Re: Intel smashes Ryzen

that's cause someone said how much of a difference amd did. well.. they sell 50% more cores for about 500% more price. (amazon prices without tax don't count outside usa) Dude. Really. You have to know this is false. If you insist on the "AMD is 50% more expensive" argument then at least have the …

Re: Intel smashes Ryzen

zen 6 cores is still way more expensive than regular intel 4 cores :) Core i3-10100F 4 cores- about 100 $ AMD Ryzen 5 5600X 6 cores - about 500 $ No. That isn't remotely close. Ryzen 5600 is selling NOW for $379 on Amazon. Ryzen 3600 is selling now for $199 on Amazon Ryzen 2600 if you hunt can be …

Re: Intel smashes Ryzen

Well I am glad that Intel is trying to compete at every given price point. Competition is good for all of us, a monopoly is not. I for one couldn't care less about SATA AHCI drivers. My OS is on a nVME drive, my data drives are SATA, and they all work just fine. I had a R7 1700, and now have a R7 …

Re: Intel smashes Ryzen

@mockingbird: AMD has some severe ups and downs. I was extremely happy with my Athlon XP and Athlon 64 back in the day. But their Phenom processors shit the bed so horribly, I didn't even think about AMD as a purchasing option until the goodwill towards the Ryzen 3's became too overwhelming to …

Re: Intel smashes Ryzen

Furthermore, the only way Rocket Lake will overtake Ryzen 5000 on IPC is by pure clock speed. Even with their IPC improvements they are still going to be 3-4% behind AMD clock to clock. Now thats still a impressive jump, but if they can only maintain 5.3ghz on one core for 60 seconds at a time....im …

Re: Intel smashes Ryzen

just amd sells their doubled cores at the price of xeons If you are talking about Threadripper...then no they don't. They are roughly equivalent to Intel's HEDT sku's , at least as far as price is concerned. They "smash" the hell out of Intel's HEDT platform in every other metric, speed, power …

Re: Intel smashes Ryzen

I don't trust Intel's marketing slides...and even IF i did how much power and heat will these things put out? How much will they cost? AMD can double the core count in ten seconds and be back on top in a jiffy if necessary. Intel is floundering until they get on a modern process. No one wants …

Re: What modern activity did you get up to today?

I was reading Ryzen 5000 reviews this morning when I should've been doing actual work. Holy smoke! They actually managed to take back the low-res gaming crown, all while running at lower clocks than Intel and using less power. As crazy as this might sound, I'm seriously thinking of selling my "old" …

Re: What modern activity did you get up to today?

I'm running a 3700x on a b350 board, having been a early adopter I was previously running a 1700. The 3700x was a major upgrade but I'm at the end of the road for this board. No real need to upgrade yet unless I also upgrade my GPU. It's a Vega 56 and I might opt in for a 6000 series GPU but unsure …
