    Anything that creates competition in the market is a good thing.

    Can someone correct me if I wrong but don't all those tests weigh number of cores heavily? So an 8core should do amazingly well in a test but real world not seeing that much of an improvement unless your app takes advantage.

    I've got the same motherboard in my newegg wish list along with a Corsair H80 and 8GB of Corsair Dominator GT DDR3 2000. If this is typlical of the results we'll see with Bulldozer I'll probably go ahead and pull the trigger.

    Why does it struggle so much with superPi? my C2Q9450 @3.2 does 1M in 15.1 seconds!
  18. Can't get here soon enough

    Simple answer:
    SuperPi uses an outmoded instruction set called x87. AMD decided against improving x87 core performance some years ago.
  20. Can't wait to upgrade my Athlon 64 X2 ;)
  21. I upgraded my 64x2 5200 to the i5 2500k! I'm impressed and have always been anti Intel since my nexgen cpu 486 build but not no more.

    ohhhh, I see. Your one of those guys that has commitment issues! hehehe

    BTW, I really am liking the UD7. I picked up a Asus Crosshair Formula V as well which is also top notch. I ended up building with the UD7 for the quad CF capabilities. It also is a extremely good Oc'er.
  23. Well Real World wise, I push my computer to the limits, using all the CPU power my CPU can muster. AMD, it's hard to, even with my quad-core 9600. Real people use the cores, it's the Windows and its Programs that doesn't use the cores to their extent. Linux sure does though =D

    Irrelevant question: I've always wondered: how come the terms 'oct-core' and 'hex-core' never caught on, but got called six-cores and eight-cores instead? Why don't we call a quad core a 'four-core'?
  25. It will run notepad but you have to upgrade you video card to at least 1gb ddr5 :) lol
