K10 is faster than Intel Quad even in integer performance

Tom Yager points out that if you use GCC compiler, then AMD's Barcelona is 9% faster than Intel in integer performance. Those high integer performance numbers Intel achieved was attained with Intel compilers. Notably, Intel is not a well known compiler vendor. Most developers use GCC or Microsoft compiler to ensure language compliance. It is doubtable that Intel compiler correctly implements those complex C++ grammar and semantics.

Negative...
This states: Intel Quad has 20% better performance.
"Intel's butt-kicking compiler scored quad-core Xeon an earnest 20 percent lead over Quad-Core Opteron on SPECint_rate2006 (peak)."

Later on, this sentance states that AMD caught up with Intel to where it only had a 9% butt-kicking...
So, no, AMD Quad DOES NOT beat the Intel...
"when the playing field was leveled a bit by using the gcc open source compilers, AMD pulled to within 9 percent of Core 2 Xeon on SPECint_rate2006 (base). "

Sorry!

What a joke of a blog. People are too used to your lying retarded comments sharikou to care anymore. Telling the truth might bring back some interest again though.

You can't even get something as simple as quotes right can you Sharidouche...

Nehalem benchmarked:

40% over Core 2 which is already 40% faster than Phleanom. As soon as Nehalem enters the market AMD will BK.

AMD BK Q4'08.

Anand is a paid pumper of Intel. The only tests he did were media encoding . In server performance, Intel is years behind.

"As soon as Nehalem enters the market AMD will BK." Another version of this is "As soon as the 620 HP Corvette ZR-1 enters the market Ford will BK" Have you seen any Intel Vetts selling down where the ASP market price is determined? Intel subsidizes the low end Duo and Quads with the sells of the upper end Duo and Quad Extremes. Those low end units still come in systems costing 100-200 more than the AMD model of comparable power. The QX extremes cost more discounted than the ASP desktop or laptop today. If Intel can't sell a version of the Nehalem in the 200 dollar range it isn't going to have the mass market impact you think. As I’ve said before there is a glut of CPU power in the world at large. The “got to have the latest crowd” does not keep the lights on at either Intel or AMD.

You douchebag. Nehalem's memory controller is better than AMD's and it's cache access is faster. How do you think AMD is going to compare in server performance? GG uninstall. #ragequit

Intel CPU is only better in media encoding. But AMD will soon publish an SDK to use the GPU for encoding, with 100x the performance when compared to Intel.

Sharidouche you are FUCKED IN THE HEAD.

A mere year ago, Anand was your best friend, as he was very much supporting the Opteron.

Now that AMD is back behind the 8 ball, he is a paid pumper?

You are an un-paid moron who can't get simple quotes right.

Go away. This blog is about as useful as the sperm your mom and dad wasted on you.
