The AMD K7 processors (including Duron) have always ran hotter than the Intel processors. Plus they had ineffecient cooling solutions(on the original Athlons there were visible gaps between the cache heatsinks and the cache chips).

The p4 clock throttling method when heat is excessive is indeed impressive, and it's obvious AMD's solution to prevent their chips cooking with a thermal diode in the palomino core cannot cope with complete heatsink loss. It can cope with more gradual heat buildup, in the case of a fan failing though.

But then, if you can't fit a heatsink properly you shouldn't be attempting to do it in the first place. The other conceivable cause of complete heatsink loss would be the plastic lugs snapping off the socket, which is quite rare unless you have a heavy copper cooler fitted. In which case, you'd know about it and be careful not to move the case around much without removing it.

I made the above post before reading the article, but i had seen the video. The article pretty much repeats exactly what i said though.

The person who test this AMD bun, I bet a complete MORON.

The same thing goes to Intel Processor.

Let say If you overclock an Intel Pentium 3 500 to 1GHz with the standard heatsink+fan from the package and run Prime95 for 10 hours...

That Intel would sure go to Hell too.

this AMD Burn thingy is too OLD. Today AMD Users are more wise treating their overcloked/not overclocked AMD processors. with good Cooleing system (specially Water Cooling).

I hink this is just a Marketing strategies, to convince newbies outthere, to buy Intel.

Intel fools people to buy slow Processors, with loads of bucks. They afraid losing Market. that's about it.
It's all about dirty marketing.

I dunno bout that 404, i think doctor tom has always tried to be very fair in his reviews:D

I dont think they are marketing strategies either, it just shows that AMD could do better in providing better thermal protection for their CPUS.:D

heh heh,

i never like dr tom. For tech news, i go to Anandtech. but people have choices you know...

Yes, the minus about AMD processor today is their lack of Thermal Protection. But I'm sure the next gen of palomino/Sledge Hammer will provide this.

Yeah, provided the CPU even runs at that speed. From my experience with overclocking when a CPU reaches a certain limit it just doesn't work. The system just hangs at the BIOS boot screen or it hangs loading Windows. I don't know if the CPU still runs during that time though.

Burning an Intel processor is hard work and I never succeeded. I tried with my previous Celeron (o/c from 366 to 495) system for over a year but it still works perfectly fine, even after dozens of heat-related crashes and problems. My Pentium system was also seriously overheated but it still works well.

AMD Getting stronger everyday.

When people still count on Intel processors for their Servers, they refuses to use AMD based one.

Today, with Athlon MP, AMD starts to take the throne from intel. More and more websites today count on their sites on an AMD processor based Servers. - The Ctrl Alt Del, M3dZone, Anandtech, etc... -

Athlon MP + Linux
more: AMD's 1.4GHz Athlon MP drips into channel

go AMD go! :D
