FX8150 to FX8350 is it worst it?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hi, i have a FX8150, and seeing some reviews and it look like PD its better than BD like 10-15% depending on the game or app.

but talking in real world usage, would i notice a difference?
other question is, some of u guy that went from FX8150 or FX8120 to FX8350, did u see any increase on your GPU usage? and less spikes at least on BF3 or Starcraft2? for example my FX8150 at stock keep my XFX 7950 on BF3 usually from 85% to 90% , would i be able to get higher GPU usage upgrading to the FX8350? according to Techreport, the FX8350 expend less time after the 50ms and that leads to a better gameplay (smoothness).

thanks

Bulldozer was a flop. People actually bought the Phenom II X6's over the first generation FX chips because they didn't fare well. The new Piledriver FX-8320/8350 will be significantly faster.

Gaming wise you'll also see an increase. The FX-8350 is generally on-par with the i5 3570k in newer games like Far Cry 3, Battlefield 3, Sleeping Dogs, F1 2012, Dirt Showdown, and the list goes on and on. By on-par I mean within a ~5FPS difference with the same video cards.

The higher base clock speed of the 8350 when compared to the 8150 makes the 8350 look better than it really is in many reviews. IPC went up but it wasn't a huge leap. In my opinion it really depends on how much you can sell that 8150 for to see if it would be worth the upgrade.

thanks for the help, but i dont want to be rude, im non english person, but most of you guys have intel CPU, what you are saying is based on Reviews... i more in the side of real usage, like if some one went from FX8150 to FX8350... i would like you please, if you dont mind me asking
to read my first post again, thanks.

how high can you get your FX8150 with safe temperature and stable clockspeed?
If you can get past 4.2 ghz, keep your cpu for now and wait for steamroller.

If the 8350 is indeed on par with the 3570K then it is much better than the 8150. I had an 8120 at 4GHZ and sold it to buy a 3570K which I keep at stock speeds and got double the FPS in games like World of Warcraft which are cpu heavy.

I had an 8120 @ 4.7GHz, and I bought an 8350 which can pull in some really high clocks (see the validation in my sig.) I keep it at 5.1 most of the time, even though there's no real need for it. The performance increase was quite noticeable for me. General computing, rendering, gaming, you name it.

Long story short, I'm very happy with it, but I definitely won the silicon lottery... Like, all of it.

A good way to compare is to compare the 8150 with the 8320 since theyre basically the same clocks. When you do that with the Anandtech bench you see that the 8320 is a good bit faster in almost every benchmark. Now it might not be worth it from a dollars to performance standpoint especially if you have an extremely high overclocking 8150.

But at the end of the day, a 8320 will be faster and there wont be any new AMD chips til 2014 so there is no point in waiting for them. And since you mention having some problems with a couple games then it might be worth it to you to go ahead and upgrade. Maybe not worth it in the dollars to performance like I said but then a better performing rig is worth a lot to me. I say go for it if youve got the cash.
