You found the friendliest gaming & tech geeks around. Say hello!
fatcat said:also can I get a breakdown of how/why Turbo frequency works and is there a way to just have the CPU run at the turbo freq all the time?
Cliff_Forster said:It disables idle cores to maintain the stock TDP while overclocking the active cores. You can disable it and just straight overclock it to run full out all the time. I did this with my Phenom II X6.
Thrax said:http://tech.icrontic.com/news/amds-dynamic-overclocking-turbo-core/Except with Bulldozer, cores can be turned on and off in sets of two. TurboCORE has also been expanded to include frequency boosts for all cores being active. I believe per-module (2x cores) voltage adjustment has also been added, but don't quote me on that.
Thrax said:It isn't Corsair or Antec. ;)
added a few on the lost, disregarding bentmarks.[H] is relaunching 2600K today, lots of single thread and clock-for-clock comparisons.so far i see BD doing well on the following:-mainconcept http://www.lostcircuits.com/mambo//index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=102&Itemid=1&limit=1&limitstart=17-mediashow http://www.guru3d.com/article/amd-fx-8150-processor-review/14-vp8 http://www.guru3d.com/article/amd-fx-8150-processor-review/17-sha1-photoshop cs5 http://www.lostcircuits.com/mambo//index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=102&Itemid=1&limit=1&limitstart=14-winrar, improves over x6 http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/fx-8150-zambezi-bulldozer-990fx,3043-16.html-7-zip same perf as 2600k
keto said:Lotta reviewers around the net having problems reaching those sortsa numbers, or haven't figured out how to do the dual core thang yet. 4.6-4.7 seems to be the magic number. At a HUGENORMOUS (that's right, I said it!) power cost, relative to its competitors. I'm not much of a 'green' but neither am I thrilled when I pay the power bill every month.

Leonardo said:8120 is exactly the same chip. Unless you want slightly (maybe) higher OC potential, there's no reason to buy the 8150.
Leonardo said:csimon, seriously, consider a Black Edition Thuban 6-core, $189. Save some CPU dollars for a real upgrade sometime later.
Thrax said:Not a clue. However, I make the assumption that a 95W part with a max stock clock of 4.0 has lower leakage than a 125W part with a max stock clock of 4.2.Get my drift?
Cliff_Forster said:I'm gonna overclock the snot out of the FX-6100!
