Guys,,

A small experience in order to show my Little or youngest cousin wants to know why I bought i7 for such amount and also what is this PhysX Symbol on my Video card sticker..... He asked me, is it really worth to spend that much.. (He doesn't really not in that knowledge of hardware... so i showed him this small example)

After long time, he came this republic day to my room in order to play games and watch movies with us.. And also wanted to Buy NEW RIG for himself.....

I know i shouldn't compare these two at any rate.. But I wanted to show him how much difference will be there between Budget and High-End system.

System Setup:

i7 Rig [see my Sig]

AMD Athlon X4 635
Sata HDD Raid 0( 160x2)
Gigabyte 740G Chipset
Geforce 8800GTS 640 MB (5 Years,still running ROCK SOLID)
Corsair Dominator 4GB 1333
Antec 450 Watts (6 Years,still running ROCK SOLID)
Windows 7 64Bit
(Internet Downloading Purpose i use this system and sometimes file extractions)....


First:
Winrar Extraction of BluRay Rip of 720pMovie which is 4.3GB. Each individual file is 1GB....

Let Video do the talking...... Let side rar Window is i7 and right side is AMD . No Overclocking for now, i wanted him to show raw power only...
[Reduce your system Volume, Rock music is goin play when i7 does the extraction :p]




Second:
Mafia II

Small clip and observe the car explosions and particles response.. It's all PhysX.... Don't mind the video jerk ,it's my software fault...... Game runs butter smooth.. I didn't have any time to do it properly becoz when i showed that Game...He's really not giving system back to me and playing since morning....My Holiday wasted :x

Re: My i7 and AMD Athlon

of course. you can't compare a high end product with low end produce (not just in processor, in any area).

and thanks for those videos.

Thanks mate.... It's just I wanted to share this small videos... Actually my AMD is very good one for its price and it's quite competitive with i5 650 cousin system...

I want other i7 owners here to compare their rar extraction times with mine....
