  1. Re: Saturday August 9 10:00 AM ET - Virtual LAN party #7

    I'll probably drop in. Would love to play the new GRID Autosport. Too bad DiRT 2 still hasn't been imported to Steamworks...
  2. Re: what was You favorite old school AMD motherboard ?

    The Asus K8V Deluxe was a really good mobo for the time. For such a new gen of chips, it was extremely solid.
  3. Re: Tim Sweeney/others question value of AMDs hUMA in APUs

    Meh, vr-zone sorta sensationalized this one.

    Tim's main beef (and it is a good one) is that hUMA is still non-trivial to implement in code. The issue is software support with coding tools. Using...
  4. Re: AMD gives up making "big" CPUs, 9590 their farewell to high end

    Oh my gosh, all I see are walls of text. You guys are awful sensitive.

    As for AMD optimizations in consoles... hard to say. They are Jaguar based cores and most of AMD's desktop and notebook...
  5. Re: AMD gives up making "big" CPUs, 9590 their farewell to high end

    I wouldn't say developers are lazy... sure, they may not put in the work to make workloads more parallel... but we also must ask if it makes sense to make some of these workloads more parallel? Some...
  6. Re: AMD gives up making "big" CPUs, 9590 their farewell to high end

    CPUs are about at the end of what they can do in terms of IPC and parallelism. Yes, they will keep increasing clockspeeds, but I think we are going to see a slowdown on increasing core counts. ...

    Re: Tonight I hit 5 ghz and beyond....

    The FX 8350 I just installed is just putting along at 4.3/4.5 Turbo without any voltage increases. Using that Antec Kuhler 620 and temps are reasonable... but I haven't really stressed it yet.
  8. Re: AMD gives up making "big" CPUs, 9590 their farewell to high end

    AFAIK, Iris Pro has not made it to the desktop yet. I believe that it will show up first in Apple products? I could be wrong, have they already updated their range of products to reflect Iris Pro? ...

  10. Re: AMD gives up making "big" CPUs, 9590 their farewell to high end

    If there was one really interesting thing about the Tom's Hardware article showing performance through from the Athlon II through the FX 6350, it was that AMD has been consistently improving upon...

    Re: New build, 3570 or 4570 i5?

    Splurge for 1866 memory... can't remember offhand how fast the Intel memory controller goes. Could be wrong, but I know my test machine here does utilize 1866 speeds with the 3770K.

    Re: New build, 3570 or 4570 i5?

    Definitely go for the updated mobo.
  13. Re: AMD gives up making "big" CPUs, 9590 their farewell to high end

    Lol, in reply to a question many pages ago about what Z87 board I was interested in... I guess my quick (and nearly uninformed) answer would be the Asus Sabertooth Z87. I have used some of the other...

    Wow, I don't look at the forums for one day...
  15. Re: AMD gives up making "big" CPUs, 9590 their farewell to high end

    Eh, we are getting to the point where fast chips that handle many, many threads are becoming commodity items. I wouldn't call someone who bought a FX 8350 or 6350 for gaming is getting cheated out...

    Re: The challenge....

    Just for clarification where I am coming from, my gaming machine is actually AMD based. It is a X6 1100T OCd to 3.8 GHz on all 6 cores. 2 x 4 GB DDR-1866 running at around 1650 or so. Have a GTX...
  17. Re: AMD gives up making "big" CPUs, 9590 their farewell to high end

    The big push with Kaveri is the full HSA implementation. Current Trinity/Richland/Kabini do not feature the full HSA feature set. The biggest advance here is the shared memory space and addresses. ...
  18. Re: AMD gives up making "big" CPUs, 9590 their farewell to high end

    I wouldn't say that we will be "stuck" with APUs. I actually like the idea of APUs and believe that heterogeneous computing has some real merits. So, let's say we have a 4 module 20 nm next gen...

    Re: The challenge....

    Haha, I'm getting drug into an argument!

    Ivy Bridge and Haswell make buying AMD for a gaming machine a tough argument. Yeah, you can get some good parts that do fine in gaming and a wide variety...
  20. Re: AMD gives up making "big" CPUs, 9590 their farewell to high end

    AM3+ has been a dead end for years, but AMD hasn't fessed up to it even yet. They really meant it when they said "the future is fusion". Not sure why AMD has not pulled the plug yet on AM3+, as...

    Re: New Video card or New system?

    Eh, 6350 and 8350 both do good for gaming, especially considering the price (and the near constant sales on the parts one place or the other). The glaring weak spot for these chips anymore has got...

    Re: New Video card or New system?

    Yeah, time to get a new machine. You can pick something up much faster for around $600 to $700 at a minimum.

    Re: GPU recommendation for 3 monitors

    You don't have to use two ports for that monitor. Each DVI port is Dual Link, so it can drive 2560x1600. Throw in the powered displayport to dual link DVI, that is a third monitor.

    Re: GPU recommendation for 3 monitors

    The GTX 600 and 700 series usually have 2 x DL DVI outputs, but you would need to get one of those $100 active DP to DL-DVI adapters to get three screens running at that resolution. For AMD cards...
