Better than Bulldozer 8 core? - Page 13  

post #121 of 140
the Microsoft and AMD official are trying to make and release updates that can utilize all 8 cores and have a boost in performance but all efforts in vain frown.gif i did suggest a 2600k if you are looking for more cores and threads thumb.gif

Intel core i7s (older ones two) easily take out the 81xxs. If your in for pure gaming or don't tend to use more then four cores (don't listen to all these people saying no one uses them, No program can but if you megatask like me you will) then the i5s also beat it. For gaming the i3s might also beat it in some games. However, while the 8150 is overpriced the 8120 is a good option if you need/want the cores. Also keep in mind most games are gpu limited. So while some like the 8120 and maybe 6100 might be good for the money if you need mores cores, it isnt the fastest cpu out the. What is? While unfortunately the one that costs $1000, the 3860x. The 3830k is better priced at $600, but still high. If you don't need the cores, i5 2500k. If you do, then 8120 for $200 or i7 2x00k for $330. If you simply want the best, 3860x. In between, the 3830k is the only sb-e I could call remotly worth the money.

A sorry typo its the 3960x and the 3930k, not 38xx. There is a 3820, witch i would not recomend. Unoverclockable, and its price is ok, but the mobo price is absolutly insane. No, if your on the 2011 platfrom get a 39xx

either way not worth answering.

ever heard of google?

takes about 3 seconds of your life to find out which one is better, less than starting a thread anyway.

troll.

Wow it always starts with a question like that smile.gif . I can vouch for the I7 . nevr had an fx chip 8 core but everyone who has one seems to love it. My 2 cents is there is nothing better that a normal to above normal gamer would notice. They can bench all they want. But come on it still gets the job done. And its fast. I would way the cost of the I5 or even I7 before buying and spending hard earned money.

I was so about to get a bulldozer....but now ive been convinced to get 2500k

even better is the 2600k its super epic

only issue is that intel can get pricey on motherboards



still....intel is just great...i hate to admit, but its true

Both intel and amd have there merits. However at the moment intel is makes 'world fastest cpu'. Amd used to with the athlon 64, some day they might again. But now, intel rules the top end. Amd compeats with lower prices and more cores (or on the llano said massivly better intagrated graphics) It all comes down to what you want and how your going to use it. I dont game that much, dont need a massive gpu. A do a lot of video editing compresing and such, i chose the althon ii x3 over the dual core pentium (kind of short on cash). Each build should be tailored to needs of the user and the task.

So a list of what the build is for and your budget would be very helpful in helping us find you the right cpu.

For the last time the 3820 IS OVERCLOCKABLE! I am at 4.625 by changing the bus to 1.25 and choosing my xmp. No chaning nothing else. It is unbelievable easy. Max temps are 58*C with a H100 cooler during IBT or Prime95. Fully stable and outperforming most other people on same clock bench marks. You can hit 5.0ghz pretty easy but I am 100% satisfied with a quick and nasty 4.6. 310-320.00 is not overpriced at all. The only read to gett a 3930 or 3960 is if you do some seriously heavy professional video design work otherwise those two extra cores are a waste right now. The mobo price isn't insane. It is 100.00 MORE!!! That is all. With that you two pcie lanes that can do full x16/x16. SB can't do that and the z77 boards can but the IB processor still can't. 1155 socket is dying and most of these guys will argue to death that anything other than what they have is crap in comparison. 1155 build vs 2011 build was 65.00 difference for me. I didn't want to be stuck with an outdated socket in 1 year. So I went with the X58 predecessor.
