I have searched for benchmarks directly comparing the two in the same hardware environment and I've yet to find one, so can you indulge me?

Huge upgrade. OC vs OC

13 GB/s vs 25GB/s for Memory Bandwidth
....pretty much just take the Phenom II and double it all around.

@OP:

If this is your motherboard:

I wouldn't put an 8 core on your motherboard, especially if you were thinking of overclocking it.

I know that the 8350 is on the compatibility list, but I still wouldn't risk it unless you have some kind of additional cooling on the VRM's.


I'm actually surprised / impressed that you've got a Phenom II to 4GHz on it!tongue.gif



If you needed more convincing to jump ship apart from performance, then this is it redface.gif
Unfortunately, there are no good mATX boards on the AMD side for AM3 at the moment frown.gif
