About the AMD 8150FX (Bulldozer) 8 core CPU

First of I would like to clear up the speculation of the Intel chipsets being better with the fact that all "Intel Fanboys" seem to be backing up there excuses with such things as "Look at the reviews and the benchmarks"

If incase your one of these "idiots" suggesting benchmarks...

A. Current Benchmarks are build with quad core CPU's in mind.

B. As a current retired Android rom/kernel developer I say benchmarks are inaccurate.

C. These reviews are from people with Intel based pc's and laptop's.

Now down to buisness, the 8150FX has 8 cores, with the feature to disable a few and in turn disabling 6 cores in his particular model beat the world record at 7.3GHz OC. Also with just 4 cores in use it smashes competition from Intel, don't suppose anyone else but me tried this without "using out of the box testing" which is also another reason why it boasts 8 UNLOCKED cores.

Do not hate on me for any reason as I have held many Intel pc's with i5 / i7's though the company are just as hungry for money than Apple I still used them. Ever bought an Intel PC with under 4GB RAM ? And you get AMD with 8 or 16GB not mentioning the extra cost of Intel CPU's. Were talking high end from both companies here !

Now just as Apple currently own the top, Android have a much more advanced project underway that utilizes much longer and more accurate sentences and a bigger database than "SIRI" also considering that android have more power already as long as Apple don't try and sue Android again !

Same be the case for AMD, there actually more ahead of Intel than you think and those fired from AMD actually were working for Intel and got a huge fine which no doubt Intel paid off anyway.

So, multi-core CPU's are really the way to go if you know what your doing and want the best of both worlds in gaming and much much higher multitasking than any other PC and soon SUPER PC's !

The new 16 Core CPU's are soon hitting for those immense multitasks although i think that 8 cores is more than enough as i have no idea what more i could personally need as my current system is as follows.

Current rig:

T900 Black Gaming Case
AMD 8150FX (8 unlocked cores)
AMD HD Radeon 6450 (1GB)
Nvidea GeForce 8800GTX (768mb)
ASUS AM3+ Motherboard (M5A97)
16GB Kingston Hyper-X Genesis Dual DDR3 (1600Mhz)
80GB Intel 320 Series SSD (+2 extra slots for later added storage)
Dual Layer DVD writer
52 in 1 memory card reader
450W Quiet Dual Rail PSU (with 120mm Fan)
Super quiet tripple copper heatpipe AMD cpu cooler
NZXT Sentry II Fan controller (with 5x 120mm Fan's)
7.1 High Defnition Audio
1GB LAN + Wireless 300Mbps
8x USB 2.0 Ports
Windows 7 Professional 64Bit
Logitech Wireless Keyboard and Mouse
Logitech 5.1 Surround sound with bass
Logic 32" HDTV

ALL THIS (excluding my TV and Speaker's which cost me £550) cost under £800 custom built !!!!

Very bad idea to write like this...

Much worse now you have just replied and included a copy of my post, some people aye, and was not even relevant to my topic !

You're a funny guy.
February 2, 2012 9:13:17 AM

And was that sarcasm, because its very hard to tell in text, just stating some facts here that's all. I must say Intel are a solid performer but AMD also are meaning they both beat each other in most instances.

@ujaansona and people who might post in this thread:
always ignore the trolls.
this seems to be the latest in the bulldozer publicity posts. you might come across more of these in the future....
i would, however, point out that OP's rig seems unbalanced. if it is for basic use, the cpu, ram are overkill. if it's for gaming, the gfx power and motherboard are inadequate and the cpu would need to be overclocked. if it's for enthusiast (overclocking, tweaking and stuff) use, the psu is weak, cooler and motherboard could be improved.
February 2, 2012 9:30:19 AM

The cpu and ram are not overkill, i use massive multitasking and i sometimes lower the cores when gaming. The GFX power I must say is crap, i plan on upgrading later however my current 8800GTX plays everything I need, especially since i seem to use 720P a lot on maxed settings, the psu for a non sli motherboard is fine thou i have looked at upgrading and transfering my components with specialist help from next door who happens to build pc's for a living, cooler with 6 fans and heatpipe is fine for just a little overclock.

But all in all nice reply, its future proof for updatability I believe, otherwise state me corrected ?

At the end of the day most people choose intels CPU's for games, which are bottlenecked by AMD's latest chips, that's a fact. Perhaps this is due to consoles having few cores and the abundance of ports to pc, or perhaps it's simply hard to optimise a video game to use many cores, but either way I wouldn't invest in a technology that will gimp my powerful GPU.

"8 cores" "Smashes competition" "16 cores"

I haven't laughed so hard.... :lol: 
February 2, 2012 9:50:24 AM

? I mentioned that a 16 core architecture was in place to being released, also i just ordered a newer motherboard M5A99X and a newer power supply of 600w quad rail !

And i said with just 4 of the 8 cores enabled the 8150FX actually dominates !

Why are you attempting to twist words ?

It has to have 8 cores to begin with.

I am just waiting for you to show us where that improves the per core IPC by turning off Bulldozer modules.

Yes, in fact Intel make more CPU's with gamer needs although for a PC like mine it comes no were near the performance of a multitasking guru or someone that plays GTA4 or later games that will introduce more CPU cores, I am much happier than i would be with an Intel CPU however i still use some Intel products such as my SSD drive :)

Let me guess, you found your stats from benchmarks right ?

I found mine when it says by disabling cores you increase the multiplier and so performance increased hugely, especially since i have 16GB RAM which just obliterates any games i play however my crap GPU (Graphics cards not cpu) bottleneck the performance of visual games.

Not even the micro architecture engineers at AMD stumbled across your solution to making dozing bull faster.
