for performances...

More about athlon e8400 find comparison
  1. if that is the dual core athlon - e8400 wins in most if not all benchmarks.

    btw: google.
  2. dont bother 250 <8400
  3. from what I gather the intel is about 5% faster in most tests but not all , it is almost double the price tho
  4. if you can afford the e8400, i would suggest the phenom ii x4 940 black edition.

    as other says, performance wise the e8400 wins

  5. Why would you even compare the two? They aren't even in the same class/price point.

    However for a strictly performance comparison, the E8400 is better.
  6. what about this:

    http://www.anandtech.com/bench/default.aspx?p=56&p2=96

    but yeah, like flyin15sec said they arent even in the same class/price point
  7. Yes, but overclock both and that is a different story... E8400 disappears in the distance! (in short, much quicker!)
  8. yea on top of it the wolfdale also consumes a LOT less power. e8* series FTW. one of intels best chips imo!
  9. Yeah, and the E8400 is $167 and the AthlonII x2 250 is $76. Try comparing the E8400 at $167 with a PhenomII x4 945 at $170.
  10. The e8400 hundred are fast and scored like 1900 hundred at the CPU benchmark..But when I can overclock my little 70 bucked underdog AMD 250 and score 1887 something in processing ratings that tells me alot about the AMDS true to dollar per dollar contender..For 167 hell I would go for the PhenomII 945 like dirst mountain tells you and fly away from the E8400 hundred like there was no tommorow..hahahahahaa Dollar for dollar is the battle my friend and in this economy that is what wins...

    Look at the numbers and compare them yourself. That has the 250, the e8400, and a similarly priced 945.
  12. romeo asked for performance, not performance per dollar or economy or anything. And if it has nothing to do with multithreading beyond 2 cores (probably 98% of all applications and games), then it is E8400 hands down.

    While true, anyone asking that question is probably better off knowing what price/performance actually means.

    stop misgiuding innocent people you amd fan boy

    a e8400 only cost as low as 99 dollars while athlon II 250 still stay as high as $110 which offer more value? intel!!!!
  15. I'm assuming the e8400 is in USD, with large 'rebates'...and the athlon II is in $AU right? :D

    Lol what are you on cheesesubs?

    yes it is USD! and dont tell me that athlon 2 250 is cheaper than e8400

    PS: $99 USD is standard price in november 2009

    how about retailer?
  19. Cheesubs...WHAT ARE YOU ON?

    The athlon 2 250 is a much cheaper cpu than an e8400? How the hell don't you know that?

    i only knowing that microcenter and compusa sale it cheaper than athlons, also some local retailer sale it cheaper since it's an year old product and athlon 2 x2 250 is new product as these retailler do not wish to lower the price despite athlon's performance much less than e8400.

    i dont know about etailer like amazon and newegg, but as i look up on their e8400 i can tell they can control the price as e8400 is the top sell processor.(go look at it, it's the top rate right now) making it expansive will bring huge profit to these etailler as less popular product like q8200 sale as low as 109 because of low profile. so basically these info aint correct
  21. You must be mistaking the E8200 for an E8400. Microcenter sells E8200 for $99.
  22. Let's see, Compusa price for the E8400 is .......... $179.99

    Now let me check their price for the AthlonII x2 250............... hmmm $79.99
    http://www.compusa.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4695458&Sku=A79-0250

    Now how about a PhenomII x4 945 .........$174.99. WoW that's $5 cheaper then the E8400.

    It isn't hard to check prices, lrn2google
  23. cheesesubs is just a intel fanboi (oi because most intel fags are just that).

    I don't hate intel, not at all. but you can see a troll fanboi when he presents his little face and giant nose.

    on a serious note. $76 dollars for a cpu that is only 5% worse than something that is $180 dollars, I would have to be a complete moron to spend 100 dollars for only 5% more power......

    As others have said op, if your willing to spend 180 on an intel, spend 180 on an amd, and I guarantee, the AMD is better. But if money doesn't matter, get a i7 lol
