Hey ppl gas waht last week i was building a NEw pc 4 a FRd.. A PC with 3800+ X2 heehh b4 build i trought the x2 3800+ is a Fast pice of CPu... But after buld it was dissapointed... It SLow.. WEll not realy slow but it like a 3000+ WEll sine is the sam core clock.,, n L2 cars an every thing....! It Run the sam sPeed..! well My frd brought it 4 R2500+/- for the 3800+ And the 4000+ it only R100+ Rand diff..! so PPL if u not Work on stuff like Encoding Movie.. then I think rather Buy the 3800+/ 4000+ singel core.. It a beter Buy... caus X2 3800+ realy Not a Fast CPu it just X2.. which is point less.. unless u get any thing from 4400+ x2 HEHEHEHe COOOl LOVE AMD Jeff :)

all my 3800X2's out performed my FX 55 let alone a 4000+ ... I think yo umight have had something wrong with your setup. the 3800+ is so snappy and runs liek a champ!

OMG! That SO r0x0rz my b0x0rz. AMD ATHlon 64 4000+ iz DA BOMB! :)))))))))))))))))))))))))

INTEL SUX OMG! I LUV MY FRdz! PPL, AMD ROX! LOL LMAO. ROFL. AMD l33t 4ever!


LOL. duh! 4000+ outperforms the x2 3800+ in almost every bench. Did ya even bother to read the CPU articles on this site?

<still laughing>

Ever heard about Syntax and Grammar ?

Dual-Core CPUs are peculiar beasts that need to be tamed if you want them to show their full potential.

Single-threaded applications won't benefit from the 2nd core which will just stay idle, unlike multithreaded applications on a multithreaded OS which will show a certain benefit.

Try encoding two movies at the same time after you assign the proper CPU affinity to each instance, that dual core CPU will really flex its muscles and show its full potential.

If it does'nt, it means overlooked some minor detail like flashing the BIOS to a version that actually supports dual core CPUs so the OS can actually use it.

If that thread was intended to be a troll, it definitely is a weak one, if you sincerely meant to point out a newly discovered flaw of dual core CPUs, I can only point and laugh at your incompetence and cluelessness.

Hum, ppl why not buy the 3800+!!!!

It's a no brainer, go dual core and OC it.
Simple Steps to Overclocking:
1.)Get your 3800+ (or comparable cheap Opteron CPU :wink: )
2.)Get good HS and Fan (like SI-120)
3.)Make RAM divider somthing rediculously slow (to take it out of the equation for now)
4.)Lower the mult. and bump up the Bus Speed

I have seen many 3800+'s get to FX-55 and sometimes FX-57 speeds. The Opteron 165's almost always get at least 2.8GHZ, most on stock voltage.
