This is what some AMD fans have to resort to? Specifically selecting all the benchmarks where the 8350 beats the 3570k to trick people into buying it.

While I do wonder why your first post on OCN was this one ^^^^^ I must agree with you wholeheartedly. FX is not as good of a gaming processor as Ivy Bridge. It's not bad, but it's not great either. cherry picking multithreaded benchmarks to give the illusion of superior performance is quite shameful.

Ya, that was my first post here because I didn't like the dishonesty with the video and I noticed it was linked here. I may stick around have more helpful posts.

Edit: Looking at original post. OP wanted best gaming performance, 3570k is the clear winner in this case. Better gaming performance in most games and much less power consumption to boot.

Come on guys, QUIT POSTING VIDEOS, no one is going to watch them.

Post some real life benchmarks run by well respected tech websites that show performance in different things, especially fps in games. The reason you should be going to well respected places is because they usually use all the same hardware when comparing, except for the mobo and cpu (duh) whilst some places will use 2 separate rigs, and dont have the same specs.

After reading all this rubbish and bashing let me just say this...

As an owner of the FX-8350 (having just upgraded from an 8120) the FX is a great cpu overall, and was quite a bump for me over my 8120. However, the OP asked about gaming, and at the moment, overall the i5 is clearly superior. A lot of games are still unfortunately threaded like crap, so the single threaded performance is a huge bump in the i5's favor for those games, (think Skyrim, WoW, SC2, etc.)

However, for 90% of games out there, you will absolutely see no difference in performance as the majoirty of games are GPU bound.

I do rendering/encoding, photoshop and happen to always multitask like crazy (don't own 16gb's of ram for nothing afterall wink.gif), so already owning an 970 based motherboard, my choice was simple.. a cpu swap vs mobo and cpu swap. Besides the fact that for my uses, the 8350 is the better option performance wise, let alone the fact that I'm still using the same motherboard and that the cpu after piledriver will be available as an upgrade for it as well. So down the road, for even better performance I'll just throw in a steamroller cpu and be set thumb.gif

It all boils down to what it will be used for and if gaming is the main goal, i5 hands down.

I know, for gaming alone i5, but if you do more than gaming, grab an amd cpu. I dont bash amd at all, I dont think they did good with the first generation fx cpus, but the vishera processors seem better. What I dont like is people, from both sides, that cherry pick results and it just spreads lies.

my e-peen is getting smaller with all these i5 3570k owners. get an FX8350 be different!

but seriously. I will never recommend an AMD cpu. i wouldn't waste my time saying why. get an i5 3570k and be done with it.

WRONG. I would recommend the Fx 8350 for a server based environment and not gaming. For gaming which requires good single threaded performance look towards intel. This is to be fair.
