  2. SO if the HD3000 graphics are barley adequate for low end gaming, and the new part is, *at most* 60% better, then how the hell does it do 4k x4k.
    And of course Intel is going to swat the AMD fly, its smaller shares of a smaller pie for both from now on. Unless they get in the mobile market, all growth has been sucked out of the mainstream Pc market. Beware ! The SUN rises in the East More power to your L-Bow.

    Z! LOL! Seriously, though, I appreciate your straight forward opinion and information because even though you are an Intel guy you'll give it straight without any sugar coating. In other words, if Intel has weaknesses and issues you'll say so and if AMD has some virtues you'll say so.

    @Route44
    Cheers for the thoughts.
    I have owned AMD platforms in the past, but since Core 2 I've been exclusively Intel ( tho' I do build AMD rigs for customers).
    I've worked in two of the three best kitchens in my country. Chefs stand or fall on their ability to deliver on the (menu) promise and to meet, or excel, the level of their last service. Prevarications, proviso's, excuses and extentuating circumstances have no place in a pro kitchen.....When I see them wheeled out in other businesses I tend to give them the same short shrift. I own no stock in any company, nor any have any personal allegiences to a brand. For me it's all about following through. As the saying goes; "Talk is cheap".
  5. More than half of AMD fanboys are cheapskates that can't be bothered with buying a new motherboard when they buy a new CPU. Isn't that the opposite of an enthusiast? If so, why does anyone care about what they have to say about anything?


    Fanboy = the ridiculous ability to ignore a better product.

    That's it. Hide behind "Guest" setting. Troll somewhere else as you let mommy and daddy buy your parts for you; you haven't a clue. And while we are at it I have heard from many Intel fanboys complain loud and long about Intel always releasing new sockets.

    Using your formula: Fanboy = Buying whatever Intel tells me to because they are my god even if it means my newest socket isn't even a year old.

    And as I said earlier I run both Intel and AMD so no fanboism here. In fact I have two brand new Intel systems in the house now.
  7. I'm running AMD atm (fanboy alert!!!)

    No really, I'm running AMD because when I built my pc, I had to pay it all by myself.

    At an age of 16 it isn't easy to built a decent pc because of a tight budget and with the budget I had I couldn't get what I wanted (dam those things aren't cheap)

    But now I'm 17 and working (weekend work) so my budget is a bit more higher so I'm waiting for the releases of the fx series and when those suck, I probably make the transition to Intel. If they don't suck (don't have to be the best of the best => why would I build a overkill pc?)

    All what matters is price/Quality ratio => you pay for what you get, BUT sometimes you want to keep it as cheap as possible (without loosing to much performances)


    and atm my amd rig is doing his job great (I'm a student applied informatics so it's being used for programming and sometimes for photoshop projects.

    btw my laptop is Intel ;) => had some problems with sucky amd laptop cpu's so never again




    If there are errors is this text => don't shoot me , english isn't my native language.
