Intel Penryn flaky

Penryn won't work with SLI.

K10 won't work with anything, because it doesn't exist.

I'm sure racist Sharikou is happy about AMD's recent dash for cash.

Again, since Sharikou can't or won't read, the article actually says that Penryn is fine... it's just that Nvidia's chipsets are not 100% compatible with it again.

Of course, with Intel chips you get choice of having several different vendors give you chipsets with different capabilities. AMD likes to make that choice for you since you can get Phenom with an AMD chipset or and AMD chipset.*


* And by "get Phenom" I mean see powerpoint slides since nobody will be able to actually get one for quite a while, including all those evil review sites that somehow fail to follow the AMD cult line that Phenom is magically faster than c2d while trailing it in every benchmark.

Didnt you say AMD is superior?
Why would Penryn have to do SLi then?

And you can only get Intel chipsets for Penryn until nVidia gets it working.
nVidia will drop their HT3 chipset soon.

But the even funnier thing is that Barcelona works with every nVidia chipset that sits under Socket F.

If Sharikou is just going to rile you up maybe you should just not comment.

Concerning power consumption it would be true if you replace Penryn with Kentsfield.

t all started when our (former porn) star, Sharicum slurper, woke up in a imaginery desert. It was the tenth time it had happened. Feeling abundantly frustrated, Sharicum slurper groped a wolverine, thinking it would make him feel better (but as usual, it did not). Giggling like schoolgirl, he realized that his beloved pink dildo of shame was missing! Immediately he called his fundamentalist, guilt-dispensing friend, OneDipshitHomo. Sharicum slurper had known OneDipshitHomo for (plus or minus) 11,000 years, the majority of which were striking ones. OneDipshitHomo was unique. He was smart though sometimes a little... stupid. Sharicum slurper called him anyway, for the situation was urgent.

OneDipshitHomo picked up to a very glad Sharicum slurper. OneDipshitHomo calmly assured him that most albino cats grimace before mating, yet man-eating capybaras usually earnestly yawn *after* mating. He had no idea what that meant; he was only concerned with distracting Sharicum slurper. Why was OneDipshitHomo trying to distract Sharicum slurper? Because he had snuck out from Sharicum slurper's with the pink dildo of shame only seven days prior. It was a enchanting little pink dildo of shame... how could he resist?

It didn't take long before Sharicum slurper got back to the subject at hand: his pink dildo of shame. OneDipshitHomo yawned. Relunctantly, OneDipshitHomo invited him over, assuring him they'd find the pink dildo of shame. Sharicum slurper grabbed his refrigerator and disembarked immediately. After hanging up the phone, OneDipshitHomo realized that he was in trouble. He had to find a place to hide the pink dildo of shame and he had to do it aptly. He figured that if Sharicum slurper took the 'modded' Civic, he had take at least eight minutes before Sharicum slurper would get there. But if he took the sybian? Then OneDipshitHomo would be abnormally screwed.

Before he could come up with any reasonable ideas, OneDipshitHomo was interrupted by two oafish cum spitting cobras that were lured by his pink dildo of shame. OneDipshitHomo grimaced; 'Not again', he thought. Feeling stunned, he skillfully reached for his ninja star and fearlessly backhanded every last one of them. Apparently this was an adequate deterrent--the discouraged critters began to scurry back toward the foxy forest, squealing with discontent. He exhaled with relief. That's when he heard the sybian rolling up. It was Sharicum slurper.

----o0o----

As he pulled up, he felt a sense of urgency. He had had to make an unscheduled stop at The Salvation Army to pick up a 12-pack of potatos, so he knew he was running late. With a careful leap, Sharicum slurper was out of the sybian and went indiscriminately jaunting toward OneDipshitHomo's front door. Meanwhile inside, OneDipshitHomo was panicking. Not thinking, he tossed the pink dildo of shame into a box of live hand grenades and then slid the box behind his giraffe. OneDipshitHomo was pleased but at least the pink dildo of shame was concealed. The doorbell rang.

'Come in,' OneDipshitHomo scandalously purred. With a heroic push, Sharicum slurper opened the door. 'Sorry for being late, but I was being chased by some pestering zealous...zealot in a time machine,' he lied. 'It's fine,' OneDipshitHomo assured him. Sharicum slurper took a seat ridiculously far from where OneDipshitHomo had hidden the pink dildo of shame. OneDipshitHomo cringed trying unsuccessfully to hide his nervousness. 'Uhh, can I get you anything?' he blurted. But Sharicum slurper was distracted. Happy as a frickin' monkey, OneDipshitHomo noticed a dimwitted look on Sharicum slurper's face. Sharicum slurper slowly opened his mouth to speak.

'...What's that smell?'

OneDipshitHomo felt a stabbing pain in his shin when Sharicum slurper asked this. In a moment of disbelief, he realized that he had hidden the pink dildo of shame right by his oscillating fan. 'Wh-what? I don't smell anything..!' A lie. A clueless look started to form on Sharicum slurper's face. He turned to notice a box that seemed clearly out of place. 'Th-th-those are just my grandma's gerbils from when she used to have pet South American hissing sloths. She, uh...dropped 'em by here earlier'. Sharicum slurper nodded with fake acknowledgement...then, before OneDipshitHomo could react, Sharicum slurper carefully lunged toward the box and opened it. The pink dildo of shame was plainly in view.

Sharicum slurper stared at OneDipshitHomo for what what must've been four nanoseconds. A few unsatisfying minutes later, OneDipshitHomo groped flamboyantly in Sharicum slurper's direction, clearly desperate. Sharicum slurper grabbed the pink dildo of shame and bolted for the door. It was locked. OneDipshitHomo let out a saucy chuckle. 'If only you hadn't been so protective of that thing, none of this would have happened, Sharicum slurper,' he rebuked. OneDipshitHomo always had been a little abrasive, so Sharicum slurper knew that reconciliation was not an option; he needed to escape before OneDipshitHomo did something crazy, like... start chucking carrots at him or something. Giggling like schoolgirl, he gripped his pink dildo of shame tightly and made a dash toward the window, diving headlong through the glass panels.

OneDipshitHomo looked on, blankly. 'What the hell? That seemed excessive. The other door was open, you know.' Silence from Sharicum slurper. 'And to think, I varnished that window frame three days ago...it never ends!' Suddenly he felt a tinge of concern for Sharicum slurper. 'Oh. You ..okay?' Still silence. OneDipshitHomo walked over to the window and looked down. Sharicum slurper was gone.

----o0o----

Just yonder, Sharicum slurper was struggling to make his way through the disease-infested jungle behind OneDipshitHomo's place. Sharicum slurper had severely hurt his scalp during the window incident, and was starting to lose strength. Another pack of feral cum spitting cobras suddenly appeared, having caught wind of the pink dildo of shame. One by one they latched on to Sharicum slurper. Already weakened from his injury, Sharicum slurper yielded to the furry onslaught and collapsed. The last thing he saw before losing consciousness was a buzzing horde of cum spitting cobras running off with his pink dildo of shame.

But then God came down with His smart smile and restored Sharicum slurper's pink dildo of shame. Feeling displeased, God smote the cum spitting cobras for their injustice. Then He got in His hippie-pleasing hybrid vehicle and zipped away with the fortitude of 200,000 Indonesian devil cats running from a teensy pack of 3-legged wallabies. Sharicum slurper tripped with joy when he saw this. His pink dildo of shame was safe. It was a good thing, too, because in ten minutes his favorite TV show, Seinfeld, was going to come on (followed immediately by 'When spotted wolf hamsters meet unborn fetus'). Sharicum slurper was thrilled. And so, everyone except OneDipshitHomo and a few gun-toting disease-carrying chipmunks lived blissfully happy, forever after

Everyone with a brain knows nvidia chipsets are junk.
