    Default Phenom 9100 Review

    http://www.hwbox.gr/showthread.php?t=1219

    Review is in Greek but the graphs say it all. Quad core Phenom 9100e loses to E4700.

    AMD want to make very cheap and low speed quads at very competetive prices because they know that intel pwn them, (btw, has futuremark copyrighted it yet) so they want to make quads the standard, and appeal to people who know a lot less about PCs, and build their own.

    Ouch. Although to be fair, the power consumption is fairly low for a quad - then again, it loses to a dual core (albeit a dual core which is clocked at 2.6GHz to its 1.8GHz - 800MHz difference).

    I reckon that AMD are still safe for quite a while since they own ATI, but if there arent decent CPUs from them in the next year or so, the whole AM2 and spider platform does down the pan

    AMD might have to rebrand them Sem**** X4 judging by that - that part can't even really compete with Intel's budget dual-cores , even though the dual cores run at a faster clockspeed.

    It seems this K10 architecture is a bit of a dud and not much better than K8 by the looks of it...
