    cool, finally the compatibility of Intel (SSE3 etc) with the performance per watt of AMD. Rendering will rock on this

    @ nemesis
    in what way i am troubleshooting a hardware problem....


    anyhow guys i am not suggesting that AMD is out of the seat... but atleast there is some competition after long time

    by the time this is out amd will be on AM2 and DDR2

    Huh !!! This is Intel's New Core architecture already kicking FX60 O/C 's A** by a huge 20-28% margin in all tests.... the final product may be not so much but prolly at least will take a 10% lead in all tests... AM2 is just a socket type and those processors will retain the same architecture as X2s noww.. so no way for AMD until they come out withy ntirely new architecture/more speed!!!

    And for ur info:
    CONROE Runs @ 2.66 GHz..... Estimated cost when it comes out: $533
    Source: http://www.dailytech.com/article.aspx?newsid=787

    while AMD FX60 @ 2.8 GHz.....around $900...

    Now which one will u choose ???

    even goin by the arguements in this thread
    the lower end gamin market is still with AMD
    in India, a 50k PC is a high end thingy - ONLY for GAMERZ
    given the economic scenario
    Athlon64 3500+ is gaming proc here

    so AMD still RULES :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

    i don't think so.

    in india, if 10 PCs are sold, weather branded or assembled, 8 are Intel, the reason, cos people know Intel as the 2nd name for CPU.AMD marketing sux everywhere.

    Not only the lower end but still the higher end gaming markets in India are mostly AMD.. and that scenario is not goin to change (in India) for some time even after Conroe comes out !!!

    One fact is that the Competition must not get cold, thatz my point, with Intel's pathetic processors (compared to AMDs) over the last few years were already shifting the market in favor of AMD, and we dun wanna see another INTEL like monopoly now, do we ?? Competition slams/boosts up technological innovations... and thatz what must go on .. a REAL HOT FIGHT BETWEEN INTEL AND AMD for the performance crown....

    dun we remember tht when thr was Intel's monopoly existent, it took about 10 years to reach 1 GHz from 100 MHz, but when AMD got into the scene, Competition boosted up and that resulted in 2 GHz frm 1 GHz with ane and a half year.....

    We (at least I) dun want saturation @ ne level in the hardware scenario !!!!!

    Intel will have the crown for a short period of time IMO. Just like Pentium 4 kicked the Athlon XP till the Barton core came about (which was competitive). Then the AMD Athlon64 came out and dominated Intel. Now Intel's releasing all new architecture, Pentium 4 vs. Athlon XP revisited......

    In the end, both companies will perform almost equally. :)

    The way technology progresses, I'm thinking about an NVIDIA CPU-within-a-GPU running at 2.6GHz (16 cores running in parallel) with support PixelShader 6.0 and Vertex Shader 5.5, SSE7, 3DNow! Hardcore edition. This shall have the ability to make wormholes within the pipeline allowing it to predict what instruction is coming next, therefore preparing the CPU/GPU for it, increasing performance. The wormhole is also used to speed up performance by time shifting to the end point.

    The setup is cooled by a giant watercooling system called the IceFlowFX. :p

    Maybe for gaming but not for A/V encoding. While you're at it compare a laptop with Intel Core Duo against the best that AMD has to offer and see if you feel the same.

    Even as you make stupid statements like that, the X1900XTX continues to kick nVidia's a$$.

    It was in today's TOI as well. I came in to ask you guys what all it is about. 40% better performance at 40% lower power consumption? Cool stuff :)

    Well, it isnt gonna be much surprise with 2 chips per card drawind extremely high amounts of power (the one that the processors r trying to conserve).
    I think it is bound to happen. The next card that ATi will release will be better than the 7900 GTX and so on. It is a continuous cycle towards betterment.
    But this card is gonna be heavy on performance and on pockets. Just have a look at the specs-: http://www.dailytech.com/article.aspx?newsid=915

    Well, this has led me to believe, successor ousts the predecessor.....atleast in the hardware industry....and i m pretty sure that whatever AMD gets next is gonna be better than Conroe.

    PS: BTW, speaking of cards, ATi r planning a 1 GB gfx card by May.....this year ;)
