The price and necessary wattage are ridiculous. Might as well get a great Intel CPU for half that.


Holy f***, I didn't even look at the wattage...
220?!

It would be nice if it didn't has some insane TDP and price.

It still won't compete clock-for-clock with Intel. Pulling htat many Watts, I also wouldn't be surprised if it caused some motherboard discoloration around the socket.


They originally only wanted to sell it to OEMs to pair with specific mobos because it will damage basically any mobo that isn't designed for that much heat, even if you have a cooler that can keep up with it.

Is this the best AMD can do? Intel has been complacent for a couple of years now and they still can't catch up.
#16KURRUPTORPosted 8/27/2013 8:19:05 PM
This has been around for quite some time now.

I'm pretty sure everyone has agreed that it's just a terrible product. It doesn't perform anywhere near where it should for the price that's being charged, and that's not even factoring in the power-consumption or heat issues that is has... which are pretty big issues in and of themselves.

8350's are still pretty solid cpu's for their price but these new cpu's from AMD are pretty much just massively OCed versions of the exact same tech for 5x the price. It was just stupid on AMD's part to even release such a processor.

4.7 ghz, 8 cores. Probably still not as good as intel, but it certainly could be good in home workstations.


Not at that price it cant.
#18Vice4LifePosted 8/27/2013 8:35:57 PM
I feel like this is a practical joke by AMD. They just seem to have forgotten that April is the fourth month in the year, not the eighth. It seriously just looks like an overclocked 8350 for more than four times as much money.

I prefer Intel/NVIDIA, but have owned and enjoyed several AMD/ATI products before - I'm sure they made a good chip.......

.......220w
