Have any of you that are complaining taken a step back at the CPU you have now? I'm building iTX's on i3's because they're everything I need for those builds. Are you all just focusing on your main builds and wondering why Intel is not looking directly at you?
Up front, the needle is still going in the right direction. You can't get something from nothing, the TDP steps back up a bit (please research that because most of you have it wrong still) and the performance moves another step UP too.
The CPU freq has topped out because it's stable while they work on shrinking. You have to pick one side or the other in order to go that route. Do you want more cores (no), do you want faster clocks (why) or do you keep shrinking like you're suppose to do.
Latios, I entirely disagree with your found function and reply, there is not a physical constraint. That looks like it would have worked 10 years ago, but was also proven false by some magician here and we're running on OTHER proofs of concept currently. I've been through it all and found we don't need CPU's that last 30 years. Mind you, I've been IN there. You're also being ignorant of what servers actually do today. Most don't need a 16-core CPU and can have a 4w Atom run their cloud service, in which AMD and ARM are aiming at as well. Never the less, it has NOTHING to do with the CPU's we're talking about. "some of our guy's position" includes your opinion posted here, does it not? I'm with ya LatiosXT, but not...
We are all still in a world where most of us with 107465 cores only use 2 threads daily. You can't blame Intel for that one bit and should move along. Thus the debate that we're having here: Why even bother?
SLI/Crossfire has always been pure fucking bullshit. Plop 2 6800's in there for $700, in a year there will be a $300 that does the same job. Go ahead. Plop a pair of 680's in your mega rig for a grand. You're not fixing a damned thing and detracting from the logical debate.
LatoisXT Just gave up (as I'm reading this thread). It's not back and forth but actual talk. Sorry you missed it or understand that you could be wrong.
Oops, Latios is back with fucking Latin. A dead language and forgot about English debates of fact or knowledge.
LatiosXT: you're right. In every way. I hope your dreams come true in your world. Thanks for the debate. Do you have a conclusion like I've made time and time again that's correct for decades, or just pissing in the wind and getting pissed off that others don't agree? You go up to this point, and then quit. When you run out, you treat as stupid. Really?
I assume a lot, but but blind. I'm ready for a debate any time, but don't shut members down because you have another ideal. It may just not fit. Hell, this is just as fun as Facebook right now. Just call each other names and force opinions. No one has pulled Latin before...ever. Why? It's a dead language unless your a biologist finding rare moths.
