Intelers are in denial

As I have shown in this comparison: the C2D and K8 architecture are neck to neck in terms of performance. Except the SSE advantage, the only trick C2D has is cache. Once the cache is reduced to the same level of K8, the C2D loses its advantage. Similarly, when C2D's cache is not enough, it's also slower than K8. As we noted earlier, 3GHZ Opteron conclusively frags 3GHZ Woodcrest in both integer and floating point computation.

Essentially, Core 2 and K8 cores have equal IPC in terms of integer, and Core 2 is at least 15% slower on FP.

K10 core will have 40% IPC lead over Core 2 on integer (per core).

K10 will have 200% IPC lead over Core 2 on floating point (per core).

You haven't shown me a thing. Show me a the still unseen AMD product running in a machine side by side with a Clovertown.

Why are there no screen captures no FPS, there simply isn't ANYTHING.

Essentially, Core 2 and K8 cores have equal IPC in terms of integer, and Core 2 is at least 15% slower on FP.

To begin, it is understood that AMD's platform has an advantage due to HTT in 2P+ systems, but that is not what Sharikou's post is about.

Sharikou's post is about per core performance, and as such he should be trying to show a per core comparison (as close as possible with dual cores).

So lets look at 1P performance, eliminating the HTT advantage over Intels FSB, while showing a core to core comparison.

Looking on SPEC for similar systems I found...

1. AMD FX62 CFP2006 Rates
2. Intel E6700 CFP2006 Rates
3. AMD FX62 CINT2006 Rates
4. Intel E6700 CINT2006 Rates

I would like to note that the AMD system is using DDR2 1066 CL5-5-5, and Intel is using DDR2 800 CL5.

AMD-FP 18.8 in SPECfp_rate_base2006
Intel-FP 25.1 in SPECfp_rate_base2006
AMD-INT 21.8 in SPECint_rate_base2006
Intel-INT 29.1 in SPECint_rate_base2006

These numbers tell a different story than Sharikou's post of how AMD and Intel compare on a core to core comparison.

It is looking like Intel has about a 33% advantage in Floating Point performance, and about a 33% advantage in Integer performance.

Again it is understood that AMD has an advantage in 2P+ systems due to HTT, but these resuts show a different picture than our host is trying to present when comparing the microarchitectures of Conroe and K8.

Notes

1. I am hoping someone could explain the effect of the higher latency on the AMD system.

2. If there is an error please point it out.

Thanks.

Don’t misunderstand! What sharikou trying to explain is “when the L2 cache memory of the C2D is reduced to equivalent with the K8 L2 Caches” the C2D loses its advantage. Similarly, when C2D's cache is not enough, it's also slower than K8.

Note:
L2 cache memory is totally different with the DDR2

Then the question remains: Why didn't AMD pump the cache to a level where to take the lead? It is one of three:
1- More cache means more expensive CPU. But then even if this is the reason, they can produce a processor and call it extreme, turbo, or you name it. Why do not they do it?
2- It could be That cache does not make a a noticeable difference in AMD performance. This is a drawback if true. If this is the case, no need to bother the answer as why they don't do it.

3- Both points above.

sharikou .. I am an amd fan. I am eager to upgrade to next AMD cpu killer. But I still need to be convinced there will be such one. Can you tell me if the cache is the trick, why don't they just apply it?

AMD doesn't have as much capacity as Intel, which can afford lower yield and more transistors while still remain profitable. In the semiconductor industry, size matters.

In other words, Intel's large cache and processing technologies could have resulted in much better system performance if they were applied to AMD's K8/K10 design.

Fifty percent faster than Kentsfield

"K10 part called Barcelona is up and running. It is not ready for launch but AMD already have the first part ready.

We don't have many numbers but at least in specfp_rate2000 Barcelona ends up a bit less than 50 percent faster than Intel quad core codenamed Kentsfield.

We are quite sure that this is the best score but it definitely sounds impressive. AMD chaps are very confident that K10 marchitecture and native Quad core is the way to go and Intel will probably have to pay the price for duct taping its chips. AMD will come to collect in second half of 2007."

This is the answer to your question.. check it out.

http://www.amd.com/us-en/Corporate/VirtualPressRoom/0,,51_104_543_544~115794,00.html

"Quad-Core AMD Opteron processors are packed with core and cache enhancements designed to improve performance on a range of server and workstation applications. Cache-sensitive transactional applications such as Web, database and email servers can benefit from the addition of a 2MB shared L3 cache. Simulations conducted in AMD laboratories indicate that certain database applications will see performance improvements up to 70 percent and certain floating point applications will experience performance gains of up to 40 percent over platforms powered by current dual-core AMD Opteron processors."

This answers what effect do the cache have in performance. If I understand the article, they will increase cache in quad cores, making them perform better in multi-threaded applications. But why do not they have dual and single core processors with higher cache as of yet to respond to the C2D?

Dear Ph(oney)D,

Do you REALLY think Intel is going to be where they are today when AMD finally releases the K10?

Its wonderful you can compare something that isn't even out yet, with something that is.

Mayhap you forget that Intel is contining its release of updated CPU's over the next year or so.

Hell by late last year, the K10 is still having serious thermal issues which are limiting its clock speed quite a bit...

But the phony PhD man keeps claiming Intel will be bankrupt by Q2 2008.

Real world workloads will depend on more than just calcs per clock. MB’s, compilers, graphics and chipsets optimized to enhanced algorithms will mature with 64-bit in 2007. There is enough arrogance and pride at Intel to more than make up the difference in short order. With billions of $ on the line; expect hyperbole from both camps. Enjoy the ride.

According to Intel’s own benchmarks, Intel saw a 15% increase in imaging related applications, 25% in 3D rendering tests, greater than 40% in games, and a greater than 40% increase in video encoding performance when SSE4 support was utilized.

Wow. Thanks for those Penryn numbers. Penryn is going to be an awesome upgrade from Core 2 on the desktop. Still socket 775 too. What Intel hasn't mentioned is how high Penryn can clock. But thanks to it's revolutionary high-k 45nm process Intel can clock these massively high will maintaining a low TDP. Not like AMD's crap. Intel does not mention shipping clockspeeds because they will adjust them as needed to totally frag Barcelona.

You think things will look ugly for AMD when it reports it's financial results later this week? It's only going to get worse for AMD. There's no way AMD can make it out of 2007 alive. If they want to, they will have to sell one of their fabs to raise captial.

Im sure, it is also will be remaining the same because during the time AMD also got a new processor called Shanghai. Shanghai will be manufactured in 45 nanometer and will hit the higher speeds. Despite more L3 cache memory the new CPU will have some minor architectural changes. It is a native quad core but you will be able to put two of them together for eight cores.

So,
2xShanghai (4+4=8cores) vs Nehalem (4 cores)? Is this what you meant?

Interesting way to look at Intel's earnings:

If Intel spent their quarterly net income just this one time, they would be able to purchase 21.7% of AMD-ATI. But hey, they need that money to plow back into R&D and capital equipment upgrades.

So let's look at disposable income. If they spent the $400M they spent last quarter on INTC buyback on AMD at current prices, they could buy 5.4% of AMD-ATI. So for one quarter of skipping buyback, Intel could purchase enough AMD to influence them, not hurt their pocketbook, and not get in trouble with SEC, FTC, or anyone else, because it is still a small minority share...

What? You mean like AMD too? Go to the AMD website, under CPUs and look at the Turion X2 and Athlon X2 benchmarks. They include lots of graphical tests and use different graphics solutions.

In servers, they post a few select benchmarks where Opteron beats Woodcrest. Of course, in these benchmarks, they fail to include a quad core Clovertown. Except for one benchmark. They include a Clovertown in one benchmark and that's only because the test makes heavy use of Opteron's IMC, easily allowing them to win.

Saying AMD is not guilty of this is plan rubbish!

Either way, did you see those Intel results? Not bad for a company that will be BK in Q2'08! 1.6bn profit.. that's more revenue than AMD will report this quarter!

LOL Why don't AMD add more cache to speed up their Barcelona ask Kingrichard?

WHY not little richard, because AMD is on 90nm and transitioning just now to 65n. While INTEL has

been on 65nm for almost 2 years. INTEL holds a 2x density advantage and thus for the same silicon

area can cram 2x the cache. Add on the fact INTEL as 4 65nm factories and 3 45nm factories in

construction while AMD has just ONE factory means a capability of 8x factor difference in transistor

packing density. ANy questions why AMD loses money and INTEL makes money while also still holding a

3x in unit volume and 2x in cache? Its because of their techology advantage and manufacturing

advantage.

How about them numbers there! $1,610,000,000 profit on 8,900,000,000 sales. That while completing

ramp to 65nn CPUs, finishing R&D on 45nm, building 3 additional 45nm factories, launching multiple

45nm CPU designs

Oh, the competition dropped prices 50%, intel followed and still made 1.6 BILLION profits. Lets

laugh at AMD's results later.

Did you see the gross margin forecast.. it went UP! Damm that sure looks like a company in trouble

and on the way to BK..

Barcelona is too little to late. To bad it didn't come last year and too bad AMD didn't invest 5

billion manufacturing 2 years ago too to make them a realy worthy competitor in x86. Lets look at

how grimm the disadvantage is

Barcelona on 65nm is ~ 283mm^2 with a palty 4 MB of L2/L3 cache

Penrym on 45nm is ~ 107mm^2 with honking 6 MB, multiply by 2x to get a quadcore you get 214mm^2 and

12 MB of cache

Factor in INTELs 4:1 ratio of 65nm factories and 4:1 rato of 45nm factory and figure INTEL can pump

out between 4 to 10x more CPUs then AMD.

"Ph"ony "D"octorate what is your explanation for these results and how will that quad-core Barcelona

change things around. You see them Penrym performance numbers from IDF?

Dude AMD is sooooooooooo in trouble!

Tick (Yonah ), Tock ( Merom ), Tick ( Penrym ), Tock ( Nehalem ), goodbye AMD!

Hey Azmount Aryl, what happend to AMD gaining further market share?

I previously estimated Intel would have an 80% market share by the end of '07. Intel it certainly performing better than I thought; it's market share is already at 79.5% according to iSuppli. Perhaps even 85% is achievable by Intel this year.

It's now clear that AMD is in dire trouble.

"The first quarter earnings results are likely to reveal just how brutal the current market environment in the microprocessor industry really is. While Intel said earlier today that it the company was able to keep declines in average processor selling prices to a minimum, AMD warned the financial community last week that the firm saw “lower overall average selling prices and significantly lower unit sales, especially in the resale channel” during Q1.

Prices for AMD’s desktop processors fell by an average of about 50%, according to a recent TG Daily analysis . iSuppli told us today that these price cuts were not enough to maintain market shares for AMD. Based on preliminary findings, iSuppli vice president Dale Ford estimates that AMD’s overall market share in the microprocessor industry may have declined 4.7 percentage points from 15.7% in Q4 2006 to 11.0% in Q1 2007. The analyst believes that Intel was able to regain market shares in the same time frame: “On a preliminary basis, I would estimate that Intel increased its market share in microprocessors from 75.7% in Q4 to 79.5% in Q1,” Ford told TG Daily. He described the exchange of market shares as “a big swing” and said that the market share shift was bigger than the firm initially had estimated.

Penryn is just a Kentsfield shrink with 1) larger cache, 2) SSE4, 3) deeper power saving. Other than SSE4, the performance boost seems to be only 10~15% for 20% higher clockrate and 30% faster FSB speed. Such scaling is terrible. Not to mention the faster FSB will require a more power hungry north bridge, totally negating the better power saving of the CPU.

In other words, performance wise, in most cases Penryn @3.3GHz will still lose to K10 @2.6GHz, and take more power due to its need of high power north bridge.

Of course there will be cases where Penryn outperforms K10; for example, when exotic SSE4-specific instructions are used, or when cache trashing happens at above 2MB (extremely rare). I'm sure Intel will persuade/pressure all benchmarks to favor Penryn, much like what it did for Core 2.

Market-wise, Intel has been doing better than AMD since there's PC, not because it had better products, but because it had more stupid customers. However, every major release since AMD's K6 has been giving Intel heavier and heavier punches. My guess is people are getting smarter more often.

"Penryn is just a Kentsfield shrink with 1) larger cache, 2) SSE4, 3) deeper power saving"

You forgot about twice as fast SIMD shuffling and improved FPU that is around 30-50% faster in most floating point calculations and 2x faster in taking square root.


"Other than SSE4, the performance boost seems to be only 10~15% for 20% higher clockrate and 30% faster FSB speed"

Where are your math skills? It has less than 15% higher clock, not 20, FSB also less than 30% faster.


"Not to mention the faster FSB will require a more power hungry north bridge"

What is your source of information?


"In other words, performance wise, in most cases Penryn @3.3GHz will still lose to K10 @2.6GHz, and take more power due to its need of high power north bridge"

Same as above. Also I'm sure that in single socket 2.5GHz k10 will not be able to compete with 3GHz Pentyn in vast majority of tasks. It simply doesn't have so much better IPC. In fact I'd be surprised to see K10 beating Penryn at most tasks at the same clock speed. Sure, it will beat it in some things but most definitely not in majority.

The quoted 40% more performance goes for the FSB limited benchmarks, not real world applications. When AMD compared 2P Clovertown with two 2.66GHz quadcores on 1066Mhz FSB against 2P K10 with up to three times as much bandwidth and they saw only 40% improvement I'd say things are not exactly good for them.


"I'm sure Intel will persuade/pressure all benchmarks to favor Penryn, much like what it did for Core 2"

What pressure? People used the same benchmarks they always had.



Also, you might want to reread the book you were quoting before about the ILP, I wasn't talking about imaginary perfect CPU that was discussed there.

one trick that AMD fanbois would use would claim the IMC and the northbridge differences. Yes, the Northbridge would consume some energy, but in total the current Intel platform is still more power efficient. You do not need to claim the extra energy used in Northbridge or a particular type of ram in the server case; you just need to measure the power at the plug (power source)! Tech report has shown benchmarks with reference to the total power used, and Intel's Core platform is more efficient.


In other words, performance wise, in most cases Penryn @3.3GHz will still lose to K10 @2.6GHz, and take more power due to its need of high power north bridge.


you can claim whatever you want, just like AMD did in a presentation of Intel's platform power usage (by summing up all the max power of each components!). However, benchmarks have proven that Intel's Core platform is more power efficient.

Penryn is just a Kentsfield shrink with 1) larger cache, 2) SSE4 (significant for the video encoding improvements), 3) deeper power savings and 5) the faster FSB for bandwidth reliant apps like Cinebench

Why was Penryn compared against lower clock speed (3.3GHz vs 2.9GHz)?

Penryn: 45 nm, 1333 MHz FSB, 6 MB L2 Cache, 3.33 GHz
Core 2: 65 nm, 1066 MHz FSB, 4 MB L2 Cache, 2.93 GHz

Why the XQ6800 wasn't overclocked at 3333MHz???

Because it can. They are comparing the product that base on market frequencies. According to Intel, one of the official freq for Penryn is 3.33GHz



Why the XQ6800 wasn't overclocked at 3333MHz???


They are comparing the CPU performance, not IPC. Having high IPC is good for performance, having high frequency is good for performance too. What is more important is that Intel is able to do that within the thermal envelop.

What about overclocking the Barcelona to 3.33GHz to compare to Yorkfield then? some questions that ppl need to ask are that
1) what will be the power envelop for the Barcelona in 3.33Ghz? (IIRC, 95W @ 2.5GHz)
2) will it ever able to run stably in 3.33Ghz?

"Not to mention the faster FSB will require a more power hungry north bridge"

We all know this is nonsense. Penryn will work in the same chipsets that the current Core 2 Duos can work in. For instance, the Intel P965 chipset.

Penryn will wipe the floor with Barcelona. Introduced at speeds in excess of 3.33Ghz. The architectural enchancements that Intel have made will mean that Penryn is more efficient than Barcelona, while still being clocked far higher.

My guess is people are getting smarter more often.

That's right. People realise that Intel is the "smarter choice", providing great performance whilst using less power. AMD is finished. They dropped prices on their dual core CPUs to well below $100 and still no one wants them.

Pat Gelsinger at IDF also talked more about Tigerton, the successor to Tulsa. Taking the core micro-architecture to MP servers and wiping out AMD's one remaining glimmer of hope. AMD will be forced to slash Opteron prices to $250 for the top end model.

It would be interesting to see if AMD can even walk out of 2007 in one piece.

I have no doubt it will. If lucky it will happen on 65nm before 2009.

Though isn't it interesting that first Intel quadcore clocked at 2.66GHz last November and AMD hopes to get its highest end quads up to 2.5GHz by the end of this year. There have been rumours that Intel will release Penryn quadcores at up to 3.4Ghz this year. I wouldn't be surprised to see 3GHz quadcore Barcelona fighting against 4GHz Penryn quadcore.

2.) They keey BTU's as low as possible
3.) They keep watt/hours as low as possible
4.) They keep costs as low as possible.

Right now, Intel has the lead. Firmly.

The AMD fanboi's can talk about Barcelona all they want, but they seem to think Intel isn't moving forward. Sure Barcelona MAY be faster than today's Core2 chips from Intel, but as I said before, when Barcelona hits some time in 2008, Intel will be there with something considerably faster than the CURRENT Core2 stuff.

Wake up folks, Intel isn't playing child like games here.

I swear the fanboi's claiming Penryn is just a die shrink must be skipping over all the other details that have been released about Penryn at IDF. Gordan Moore himself said that the move to 45um production is made possible by the use of high-k and metal transistors

Actually LeePooper - Intel announced a while ago that they would be making advances every year - one year enhancements to the current generation(ie penryn this year) and the next a new archetecture (ie nehalam (sp?) next year) that is *why* they are doing it. It has nothing to do with being "afraid" of AMD.

Also - regardless of what you've linked, the simple fact that they are switching to High-K in the transistors means it is more than a simple shrink. That is a *significant* advancement. (More than IBM and AMD saying "us too us too!" when in reality they're at least a year out from even going to 45nm if not longer given their current financial status). The inclusion of SSE4 and the other enhancments preclude this from being a simple die shrink (ala brisbane for AMD's x2).

I don't make Intels strategy Intel does, and regardless of your denial, that strategy is working quite well. Their strategies, (or AMD's) however, do not drive my purchasing decsions any more than it should yours.

In terms of personal use - I buy what has the best price/performance ratio at the time I'm getting ready to upgrade based on the budget I've set for myself. I don't sit around waiting for the next greatest thing - that's a vicious cycle of frustration.

In terms of enterprise use - the project timeline dictates the purchase and follows similar guidlines to personal purchases in that we have a budget to work with and will base what we purchase based on what the best price/performance is within those budget guidelines.

Intel's, (nor AMD's for that matter), "future" release's do not drive any purchasing decision I make unless that decision is going to be made *after* the release and subsequent performance validations are available.

If you are dismissing high-k as not being innovative then you're not only an idiot (which is not in doubt) but blind as well.

I must add that your ardent support of Sharidouche who has been proven to be an outright liar (ph.d? please, my 16 year old son is more intelligent and coherent than this moron), just puts you in the same light as Sharidouche. People like you are born to be made fun of due to your gullibility.

To LeeCooper - I support both companies equally - out of 17 computers in my home over half are AMD based systems - my last main desktop before this one was an Athlon64 3700+. I favor the company with my $$$ that gives me the best bang for my $$$ at the time I upgrade - again not a difficult concept to consume.

My last upgrade cycle happened to be when C2D was the best performing proc for the money - and well ahead of AMD dropping their prices to stupid levels. I recently upgraded my HTPC and my wifes PC to x2 4600's 65w because for the price the performance couldn't be beat. (proc and mobo for $119 was just too good to pass up.) Even with Intel's upcoming price cuts next week the deal was just to good. :)

As to why I personally respond to some of these posts - a) I'm insanely bored at the moment, and b) The level of fanboyism that plunges into outright stupidity in terms of what some of these guys post here is just to easy to have fun with (see my response to Penix above).

Sharifraud Has Absconded

San Francisco, USA: The ultimate AMD fanboy, named Sharkou, or "The Doctor" has gone invisible, suddenly stopping the flood of the stinky puke he has come to be famous for. Some say that he has committed suicide. Other's say that they last saw him riding a donky in east Afganistan, where one of his cousins, Osama Bin Laden is believed to be hiding. It is not very clear at this point what him pushed over the edge. One school of thought say that Sharikou was always delusional, and suffered from schizophrenia. In his catatonic episodes, he was known to keep staring at the screen, without responding to sane comments from the extremely intelligent visitors of his blog. However, there are others who refuse to believe in this theory. Conspiracy theorists believe that, Sharikou has lost the faith in the AMD leadership, and has gone to seek help from his notorious cousin, Osama Bin Laden. The truth is bound to come out sooner or later. Stay tuned.

I actually find all of this amusing but would like to add that since Intel fired Sharikou pHd they have been on a roll. It appears Intel was severely handicapped while he was on their payroll. As far as Sharikou not responding, he is, just under the assumed name Penix. Compare the writing styles and comments and you too will find the truth. ;-)

Barcelona will be paper launched in June, expect full disclosure shortly that this processor family will be delayed by a few weeks and the ramp up will not occur as planned. The performance numbers that will be presented next week are very specific in regards to two particular benchmarks, there is a very heated debate about displaying general performance numbers at this time as they are just not that impressive yet.

AMD will not hit a 50% run rate until late Q2 in 2008. The financial numbers tomorrow are worse than expected and additional product news is not going to be good.

Also, forget about the high-end R600 as the XTX version was canned yesterday. The power requirements were too great for the board suppliers to contend with at this time. The top card will be the XT with 512MB of memory and performance falls right under the 8800GTX.
Argue all you want, but AMD is going down a dangerous path with late product introductions and the cost containment measures will only make this worse.

Heres some benchmarks from intel regarding Penyrn, take them with a grain of salt, but I found it interesting that a DC Penyrn is faster @ divx encoding that a QC Kentsfield

"You do not need to claim the extra energy used in Northbridge or a particular type of ram in the server case; you just need to measure the power at the plug (power source)!"

Yes, I was talking about system power usage. For the same amount of memory and the same video cards, an Intel E6600 takes about 20W more power than an AMD X2 4800+ at idle and 40W more under load. The E6600 performs better in most (but not all) cases, but is also twice more expensive (both CPU and MB).

Penryn will consume more power than E6600. Barcelona, however, will stay in the same power envelope as K8 X2.

Boy, the Intel FUDsters are foaming at the mouth right about now, aren't they?

What about overclocking the Barcelona to 3.33GHz to compare to Yorkfield then? some questions that ppl need to ask are that
1) what will be the power envelop for the Barcelona in 3.33Ghz? (IIRC, 95W @ 2.5GHz)
2) will it ever able to run stably in 3.33Ghz?


Sorry, guy, doesn't look like it will be too big of a stretch, according to this story!

Quote: Agena is up and running and we learned that it can be a really nice overclocker. At stock voltage you can overclock the 2.5 GHZ native quad core part to at least 3 GHz. If you increase the voltage you will go even further.

So, if it can get to at least 3 GHz at stock voltage, I don't think 3.33 GHz will be too difficult.

"Not to mention the faster FSB will require a more power hungry north bridge"

We all know this is nonsense. Penryn will work in the same chipsets that the current Core 2 Duos can work in. For instance, the Intel P965 chipset.


Sorry guy, but this doesn't look like it will be the case...

Read this article.

All of the processors are run on Intel D975XBX2 'Bad Axe 2' motherboards, but the Wolfdale and Yorkfield processors needed motherboard voltage modifications to run correctly. This is the sign that all current Intel D975XBX2 motherboards will not support Penryn as modifications are needed.

So, if you feel up to doing some impromptu motherboard surgery, it ,will be compatible, otherwise, you're probably out of luck. Keep that soldering iron handy!

I'm so sick of the blatant fanboyism in these comments. I have reviewed the IDF Beijing reports. I have reviewed the AnandTech report. Both are inconclusive, unimpressive, and can be attributed directly to an increase in cache and/or clockspeed.

AnandTech states "Penryn vs. Conroe improvements to be in the 5 - 10% range at minimum depending on the application." This is not even CLOSE to the 40% bullshit Intel claim. Intel is spouting their phony benchmarks and you fanboys are eating it up once again.

Barcelona is in position to blow Intel out of the water and you fanboys are too blind to even acknowledge it as a likely possibility. All I hear is the chanting of this "HIGH-K!" buzzword. High-k is about as innovative as MMX, Strained Silicon, Netburst and all those other bullshit buzzwords Intel has thrown out in the past.

"So, if you feel up to doing some impromptu motherboard surgery, it will be compatible, otherwise, you're probably out of luck. Keep that soldering iron handy!"

Also note that power consumption scale up in cubic with increase in both voltage and frequency.

That is, a north bridge with 1.3x higher FSB clock rate and (presumably) 1.2x higher voltage will take 1.3*1.44=1.872, or about 87% more power.

That's ~15W in additional to the (conservatively) 18W power usage on the chipset & FSB. Thus expect a 65W Penryn to use more power than a 95W Agena when MB is taken into account.

Ignoring that you are just plain wrong about power scaling, you are aware that AMD cpu's have a chipset also, correct?

As a matter of fact, most AMD motherboard chipsets actually have more chips than Intel motherboards.

http://techreport.com/reviews/2007q2/core2-qx6800/cine-power-peak.gif

Check out those power consumption numbers! 4x4 doubles as a space heater for sure!!

Penix is a fool. He claims Intel's "40%" number is BS, then comes out of nowhere and says Barcelona will be 200% faster! Even AMD have just kept refering to 40% in a single FP application.

Intel's high-k 45nm technology is the greatest breakthrough in the last forty years! What does AMD have? A broken 65nm process that produces CPUs slower than the 90nm process! They also have an ancient 90nm process for spaceheaters, sorry, I mean CPUs.

Sun has has some excellent new Intel based servers on show at IDF, 4P Tigerton server was showed. Compare the awesome performance of this to AMD's ancient 90nm junk scrapheap CPUs.

Intel should find some trivial things to sue AMD over. This will tie them up in court with more expensive legal fees and will ensure that AMD's BK is even sooner than the projected Q2'08.

AMD's losing market share like crazy. AMD is bleeding money like crazy. AMD has lowered prices to such an extent that they're going to lose cash even faster, but still people refuse to buy AMD trash.

A mid-range Core 2 Duo E6600 will easily frag all AMD's processors in performance and energy efficiency.

As a note - no where in my postings do I say Barcelona won't perform. I simply say that we've seen no valid numbers from anyone, except AMD. At least with Penyrn Intel allowed outside testing, al be it limited. What has AMD shown? Power Point slides with theortical numbers.....>yawn<

And none of that changes the fact that AMD's financials are in the toilet and going down fast than Sharidouche on Hectors jock. All while Intel meets expectations and posts a profit AND gained market share.

So hold on to those delusions of your Penix, we know it's all you have. When the real numbers come out we'll see - until then stop with the 200% BULLSHIT.

For sure. Intel just sold no processors during that time, right?

Compared to who? Ati? With the god awful Catalyst Control Center that apparently needs to have FIVE running processes in the background?! Ati doesn't even matter anymore. 8800 GTX is twice as fast as any Ati GPU.

What did HardOCP have to say about the 8600 GTS?

AMD/ATI should be very worried at this point. NVIDIA just released their entire DX10 mainstream lineup and it delivers. Compared to ATI’s current generation the GeForce 8600 GTS kicks its butt. Compared to NVIDIA’s own last generation, GeForce 7 series, the GeForce 8600 GTS kicks its butt. We experienced the highest playable settings we have ever seen at this price range. The XFX GeForce 8600 GTS XXX Edition is one of the best gaming video cards we have ever used at $239.99. It provided the best gameplay experience for the money and has further performance potential for hardware enthusiasts.

If you are in the market for a mainstream video card that delivers great gaming, the GeForce 8600 GTS should be the only GPU on your list. It provides the best gaming performance for the price in today’s games, and has DirectX 10 support for tomorrow’s games.

Seeing as how without it shrinking to 45nm would be damn difficult and anything below that (32nm and further) would be next to impossible, I'd say it's pretty significant. Maybe not the greatest in 40 years but pretty damn big none the less.

The *only* reason Penix and all brush high-k off is because AMD doesn't have it. Why? Because they CAN'T do it for at least another two years - and again, given the financials from AMD, probably longer than that.

Myself I don't want to see AMD bankrupt (whoever coined BK should be slapped, it's assinine). AMD goes down we're back to $500+ CPU's and frankly I don't want to see that...outside of all that even if AMD were to go chapter 11, they'd still be there - leaner and probably meaner. But that much further behind.

I do not dispute their measurements, though IMO the use of 700W power supply is a mistake; most of the power consumption will be due to the low PSU efficiency.

My numbers are based on comparison between two custom-made E6600 and X2 4800+ (not 5000+), both using the same memory, harddrive, and video cards. I only measured the (direct) current going to the MB, so no PSU inefficiency was at play.

Also, I did not use Cinebench but prime95 to load the processors. I have no idea why they use Cinebench, too.

You simply made a big mistake in calling me a fanboi. I acutally own both systems, and perform my own measurements for my own business. I think those who do not do so but who believe whatever they see on-line are the real fanbois.

Gosh.. the "performance" chart is just pure bullshit. They simply get paid by Intel. The "average" is totally meaningless - it doesn't reflect average workload at all. The substitute of SYSMark by some custom-made office tasks for "not work in Vista" is laughable.

The more accurate comparison between E6600 and X2 6000+ is this: if you do media/3D processing, then go for C2D; if you do scientific or engineering, go for K8; if you do office applications, then go for the cheaper one. For games, it depends, but generally buy the cheaper one and spend the saving on a better video card.

See, that's the only excuse you fanboys have. Reviewers paid off by Intel this, Enron that (LOL thanks for the laughs Penix). When faced with facts, you dismiss them.

I actually believe Xbitlabs to be a credible source of information, if you have ANY proof that they (or Anandtech or THG) are being paid off by Intel, then please, show it for everyone to see. Otherwise STFU and stop spreading FUD like our resident Doc.

That chart is just a summary of the benchmarks made into a 'performance index' form. It takes into account a wide range of workloads, and yes, while the X2 6000+ will beat the E6600 in certain applications, it doesn't take away the fact that the E6600 is the faster processor [b]overall.[/b]

I stand by my assessment that the E6600 is the faster processor, runs much cooler, and will end up costing slightly less after the April 22 pricecuts. Win, win, win. AMD has lost this round, accept it and move on.

Yes, I was talking about system power usage. For the same amount of memory and the same video cards, an Intel E6600 takes about 20W more power than an AMD X2 4800+ at idle and 40W more under load. The E6600 performs better in most (but not all) cases, but is also twice more expensive (both CPU and MB).


where do you get this data? Tech report said the opposite. At idle, E6600 consumes 121W while 5000+ 65nm(can't find data for 4800+) consumes 123W. At peak E6600 consumes 163W while 5000+ consumes 187W. Over a particular program execution completion, E6600 consumes 8555J while 5000+ consumes 9381J!
http://www.techreport.com/reviews/2007q1/cpus/index.x?pg=13


Penryn will consume more power than E6600. Barcelona, however, will stay in the same power envelope as K8 X2.


well, I'm not sure whether you do not follow up on the latest tech trend or blinded by your AMD faith, Intel's 45nm process allows it to increase the frequency while maintaining the thermal envelop. You will be really disappointed when Wolfdale/Penryn is releasen because it will be in the same TDP as the Conroe/Merom's.


That is, a north bridge with 1.3x higher FSB clock rate and (presumably) 1.2x higher voltage will take 1.3*1.44=1.872, or about 87% more power.


i'm not sure which background you are from, I'd really wish the those electric calculation is that easy in my college time. And further more, do you really know what % of the FSB power consumption compare to the overall chip?

If AMD wastes more energy on an iffecient PSU it isn't going to waste less than Intel with a more efficient one. Also very funny that you would pair a $50 mb with a high end chip, and even funnier that you before claim AMD is more efficient with a certain chip yet later compare with AMD Inefficient 6000.
