Something is very wrong.
I wish they would release the project they tested so I could test for myself.

i don't understand your surprise. the 1 second difference between the i5 3470, 980x and 2600K is negligible but the QX6700 beating the GX-6100; well seriously bulldozer was a step back for AMD for cpu performance. C2Q and Phenom II x4/6 were leaving them in the dust.

This is a fair statement but wrong at the same time. AMD took a look in their crystal ball with the FX and built a chip for the way they think software development will go in the future. The real horsepower of the FX might well not be realized for the design for another full generation. However I give them credit for the guts to try.

As to if they were right or not, look at what we are seeing happen. newer programs are slowly seeing the FX performance inch close to the Intel. The results would seem to indicate that AMD is right but the right now is what is holding them down.

Sometimes we need to take a step back today in order to take a step forward tomorrow, Intel learned this with the Pentium IV.

I was playing with my 3470 today and this was my first stable. It's not even sweating, ran Tomb Raider on Max and it didn't break 38C. Got too tired after work so I napped, gonna get it up to x40 tomorrow or maybe get 4.0Ghz with a x38 and some Bus changing. Hope this helps.

no. statement is entirely correct. no mattter how you want to sugar coat it; it is nothing short of embarrassing that AMD released an arch that was sub par to the previous generation; esp given all the hype. and just as it was a year ago when everyone on the green team screamed it was the OS scheduling fault and that a patch would correct it, which didn't, or the new OS (win8) would correct it, which again didn't, it is still ludicrous to pay for hardware that doesn't work well with software in hopes that the software will change.
TOPIC: Mercury Research Q4 PC Processor market share update.
Quote:
For all of 2012, Intel’s market share was 82.5 percent, up two points from 2011. AMD’s share declined 1.9 points to 16.9 percent, while VIA’s share was unchanged at 0.5 percent.
esp. when that hardware has less than 20% market share. so think about who software devs are going to worry about? so much for hoping about the future.

as much as piledriver made up some ground that bulldozer gave up it is still only close to the general performance of the first generation on icore processors of intel's let alone sandy bridge. AFAIK with the latest "rumors", it is about another year before steamroller is released. so it will be quite sometime before anyone can see what improvements that will hold. but it will need to have in the ballpark of 15%-20% of an improvement to come close to ivy bridge. in the meantime haswell will be released and from the testing of engineering samples it will have ~7% increase in performance.
Core i7-4770K: Haswell's Performance, Previewed

AMD can get compared to nothing but itself anymore, a good "budget" alternative to intel @ lower price points, that is all. 2006 is over like this discussion was a year ago. now thank you very much for your well thought out reply to my post but it really doesn't have to do with which processor would be a better benefit for after effects.


cheers.

You should go for the fx8320, despite the 3470 having higher ipc, the pildriver should make up for that being able to overclock higher. Not to mention I don't see much of a difference between the 3770k and my fx 8350 in the real world, maybe in benches they do give difference results but both are playable, not to mention more games are gettting more threaded, hence the fx 8350 will have nice gains in the future I presume.

im surprised at those results because I also have an i5 2310 and phenom II X4.
Out of the three, my FX6100 scored the highest in cinebench 11.

I mostly use photoshop and after effects, but Im starting to learn cinema4d. I guess the FX is beneficial for cinema4d.


I have an HTPC with Pentium G550 and H61 motherboard, will the i5 3470 work good on the H61 at stock speeds?
that would be cheaper for me since I can just sell the G550 and keep my FX6100 at the same time.

FX 6100 was a Bulldozer and it was a flop since AMD overcalculated. It was a great design with some flaws but Piledriver(Bulldozer 2.0) fixed all of those so FX 8320 is a Piledriver so you won't be dissapointed for multi-threading and it can compete with i7 3770k while it beats i5 3570k in most games 8/10. Fact.

Where did you see that the FX-8320 beats the i5-3570K in most games?

he's full of it....his 5 posts are nothing but AMD praise and that somehow it's more future proof than a i7 3770k which beats AMD in everything....AMD can only be congratulated on catching up

Both cpus are the same price in my country, so Im having a hard time to decide.

The i5 wins majority of the benchmarks here but Im not entirely convinced since the FX can overclock if needed.
http://www.anandtech.com/show/6396/the-vishera-review-amd-fx8350-fx8320-fx6300-and-fx4300-tested/4


What kind of performance increase can I expect coming from an FX6100?
Which CPU would be faster in Adobe After Effects? particulary when rendering the RAM Preview

I would say that the question is, are you willing to overclock the FX to its full potential?

If yes, then the intel isn't going to perform as well in comparison.
