AMD compensates users who bought their CPU's.
#1
Feeling that they charged to much for their processors, AMD is refunding everyone with a valid sales form 20$.

https://www.amd-promotions.com/fx/uk/index.asp

Also, guess what, it's only valid in:

Quote:Austria, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Sweden and the UK.


AMD is admitting their fail at least.
Core i5 2500K @ 4.5GHZ, 8GB RAM 1866MHZ, 1080 GTX Strix, 128GB Samsung 830 SSD + 1TB Samsung 850 Evo SSD +  2 1TB HDDs.) Windows 7 64-bit Professional

why so negative bositman? those processors are still worth alot as a heavy task loader and a good media center to crunch some to get mobile. it all fits too well with the name and their benches. as I said before they's workers not players. I still like it. Wink

I can't find a task where these would perform better compared to the competition. My i5 @4,3 Ghz should outperform by far these CPUs even at video encoding which is supposed to be the super heavy threading work...
The sad part is the move, which looks like AMD has just given up and says "ok we're really bad, here's some 20 $ to compensate your loss" or something....

are there any benches for that? I mean a simple one. take FullHD VideoX (maybe a TV recorded stream) and try all possible fast setups on a top iProcessor and a bulldozer using a fully uptodate codec and crunch that video bits to mobile or just some generic modern mp4 file using some 264 and ACC

I would but sadly I don't care enough to waste time on that Tongue I've seen the PCSX2 performance, I already have a quad core and I fear the extra cores Bulldozer provides are close to totally useless in 99% of cases where I'd use them...not to mention the tremendous clock for clock gap between it and the sandy bridge series.

You mean between it (for most things) and Thuban/K10(.5) :/ Comparing to SB is just too much..

see bositman. I don't care much either. (butsureItried2makeugooglethatBiggrin) I have my system too. not much more I need.

also those guys who bought it will use it and don't really care if the sandy is better or not. as long as they are happy with their product itself there's no problem.
