IMO gets mad props for creating a chip that not only compares to the Intel chips quite easily, but also does more work off of lower clock speeds.
No offense regulus, but a statement like the one both lazerman and I quoted is basically an Intel bias'd uneducated answer. Not uneducated regarding computers, but towards the variety of CPU's and manufacturers out there. If you don't really know that much about another company, or what their product is capable of, then you really can't say things like 'AMD needs to pick up the pace'
