    Too bad a 3 year old CPU is what most benchmark reviewers still use to this day. Apparently its not so ancient as you make it out to be heh. And a 980x is fair game!!!

    999 USD = 980x last gen
    250 USD = FX 8150 this gen

    999 USD = 3 x 6970s last last
    250 USD = 7850 this gen (close guess)

    Would it be fair game to compare a 7850 to 3 x 6970s in Crossfire just because its last gen? The day an overclocked 7870 beats 3 x 6970s in Crossfire at stock id be impressed wouldn't you?

    Come on now, that's an outrageous argument and you know it. There is always a single $1000 processor in Intel's lineup, and back when AMD had the performance to justify it there was a similar top FX. They have never been about value, and cherry-picking the absolute possible value comparison doesn't help the perception that you're an AMD marketing shill.

    Comparing to a 980x is fine, but comparing prices on a previous gen's ultra-low value BS part is crap.

    it's one of his very few arguments. oh, and it does over 9000 in 7zip!

    The 999 price tag is definitely unjustified. Even an i5 2500k falls behind a 4 year oldi7 920 in many benchmarks. IT really is a good chip overall.

    In the first page of this thread i see benchmark tables with a lot of CPUs, including Core i7 2600K overclocked to 5GHz+.

    In the gaming benchmarks, older drivers will have a bigger impact in performance than the overclocked FX8150 at 1080/1200p.

    I will agree that you need the same software (drivers etc) in order to have a legit benchmark run.

    I would take his data and evaluated the correct way ;)

    Feel free to keep doing zoner posting. They (and you) seem to appreciate your benchmark methods better than we do.

    You go so far out of the way to try to make the intel setup look bad.first over clock that 980 and see what it does to your bd.i new at some point you would bring money into it.

    If you are going to bring money into it then compare todays sandy e x79 setups because the reason that 980 was so much was that it beat the crap out of everythibg in the market and even today is still faster than anything from amd.try overclocking a 980 and see what it does against a top end bd.

    You are nothing more than an amdzone troll.amd bd sucks and thats the truth...you overclock the hell out of it and compare it to a stock clocked 980 and pic selected benchmarks to make the bd look good.

    I like your review where you say intel is done in this bench 7zip and cant keep up but when i clocked my 2600k to the same speeds i beat the crap out of your test and i could of clocked it even higher.i broke 31k with ease with a 2600k and an overclocked sandyE would murder my 2600k so you see why intels top end is 999? Even 3 years later amd cant compete and once 22nm ivyE hits x79 with 8 cores that will justify its price tag because it wil be the top runner for years.

    BIG edit lol the 3930k 6 core sandy E cpu is 599 at newegg right now....I would love to see that cpu go up against his over clocked BD,I also think it might actually beat his tests in every bench at stock speeds lol

    First of all, there are only like 5 people who post there anymore. I posted there a few times and I just had to watch what I said because I knew if I spewed anything too good about Intel, I would probably get banned. They are an AMD Fanboy Cult. Take a look at the post about Tom's hardware. One of the reviewers posted from Tom's on AMDzone and the moderators flamed him out of the discussion.

    If watts were measured as performance, AMD would be a solid winner.

    Yes you get real sick in the head losers at AMDZone.

    Sadly, you have Mods on some forums like Tom's, that run interference to offer them protection, because of their own AMD Fanboyism. o_O

    I was only upset because I had my thread closed here due to the faults of others thread crapping. And yes the i7 920 is a good chip, better than most new chips out today.

    If your threads are being crapped in then report the offending posts.

    Wow, he has a great review. Something is tweaked in Dirt 3 to give it better FPS, its an AMD title for sure.

    Seems that the FX is doing just fine in gaming. I wonder what the minimum FPS were though. I still would like to see BF3 on a 64 player map, well my 5850 is coming back so I can strap that to my FX6100 and play some BF3 64 player at Low settings to see the CPU performance!

    So along these lines, should we compare a budget Intel G630 to a Athlon X2 265 from late 2009? Let's show a modern budget option murdering a three-year old budget option.

    This comparison is silly, and you lose more credibility every time is repeated. If you want to compare BD, it should be against it's current competition.

    4100 = i3 2100
    6100 = i5 2400
    8120 = i5 2500
    8150 = i5 2500/i7 2600K

    I won't post gaming benchmarks being that this is a CPU sub forum.

    LOLZ , this bench use a memory bandwith starved FX at 1333mhz
    while the 920 more than compensate with a slightly lower memory frequency but a triple channel and 50% more RAM as well...

    Dirt3 run well on AMD thanks to dedicated optimisations
    wich are anyway the norm for Intel s CPUs on almost any other title...

    I know English isn't your native language, but could you explain what you are trying to say? Your post doesn't make any sense.

    I would have expected you to be somewhat wiser...

    You re implying that anybody by there agree with the opinion
    you expressed in the relevant post about the OP , wich is not true.

    Stock i7 920 (2.66Ghz) outperforming the patched FX8150 (3.6GHz) by ~19% in CPU-bound games at 1080p (2x 4Gb DDR3-1600 used for BD tests). Got another excuse?
