Building a New Computer ~~ Which CPU? Intel i5 3570k OR AMD FX8350??? - Page 14

That uses a stock clock for the Intel.

3.6 Ghz clock vs AMD's stock speed. I recently borrowed someone's work station that was built within the last few weeks. I then swapped out my cooker for a RASA and bumped the speed up to a hair more than 4 Ghz and benched them again. Real world benches, not that silly stuff. I let them both encode a 5 minute 1080 p video. The Intel finished about 10.5 sec. faster than the AMD, Photoshop was about a level playing field. I couldn't tell which was faster when applying heavy filters or doing CPU intensive crunches, the Intel did marginally better. Running large projects in Cakewalk software yielded interesting results; the Intel would perform better during certain parts for about 75% of the piece/file, whereas the AMD processor didn't do as well. The CPU choked, but my test was a little biased as some of my files are incredibly complex/large. However, Cakewalk does perform better with a pro card. I employ an M-AUDIO Audiophile 192, which was excellent when it first came out. The AMD used an Apogee production card, which should smoke mine. The tests had small drive bias. I run 2009-2010 revision WD drives, this AMD was using the latest drive tech. I do not own any SSD drives, but I would be interested to see how they would perform then.

What I'm trying to say is it is possible. The 920 is still a powerful CPU for the average person. I'm due for an upgrade, but I'm stuck in a limbo with LGA 2011 being useless with Ivy-E in its future and nothing else. That and the price of a 3930K isn't pleasant, even if NCIX had it for almost $100 off today.

I have no hate for AMD. I used AMD in its prime. If money isn't an issue, I say go with Intel. If it is, get the Vishera. What I liked about the Vishera is my home office didn't turn into a sauna when I was running the video encoding benchmarks. I don't do benches on video games because my work aside from my career is professional based, not gaming. So how a computer handles rendering, encoding and processing of images matters far more than if I can get 200 FPS+ in BF3 or however much you can get in it.

I happened to come across this review while skimming through AnandTech.com this morning, I offer it as more information for the OP to review. http://www.anandtech.com/show/6396/the-vishera-review-amd-fx8350-fx8320-fx6300-and-fx4300-tested

Jesus Christ guys, I actually sold the computer listed on my account for $650! So I have already bought most of my components...And I come back to 110 Unread Posts!!! LOL !!! biggrin.gif

Thanks Guys

Sorry to the AMD supporters, but I have went out and bought an i5 3570K on ebay for $196.00 and my AsRock Extreme4 Z77 for $105.

I believe that I have saved the most money for what I bought! Thank You for your informational input guys!

Good choice. 
I hate to say that, but intel is really taking a streak of dump on amd, right now.

Welcome back to your thread biggrin.gif. I am happy that you were able to get the components you got at the price you got them at! Enjoy your new system!

Thanks Guys!!!

I've been using my dad's laptop, which has a second gen i5 in it, but if I even tried to put a game on this thing he would cut my head off tongue.gif !!!!

Still waiting on a video card sale, and trying hard to get a Corsair 500r, saw the white one for $70, but I think I need a black one...

But Number 1 on the list is a case!!! Thanks guys!

If you're overclocking with a really GOOD cooler get a 2550k.

Yes, I have skipped out on the Corsair H60 or Antec Kuler 620 for a Cooler Master Hyper 212 + for only $15.
I will probably be overclocking to 4.2 for now, until I become a little more experienced...
