1  Welcome to Fudzilla Forum / Suggestion / Re: Discuss this article on: May 23, 2007, 11:36:40 PM
Great to hear you're planning on adding a link to every article! But maybe it would be nice to integrate comments/discussions directly within every article. So when you open an article, you read it and it is then followed by the comments. This way you don't have to link to the forum and with the option of a quick reply directly beneath every article, I think there will be more comments.

Either way, it is an addition to the already great website. I really like the clean lay-out, please keep it that way. ;-)
2  Welcome to Fudzilla Forum / Discussion about Articles / Re: intel knows you overclock? on: May 23, 2007, 11:30:13 PM
Sidenote: the costs to make a CPU is not just $30. Sure, the production costs are just that, but with that you only count in the cost of the materials, the machinery and the employees. What you forget is R&D and engineering the product. That costs millions, maybe billions of dollars even before the first test sample has ever been produced.

I am a retailer and have RMA'ed dozens of Intel and AMD CPU's, they will test it I can guarantee you. At least two or three of those have been rejected because the problem wasn't the cpu, which later on turned out to be either the motherboard or psu.
3  Hardware / Processors - CPU / Re: Intel Core 2 Quad 6600 Price Drop... on: May 23, 2007, 11:23:26 PM
On one hand I think it's good that prices drop, but why so quickly? I mean... I bought my E6300 for 210 not that long ago (around january), now I can buy a E6600 for the same price and within two months I can buy either a Core 2 Extreme E6850 or a Core 2 Quad Q6600 for not much more (around 275).

Like I said, when you not yet have a Core 2 Duo, it's fantastic. But I feel kinda left out by Intel. I spend my hard earned money on one of their processors, and know they're saying: "haha, you can buy a much better processor today for the same money, but your E6300 ain't worth shit anymore". I mean... by the time I will upgrade (at the end of the year, when AMD Phenom X4 will arrive) I may be glad to get 25 for my E6300.

Intel is just fucking with their customers (excuse my language) in my opinion. That's not a good thing. Sure, every products price drops sooner or later, but this isn't acceptable anymore. What they're also doing is getting rid of AMD this way. I don't know if they will achieve that, but when they do I'm sure Intel will instantly increase their prices in the same way they're dropping them at the moment. Just because they will have a monopoly, when AMD is gone. And by then, we all have a problem.
4  Software / Games / Re: Crysis on: May 23, 2007, 11:14:10 PM
From what I've heard a couple of months ago (around january/february) the internal beta version of Crysis needed 2 8800GTX graphics cards to run smoothly at HD resolutions, where the framerate would be around 35fps. I still wonder what they mean by HD resolution, 1280x720/800 or 1920x1080/1200?

Let's hope it will run smoothly (minimum of 30fps) at 1280x1024 with a 8800 GTS or HD 2900 XT when it arrives.
5  Hardware / Graphics Cards / Re: ATi Radeon HD 2900XTX Test Resutls on: May 23, 2007, 11:00:34 PM
I'm not impressed by this card either, though it has some really good USP's. It's around the same price point as nVidia's GeForce 8800 GTS 640 MB and gets very close to the 8800 GTX. Furthermore, for gamers who also like HD video content, this is card is the better choice since it not only decodes H.264, but also AVC. nVidia's 8800 series does only H.264 and lacks full HDMI support. Only some 8600 models are available with HDMI, but that's not even a match to the HD 2900 XT.

All in all I think this is still a good card for the money. It may not be the fastest, but it is the next best thing.

Personal note: at the moment I own a 8600 GT (because I don't need extreme gaming power), but if AMD's Radeon HD 2600XT/Pro has the same advantages, I will replace my GeForce.
