Default Re: Why is Ryzen 8 core against FX CPU's??

Bulldozer architecture has only 4 Modules but each Module has 2 "integer cores" and share the rest like caches. We can now argue if it really has 8 Cores in its 4 Modules or the 4 Modules (Cores) can execute 8 Threads. Im not a technical expert in this, so I cant say if AMD created really a CPU that qualifies for an octa core CPU but its fact that gets identified in Windows / CPU-Z as an Octa. Hence this is the reason why its categorized in HWBot as 8 core. Though I have to admit, because of the performance I was really thinking about putting them in the quad core category.

4 modules 8 threads was the technical explantion i was given by engineers prior to launch in amds lab.

Of course marketing told me it was a true 8 core.
I've got no strings to hold me down. To make me fret, or make me frown. I had strings but now I'm free. There are no strings on me
