Post subject: AMD Phenom II Black Edition for Gaming

As most of you know, I'm an avid Intel fan but a couple of years ago, I decided to try AMD (again after some early disappointing years) to see how AMD is performing. After the upgrade from Pent4, I went to AMD's 6000 chipset and was surprised to see how well my machine has performed since the update. The AMD chipset set up easy, is fast and performs quite well with no hiccups of any kind, so I read the following story from Eweek.com with keen interest...

AMD Phenom II Black Edition Desktop Processors Aimed at Gamers

By: Nathan Eddy
2010-12-07

The processors offer the company's Turbo Core, a performance boosting technology that shifts frequency speeds.

Chip maker Advanced Micro Devices announced two "Black Edition" processors, including the company’s flagship six-core desktop processor. These processors join AMD's 8-series chipset and recently launched AMD Radeon HD 6000 series graphics for PCs that deliver enhanced high-definition experiences in 3D with GPU-accelerated multimedia performance. With these latest technologies, gamers and PC enthusiasts can enjoy the “ultimate visual experience” on a new PC featuring Vision Black Technology from AMD, according to the company.

The AMD Phenom II X6 1100T is AMD's new desktop flagship processor, offering advanced processing features like unlocked clock multipliers, Turbo Core technology and six-core performance. The company’s Phenom II X2 565 Black Edition is described by AMD as an “affordable processor for enthusiasts looking for performance-tuning capabilities at amazing clock speeds.”

Turbo Core is a performance boosting technology that automatically switches from six cores to three turbocharged cores for applications that just need raw speed over multiple cores. While in Turbo Core mode, the Phenom II X6 1090T shifts frequency speed from 3.2GHz on six cores to 3.6GHz on three cores, making it the fastest processor AMD has ever created.

Post subject: Re: AMD Phenom II Black Edition for Gaming

Cool. I am looking for something to set up to fly FSX. From the info I have gathered the biggest single factor affect how smoothly FSX runs is core speed. The newer Intel I5 and I7's rate higher than anything AMD has put out as of yet, including the X6 1100T.

I am trading in my trusty ole AMD Athlon 64 4000+ for a new I7-875K unlocked (Intel follows AMD's lead on unlocking processors.).

My understanding is that I should be able to get 4 cores to 3.9GHz to 4.1GHz fairly easy (games do not use more than 4 cores according to "Tom").

I have everything, I have just been sitting here looking at it all LOL...

LOL Slow, the worst that can happen is you'll burn the house down... (kidding of course).

Keep in mind building the machine is the easy part, it's loading all the software that takes the longest. Did you "Ghost" or "make an Image" of your HD prior to building the new machine? Wink

And after.
We all keep saying we're going to do it and only the bright ones do (not me, sadly.., *sigh*).

Ghost your finished disk so you can re-format at the slightest hint of trouble and your lovely machine will be right back where you started with all the crap that took you the whole day to install and configure.
