On behalf of AMD users, myself included, please stop the nonsense. thumb.gif

Try your best to read your many posts from an unbiased point of view and you will see how ridiculous you sound.

STOP IT.

Try to offer unbiased advice or stick to amdzone if that site is still up. This guy just wants advice, nothing more.

There's no confirmation SR will blow PD out of the water or even Gulftown! In the same way i've seen people giving advice to nehalem (BLOOMFIELD!) owners to upgrade when IVB comes instead of SB because it will presumably "blow SB out of the water hard", seriously it just didn't happen.
After all tons of engineers with PhDs worked on nehalem wink.gif

FX 8350 has 8 real core's, just in each module one core is weaker thus cost effective but also giving superior multi-threaded performance with real core's and it beats Intel's hyperthreading design/architecture...

double doh.gif


Why get a newer, slower processor, when the older one is probably better in 90% of applications?

I don't know how those FX chips perform, but I know how well a 980X can perform and you'll be set for a while. Well I don't have a 980X, but w3680 sounds cooler tongue.gif

Even if Steamroller turns out to be amazing 990FX is already 2 years old, so regardless of how long AM3+ stays alive there will better chipsets and boards for future AMD chips.

ha! You lot still ranting on biggrin.gif

The chip is second hand and with a unknown use. £300 is a lot of money, and I only saw 2 on ebay, that tells me its a good chip, but what if it does fail later?

The 2 second hand chips were £400 plus. So if it fails, another £400 it will cost to get back to where he had started redface.gif

I have never stated on this thread the power of the 980x was lesser than the FX-8350 - period!

But spending that money on chip without a warranty would take me out of my comfort zone .

And looking at that chart the FX-8350 doesn't do to bad and once again read what the poster said -

To tell the truth I just play Starcraft 2 and overclock from time to time, but nothing hardcore

Im not here to argue what is the better - we know 980x !

So would you buy an old car and hope for the best - no warranty but it goes quicker than a brand new mini - put your ... ha! comon guys thumb.gif

sorry chaps getting tired - excuse the bad typing redface.gif

And is there an edit control for a post that has been submitted ?
There is. FX8350 will be 20-30% nearer IF the application is highly highly threaded. If it's threaded even further the 980x will run miles further again
And don't forget who gets the best gains while OC'd wink.gif The 8350 only gets a mere 20% boost @ 5GHz (You would need a WC loop for sure)
Checking HWBot the average OCs for air is 4.5GHz and that's a NEARLY 50% boost. Sure it might eat more power but that's one hell of a OC gain biggrin.gif (I doubt the gulftown would be chewing more power than the 8350)
