We weigh in to help listener Ellesshoo out with his home network
We noticed a listener post in the forums who was looking for help organizing and consolidation of his multi-PC home network. And beg the big question all enthusiast eventually have. Do I rack it or not?
Some links of the products we discussed:
AMD Bulldozer should just have been called Dozzzzzzer
We only give our brief impressions based on testing from some of our favorite sites. So all this conjecture is without any hands on testing, but general consensus is Bulldozer doesn’t provide the bang for the buck that AMD is known for and it performance is on par at best against Intels current popular offerings, but with Intel’s Big powerhouse SB-E on the x79 platform coming in Q1 2012 and Ivy Bridge being released shortly (we hope) thereafter. We don’t see any reason to choose AMD over Intel. No advantage in performance or price. Don’t take our word for it see what others have to say and make your own decision.
