Should I Dump AMD?

I need sound and all the HD gubbings over HDMI for blu-ray and Spotify etc. The problem is AMD has only about 20% total market share in CPUs at best, and even fewer of those are 8 core FX CPUs. All times are GMT -5. qwertyKDec 11, 2015, 12:38 PM king3pj said: Anonymous said: Supernova1138 said: Anonymous said: Because most game devs cant code a game that use all 8 cores.

My System Specs You need to have JavaScript enabled so that you can use this ... So when AMD was charging $1K for their top performance chips and were priced equal to or higher than Intel did you love them then? They gotta go back to computer engineering school and learn a method to code something that use amd cpu to its full potential. Its an ageing chip, and will struggle to keep up with upcoming games and software. http://www.nasdaq.com/article/why-you-should-dump-advanced-micro-devices-cm653028

Please type your message and try again. still. qwertyKDec 11, 2015, 10:14 AM Yes, but it will not be as much as it would be with an old i7.

  1. Either direction you take, you will be buying a new motherboard for your upgrade.
  2. Having terrible trouble with on-board video using an AMD processor.
  3. You won't really have any bottleneck with a 970.

  6. Both are better than 4th gen if you are willing to pay the premium.
  7. Of course the 5820K is going to smash the FX!
  8. Intel has not been improving their cpus as much as they used to and they have been over charging their cpus lately precisely because AMD is sinking.
  9. It is driver related.
  10. qwertyKDec 11, 2015, 12:27 PM Now, with Zen AMD claims to be offering better single core performance.

The new console generation has maybe given developers more incentive to improve multithreading given that the PS4 and Xbone have 8 really anemic CPU cores, but that doesn't seem to have If AMD was the CPU market leader and chose to completely gut their single threaded performance to cram more cores onto their CPU, then developers would have incentive to improve multithreading Fallout 4 is one of them. Remember Me?

It is time for an upgrade. Posted in ... You won't really have any bottleneck with a 970. https://www.reddit.com/r/stocks/comments/4qnawo/should_i_dump_my_amd_stock/ They gotta go back to computer engineering school and learn a method to code something that use amd cpu to its full potential.

When i played overwatch i noticed that it was running on intel HD 3000 gpu, it was written in graphic options. Developers are going to target the larger market, and aren't going to put in the time or resources to make their game run better for the 5% of the market that It might be better in that it's a decent upgrade but if you're upgrading to an FX, you might as well keep the i7-860. While AMD do offer lower prices, even me, an AMD fanboy, will admit Intel CPUs do perform a bit better.

I'd get an FX6300 or another FX CPU like an 8350 or 4350 and pair that with a 970. click resources The time now is 19:37. Jlg823Dec 11, 2015, 9:26 AM Jenish_J said: I'm using i7 860 @ 2.8 Ghz on intel whitesburg dp55wb motherboard for 6yrs. DDR3 1066 or 1333.

Lag is insane. Once they have outcompete the major competitors, they can neglect and limit the unprofitable lower end chips and make top ones and overcharge for bigger profits. Better cpus wont do amd any good if consumers still stick to intel despite higher prices and lower performance. Moreover, the RX 480 has been designed to draw a maximum of 75W from PCIe slot, but many cards drew up to 90W from PCIe slot.

I'm not going to give AMD my money just because they are they little guy if they haven't earned it. Until then, I'm all AMD. Ask ! This tool uses JavaScript and much of it will not work correctly without it enabled.

You might benefit from getting new RAM at this point, as if it's a six year old system, you probably do have slower DDR3, eg. A FX 8350 costs £140. The PC gaming and self build market has grown exponentially in the last few years, but compared to the average PC user, they just don't care as much as we do.

You won't really have any bottleneck with a 970.

solved Which H270 motherboard should I choose? Zen isn't going to be out until the end of next year, and we have no indication about how it's going to perform. The *ONLY* reason that AMD FX is still relevant is because they're cheap. In some games, 8350, even a 8320 will matched i5.

I would recommend the new skylake line up or the devil canyon processors like the i5-4690k and i7-4790k Related Resources solved Should I upgrade my i7 860 or GTX 950 2gb? PDT Rules Rules Disclose any open positions when discussing a particular stock or financial instrument. The book discusses existing policy documents on AMD and provides recommendations in response to the many socio-economic impacts which have not been fully addressed. you dont see any cpus from amd because the latest processor architecture, steamroller, and excavator are for fm2 and mobile only.

Intel has not been improving their cpus as much as they used to and they have been over charging their cpus lately precisely because AMD is sinking. The big question from a business perspective is why should they? I mean a six core 3.5GHZ 14MB CPU FOR £80? ($120). Asus, NZXT vs Corsair, in the long run, the real enthusiasts and gamers will migrate to whichever platform has the best performance, while the rest will just buy whatever crap they
