Windows 7: AMD Breaks world record

29 Apr 2009   #21

 
 

I'm sorry, but AMD is just really... out of it. They and ATI both. Not only is AMD more concerned with breaking a world record (hence, being the "first to do something") but ATI uses GDDR 5 graphics memory... really?!!!! Totally unnecessary. It astounds me that Nvidia's GTX series blows these supposedly "awesome" GDDR 5 chips out of the water, just as much as it astounds me that Intel's Core i7 can blow the latest AMD fiasco out of the water. For me, my Core 2 Duo overclocked to 2.97 from 2.4 is incredible. No problems, no... noticeable anything. The last time I had an AMD, I had to take the tower into Computer Renaissance (now bankrupt) and have them fix it up on more than one occasion.

Out of it? I think we should all be happy they're here and fighting back because they're the only ones stopping prices from shooting through the roof.

Okay, good point. Stay there, AMD! I like affordable Intel CPUs.

HA! you said affordable... hardly. You know how much it costs them to make these things? Intel is getting us good, always has been. But I still like their processors more than AMD... sort of luxury tax.

But for the first time in my life I purchased a i7 920 (a processor) that cost less than the motherboard i put it in (an evga x58). Explain to me where that came from? $300 motherboard sheesh... hope its nice.
