Massive Driver Patch. Better than expected (from me) piledriver performance.

Late to the party, but at least you've dressed well for a change AMD.

Hopefully the layoffs that are coming don't negate the positive change that is happen now as a result of their work.

Here is my best way to describe it .... think of each "Modual" in the same vein of a car engine:

a regular "core" with nothing else in it ... would be then like a SOHC (single overhead cam) engine

a amd "modual" would be more like a DOHC (dual overhead cam) engine

If I go 1 more further in this ..... Intel's "Cores" "hyperthreading" is a actualy executable extention aka software vs in the case of a amd "modual" what Intels "hyperthread" does is actualy physicaly executed by a hardware/"core" or in the case of my above referenced "cam".

Peaple are welcome to correct me if I am wrong in how I stated/worded the explination.

Eh, I don't think that analogy works properly (comming from a car guy) as most DOHC designs are much more efficent/better than similar SOHC designs.

That being said most times I just call it physical hyperthreading.

ITs unique if nothing else.

1) Thanks.
2) Looking forward to it - and yes, please do include the FX 8350 result like it was already requested; that would be of much help.

Anyone upgrading to this have a 1090t they want to part with cheap to drop in my AM2+ board?

Excellent review! I was wondering how much if any multithreaded performance difference exists between the Windows 7 and 8 OS?

The tempt is there.

My m3a78-em (its a 780g ddr2 based board) already has the latest bios and is ready for a 1090t (its the fastest processor my board will accept and would be a decent bump from my x3 710). That said I am only looking if its a good deal, since I would otherwise just save the money for a cpu/ram/mob upgrade.

You take charlie's and I'll try to lay claim to terrybear's
We'll send two 1090's down to Nova Scotia.

Come on terry, you know you wanna upgrade

I am glad to see AMD bring things back up! Hopefully Steamroller will do even better and bring intel some tough competition! I hope they keep the prices reasonable and keep the am3+ - the continuity of motherboard is what originally brought me to AMD. So now I'd love to upgrade from my 965 but don't have the money (so I'd take a used 1090t )

Page 18, top graph has the cpu listed as a 3850 instead of a 8350.

Haha I'm thinking the same thing. However the 1100T would go into our HTPC. Yeah, that would be stupid overkill but that's what enthusiasts do..... right?
Besides, the kids need more power for watching their disney movies. At least that's what I'm telling my wife.
