Flopped CPUs & GPUs: AMD FX, RX Vega, the Pentium 4 and now Intel Arc?

0
75

The list of CPUs and GPUs in recent history that have been a flop is long and includes the Bulldozer and Piledriver processors from the AMD FX and Radeon RX Vega series, which have been released since 2011 aka “Poor Volta” from 2017 and the Pentium 4. But does Intel's Arc 1.0 (“Alchemist”) have the potential?

Floped CPUs & GPUs

Of course, the four CPU and GPU series presented here and thus brought to mind once again can also be seen as representative of many other IT and hardware flops, but due to their level of awareness they are still used today as prominent examples of “flops ” and disappointing hardware.

AMD FX (“Bulldozer” and “Piledriver”)

The title of the editorial test of October 12, 2011 is sufficient to describe the entry of the new modular Bulldozer architecture, manufactured in 32 nm, into the desktop.

  • AMD Bulldozer: “A Black Wednesday”

The up to 4-module strong design, for which AMD had to pay back 12.1 million US dollars to CPU buyers eight years later, turned out to be absolutely disadvantageous, especially in games.

AMD FX-81XX (“Bulldozer”) Model Modules/Threads Clock Turbo clock L2/L3 cache TDP Price FX-8150 4/8 3.6 GHz 3 .9/4.2 GHz 8/8 MB 125 watts 245$ FX-8120 4/8 3.1 GHz 3.4/4.0 GHz 8/8 MB 95/125 watts 205$ FX-6100 3/6 3 .3GHz 3.6/3.9GHz 6/8MB 95W 165$ FX-4100 2/4 3.6GHz 3.7/3.8GHz 4/8MB 95W 115$

In this discipline, the AMD FX-8150 with 4 modules and 8 threads had to admit defeat to its direct predecessor, the AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition (test) aka Thuban.< /p>

AMD FX-8150 to 5.0 GHz with one module
AMD FX-8150 at 4.6 GHz with all cores

Not even the top model of the Bulldozer generation could match the top dogs Intel Core i7-2600K and i5-2500K aka Sandy Bridge and even their predecessors. The direct successor, AMD Vishera, wasn't convincing either, as the comparison between Bulldozer and Piledriver showed at the time.

Unit: percent

There was no question of “Legend reborn”, as AMD announced the bulldozer CPUs of the FX series, and the up to 5 GHz fast “crowbars” AMD FX-9590 (test) and FX-9370 were ultimately only up to 220 watts thirsty culmination of a more than disappointing CPU series. But how do you see it in retrospect?

AMD Radeon RX Vega (“Vega 10” and “Vega 20”)

During the official preview of the graphics cards of the AMD Vega generation, the manufacturer could not resist taking a dig at its big competitor Nvidia. The warning sign with the slogan “Poor Volta” in the teaser video was ultimately not to AMD's advantage and became a meme. At that time, the next generation of Nvidia was traded as Volta.

The “Poor Volta” swipe backfired for AMD and became a meme

It doesn't matter whether it's the Radeon RX Vega 64 and RX Vega 56 (test), which later became at least price/performance tips, or later the Radeon RX Vega VII (test) (which was simply too loud, too slow and too expensive): The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 and 1080 Ti as well as the successors GeForce RTX 2070, 2080 and 2080 Ti were almost always the better choice.

    Intel Pentium 4 (“Netburst Architecture”)

    The first Pentium 4 series processors, codenamed Willamette, ran at 1.4 and 1.5 GHz and were released in November 2000. The P4 processors, which later appeared in the Northwood, Prescott and Cedar Mill evolution stages, were an emergency measure by Intel and mostly lost out compared to the AMD Athlon.

    Also the editors accompanied the less than glorious evolution of the Pentium 4 with extensive tests and the titles alone speak for themselves.

    • Intel's Prescott was a step backwards through progress< /li>
    • Intel's Pentium 4 Prescott was also a flop with 3.4 GHz
    • The Northwood Celeron was also a flop with 3.0 GHz
    • The Pentium M made the Pentium 4 hot as hell

    The Pentium 4 has had the reputation of being inefficient to this day, with the Prescott-type Pentium 4 Extreme Edition in particular breaking into completely new dimensions. The direct power saving comparison between the Pentium 4 EE and the Athlon XP as well as the Athlon 64 FX shows how superior AMD was at this point.

    Only with the Core microarchitecture and the CPUs of the Intel Core Solo and Core Duo series as well as the successors Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Quad was Intel able to reverse the momentum and regain the lead. However, the Pentium 4 remains a very inglorious chapter for the manufacturer.

    Intel Arc (“Alchemist”) and Xe HPG

    Intel's first generation of graphics cards primarily aimed at gamers, the current Intel Arc (“Alchemist”) series based on Intel Xe HPG, is currently well on the way to joining the inglorious list of CPU and GPU flops and in one breath to be mentioned with AMD FX, Radeon RX Vega and the Intel Pentium 4.

    Raja Koduri, head of the Accelerated Computing Systems and Graphics (AXG) Group at Intel, After countless delays, and his team once again inspired such high expectations in January of this year that could hardly be fulfilled.

    It came as it had to: The Intel Arc A380, which the manufacturer has been selling “exclusively” on the Chinese market for some time and therefore only had to be imported indirectly by the editors, was only rarely able to convince in the test and faced AMD Ultimately, Radeon and Nvidia GeForce are not a country.

    • Intel Arc A380 review: A week between laughter and tears
    • Intel Arc A380 in the test: Further tests on AMD Ryzen, with OC and for fanstop

    Even if Intel promises more for the Arc A770 and Arc A750, which also do not even have an official release date in this country, the benchmarks of the Arc A380 already show where the journey will lead.

    The top models with AMD's RDNA 2 architecture and Nvidia Ampere are realistically out of reach and RDNA 3 and Nvidia Ada are already on the doorstep. But can the first generation based on Intel Xe HPG already be described as a real flop and be mentioned in the same breath as AMD FX, Radeon RX Vega and the Pentium 4?

    Would you already call Intel Arc (“Alchemist”) designate a flop?

    Xe HPG² (“Battlemage”) and the third generation Xe HPG³ (“Celestial”) are intended as the successors to Intel Xe HPG (“Alchemist”), but Intel actually has a correspondingly long one Breath?

    Are you still convinced that Intel Xe HPG will become a serious third player in the gaming GPU segment? How do you see the future of Intel's GPU business? Will it eventually amount to HPC GPUs for servers and supercomputers?
