Pros Pretty high clock speed, its a quad core and I see its $120 brand new processors like this on Ebay brand new with slower clock speeds cost more (I don't get it
Cons What are you talking about? there is nothing bad about this processor
Summary Intel lovers should not be reviewing AMD i mean seriously? you know they are going to says it sucks and really Poor overall bang for the buck at this price; faster competing chip from Intel is also overclockable." I think this is a deal! a good one at that and why is this ****** talking about encoding lots will be gaming and he is saying at intel you get MUCH more bang for the buck do you see his charts? theyre just slightly better CNET needs to delete this "review" I hate people submitting false info there is a word for what he is doing......i just cant remember it and know whatr is funny AMD came out first every time on those charts
Pros Speedy and inexpensive...The reviewer for CNET was obviously in the backpocket of Intel. I found this processor for $89.
Cons There are no cons.
Summary I realize the review is outdated, but c'mon.
Pros Unlike Intels way over priced chips AMD actually has 4 separate cores. Its ability to overclock as well can easily bring it up to par and beyond and Intel chip. Plus they come with a superb heat sink (though if your overclocking get a new one.)
Cons None what so ever.
Summary Just buy it. You wont regret the investment. If you are planing to make a gaming machine with these you may consider waiting for the Socket AM3s to come out.
Pros Fast Fast Fast! Destroys all apps sent its way.
Cons Needs good aftermarket cooler to really let it open up for overclocking .
Summary I upgraded from a 5000+ BE to the 9850 BE and the result was insane. Encoding video now take a less that half the time as before. Gaming performance increased by a good factor(The Stars architecture is faster than the old Hammer architecture at the same clock speeds) It still may not me as fast as the Intel quads (well mine is more than a match to the q6600 and q6700 as mine is overclocked to 2.75.).
Cons Heating,needs nice cooling
Summary An ultimate gaming rig along with a decent graphic card
