    We have a thread about computers, so I though it would be a good idea to make one were you can talk about everything that's related to tech.

    Be nice to each other!
    Don't hate on someone just because his opinion is different than yours.

    I really wonder why AMD's products are so horribly under-performing recently :-/

    ISP gave us a new router, didn't work, even though it is plug and play, plugged old one back in for now so we have internet.

    Because they've been investing quite heavily into markets other than consumer CPUs. Current CEO has a major hard on for mobile and server markets, AMD are now an ARMv8 licensee, and if I recall, they're an instruction set only licensee not a full core design licensee so theyre likely designing their own ARMv8 compatible chip.

    x86 wise they seem to just be focused on cramming as many cores into as little space as possible without a care for efficiency, then compensating by whacking the clock speeds up. They dont care that the instructions per clock basically hasnt changed since phenom.

    They're cheap, but they're really not doing anything to counter the old "You get what you pay for" thing.
