AMD's First Quad Core is here....

Newegg.com - AMD Phenom 9500 Agena 2.2GHz Quad-Core 4X 512KB L2 Cache 2MB L3 Cache Socket AM2 95W Processor - Retail

Still not up to Intel par though: [H] Enthusiast - AMD Phenom & Spider vs Intel QX9770

Re: AMD's First Quad Core is here....

About time, too bad about the reviews though. And funny the reviewer said AMD told them clock rates do not matter, because our AMD rep was telling us the same sorta thing when we compared the AMD chip to the Intel chip saying how certain factors don't matter.

Just watch, Intel is going to release a bunch of new chips before Christmas and drop the prices. Just watch.

There's more, but I didn't feel like looking through all of them.

Ok, so we were wrong.

Guess you've never said anything that turned out to be wrong. Silly Intel Fan boy.

Re: AMD's First Quad Core is here....

You know, I have to be around these electronics all the time and I have to admit something. When a laptop or desktop freezes up and crashes, it's always an AMD chip that's in there. The HP Touchscreen PC for example, the thing had to be reformatted every week or two because it would progressively get worse. And same went for some laptops, which really surprised me because I always thought Intel and AMD were practically equals.

Re: AMD's First Quad Core is here....

^the first pc i built for myself was an intel, never once crashed, or even had a blue screen... second pc i built was an amd... crashed constantly, BSOD at least once a day... this new pc is an intel... only had one crash, and that was something i caused myself

so yea, amd's track record isn't so great as far as i'm concerned

Re: AMD's First Quad Core is here....

I've built a number of AMD machines and a few Intel boxes, too. I haven't had any trouble out of either one of them. I have, over quite a few years, made a pretty good chunk of change off AMD's stock. So I usually lean that way. I'm not currently a stock holder, though. I sold my last chunk of stock for the down payment on this house.

Re: AMD's First Quad Core is here....

im actually using my first intel ever right now.. no complaints either way.

in fact, processors are low on the list of my vital computer parts... well.. not that low. i think its important to have a decent processor... but the video card and ram are just so much more vital.

Wish there was an easier way to tell customers the biggest differences between the Intel and AMD other than bad experiences and cheaper prices.
