[Various] AMD Piledriver FX-Series CPU Reviews (Vishera FX-8350, FX-8320, FX-6300, FX-4300) - Page 179

Anyone have a link to some decent test results for video encoding/transcoding for the 8350? Would love to see a clock for clock comparison with the 3770k if one exists.

It's taxing on your CPU, not your GPU. MMOs in general are not taxing on GPUs, with 1 player or 1000. What you're describing is a CPU bottleneck. You can easily see this....

You know what... I'm just not even going to bother, as suggested by three other posters seperately by PM. You sit in your own little world. Have fun in there.

Yes, but I doubt that was a serious question.

So obviously it doesn't stand up to the i7, but is that really THAT bad? I've been thinking of getting a second 670, but everyone says NOOOOOO it's horrible with that setup! But I really don't think that looks too terrrible... am I missing something?

As I've said countless times, in games that can utilise all of the available cores in an FX series CPU they perform very very close to the Intel chips.

Problem is that games that can and do use that any threads are few and far between.

Frost Bite 2 is very multi-threaded engine so you won't need an ultra fast CPU to get the most out of it.

CryEngine 3 is also very multi-threaded and doesn't require loads of CPU grunt for maximum performance.

There's another few game engines that are very mutli-threaded, Capcoms Framework engine, GTA4, Dirt 3.....

The problem being is that for every game that's highly multi-threaded there's 100's of them that isn't...

Every time an Intel fanboy slags of FX's CPU gaming performance the same thing always happens, AMD fanboys always bring up BF3 and Crysis 2... which are 2 of kind in terms of CPU core scaling.

People need to realise there's more games then just BF3 and Crysis 2

Wanting to pull the trigger on a 6300 worried about future bottlenecks on graphics cards upgrades xfire and what not.

I tend to focus so much on BF3 in these benchmarks because it's pretty much the only game I play a lot of. That and GW2. Once every couple of months I'll play Skyrim again if I'm not in the mood for multiplayer. And once every few months I'll pick up some other game, play it, beat it, and then go back to BF3 and GW2.

But not everyone is the same. So I guess they have to evaluate what games they play before deciding what to buy now a days. I miss the days where you can just go by recommended specs of the most recent game released and be good for a couple of years.

I have been thinking of getting Borderlands 2. What engine is that one using?

Exactly, I play a broad range of games that range from new games to game as old as the original Quake so I need a CPU that can give me good performance no matter what engine the games running on.

Borderlands 2 CPU performance tested
