    I have a thing against tomshardware. They are soo biased to intel they only ever mention AMD in a negative light.

    Because we all know AMD is sooo much better than intel Oh wait intel has 80% of the processor market share gosh darn i guess everyone likes buying expensive crap processors.

    What's your point? Internet Explorer has 99% of the market share. If you want more performance per pound/dollar, then AMD it is.

    My point is the market is not wrong. If intels where worse than amd you would quiclky find the market share for amd increasing but instead it is still shrinking... I know this is a hard concept for amd fanboys to grasp...

    what are you 12?

    you need to stfu once in your life and realize that the market isn't always right...microsoft for instance...definetly not the best, has 99% of the market. *nix, *bsd are both way more stable (not to mention free) yet they have marginal use in the desktop area. So, why don't you go take a basic economics class and stop spewing all over this thread, it's about overclocking a processor to 5ghz...not your stupid flamewar.


    as for the processor, i'd like to see if it actually ran anything stable, all it showed was the bios, no way of really telling if it was stable beyond 4ghz

    as for toms be biased, hell yeah they are, but so is almost every other hardware review site on the planet, best bet is to know what you need and not read crap articles on this and that. (well...they were all right on rambus sucking though )
    PHP and XML
    Let's talk about SAX

    i have had both systems AMD and Intel based......I found the AMD ones good but not good to overclock since they gave out too much heat.. My friend has a couple of burnt AMD processor where as he ran the intel processor without the fan and i worked fine for quite some time ..

    Yeah windows is such a horrible product for the home users. You know XP pretty much never crashes even your grandmother can operate it. You can play games on it, pop a cd in wait a bit and voila. You have support for all the newest hardware. Microsoft is the best for 99% of people and this is why they have 99% of market share.

    Now you know *nix is just perfect for the home user! Everyone wants to wait months for their new hardware to be supported oh and i want to see you run alll the newest games on there. PS Xeyes does not count.

    ZerOrDie, STFU.

    Marketshare means nothing. It means one has better PR than the other. Your argument about MS is simply worthless. The reason MS is doing so well is that people have gotten used to using Windows. Sure, in most cases, Windows is an easier OS to learn and operate. I won't argue that point. That doesn't mean it's the better system.

    You must understand that "better" is completely relative when it comes to computing needs. AMD has had some heat problems in the past. I won't argue there either. But when I can buy an AMD chip for $200 USD cheaper and have the same speeds and in some cases better performance... I only think for about 2 seconds before choosing. I have an AMD chip at home and I've never had a single problem with it. My next chip will be an AMD too.

    Besides... performance on various chips is all relative too. AMD trumps Intel on various benchmarks. Intel whoops up on others. What if you only did one or the other.... then HEY... why not buy a chip that suits your needs?

    OH, and getting back to your Windows argument... let's step back 4 years when MS was producing wonders like ME and 98. BSOD city, my friend. *nix users have been crash free since the late 70's.

    STFU.

    PM a mod and they would glady remove this crudfest.

    PS: ZerOrDie is wrong. Why do MS and IE have so much market share? Because they come preinstalled and why would Joe Computer bother changing?

    Sorry vasanth, I'm going to let this sit here, since ZerOrDie has so graciously taken this chance to remind us what a moron he is.

    Where did you get the statistics from?

    But when I can buy an AMD chip for $200 USD cheaper and have the same speeds and in some cases better performance
    well, according to pricewatch, the current equivalent processors:

    $395 Athlon 64 3400
    $394 - Pentium 4 3.2GHz 800

    your argument is now mute. Also, from a collage of the reviews I have looked at, a P4 and AMD at the same Performance rating, non overclocked, pretty much are head to head with eachother, w/ only certain applications favoring either(PS has better support for P4, business winstone tests support AMD).

    Take into consideration that in order to overclock an AMD at all, you have to fork over another 50 dollars for a good HSF unit while I can OC a P4 a good half a gighertz with the retail fan, and you get what every overclocking site will tell you:

    P4 > AMD for overclocking

    however:

    SETI /Folding/etc.:

    AMD > P4

    the shame is, I used to like AMD when they used to be 200 dollars less for the same performance.
