    AMD?!? I’ve already had 2 burned AMD CPUs (1 laptop 1 desktop) in the past. Expect a lot of YLODs for this model.

      Uhm, baka naman AMD Duron / Thunderbird yan from the 90’s lol

      Kung MODERNO ang laptop / desktop mo may thermal shutdown yan when it hits a specific core temp…so ‘frying’ it is nearly impossible

      One more thing, hindi naman siguro tanga ang SONY para kumontrata sila ng unreliable chip/graphics maker no? otherwise sila din ang masisira sa customers.

    • Adrian says:

      agree ako kay zalzal on this matter, at baka na rin sa maintenance mo ng unit mo kaya nasunugan ka ng processors :)

      AMD’s been battling with Intel since day 1 matagal na sana silang nabaon sa hukay kung unreliable ang technology nila :)

    • Justin says:

      Tama ka dun, bro. To be specific, Thunderbird nga yung isang chip na nasunog sa akin. However, right after that, I went on to use a Pentium II chip. Can you explain to me why I never had any problems with my Intel chip given the same usage patterns?

      You’re saying new tech now prevents chips from being fried. Fine. I believe you. But that was not my experience during my AMD days.

      As for your “hindi naman siguro tanga ang SONY para kumontrata sila ng unreliable chip/graphics maker” comment, this remains to be seen. Malalaman lang natin ang totoo once these units are released to the consumers and stress-tested.

      Since the inception of Athlon64, na-improve na yung heat dissipation ng AMD cpus, I am an AMD fanboy myself and I have yet to experience a major breakdown, heck I can even overclock it using the stock fan without any hiccups (My aged Athlon 2 X2 went as high as 3.8ghz using just the stock fan (3.0 ghz stock) … Battlefield pa at Crysis yung madalas kong laruin noon

      So to dispel the myth…AMD’s are as reliable as iNtel.

    • wew says:

      ano kamo @abuzalzal?AMD fanboy?so gumagamit ka ng computer na AMD-powered,anung gamit na OS?WINDOWS?HAHAHAHAHA BITCH =))

    • Rachel says:

      Uhh.. Ano po nakakatawa, sir? And ano kinalaman ng AMD-powered PC sa paggamit niya ng Windows OS? I don’t see anything wrong there. Either I’m missing something here or sadyang bobo ka lang. (:

    • Rachel says:

      Nvm. After reading a few more articles with their respective comments sections in this site, na-gets ko na. I’m “new” here, btw. :p

    • Rachel says:

      babarahin sana kita pero okay na inadmit mo naman mali mo eh hahaha kilala mo na si abuzalzal =) siya ung pakunwaring expert sa gadgets pero ang totoo expert lang siya sa cherry mobile XD

      @abuzalzal Ampota! Amd is better than intel? Ginagago mo ba ako? Hindi lahat nadadaan sa stock (speed)o oc capability para mag conclude na mas maganda Amd sa Intel. Andaming Factors dapat, i-consider or reconsider (sa kaso mo). Unang una yung core architecture ng bawat cpu manafacturer. Like ngayon, FX series vs Core series. Kung titignan sa benchmarks, palaging nauuna ang Intel. Mura lang ang AMD at maganda silang pang oc pero nag bobottleneck yung performance ng cpu dahil sa pagkagawa nito. e.g. Fx8350 = 8 cores/8threads, ang cores noon ay divided into 2: So, meron tayong cores 1&2 | 3&4 | 5&6 | 7&8.
      Bawat core ay may ALU pero ang pangit doon kada PAIR ng CPU ay nagshahare sila ng FPU. Kaya hindi masyadong maganda ang pag bigay ng “instructions” sa cpu. Not like sa Intel, cores 1 | 2 | 3 | 4, may sarisarili silang ALU at FPU bawat cores kaya hindi nag bobottleneck compared sa AMD. Tska hindi na gaganda ang perf ng top-of-the-line cpu ng AMD kesa sa Intel (at this point of time) kahit pa yung Fx9xxx series nila na oc/boost speed na 5.0 ghz na 8 core? Wala parin yan compared sa mga i7 or mga Intel server cpus. Evident yan an daming benchmark na nauuna talaga ang intel, kaya di mo pwedeng sabihin ang Amd mas maganda sa Intel. Tska mura lang sila pero yung TDP mo naman ang taas kaya wala din, yung binayad mo sa kuryente ay sana pinambili mo na ng i7 haswell. Lol! And one more thing, yung flagship ng amd cpu, pag tinignan mo sa mga benchmarks, hahahahahah! Sila yung nasa baba para sa Tier na “Hardcore” tas mga kasama pa nila mga older cpu ng intel? See kahit luma na ang ganda parin.

      @Justin bobo kasi yan c abuzalzal ang alam lng nya kasi na basehan ng pagandahan ng processor eh speed at dami ng cores

  2. Mark says:

    Sir, ask ko lang po regarding sa online shopping particularly from US Online Stores like Best Buy, mas makakamura po ba ako pag magpapaship ako thru GCASH AMEX or sa local grey market stores nalang? Thanks

    • Abe Olandres says:

      Konti lang difference, mga 1-2k pag sa gray market binili.

    • Mark says:

      Nung lumabas kasi dito sa pinas, yung nexus 4costs 21k. Sa mismong google store, $299 lang siya. malaki yung difference kasi sa nexus phones. My problem is kapag yung unit eh faulty? Have you experienced something like this when buying from US?

    • Mark says:

      And, how about the shipping period? Ilang araw niyo po natanggap yung mga products niyo after buying it?

  3. Cuaki says:

    Sana huwag gayahin yung release date dati para sa PS4 (which is 4 years after the us release)

  4. CuriousCat says:

    Sir Yuga, ask ko lng din po kung pano procedure ng pagbili sa Us Online Stores like best buy? TY

  5. silentwarrior says:

    Sana maging enthusiastic ang mga hackers sa pagtinker sa PS4. Once marelease yan sa market, I’m confident na may magiging available na mod para makapag-install ng Linux dyan sa PS4. The architecture is x86, so hindi impossible ang Linux install.

    Make it 33 countries. With my beloved, Philippines, my Philippines just joining the fray as a gatecrasher.

    kailan kaya to marerelase sa philippines kasi kung hindi pa alam magpapadala nalang ako ng ps4 sa tita ko galing australia

    There is definately a lot to learn about this topic.
    I love all of the points you have made.
