AM2+ quad crusing at 3.04GHZ

65nm K10 desktop quad at 3.04GHZ. Intel's 45nm Penryn got pre-fragged by about 50%.

Intel may refuse to replace CPU if you overclocked -- Intel always knows how to extract money.

Way to delete my original post...are we hurting your feelings?

Just to test if the delete function works. Your comment is of no value any ways.

Aside from my comment on your feelings which are irrelevant anyway - no one cares about the feelings of someone who lies about having a ph.d - where are the valid links from a credible source? That is a question of value.

And please don't try to convine *anyone* that Fudzila is credible - or the Inquirer for that matter.

Why should Intel replace a processor that was overclocked?

Well, now we know you get your links from the Anandtech forums.

Who do you post as over there?

If Intel figurate out that if you load a CPU with too high frequency or too high voltage it might deny the RMA.

Yeah, with writing like that I would quote them.

I think I found a new sig.

Wait, now that I think of it, Sharikou == Faud??

The grammer is certainly the same.

These first screen shots if true, (who is Fudzilla?) the K10 is looking better than advertised. Within the next few hours hundreds of Intel-ers will be apologizing to Sharikou. I wonder if we’ll have dialog and debate or the same slanderous diatribe. Select provided samples on what machine isn’t conclusive, but the tide may be turning for AMD.

Uuuaaauuu!!!

Go AMD!

4 days away!

Lol

Enumae - you make a great point. Overclocking not only violates Intel's warranty policy, it violates AMD's as well. So if you overclock, fry your proc, and think you deserve to have it replaced you're sorely mistaken, on EITHER side of the fence.

To R: Fudzilla's site is even more full of crap than the Inquirer and on par with the owner of this blogs inane BS. Even if Sharidouche were 100% right (which I think his rate is right at 1%)the fact that he lies about having a ph.d negates anything he posts.

To LeeCooper: Yes - in four days you will see selected benchmarks, run by AMD, not allowing anyone to touch the machines, and that's it...if they do let people touch then I can guarantee you they'll be way more restricitive than Intel was with Penyrn.

Um, yeah you try to return a burned out AMD processor because you over clocked it and see what happens.


Holy crap Ph(ake)d, you really need to get a freaking clue.

First its bad for Intel to lower chip prices. Then you recommend AMD does the same thing and it becomes this panacea.

The world really spins differently for you no?

"Ph"ony "D"octorate,

Only a few more days till AMD is again exposed.

How about that quarter heah? 600 million losses. Only billion + in the bank. AMD on the road to a restructure.

I hear Hector is willing to listen to all options including prostituting himself to anyone to raise cash. Its too bad his backside is so used that he'll find no offers.

AMD BK in 08 I say

"Ph"ony "D"octorate

Any comment about the latest calculation after AMD and INTEL release that INTEL took back how much market share was that there?

Weren't you telling your followers AMD would be at 40% or more by now?

What happened there.. make another "Ph"ony prediction?

I found this on The TomsHardware Forumz. http://forumz.tomshardware.com/hardware/AMD-problems-cash-ftopict233540.html

Because of the vary restrictive deal AMD has on the loan they used to purchase Ati they may have more trouble than people expected in raising much needed cash.

Turns out Morgan Stanley gets all the following from AMD:

--All net proceeds from any new debt

--All cash proceeds from asset sales over $30 million

--All cash proceeds from sales of AMD's stake in its former memory chip unit, Spansion Inc. (SPSN.O: Quote, Profile , Research)

--Half of the net proceeds from issuing new shares

--Half of excess cash flow

AMD might just be in a spot of trouble with it's fund raising efforts then.

The two silicone warlords are warming up their word engines in preparation of the Barcelona release, but only the tech addicts will be feeding on the numbers. The stock market only cares about profit and Joe six-pack could care less. Diehard AMD fans are already urinating on them selves while Intel-ies yawn from boredom. Myself, I’ll hang around awhile to watch the spinners spin. Man I love this stuff. Enjoy.

It not matters what Barcelona benchmarks and or speed is and whether or not it is really shipping nor what AMD says next week.

The bottom line they don't have a viable business model.

So in the "Ph"ony "D"octorate's own words BK in 08 or bought out and sold out by equity firms.

AMD will likely get to 45nm with IBM's inferior SOI/strained silicon but will never get a HighK metal gate version out before they are no longer a independent company. Come now you guys really think Charter will have silicon technology that can compete with INTEL at 45 or 32nm?

AMD is in big trouble Running out of cash and unable to get more cash since Morgan Stanley has a strict loan with AMD. I think Morgan Stanley knew this would happen. But when AMD BKs Morgan Stanley will take over all AMD's assets and cash. They can sell all AMD's patents and IP for a pretty penny then flog off AMD's fabs, easily making more than 2x back what they loaned AMD. This is an excellent tactic!

I think Morgan Stanley and Intel were working together the whole time. When AMD goes BK in Q2'08 or before they will sell all AMD's assets, IP, patents etc to Intel for a nice amount of cash. Since Intel could never outright buy AMD this is a brilliant idea. Everything except the fabs that is, Intel has plenty of fabs already. But there are plenty of companies who are willing to buy a fab, Morgan stanley will make about 7.5bn from carving up AMD, and it only cost them 2.5bn.

You should probably make use of a spell checker. Cruising is not spelled Crusing. I guess using a spell checker is beyond the capabilities of a PhD blogger. Technology is useless in the hands of a monkey.

Oh, yeah, what again about Intel being bankrupt in Q2'08? Intel's Q1 profit exceeded AMD's revenue for the quarter. Intel's tax bill is nearly 1/3 of AMDs quarterly revenue. That should be an embarrassment for AMD and its fans.

Sharikou said: "Intel always knows how to extract money."

Finally, a good point from you.

AMD on the other hand is quite an expert in spending money that is not even theirs. Soon the people who's money got spend on a graphics company that also doesn't seem to know how to extract money, will want their money back. But guess what, Intel's going to make sure that AMD will be so broke that they'll soon ask for an Intel license to make Core2Duo just to be able to cough up interest repayments on their massive and crippling debt.
AMD will soon be the slave of institutional investors and Intel's proxy competitor just to appear not to be a monopoly.
