quote flame_boi13The i7 920 and up were usually just as bad or even worse with power after OC'ing past about 3.6ghz. Granted they're probably still faster at those clocks of course.Well lets look at the bright side. Finally, computer users who buy 1000w+ PSU, this is your chance for a CPU that that allows you to show off the true power of your PSU.
quote The SmithThe reason I asked, was because it's said to be a bit cheaper then the 955, so, I was curious as to how powerful it was.quote ChaosfireAMD unfortunately has sent only its flagship.the 4100 kind of looks worth my time, how does it compare to a 955 be?
My guess would be that they are approximately equal since there is a 400MHz difference. The now very great Turbo Core should help it to pull ahead though, and if the application can use the newer AVX, FMA4 or XOP, the 4100 is going to have a big advantage.
I will see if Neoseeker can get its hands on one. Stay tuned!
