What is AMD's best chip?


Intel's is a quad clocked at 3.2GHZ. I went to AMD's site but it's not friendly, so can somebody please just post what their best quad iis clocked at? (stock speed)

From my experience the best performing (not effeciant) QUAD FX platform will out perform any phenom but im sure other people will think different. Its not supported anymore anyway so the best available chip would be a phenom. But all this is goin to change in a few months with the new AMD stuff.

oh ok wow they really do need to upgrade considering that their best quad is only 2.6GHZ. That's the clock speed I have for a simple quad.

Yea but we will see Quads at 3.0 and up from AMD in a few months or maybe summer of next year.

if you are thinking of upgrading, wait until deneb, then AMD will be a bit more competitive in terms of performance.

Perhaps you should replace "best" with "highest clock speed"?

By next summer they should have their quads up to 4ghz minimum.

That ability doesn't exist here and besides I do think that the higher the clock speed the better. Don't you?

Not really.

That's what I've always learned/heard anyway. I think there's still something to be said for an on-chip memory controller.

Heh, don't worry about it - its not to say it isn't the best chip. It just depends on the usage of the chip. Large number crunching should benefit from increased speed, although for personal use its probably a less reliable benefit.

That said, this is an OC forum - and we do like to up the speeds even if it doesn't really benefit much.

The Phenom 9950BE 125W is their best chip and its Vcc 1.05-1.30v Icc 96A running at 2.6G CPU and 2.0G NB/HT.

4.3/4.0G Deneb -> Hype = 51% hidden special detail + 49% select marketing. Ignore this or you'll just frustrate your own expectations when the product launches.

3.3-3.7G Deneb -> now thats more realistic and certainly on for day to day use.

Day to day as in below safe voltage and general cooling/case limits, running daily with default stability for over 4-5 weeks with no change.

Not to mention the Octo-cores that are also in the works.

I didn't know that - I wonder if its worth it though. Most programs aren't even properly designed for dual core yet.
