    Can someone navigate me to the page where I can generate these charts? I can't seem to find it.


    You can't generate them Tomshardware makes them and I link them.

    It is effectively Hyperthreading on steriods; see that.


    No its not they work on different parts of the CPU and in different ways.
    They both attempt to accomplish the same goal of increases Parallel processing performance.

    Actually, the FX is 3 cores, but with like hyperthreading on steroids (IIRC). I was browsing anandtech's forums, and someone showed tons better performance with the hyperthreading on steroids thing off.

    I'd go with the i3, because unless you wanna put all your eggs in piledriver, the i3 can be upgraded to a i5 when needed.


    No Hyperthreading is not like AMDs cores.
    We have been over this they are 6 cores they are small cores but they are 6 cores.
    Disabling CMT(Clusterd multithreading) will give performance boost in apps that are threaded poorly on an OS that is not optimized for Bulldozer.
    Initially with Hyperthreading do to the crappy way windows handled it could decrease performance more then 15%.
    This is one big advantage that Linux has as AMD has been able to do pull requests to fix problems.

    I know that, but how about in games that use 4 cores? :S

    Still going to lose AMD does not have that much of a clock speed advantage and Intel has hyperthreaded cores for it to gain some ground from games that could take advantage of 4 cores.

    Still probably better off with the 2100, $30 for a 300MHz increase? I really wished they pushed out an unlocked i3, but a boy can only dream.


    Its an option for him if he wants it.
    Ya but Intel likes to charge premiums for Overclockers.

    Hopefully Piledrivers increased power efficiency and other improvements and hopefully AMD can price it to be a very good deal for overclockers.

    Buy the 2100, not the 2120. There's little tangible benefit, though both are massively better than either AMD CPU.


    He could afford a 6200 if he can afford the 2130.
    They difference is not massive but why not if he has the money and he will get some benefit out of it.

    There are a lot of assumptions in this thread number 1 being that games will suddenly start using all the cores and AMD will come out on top. Dual cores have been out for years and a lot of games still don't make full use of them.

    Even in programs that are highly threaded AMD still does not dominate it still ties with Intel.

    AMDs per core performance is behind Intel and he said he is gaming something that is not highly threaded.

    I'd go with either AMD processor.

    Go with the Quad core if you don't do a lot of multitasking. Otherwise go with the 6 cores for multitasking. Both are great processors.


    Both are pretty terrible for the price and other then the most multithreaded tasks the I3 will be beating it.
    Not to mention for gaming the I3 crushes it.

    I'm no big IT/computer geek but i've heard generally that intel cores are better than AMD. As well as a few tests by myself


    It depends what you mean by better are they faster per core.
    AMD cores are smaller and more power efficient per core.

    What are you using this computer for and what are the other parts in your build.

    Get the I3 for most games its faster.

    The 6200 is marginally higher clocked then the 4100.

    Its a Ultrathin its AMD UltraBook.

    Do you mean something like this.



    That's a trinity notebook its a prototype and not an actual release one but they should be out in the next 15 days.

    Ultrabook is an invention of Intel, they are notebooks that fit into very tight specifications set by Intel.

    Trintiy is more then capable of everything you need it to do and they are releasing soon and have the best battery life of any Laptop CPU GPU combo for gaming.

    Quote from Santi871

    Intel Core line was designed for gaming, while Intel Xeon line was designed for server use, you should not use Xeon for gaming and/or Core for servers.

    Core CPUs are not meant to be used 24/7, all the days of the month, the whole year at 100% load, but Xeon CPUs are, thats why they have lower clock speeds.


    They use the same core one is not better designed for server use other then the support for ECC ram. They have lower clock speeds because they generally have more cores in the same package and they run at lower clock speeds because most server work loads are highly threaded so more cores and lower clock speeds is better. Server CPUs tend to be shoved into small racks so heat production is very important.

    ECC ram is probably not super important for MC most servers run without it.

    However you might consider offering enterprise servers that are more expensive that have ECC ram for people who run large servers.
