that crap bout the cores being real so better compar5ed to intels hyperthreading is nonsensical. you could turn off hyperthreading on the 980x and still be better, and on multithreaded stuff with hyperthreading on the 8350 would eat its dust.... as said even if he gets the 8350, doesnt matter how new it is, 300 for both and he already has the best x58 mobo way more cost effective!!! also triple channel ram to boot im pretty sure the 8350 doesnt have that, i know it doesnt effect much but is cool smile.gif

X58 only needs single channel to beat the PD 1866MHz memory bandwidth even at X58 being at 1600MHz tongue.gif

There is really no comparison here, I would gladly exchange my fx-8320 for a 980X, its still a beast.

Still waiting for a next gen console mad.gif

wow and in that bench mark posted the 980x is running 670Mhz slower. with your board and you said you might water cool, you would blow it out the water, man i thought amd was behind but thats pretty bad

An i7-980X is flatly superior to the FX-8350. There is really no comparison.

Both now, and in the future, in both single and heavily threaded applications, the 980X will remain superior.

I admit that i7 980x is a superior processor but its 3 years older and since that guy most likely used for 2-3 years it most likely will die very soon while you can have similar performance as FX 8350, i7 980x is a very high end processor from 2010 and its old, has same power consumption as FX 8350...

Go with FX 8320/8350 buy a great aftermarket cooler or water cooler, AM3+ socket will be alive for next 2 years while i7 980x socket is dead, gone... When you upgrade to Steamroller FX 8550 it will blow out of the water i7 980x and Ivy Brigde and Jim Keller joined AMD and he is an amazing processor engineer so Steamroller could achieve some massive boost over Piledriver eg 25-30% so beats Ivy...

I stopped reading right there.
Honestly, unless the guy ran it on a 9V battery it's probably good for a long time yet.
The fact that I have two fully working p4 era PCs about five feet from where I'm sitting leads me to believe that if the chip wasn't massively abused it'll be fine.

The 980X is definitely the best choice, it's faster and you get to use it in an awesome motherboard. thumb.gif

Edit: Went back a page, saw your previous post. The real Vs. virtual cores thing doesn't apply when the 980X is better at just about everything virtual cores or not.
That reminds me of the "real" quad core from AMD vs the stuck together duals in Kentsfield chips. It didn't matter because Kentsfield was better. tongue.gif

Q6600 @ 4.23GHz
Another Q6600 at 4.3GHz Batch 737B and stable at 3.6 at 1.28V, 3.72 at 1.328V. 3.9GHz at 1.48V.
