AMD Breaks world record

Quote:
AMD yesterday announced the Dragon platform quad-core processor 3.2GHz Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition. Aimed at gamers and computing enthusiasts, the 3.2GHz Phenom II X4 955 BE will compete with the Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550. AMD boasts that their X4 955 BE is capable of running up to 7GHz under extreme cooling conditions.

Brent Barry, an AMD product manager, said that AMD was able to more than double the CPU's speed during tests. He further added that Liquid Helium was potent enough to cool the system below -240 degree Celsius than Liquid Nitrogen, which manages to cool down till -140 degree Celsius

"Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550" why are they competing with an already outdated processor? I understand that it is fast and recordbreaking, but how many average users have extreme cooling solutions? I'm just saying AMD needs to pick up the pace. I did like the vid however, I didnt know that those huge canisters of H2(L) only lasted 90min. Is 3DMark05 more cpu intensive? Just curious cause they didnt mention what graphic cards they were using or much else than the CPU.

Intel is a powerful company that has huge budgets and massive R&D. It is and will be difficult for AMD to best them.

The 955's are aimed at the Q9550 in pricing and market share. I am a fan of AMD and use them over Intel, but bottom line is still that the 955 falls behind the I7.

Since I really do not care about benchmarks or applications, I am a gamer, I am OK with this as the 955 in early test results for games keeps up with the I7 just fine.

Granted I would love to have the encoding speed of the I7 but I really do very little of this so again I am sticking with AMD. For what I do, games, the AMD saves me a couple of hundred dollars on overall platform which I use on the video card budget.

So dollar for dollar I am better off with AMD, if I did more application work on my system Intel would be the choice.

Just my 2 cents, my 955 arrives Tuesday! Same day of the "official" RC from M$, man that is going to be a fun day!!

PS, can't wait to see how far I can overclock on air...

I'm no Gordon Moore, but I don't think it had much to do with the number of cores. Mainly on how the internal structure of each core works.

6.7ghz....... that is a HUGE OC

but if you were to chuck a x30 multi on a 9550, get ready for 10ghz....

Naw. AMD's only fighting the battles it can/will win. Competing against the i7 is suicide, for now at least.
