So is the chip actually an A6-7600 as stated in the article? Or is it an A8-7600 as stated in the article title? Does anyone ever proof read the articles at Maximum PC?

So I'll be building an arcade machine mostly for fighting games. Would this be enough to run Street Fighter 4 without issues? I mean without a discreet card.

Edit: What discreet card from both Nvidia an AMD would this be an equivalent?

It'll run it, though it might need to be on medium settings and at 720p. There's also no equivalent from the current generation of video cards... though a GeForce GT 610/630 might be as close to it as you can get.

2 GPU cores and a few extra MHz cost $54? Still under 4 GHz? :(

Quad core is barely sufficient today, which is to say that it is insufficient.

Correction: an AMD quad core is barely sufficient, an intel quad core is.

a 4670k can easily stomp any quad core AMD has ever made, and the 4770k/4790k benches pretty close to the 9590 at stock speeds, and blows past it with an overclock.

OMG. AMD, just stop with the crap-vertisement and find a way to get people to know your processors are decent. As opposed to letting Intel stomp all over your face (I honestly can't say I've EVER heard an AMD commercial)

Well AMD never really recovered after they beat Intel in performance, but Intel conducted lots of illegal business practices to ensure AMD never gained more marketshare, even when they had the better product. AMD releasing underpowered CPUs nowadays is why predatory practices are a bad thing.

Except on another hand, if AMD could really develop a superior product when they were playing second fiddle in sales, then how come they can't do that again? They royally screwed up K10's launch with the TLB bug and Bulldozer's performance moments were situational.

After the Pentium 4, Intel learned from their mistakes and start creating better products. I don't feel that AMD is doing the same. The markets they're hoping to go after are kind of niche.

HSA is kind of the buzz word and from what my multicore buddys tell me (I have ZERO experience coding with parallelism) it's actually really great to have a GPU you weren't using, to suddenly be useful.

They have several on Youtube, but most are pretty odd (I'd say on par with some of MS's worse ones) with a couple decent ones scattered around.

This is one that was shown on Newegg:

That one was pretty decent, but most are pretty cringeworthy.

Considering AMD revenues around 1.4 Bil every quarter, and Intel around 13.5 Bil, it's kinda difficult for them not to let Intel stomp on their face.

Hey.That_Dude

Yeah but still. I hear more "Intel" inside comments from Dell, HP, Lenovo, etc commercials than actual Intel commercials. Try that one out AMD. I want Dell to be proud to claim "AMD inside" (I'd also like Dell to have any pride worth saving. BUT, that is a different argument altogether).

Well, NVIDIA doesn't advertise a whole lot and they're doing really well for what amounts to being primarily a GPU company.

avatar

AFDozerman

NV advertises, it's just in a different way. Intel is really the only one capable of putting commercials on TV.

Ugh. This just creates confusion for the uninformed: "Intel get with the times, AMD has a 12 core processor and you're stuck on quad-core!"
