^ Yep, we don't want to know you anymore. You've made your choice. You're an outcast now, one to be avoided, to be condemned and disparaged.

150W TDP... Products like this should be banned, energy is finite and I don't see why it should be going to waste on something so useless as 'slightly faster graphics'.

I'm not talking out of my ass, i'm talking design wise, IMO 125w is unacceptable these days, it's just too much, that's what my 7 year old q6600 uses.

I did mention electricity bill :p

 

aprox $36 per year, mind you, this is considering average price per watt, the higher the price of electricity, the higher the difference. I would rather spend those $40 and get better memory and/or harddrive... now... considering I did the same when I bought my q6600 g0 ( 95w vs 125w b3 stepping) and i've had it running since 2007 (7 years) thats $36x7 = $252 ... ( In my case anyway)...

But anyway, who says facts are useful ? Current lineup, go intel! and AMD gooo spend on RnD, sell your kidneys but do it!


*costs exaggerated for example to be clear.

 

Guys?

 

150 watts... compared to FX CPU's running at 125 watts...

 

These new CPU's should be banned right? Think of your high electric bill, Guppy.
