Quad core K10 for $230

65 watt, 20% faster than 2.33 GHZ Intel quad, $230. Now, one can have a 8 way workstation for $1000.

Latest AMD SPEC_int_2006 score (8 cores, 2.5GHZ)): 102, Intel (8 cores, 3GHZ): 60.3 (

Test date: Jul-2007). AMD leads by 69%.


AMD SPEC_FP_2006 score (16 cores, 2.5GHZ): 160, Intel (16 cores, 3GHZ): 113.


The 2.5GHZ AMD has a massive 41.59% lead over the 3GHZ Core 2 quad.

A 1.8GHZ AMD beats the 3GHZ Core 2 quad by a narrow margin.

Just to be clear before everyone pounces on my good man Sharikou for his math error, he is actually comparing it to existing 8-way dual core machines. Thus 4-way quad core is equal to old 8-way dual core!

How do I know this? I have been reading this blog for too long.

20% faster? The 1.7 GHz quad isn't even as fast as Intel's slowest quad core.


Sharidouche, did you get fired from Intel because you can't do math?

PS: Intel's Quadcore which runs circles around that $230 AMD processor:

If you don't want the Xeon, Intel, unlike AMD does offer a true desktop Quad processor.

Hey Sharidouche,

The specINT you linked to is 8 Xeon Cores, not 16....

There you have it folks, There you have it.

His PHd is useless, he can't even compare the right benchmarks LOL. Only AMD fannies will believe that non-sense. HAHAHHA

Comparing 16 cores to 8 cores AHHAHAHAHAHHAHHAHA
You farking idiot.

SHARIKOU SELF OWNAGE. HIGHER THEN EVER BEFORE!!!!

Just so everyone is clear....

Sharikock just owned himself by comparing 8 Xeon cores with 16 Barcelona cores.

Barcelona gets raped in both SpecINT and SpecFP in 1P and 2P server space. Do you guys know what the server majority is......thats right, 1P and 2P...that's where the $$$$$$$$$$ is at.

AMD is a lost cause.

HAHAHAHHA I like that you changed your original post but ITS STILL WRONG!!!!!

You keep self owning your self....

You are compare 4 core 2 chip barcelona system to a 2 core 4 chip Intel Xeon 2 year old Prescot

LOL LOL LOL LOL

You are a joke, you keep self owning and you keep becoming the laughing stock of this community.

GOOD JOB Sharidouche.

I always read Sharidouche's blog for entertainment, and this assclown never fails to deliver.

He was never relevant, but now it's downright embarrassing for this asshat.

Holy shit this fucking retard gets worse and worse with every post...


I guess the unemployment checks are running out and he is getting worried...

This is so funny. The SPECInt scores WERE FOR 8 Tulsa cores but the SPECfp scores are for Harpertown

Tulsa = 71xx
Harpertown = 73xx


Maybe you should all try to separate the companies from their "fans." Sharikou undoubtedly has NOTHING to do with AMD or Intel. Stop acting like it.

And just like I said before SPEC scores vary widely depending on the submitter and the HW they use.

Actually Sharidouche has nothing to do with ANYTHING in the real world.

The question you haven't answered is: Can AMD make money selling at these prices? I think we will see when AMD reports earnings that it can not.

Buh-bye AMD... (sniff)

PS: Nice job trying to compare an 8-way Intel setup with a twice as many AMD cores. PhD? My ass.
