Amd FX 8320? Intel 3570k? Or wait for Haswell?  

post #1 of 142
Thread Starter 
As title says I'm upgrading from 775 (Yes I know It's about time) and was wondering Which I should go with. I'm aware that 1155 will be dead after Haswell Releases and i'm trying to decide If it's worth the wait or should I go ahead and go with either a 3570K or a FX 8320. I will be overclocking and Gaming I play everything from League of Legends to Battlefield. So I won't just be playing one game. I DO NOT care about benchmarks unless it's relevant. The power consumption of the 8320 is what is pushing me away from Amd at the moment but I want all of your opinions on whether it's worth it, or if it's not go with the 3570k or maybe wait for haswell.. Thanks in advance!

They are both good cpu.
I have a phenom 955 atm, and if I would change my cpu now, I would go with the i5 3570k.
On the other hand, the fx seems to do very well too. The cpu is about 30$ less (15% or so) then the i5.
The fx is more powerful with multitasking and has 8 core.
As a future proof cpu, I think I would go fx due to the 8 core (not sure thought)

I5 will provide you better fps, but at this point they are not noticeable
Your call to be honest.

I'd go Intel either way if you're just gaming; you could get a 2500k to save a few bucks VS a 3570k if price is a deal breaker.

As for if you should wait, well that's up to you really / depends on how happy you are with your current setup.
Are you able to play your games to your satisfaction etc? If so then you may as well wait it out a little longer and jump on the new hotness train.

I probably won't wait on a count of my Q8200 is not standing up well in newer games showing it's age.. I just didn't know how much of a leap haswell will be and if it was really worth waiting. I also love that the 3570k Draws half the power of a 8320. To be completely honest I was looking for any reason possible to go back to AMD but I still can't seem to find one.

The only (non-moral/ethical/sentimental) reason I can see to go AMD for gaming is if you want an APU or a longer lasting socket. Intel has socket ADHD or something (partly due to tick-tock).

If you were using it for productivity (multi-thread), the FX-8320 is a good value, even if it cannot match the i7-3770k in brute performance.

I'm waiting for haswell. AMD are still in the same position in terms of performance since Phenom II x6 which started back in 2010.

BF3 will use up to 8 cores if that means anything to you, intel does have higher IPC tho.... for BF3 I'd either go with the 8350 or a 3770k.....

What are you on about?? The fx 83** are incredibly close to the i5 in gaming and beat them in multithreaded tasks Source http://www.overclock.net/t/1333027/amd-fx-8350-vs-i5-3570k-delidded-single-gpu-and-crossfire-gpu

Honestly OP you can wait for haswell but no one is sure yet what the performance increase is going to be, some have suggested that it might only offer a small gain over ivy but with big power savings others have suggested big gains but no one really knows.

I went for the fx 8350 and there is nothing it cannot handle that I have thrown at it, yes if you play a game that can only handle single core then go intel as it is faster in single core games but really the fx does the job and does it very well.

Also if you have good cooling you won't have to delid the fx to get 4.8ghz which seems to be an average overclock on the them.

I found this in another thread : http://www.xbitlabs.com/news/cpu/display/20130117233616_Intel_Starts_Production_of_Next_Generation_Haswell_Microprocessors.html

If Haswell really does come out within March, I see no reason not to wait. Especially with 1155 dying out and all.

But, in case you just cant wait any longer, you should get a 3570K if it is only for gaming. And if you're worried about multi-threaded apps, you can always get a 3770K.

Also, about AMD, I think 8350 is the equivalent counterpart of 3570K, not 8320. If you want to get AMD and still get 3570K-ish performance, I think you should at least get an 8350.

Did you even read your own link?? at the very bottom it said:
