I made a comparison, valuable or not about two processors,@BoomerD
I'm not calling him a nutjob. I'm calling the guy who runs van's hardware a nutjob.
So you're saying that it doesn't matter what a cpu's IPC is? Wrong.
Wrong again. I had an i7 720QM laptop. It was much faster than my phenom desktop. Especially in cpu intensive tasks the i7 at 1.6ghz(+Turbo) would match the phenom at 3ghz.
What the fuck are you talking about? You're the one who comes in with a biased opinion about how great amd is, and how evil intel is.
Reading some of the guys articles on vans hardware, I get the impression that he is a nutjob who believes in some great overarching conspiracy to justify why X is X and Y is Y.
Just like those doomsday cultists and the 7-day adventists, jehovaw's witnesses, and those baptists that spread the world will end fliers trying to get you to join them to 'save your soul.'
and your answer was to branding me as a conspiration paranoiac..
was that on topic ?....
Nehalem is a good proc., but saying that your laptop 1.6 is better
than a X6, that s quite exagerated..
As for IPC, of course it matters, but it s not the whole story.
As pointed by another reader, when thread count is high,
cores matter much more.
Also, about Anand neutrality, i would say that he tries
to do his job correctly, but alas, he has to more or less
abide by his sponsor will , which is quite understable since
what count for most of us is what put food on the table.
