If geeks love it, we’re on it
You found the friendliest gaming & tech geeks around. Say hello!
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?
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.
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.
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:
-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
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.
Check out this bundle fail from Newegg.
8120 is exactly the same chip. Unless you want slightly (maybe) higher OC potential, there's no reason to buy the 8150.
csimon, seriously, consider a Black Edition Thuban 6-core, $189. Save some CPU dollars for a real upgrade sometime later.
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?
I'm gonna overclock the snot out of the FX-6100!
