AMD FX-6300 X6 @ 4.2GHz vs my 1055T @ 4.2GHz. What is the best for gaming? - Page 3  

post #21 of 166
Very simple math bro.

FX-8350 is on par with the 3570k and even the 3770k sometimes. In general performance ofcourse. Gaming there is a different story, some games are single or dual core threaded max so they rely heavily on IPC, which Intell will win. But most games are being coded for 6+cores which will level the playing feild for both chips and may even give a slight advantage to the FX.

As it sits right now though FX-8350 is a beast and about on par with the 3570K So you are left with the following math.

Intel Path

----Sabertooth Mother board $249

----Intel 3570K $220

----Total = $469

Stick with AMD

---Sabertooth board $0.00 (You already own it)

---FX-8350 $220

---Total = $220




So is the barely if any performance gonna matter enough to justify an extra $249? No freaking way in my book. The only way a 3570K switch would be worth it to you is if you downgraded on your board when switching over.


You wanna know if a FX-8350 will bottleneck go to the vishera owners thread and ask those guys, they are OCing all those beasts and loving them.

1) You're obviously upset because you spent money on a GPU upgrade and saw barely any gain in performance.
2) You think the culprit is your AMD system because Anandtech CPU reviews would have you believe that AMD is rubbish for gaming.
3) You conclude that AMD sucks and it's time to go Intel.
But you made a serious mistake. It's NOT your CPU that's limiting you right now. The truth is, the 7870 isn't that much faster than a 560TI especially in BF3. The HD7870 is 6 frames per second faster than the 560TI. Let's not forget that the 7870 isn't that great of an overclock candidate. The 560TI can see up to 1GHZ from its stock 822MHZ clock with a good board and that puts it more in line with a 7870.
So let's figure out the real problem. Your X6 at 4.2GHZ is not your problem. Your problem is you spent money on basically a 10% upgrade in GPU power. The money you spend on an i5 and Z77 board would roughly cost you $300-400 USD in upgrades. If you spent that on a 7950 or a GTX 660 TI, you would see some REAL performance gains.

Im basing my assumptions on MSI afterburner gpu usage graph. my 560TI was over 90% ALLWAYS. While my 7870 at 1175MHz on core stays around 70%

Also i didnt buy the mobo and cpu yet.

I heard only the sabertooth R2 supports 8350. i got the first Sabertooth...

What resolution? The HD 7870 is a better card, so obviously BF3 isn't maxing it out?

Do you have any lag at all? If your frames are consistent then its probably some background process messing things up.

You heard wrong yours spports it just fine.

Considering your awesome sabertooth board supports Vishera its definitely not worth the move to Intel, unless you downgrade your board.

Single threaded: Intel
Multi-threaded: Either

But from using AMD chips, it can handle whatever game I throw at it. and never dips under 30 fps smile.gif Thats both the old FX-6100 and Phenom 1045T OCed. So in terms of capability it does the job as long as you overclock it

Most new games use multi-threading so the difference will be minimal.

For me though dropping to 30fps is not acceptable as its borderline unplayable, ideally you want at least 40fps at absolute minimum....
post #30 of 166
It depends from person to person, I can't notice any difference above 30 fps. Under it and its a bit laggy.

My avg in BF3 is about 30 on big scenes, but other than that it gets to 40-50, and I can't notice the difference in terms of smoothness and responsiveness. But that's me smile.gif
