8350 or Sandy Bridge-E, for Titan Sli/7970 Quad Crossfire.

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
Would an FX 8350 be better for either setup, or Intel x79 chipset(3820 /3930k), also would the 8350 experience any bottle necking or problems? I currently have an FX 8350, and wanting to know if i have to upgrade.

Calm down, your first post was only half an hour ago. Next time wait at least 12 hours before bumping.

Now, to answer your question, anything that's X79 will crush whatever AMD has to offer at the moment. I believe, however, X79 will handle whatever you're going to throw at it GPU wise. I don't think an 8350 will handle quad cfx or quad sli Titans.

If you're spending $2k on Titans or similarly 7970s, then yeah, upgrade to x79....

Hard to say really, I think the 8350 would be pretty strong but quad 7970...thats a tough one. I would put money on a 3930k handling it fine, seen as how we dont have any better CPUs out at the moment wink.gif

Which resolution are you looking at? I assume your after 1440p and dual monitor?

This. The most I'd do with an 8350 would be possibly two 7950's in crossfire. But for higher end cards than that, you'll want either the 4770k when its released, or Sandy-E (upgrading to Ivy-E when its released).

The 8350 is a solid processor from what I've seen, but it just isn't going to hang in there with that much graphical horsepower.

As for the 8350 (since you already own it), I'd say its ok for dual high-end cards, but adding a third would result in a bottleneck.

You won't have the same FPS in the high-end spectrum as the Intel setup, but it will be plenty enough.

Although its not really fair to compare it to a X79 setup, since you can get the 8350, mobo, Ram for the price of a 3930K.

Thanks everyone, i guess I'm upgrading to the 3820, and will probably get ivy bridge-E later when it releases. thumb.gif

I know what you meant when you said quad sli Titans. Don't worry smile.gif

Yea, as others have said, if you're gonna spend $2k on GPUs, might as well splurge for the CPU. And I do hope you're not using a single 1080p monitor.

The 3820 is quad core, I dont think that is gonna be enough for quad 7970 although I may be wrong. I think the consensus is that a six core 3930K may be needed for this setup.
