    Here we Go!

    Business is tough for just about every industry and will continue to be for at least the next 4 years. Having just built an FX6300 system, I know that this will be my last desktop CPU, in the future it will be an APU. The AMD brand won't die, even if they are bought out.

    Update on Piledriver FX6300 build

    Heat was my only issue and why I went with the 6300, I'm sure those 8 cores generate alot of heat and since my workstation is in my bedroom, I didn't want to have so many fans that my computer sounds like a vaccum cleaner. AMD needs to work on power consumption and heat.

    What's this about an AMD-ARM server CPU?

    AMD makes a great CPU at it's price point, even with gaming 99.5% of human beings could not destinguish between my FX 6300 playing Metro 2033 and the highest priced Core i7. Desktop software just isn't pushing current hardware to it's limits, lower priced items from AMD and Intel are "Good...

    What's this about an AMD-ARM server CPU?

    AMD is doing well on mainstream desktops, APU's sales are only going up. AMD also has deals with all 3 console makers for their next gen systems. Future sales are not in 1K computers but 400 dollar systems, mobile and low power server.

    Update on Piledriver FX6300 build

    This will prob be my last build that I use a separate CPU and Video card, APU's are the future, it's just that the A-10 isn't quite there yet far as gaming is concerned, AMD's next batch should be up to par. AMD needs to get power consumption down on it's entire line of CPU's

    For most people and even for most gamers the AMD FX CPU's are more than enough, especially at their pricepoints. I just ordered my new build with an FX 6300, this will prob be my last pure CPU, by next gen both Intel and AMD will have gotten serious about APU's.
