I decided to use AMD in my video system because I could live better with the few minutes it *may* take more to render the final movie than with the heat and noise from fans that would have to throw out the heat make by the CPU (around 65 degrees), the 2 HDD RAID array, the single storage drive, the chipset, the video card and voltage regulators to regulate the 200+ watts the 950D would throw out at idle..The main purpose of my new computer is going to be for Video Editing.
Do you guys think I should go for an Intel or AMD chip?
I got X2-4400 with X1800XT and have 29°C idle temp and 40°C at full load. Got 2 Tower Fans (one blowing into the tower one out, big silent ones). I still wonder if the CPU´s temp.-sensor is working correctlyI'm a Intel CPU(P4 630) owner..an with 3 aditional fans(full air flow installed) i have 34 C idle..in apllication 48-50 C..the noise is lower-medium.
Yea but you are comparing older CPU´s to actual ones. In the past you could have made fried eggs on an AMD-CPU (beginning from 500 MHz) but things have changed.But AMD its not having just 64 or X2...Amd its having Athlon Sempron Barton Duron all of them have a heat problems and bad construction majority at 0,13nm or higher 0,180nm.A friend of mine with a Barton 2000Mhz real speed have 62 C idle and in apllication....so AMD is only the moment processor wich is 64 and a lower price.
Uh? How would you like to prove that?But when i'm thinking at lower price i compare with non-quality manufacture,fabrication or materials..because the fiability its a reason from why i choose Intel.
Well even an equal result with benchmarks doesnt help Intel since AMD has the better Value.AMD is faster in benchmarks but not radicaly faster..it is with some points faster anyway apart from this we are free to choose from a lot of criterias not just from the benchmarks.
Although the new Pentium D 900 series clearly is better than the 800 family and the firm finally manages to come close to AMD, we would still recommend an AMD based system to any conscious computer buyer due to advantages offered in terms of both performance and power consumption.
5X? Intel has said many things, as has dell. Check out my my post about Dell's SLI in GFX forums.If you go with a 955 or 975 cipset it's looking like Intels Conroe core chips will work with a BIOS update (?) Intel has said there is a 5x performance to watt increase with the new design over prescott/northwood.
I have a P4 640 it runs at 32C idle and 44C load. All these AMD people continually cr_p on how hot the P4 is. "You can cook an egg on it" what rubbish the people in this forum talk!I'm a Intel CPU(P4 630) owner..an with 3 aditional fans(full air flow installed) i have 34 C idle..in apllication 48-50 C..the noise is lower-medium.
Is the conroe the new intel coming out?I love AMD, don't get me wrong.
What i also love, is Pentium-M processors, those were like Pentium 4's were supposed to be.. more performance/watts. So i actually believe Conroe will be a good competition vs AMD..
