Upgrade time: from Phenom II X4 955 to what? - Page 4

Once I get it, I'll do some direct comparisons to the 955 system. Any benchmarks you guys would like to see?

Games will be tough since I don't have as many. My newest games are Far Cry 3, Tomb Raider, Sleeping Dogs, and Modern Warfare 3.

Ok I have a few things to say here I will link some definitive videos from someone that is a hardcore Intel fanboy and is also sponsored by Intel Linus from Linus techtips part 1 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ICVeN6WEGgg part 2 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uD6UcsVG56g
part 3 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YHnsfIJtZ2o he even says the AMD FX 8350 performs nearly as well as the I5 3570k ( even when overclocked ) and always remained in the good playable fps except in 1 anomaly he points out the price differences and even states the future of the AMD FX looks like its multithreaded capabilities will be put better to use since next gen consoles nearly have all been won by AMD with a custom 8core CPU / APU (dx11) setup for ps4 and xbox 720 since 90% of games are first made for console then ported over to PC this gives AMD an edge and also massive optimizations ( and a lot of much needed funds for R & D ) for multithreading and such lowering the amount of games using heavy single threded performance.

I also want to point out his tests were done very thoroughly with nearly all variables taken out he goes deeply into depth of things and explains everything is setup to be nearly identical in every way minus the Intel and AMD.

So if you want to talk trash about video links for AMD stuff this should end this because Linus is very well known for being a Intel fanboy thru and thru.

I also would like to point out with next gen consoles being AMD do you believe they will optimize games with the notorious dirty Intel compiler / CPU dispatcher http://www.agner.org/optimize/blog/read.php?i=49 scroll down till you see green then read this goes all the way to 5/2012 Intel compiler still doing it so it's very relative today remember almost all benchmarks / software / games use this Intel compiler / CPU dispatcher so once next gen consoles come into play a lot of the issues will be resolved and AMD will get a chance to show what is possible by them if you don't believe the Intel compiler issue then take a read of this http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2010/08/intel.shtm go down till you see this ( In addition, the FTC settlement order will require Intel to: ) then read it is directly mentioning this issue the US government had to step in on this subject and found it to be true and Intel is still releasing theyre compilers this way.

Dude, being sponsored by Intel and being an Intel fanboy are not the same thing.

apparently you dont know Linus because he admits being a Intel fanboy or you simply have not seen many of his videos because if you had you would understand why i said it like that he openly says he is a Intel fan and Nvidia fan yet never says he is a ATI / AMD fan

Choosing the option #1 was the obvious solution here. Such a good deal for an i7 and a ROG board.

Ivy would have been more expensive

Haswell would have been more expensive and isn't out yet

Piledriver doesn't offer the performance you ideally want.

E: also what is up with all these youtube reviews? I always seem to note they're extremely popular on sites like /g/ where people have no idea what they're doing. They usually contain a very minimal amount of info compared to proper reviews which is why I personally try to stay as far away from them as possible. That and most youtube personalities aren't exactly qualified compared to professional reviewers.

Enjoy your new toy! I have Intels and AMD's and I never get into the fanboy drama, either. I for one hope you get lots of joy from your decision. That's a beautiful mobo. Love the color scheme.
