Is it just me or is Squall as bad as tuanming who was trying to convince everyone that Core i7 was the second coming of Jesus?
Jejeje... No, squall is a pretty OK dude (he??\she??\internetz person???) ... Its just that he's sometimes a little b*i*t*c*h*y... mostly when he knows (or thinks) he's right about something, and anybody tries to second guess him...

lol

no, i've just seen the super pi rates between these 2 and clocks = zilch. the AMD line just lacks the optimised and updated extensions.


also, if thats a overclock record, then what is this? http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=556849

you'd be wrong. the Core i7's increase the performance of multigpu configs.

Its about performance per clock. Not the overclock when doing a fight between two different types of CPU.
QFFT. Yes, overclocking capability plays a significant factor for most of us when building a new PC, but it's not the end all be all. It really comes down to just value. Too many have I seen not spend enough to suit their needs, and too many I've seen spend too much for their needs.

Like I said before, if you want to spend the money for an i7 and pump out a few unnoticable (if any at all) difference in FPS, go right ahead. You do that while I spend the money saved towards something else :)

And don't misunderstand, I'm not saying the i7 is bad. It just isn't worth the cost for the vast majority of PC owners out there. Even a regular gamer like myself doesn't need more then my current rig to enjoy todays mainstream titles.

Well. This 6.89 and 7ghz AMD dosnt make a bit of difference in the world anyway. In realistic terms past a certain point it dosnt make much of a difference. And the fact that they went through 200 liters of liquid nitrogen and 3 days of testing and setting just to get that high dosnt help the average user :lol:
