Also you will not get a bottleneck with an 8350 and 2 7970's, much to most people's disappointment the 8350 is very similar to a 3570k clock for clock in gaming


AMD cpu and CF or SLI is a NO NO.

You will not be bottlenecked, As stated above, we have seen tri 7970's running perfectly fine on an 8350.

Dream on.
I am not going to get into an argument about "I know this person and it works"

I had a phenom II 940BE and a Thurban. Fine for single GPU, crossfire is a waste of money.

I suppose you have a friend who knows different though.

http://www.overclock.net/t/1333027/amd-fx-8350-vs-i5-3570k-delidded-single-gpu-and-crossfire-gpu


the FX 83xx won't bottlekneck 2 7970's on it's own it's more then capable of running them to full potential.


the SB 950 chipset doesn't have enough bandwidth to do it, The hyper transport can't supply 1 x16+ 1 x8 bandwidth let alone 2* x16

If only the 8350 was on a better chipset.

if it were 2 7870's it wouldn't be a data throughput problem and as such the 8350 would be a great chip to crossfire or sli on

someone on OCN is using the 8350 and 4 7970's and is managing next to no bottleneck, it's interesting at least to me biggrin.gif but for 2 7970's? i don't really think it will given that other people are having next to no trouble using that configuration smile.gif

Oh yes I'm sure they run without problem, but if he put in an i5 there would be a big difference in performance. Running high end gpus on amd is a waste of money.












http://vr-zone.com/articles/amd-fx-8350-vs-intel-core-i7-3770k--4.8ghz--multi-gpu-gaming-performance/17494-2.html

Fanboys don't normally bother me, but when people are giving out bad advice out of loyalty to a brand then it's a step too far.
You could learn the hard way and try AMD cpu then an Intel and see for yourself OR you could ignore the charts above and rely on what a friend of a friend says.

Stick with 1 gpu is my advice.

Maybe amd of old but the 8350 is fine read the source i supplied, i did this thread because i was sick of the bs floating around, i noticed massive differences of what review sites said an 8350 could do to what i was getting. the sad reality is that the majority of review sites are sponsored by intel and get paid to do the review... An impartial review goes out the window at this point...

That has to be the worst post i have read in a while. C'mon dude, really?
Obviously you have no clue how 4-way CF works. Please dont post incorrect information.

Then you don't have a clue what you are on about. No insult. Anyone who have tried both camps of late, the difference in single gpu is minor, in multi gpu is MASSIVE.

Oh and I notice you have 2 x 7970s. Get a cheap i5 and you will notice the difference immediately from your current rig, promise. Money well spent.

EVEN at 4GHZ a FX-8350 won't bottleneck a 7970/GTX 680. EVEN with CROSSFIRED 7970's it will not bottleneck. Look @ this thread done by two members. It was locked due to a bad case of the fan boys. The thread creators had to request that their thread get locked because 3 people constatly complained about the games they reviewed.


http://www.overclock.net/t/1333027/amd-fx-8350-vs-i5-3570k-delidded-single-gpu-and-crossfire-gpu


Also look @ TechSpots Far Cry 3 benchmarks, the FX-8350 sits 1 FRAME behind the Ivy Bridge Core i5.



Not to mention red1776 who runs QUAD-FIRE 7970's and doesn't get any ridiculously large amount of bottlenecking. He's sitting up in this chart with the kings that own 3930k's. A LEGEND AMONG MEN. Or simply someone who didn't buy into the ridiculous BS that's been spread through-out this site recently.






Honestly, I could give two cares whether you buy Intel, AMD, or even VIA but for the love of all that's good...please stop spouting a bunch of ridiculously false information around. All it does is cause mass confusion. Nobody can suggest a FX-8350 on this site without getting a bunch of ridiculous non-sense being said about it. It's a good processor that directly competes with the 3570K. Piledriver isn't Bulldozer...

I am disappoint.


BTW this Crysis 3 BETA drivers are completely irrelevant. the FX-8350 does much better than the FX-8150 in gaming. They're completely different processors.
