I'm a little confused regrading AMD FX 8350

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have been told many times that FX 8350 is good at multi-threaded apps. I know what multi-threaded apps mean. But how many cores count as multi-threaded?

So 2 cores or 4 or 6 or 8? Or does Fx 8350 only work well when the app uses 8 cores?

If each thread gets assigned a core, then it will use x amount of thread/cores it needs.

It works just like Hyperthreading for the Intel side. Not every program is going to use all the threads available to it. Most games only use 2 or 4 max. Usually it's the audio, video, and graphics programs that are going to make better use of more threads/cores.
