I remembered there was a Dell Duo computer with a keyboard, and a touchscreen laptop screen. 2009 release. INTEL atom, 1GB, 320Gb hhd, etc.
I got curious if AMD was to put a VIA 1.2 Ghz 4 core, 2 Gb, 40 SDD... Would that sell better?
Agreed. The computer parts can make a decent gaming computer for $900ish.
FX 4core - $100 - $120,
Cooling - Cosair 70 ($70 -80) or Nautica AMD edition ($70 - $100)
HDD $80 (500Gb, 5400rpm),
4Gb memory $30,CD drive (free, burrow from old computer),
7770 graphic card $130 - $150 (480 Steam cores?) , or Ti 550/560 (196 CUDA core?) $150
The Case pick $40 - $100,
PSU 520watt $50 -$90.
Total $900 - $1000 (+) ; if you are upgrading the parts)
it is good that the AMD processors is satisfying the supply-demand ratio. If it beats i5 (65 watts, 2.4ghz) I am amazed. But the processor is power-hungary (4/6/8 cores @ 125 watts, 4.3 Ghz(max)) - needs powerful coolants systems to lower heat tempretures...
Still the price is good for overclockers or average joes that builds an above-average+ gaming computer.
AMD wins with 1.5 - 2.8 ghz E350 processors with 15 - 35 watts, with 80 radeon cores (230 - 450mhz) ; which beats the INTEL's Atom, Celeron, and the pentium (released until 2006 editions)...
AMD is popular to provide the majority of people with a technology gadget. In my opinion that is a successful enterpreneurship - to market and sell processors, and survive even through they are pitted against an INTEL conglomerate. AMD wins.
8 cores is good for high-computing data crunching for supercomputing not for the high end gaming. I7 has 8 threads, 4 cores, speedstep, HT, etc vs AMD 8cores, 8threads, etc... obiviously when a processor has a certain size, placement of level cache(s), etc the spacing and the watts used determines the speed or the efficency of the processor.
An computer with AMD Fx4 and 7770 graphics card, etc - makes a decent gaming computer for $800.
I7 OR I5 is more affordable than the Xeon. It depends on what you use the processor for. The high-level calculation or some high-reliability number/chemistry/etc jobs needs the Xeon (workstations) which is not a gaming computer.
Slower (as in graphics) upgrade graphics card. Processing power - slow because your using the processor for other reasons than a bussiness/workstation desktop.
gamer or not a gamer....
What is the formula to calculate FLOPS for the following processors?
1155 processors for mainstream. 2nd generation. http://ark.intel.com/products/52214
2011 processors for high end processing (2011 would be bang for the buck deal.) $50+ is better Flops/Watt performance. 3rd generation. http://ark.intel.com/products/63698
Go with 2011 processor. The setup is new (may cost more); if you are not keen with spending more, go with 1155 processor setup.
great for bioinfometrics (future reference) - when rendering 100 - 500 particles - the AMD core system (384cores/500mHz, 4 core, 35 watts) *10 systems - head node; server node; 8 system(body render) nodes + 7750(9 graphic card) + 7770 graphic card.
there will be approximately 56%+ increase in graphic performance from 2nd generation AMD systems.
there will be approximately 30%+ computing performance from the 2nd generation AMD systems.
The i5 processor is mainstream (the retail clueless people will follow this trend), and the AMD processor is faster in graphics than i5. The graphics in bioinfometrics - is crucial on data collection, and the time for the protiens to render is shortened by the AMD 7000s series graphics system. The i5 takes longer to render, and drains more power to compansate for the dual graphic formation of the AMD A8 (future to be A10) with 6550 (future to be 7750)
AMD is short-hand if it is single processor. AMD is long handed if it is multiple processor... Why AMD does not release a dual processor board for AMD processors + quad GPU (800 watts/3.5teraflops (that is 3.5 x 10e12)
AMD has more potiential in the mainstream market for low power consumption. Intel is overestimated by people, they need to release more eyecatching items; 12 threads instead of 8 threads, $150 i5 processors (2.0Ghz, 4 threads, HT) rather than to overprice with their labels and misled people. AMD is modest.
