Ahhh... so you met Qaridarium and it seems he likes you
"I have a 486DX2-66MHz that is faster than your "magical" i7!!! i7 is slower than the Z80 on my Master System!!"
BTW, you may also like Heroes of Newerth which is similar to WoW (As far as I can tell), has a native linux port and should run flawlessly on your system. Oh wait, that's right, your system is slower than a Gameboy so you're out of luck.
nice :-) very LOL 1+++ n1
and the best part he buy a 4core cpu for playing a singlecore game uuh it overclocks to 2,8ghz turbo mega boost ultra super duber...
next time he comes back and now he has a 6core mega ultra super duber and he playes an singlecore game again but now he super overclocks the turbo mega boost to ultra super duber 3ghz!!!!! 3 ghz!!!
BUT he don't turn of Hyper-Threading so he lost 20% of speed in WOW...
but next time he buy a 8core!!!!!!!!!!! to play a singlecore game !!!!
I've not read the entire thread, so I could be talking about something completely off-topic, but just to point out that many people forget about RAM speed and associated latency.
Could power issues have been related to CPU clocking speeds? Another point to look at.
But, if the problem is fixed, then I guess this thread no longer has any point other than for comparing e-wang.
That was with respect to ALL non-server processors, not just laptop chips. In terms of desktop chips, *ANY* mobile CPU is CRAP. I don't care what brand or model.
In other words, the VERY FASTEST mobile chip (which it isn't, BTW) would be considered faster than all other mobile chips, but slower than all desktop chips.... which puts it right about in the very middle -- also known as AVERAGE or MEDIOCRE.
