Re: I7-930 Upgrade Opinions/Options? ($300-$600ish)

I'd probably take a single threaded Intel core over an AMD SMT core all else being equal. SMT/HT isn't magic, and Intel still has a slight edge on IPC and real-world clocks with their latest revisions of Turboboost. I think the real advantage of AMD over Intel on 6 core parts is the overclocking an...

Re: Battletech game coming out

I had a similar talk with one of the guys hoping it'd add clans at some point. If they do it will probably have to be as an expansion or dlc or BT 2. Either way, I too hope they come. Clans made for some awesome tech advances for the Inner Sphere and then we'd have Elementals!!
