Welcome aboard.

Now make a chip that is cheaper and faster than the i7's to bring me back to AMD :mrgreen:

hi we just did!

The FX9590 is faster than all i7 models but one and cheaper; http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum/ha ... -5ghz.html

Take a look, :-)
cheers

Faster yes, better performance, no. The I7s are better, without going 2011.

Exactly

Is a 4.7 / 5GHz AMD processor ultimately enough to compete against Intel’s high-end offerings? The answer to that is multi-faceted. In properly optimized applications, the FX-9590 is a dominating presence which often runs just neck and neck with Intel’s comparatively priced Sandy Bridge-E processors. However, due to the disappointing single thread performance of the Piledriver architecture, in-game framerates in some titles tend to lag behind. There’s also just no looking past Intel’s ability to achieve similar or better performance without pushing their architecture to its absolute limit.


Thats the problem. I want to see something from AMD that makes me stand up and say WOW, they're back, not something that just says, ehhh it works better on some things by such small margins that it is not worth it for me to spend for a new MB and CPU.

Blow me out of the water! I want to see performance no less than 10% over what Intel is doing at all levels of the CPU. AMD was an innovator and I really hope you get back to that way of thinking.
