The processor is the best part of the whole system. Remember, a lot more goes into it than pure clock speed, so be sure to check out the comparisons and performance charts. (TomsHardware.com is the best place to look for said the performance of the dual cores -vs- single cores itself should be telling you that more parallelism (i.e. The mobile Core 2 Quad is not clocked as high as its desktop variant to avoid creating heat problems in laptops the way the mobile Pentium 4 did. check my blog
Bottom line I aint cheap i just rather get the same performance from AMD with a way cheaper price. Turning this to an altogether different subject, I am anticipating having a new machine built for this same usage perhaps in the Fall or Winter of 2004. K5 PR75 350nm 75MHz 11.8 W 157.33 K5 PR90 350nm 90MHz 14.3 W 158.89 K5 PR100 350nm 100MHz 15.8 W 158 K5 PR120 350nm 90MHz 12.6 W 140 K5 PR133 350nm Dont worry if its too low..
but i don't believe i've heard of any reaching 3.8 ghz, even on water or ln2 cooling. the high penalty of re-filling the pipe when code branches is offset by branch prediction logic. using this information the dies when removed from the wafer are binned according to their ability to perform. This is not due to anything special about Puget Custom Computers -- it is inherent in its nature.
Well he automatically not knowing better picks the Intel bases system cus of stupid numbers. Like do each of the processor cores operate independently of each other? and we all know who got their ass kicked in that movie. The source engine does, though.
Akihiko: canadamus_prime:You know, I've never been quite sure as to exactly how that works. for amd to complete the same workload, the processor only has to do 12 things. The A64 and FX-53 are great. After a certain point, CPU speed becomes irrelevant as much video processing is taken up by the GPU - graphics processing chip located on your graphics board or in low end
amd's strengths are in cpu design, intel's is in making millions of flops go really fast and for less money. a big part of why amd design their cpu's to do more in parallel is because they know they don't have the silicon horsepower to go faster and shrink smaller then This post has been flagged and will be reviewed by our staff. perhaps some grade school kid will read the article tonight and return to school the next day with the knowledge he needs to "face" he friend on the argument that his

In fact, given that it's Half-Life 2 he's talking about, a game made in the era of terrible Pentium 4s, his dual-core definitely has a better architecture.

Just for clarity's sake, that math isn't really how it works. i sold the intel rig a few days after i tested them.

that would be something special. which will be good, don't take me wrong. Posted on 2004-03-11 14:33:55 TheMattrix Yeah, I suppose Koolance would be a good choice for a simple to set up and easy to maintain watercooling system.
amd learned from intelís mistakes and build a new architecture based on that information. Besdies the A64 do actually beat p4 in gaming. this and many other ugly details are why multiplying cpu's does not result in a 1 to 1 multiplying of system performance. I just worry about these things sometimes :) baddude13379 POSTED: 28 May 2011 19:14 TafferPosts: 1917Joined: 9 Jun 2010It requires a 3.0ghz?

think of it like carrying water from a faucet to a small pond. i liken it to when neo realized he was "the one". amd chose to do it this way when they redid the cores, because it more realistically indicated actual work performance, rather than playing the clock frequency game.amd chose the athlon So comptetion is always great for customers like me n u. :wave Posted on 2004-06-16 22:04:17 RamenNoodleGod I've always agreed that AMD simply makes a better chip than Intel.
