I personally don't care about these types of benckmarks. I much prefer real benchmarks, such as game benchmarks (seeings as that's what I use most to stress my pc).

I agree, although I do think we need to start stressing CPU's in different ways. Such as running two or more tasks at a time. 

A example would be transcoding a Blu-Ray movie...WHILE playing Crysis 2. Or something like that. Intel's hyperthreading and AMD's upcoming Bulldozer are meant for this IMO. Esp Bulldozer. 

I rarely ever do just one thing on my PC's, I usually ALWAYS have some sort of transcoding going on(usually converting things to play on my Xoom/PSP's/etc or compression. 

Also I would also like to see the Zero Point machines encrypted with True Crypt or at least BitLocker. Security is gonna play a big role in the future and if i'm not mistaken Intel's SB is well suited for handling encryption without bogging down too much.

So, how well would these uber PC's do transcoding a blu-ray, while running Crysis 2 in DX11 maxed on a TrueCrypted setup? Hopfully Max PC will show us....

Whats more important is I, along with millions of other people...don't give two sh*t's about SYSmark...or what CPU got 34 more marks this year in it.

You do realize what website you're posting to don't you?

Yes, yes i do John.

I care about REAL WORLD benchmarks. How much faster does CPU X transcode a movie from one format to another than CPU Y. How fast is it transcoding movies, while running Photoshop scripts while playing Crysis? Not how many bungholio marks it makes in some synthetic benchmark.

heh heh

I am cornholio! I need more TP for my bunghole!

HAHA

But ya, I agree with you there!

I feel the same as him. Hell, I buy AMD over Intel because AMD has a proper upgrad path, and I can build a system based on an AMD CPU and still have money for food and rent once I'm done.

Plus performance wise, AMD is, in my opinion, great.

They may have had a hand in creating the processes, but if Bapco is using Intel's compiler it will slow down AMD, Via, and who knows what other CPU or chipset. Thus making the benchmark useless.

can we see if intel owns any stock in this company
