3. weak cores
4.Low max on ram clock speed.

>> No.61820246

>>61815408
there is a reason why amd fired nearly half of its senior management and ceo when bulldozer launched.
it was all because bulldozer was horrendously miss managed. after its release a lot of current and former employees spilled the beans. amd's management where hiding information, poor communication, over inflating estimates, and flat out lying about bulldozers performance during design. no one wanted to admit they were making mistakes and where on the wrong path.
evidently when it became to apparent to hide is when amd started to layoff personnel and since they had nothing, released bulldozer full well knowing it was an absolute failure.
so much of a failure than bulldozer at release was 20% slower than amd's own previous generation, phenom ii, clock for clock. piledriver released a year later in 2012 was still slower than phenom ii clock for clock, but not as bad as bulldozer. around 7-10%. all piledriver had going for itself and made it "better" was its much higher clocks. into the 4ghz+ range.
the amd today is vastly different than the amd of the late 2000's.

to be fair the gap between the hedt chips and ryzen is much lower and the price difference does not do intel favours, so while the 7700k is "better" it's a subjective choice of whether you're happy with a 4c/8t gaming pc or something that's far better for everything else, either way you can't be mad at amd given that they're forcing intel into putting hyperthreading on i5s and are making 6c/12t and higher far more mainsteram

because they didn't realize processors would shit themselves at 5GHz so they designed it to clock up to like 20.
Then when they melted at fucking 4GHz realized they had made a huge mistake but already put all this R&D into it so decided to stick it out until AMD pushed their shit in a bit more.

as someone who used a 8320/8350 and has a 1700x now :


for games they were fairly shit. they ran very hot. motherboards were all shit except the sabertooth and maybe a couple others. pcie2.0.


they served me well, but i have plenty of complaints . the fact that amd pulled ryzen out of their ass is amazing.

only the most diehard fan will tell you that FX was great , i had a FX6100 (clocked at 4.6ghz) and it was a good budget chip (payd 40€ for it) but it ran hot an was slow , got a i7 2600 a few months later from a friend and it was just so much better , while being cooler and taking much less power

now im on a ryzen 5 1600 and its a superb chip , best performance/$ by far , and a powerhouse when you need cores , (outperfoming my friends 4.6ghz 5820k ) its almost like intel and AMD have swapped places in perf/watt terms

Now everybody is well acquainted with the Brescott meme. But do people remember what a piece of shit the earliest iteration of Pentium 4 was, the Willamette?

Even though the Pentium 4 Willamette was so ridiculously expensive, the Pentium 3 Tualatin kicked its arse SO hard Intel actually had to gimp the Tualatin to prevent it from embarrassing their Shiny New Revolutionary Netburst CPU™.

Here's what they did to Tualatin to artificially hold it back
1) Halved the L2 cache just before launch
2) Limited FSB to 133mhz (P4 had 400mhz) - even though the Tualatin could theoretically support a much faster FSB
3) Limited RAM to 133mhz SDRAM (P4 supported 200mhz DDR) even though the Tualatin could support 200mhz DDR.

Fuck Intel.

Ah, so the server edition had the original amount. I knew it was server, I bought that hardware in 2008 when it was dirt cheap. It was awesome, it could run Warcraft 3, WoW well ( with an MX 440 in a PCI slot and 375 MB sdram ) and even browsing was fine on it ( flash was slow but I didn't play farmerama or whatever back then ). Shit was fine on it but Ubuntu needed more ram, so I had a mandriva on it later. Somehow that hardware was competent even at that time. Either genius design or slow tech advancement since then.

The only real advantage that Netburst had over P3 is that the Netburst designs emphasized SSE (SIMD) performance and so were faster in that particular area than the Tualatin. Of course...once GPUs supported T&L then the importance of SSE went down. Netburst was basically filled with out of date ideas (that might have sounded good at the planning stage) from the moment of release.

Pentium M is basically living proof that Tualatin could annihilate even the fastest P4s if Intel hadn't gimped its FSB and RAM support. Unfortunantly because Intel did gimp the latter two, the P3 Tualatin can lose to the P4 Willamette in memory intensive scenarios.
