More than three times the number of happy users for the E6600: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115003

Of course, no one wants AMD's garbage now when they can just buy a quad core Q6600 for $266. That is, by far, the best bang for the buck.

Selling like hot cakes because they are priced like hot cakes.

What a business sell low performing old technology for cheap and lose money on every one.

Good business there!

I guess that is all the can do as the Barcelona still got speed and power problems and is still no where to be found.

Got to fill your multi-billion dollar with something, might as well be hot cakes.

Newsflash: AMD leaving semiconductor business and focusing on its new Hot cake business....the reason...more profit.......

To the horror of numerous AMD fanbois everywhere AMD just announced that it has left the semi conductor business for a more profitable venture in hot cake making.

Henri says that their hot cakes will be 30% bigger than martha stewart's and will give better dough to taste compared to other competitors using the same ingredients.

In typical AMD fashion no actual hot cake was there for a taste test and chose to instead use power point presentations with simulated hot cakes to promote this new shift. THe thought of AMD producing hot cakes left their once tech "savvy" amd fans salivating...

Searching the internet sites the AMD fanbois have quickly shifted from bashing a far more superior intel processor arch in C2D to now bashing martha stewart and her baking capability they provide AMD's chocolate chip hot cake technology as proof of their superiority which they call IMC (inside more chocolate).

Though analyst have said otherwise AMD insists that their baking yields are good though they have stated that they will be selling hot cakes for revenue and will not see sufficient supply for the next quarter or two .

The drama continues in AMD camp.

Just because I prefer AMD Opteron's in my servers doesn't make me hate Intel.?

AMD and intel don't make garbage, they make technology.
No one in their right mind would write off INTEL or AMD or SUN or IBM or any other cpu maker to totally change the face of computing, overnight! at the expense of their competitors, its a huge market and every % of market share translates into huge potential profits, time will tell!

Did you notice that at that price Intel is selling TWO 2.4GHz chips for just $70 more than one?

Things that make you go

WTF!

In other news AMD using 4x4 and 2900xt in crossfire to make more hot cakes.

Sources say that the heat produced from the nuclear reactor.....i mean AMD desktop..... should lead to more hot cakes produced in lesser time compared to their competitor.

After the release of C2D the K8s have been collecting dust on store shelves. AMD had the great idea to use those CPUs and GPUs as make shift ovens to deliver more hotcakes to customers.

Henri was very satified with the outcome and continues boasting on powerpoint ofcourse that the hotcakes AMD generates will be 30% better than their competitor using the same ingredients no doubt taking a dig at martha stewart and her hot cake manufacturing ability.

Lets also look at the not soo happy users......from the same link......

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductReview.aspx?Item=N82E16819103773&SortField=0&SummaryType=0&Pagesize=10&SelectedRating=3&Page=

Ok this cpu is a great price for the 3ghz that you get,but all you AMD fans need to let go, it doesnt even compair to intell.

The size,heat,overclocking is weak,and the price, till a couple a months ago.At stock speed it couldnt beat my old E6600,now i have a E6750 SEE YA!

Made on very outdated 90nm Can't overclock High price for older technology.

It is a very touchy CPU. It has a low heat threshold and doesn't upclock well either. Not made all that well...

This chip does offer a reasonable price to performance ratio however why not grab an e6600 and OC it to 3.0 ghz just with the stock cooling and watch it beat up this poor puppy?

If you get this as one core expecting it to beat the E6700, then you'll probably be disappointed, but if you get two of them then you will be satisfied.

All of those bashing the Core 2 Duo, how about you actually get the fanboy-ism out of your thick skulls and look at every credible review on performance on the net? Intel has clearly won with the Core 2 Duo, and AMD/ATi is lagging behind now just squeezing every last thing they can out of fast aging AMD64 line.

If you want a hotter running CPU, with an aging architecture, go with this. If you want a cooler running, more overclocker friendly chip, definitely get a Core 2. Even the lowest models overclocked can kill this overpriced junk in a lot of things...

Sounds like 6000+ is the winner of the customer choice alrite.........

I think we all know who is the hot guy :)

On the temperature side, we noted via Intel TAT software after 15 minutes of 4x Prime95 and the indiscrete Intel CPU cooler delivered with our model of the QX6700, the following results: 69°C with the QX6700 and 66°C with the Q6600.

AMD 3.0Ghz 50ºC 90nm
Intel Quad Q6700 66ºC 65nm
Intel Dual X6800 56ºC 65nm

At least Intel processors have the performance/temperature ratio correct.


Also Intel might have issues in 64 bit operating systems.

New Microsoft Operating system will be native 64 bits, so it will even extend the lead of the AMD processors in that area:

32bit to 64bit performace increase

nice attempt in painting the heat picture. Why not you compare the FX74 then? or use the E6750 which is not only beating the 6000 in performance (http://www.anandtech.com/cpuchipsets/intel/showdoc.aspx?i=3038&p=6), also operate at lower power. (http://xtreview.com/review208.htm). In the link also contain some other information such as 6000+ opertae at 59C, while even 6800 operate at 54C ... care to share the link that show that 6000+ operate at 50C?

Also Intel might have issues in 64 bit operating systems.

New Microsoft Operating system will be native 64 bits, so it will even extend the lead of the AMD processors in that area:

32bit to 64bit performace increase


well, it is not because of the Intel CPU 64 bit issue, but just that it has some CPU optimization that target the 32 bit only. Anyway, another nice attempt to paint the false sense of 64 bit overall performance though. User care about the absolute performance, not the relatiave performance from 32 to 64 bit. AMD can have 30% increase from performance point of 40 to 52; and it still lose out to Intel CPU that have performane point of 60 at 32 bit and 70 points at 64 bit. (those points are plugged from the air, just wanna illustrate the absolute performance that Intel has over AMD's CPU)

Today's top secret memo from Paul O to his Lieutenants

From the dark recesses in my broken mind, I have finally found real fear. I am anxious to escape the madness of this monopoly institution and once again enter the sanctuary of my excellent stock options. They call it the Phenom or Barcelona or K10 and runs a next generation CPU Quad core natively at insane speeds. I have listed some of the following key formulas. But I must go! I hear them coming!

75% BUY Intel E6600 and only 25% wanted AMD 6000+

Clearly a review of user comments at Newegg indicate that the 6000+ dual has stepping problems, power sucking problems and overheating problems as well as performance problems.

A quick review of the Intel E6600 customers, which are many, indicate happy impressed customers who are satisfied with there good fortune to own an Intel E6600.

A statistical snapshot at newegg indicate out of 1557 customers that 1445 users bought and rated the Intel E6600 a 5 star purchase.

378 amd fans rated and bought the 600+ a 5 star while the rest of the 206 purchasers found AMD faulty, too hot, and too confusing.

Out of 1982 cpu buyers at newegg 75% prefer Intel E6600 compared to 25% who suffered and bought the athlon 6000+ power sucker that uses 92% more power than E6600.

75% prefer Intel E6600 while only 25% bought the inferior AMD x2 6000+ spaceheater.

Pancakes or not we can clearly see that more people buy Intel than AMD cpus at newegg.

The Intel E6600 clearly puts every X2 product to shame while the new E6850 shows the X2 line to be outdated like a K6 with a antique 64bit SSE, no shared cache and an ancient 3 issues wide core.

3/4 ths of the cpu buyers at newegg prefer Intel cpus to AMD.

So as the AMD fanboys fud, spin, rant and rave just remember they are a very small minority representing just a handful of misinformed product users. They might be vocal but they are few.

3/4 of us prefer and buy Intel and are a vocal majority of informed users who support our economy and are setting the direction that our technology takes.

BUY Intel energy saving cpus, platforms, and video solutions just like three quarters of us do at newegg.

next generation CPU Quad core natively at insane speeds.

Yep, it's so fast it's insane. 1.9ghz and 2Ghz! Never before has a CPU run so fast! The OEMs have seen Barcelona and they don't like what they see: http://roborat64.blogspot.com/2007/08/oems-ignoring-barcelona.html

ONEEXPERT, is that an oxymoron or what?

If majority rules please site to me in the total CPU market, pick any segment; mobile, desktop, server what is AMD's market share and what has the trend been for the last two quarters.

DOn't site stupid facts like a single vendor or line item. That tells me more about what retards buy at newegg or retail then it tells me about the overall quality of the product.

Go back to your moms basement okay

Penryn will scale to 4Ghz before Nehalem launches in H2'08. http://www.xbitlabs.com/news/cpu/display/20070817173238.html

What does AMD have? Barcelona Brown Turd Edition stuck at 2Ghz. They'll be lucky to hit 2.8Ghz by the time Intel has a 4GHz Penryn thanks to the revolutionary high-k 45nm process. Nehalem is also set to debut at 4Ghz for minimum. This process allows for a tenfold reduction in leakage. This is unique to Intel; AMD's 45nm comes late next year (One year behind Intel) and even then it's not high-k! When Intel said they're years ahead of the competition with the 45nm high-k process they weren't kidding.

Oneexpert keeps lying about AMD performance. In real performance Core 2 E6550 frags 4x4 3Ghz: http://www.xbitlabs.com/images/cpu/core2extreme-qx6850/excel.png

6400+ is just 200mhz faster than 6000+, so still far slower than the 4x4. Clearly, the 6400+ is prefragged by the E6550 and up. AMD's ancient three issues wide core with 64bit SSE and no shared cache of any kind is certainly showing it's age.

AMD X2-6400+ outperforms C2Ds

Intel is in a disparate struggle to try and maintain a performance lead but is losing ground fast to the superior forces of AMD.

AMD has been in relentless performance pursuit chasing intel right out of the semiconductor market.
AMDs release of the 3.2 ghz X2 6400+ has caused intel total humiliation.

Intel has pinned all its hopes on a 45 nm die shrink to halt the continual erosion of its performance crown but most experts agree it will not be enough to save intel from the superior AMD design technologies.

MORE BANG FOR THE BUCK$$$$$$
Athlon 64 X2 6400+ Black Edition Reviewed
Posted by: Chris_Tom on Tuesday, August 14, 2007 - 04:41 PM
CPUs HKEPC Hardware has reviewed the Athlon 64 X2 6400+ Black Edition. It comes boxed, through the channel only. Anyway, it appears to be about 2% to 12% faster than the 6000+, and it may just best the E6750, and gave the E6850 a run for the money besting it in sciencemark 2.0 totally.

The amazing X2-6400+ will sell around $220 while its aging competition the e6800 is $1045 and the e6850 is $286 so the X2-6400+ is totally more bang for the buck and it humiliates the aging c2d pentium 3s.

AMD has conquered the price performance race with a full fast line of superior cpu products, platforms, and video solutions.

Intel is left with only a couple of cpus in the performance race but they are power hungry, very expensive cpus that no one can afford to buy.

The release of the X2-6400+ along with the quad barcelona has caused the unthinkable actions at intel, they may actually have to update there ancient technology to survive.

Intel failed to make the comeback they promised when they released the c2d line up due to old antique designs and bad platforms. Intels promise to crush AMD with the c2d line has backfired and now AMD is crushing intel. Intels reliance on the antique pentium 3 designs appears to be the root cause of the company's eminent demise.

AMD continues to provide innovative energy saving cpus and platforms while increasing market share every quarter.

It appears AMD will stand alone as the most popular leading semiconductor technology supplier by the end of 2007.

You can count on AMD, IBM, and VIA to meet your future computing needs with state of the art semiconductors and solutions.

BUY AMD energy saving performance cpus, platforms, and video solutions.

Very, very, SAD! How low the leader of the fanbois has gone to make a posting about positive NEWEGG feedback.

Yes, AMD makes decent midrange products and I happen to use one of them in my current machines.

But the issue is that AMD is BLEEDING by selling at a loss. A market AMD used to have a following in, the enthusiast market, is not GONE for them.

Nobody wants a Prescot, err, I mean 6400+ that is already stretched to its limit.

Bottom line: AMD needs to do something and fast. If it sits in paper launch mode on Phenom for too long or if Phenom phlops it could be game over. This would leave us, for the most part, with only one CPU and one GPU maker.
