cpu for sketchup

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
ok here how it is,
i as a archtiect have been using i5 2400 for now and think it runs skethcup well. not much as my expectation but well runs gud than rest of my frnds' systems. now i m going to upgrade and i had fx8350 in my mind so that if steamroller is exceptionally gud ( i have high hopes this time) i will upgrade. but now haswell has been launched and its better with around 50% improvement over amd. i m looking at 4770 not the unlocked version as i will never overclock. sketchup is a 3d application. its 32 bit and uses single core.
i m looking ot run this system for atleast 3 years and kind of an amd fan. not very hardcore but yes i will like an amd machine. most of the benches tell fx is quite gud for money when using 3d apps but not for single core. now sketchup is a 3d app but single core which is completlely not the case for the rest of 3d apps out there.
can anyone benchmark skethcup is some sort of way telling me how it will perform in both systems. i know fx8350 might be behind but will it be worth not regretting putting extra money in i7 4770?

The 4770 will definitely put the 8350 to shame since SketchUp is single threaded. That being said, it (Google SketchUp) can also use OpenGL, so if you've got a powerful videocard you may see better performance out of that.

Yep you'll get a more accurate, anti-aliased view of your models with discrete graphics. I'd probably upgrade that first.

but rendering is more resource intensive and i was thinking to put the exttra money saved with amd into graphic card. i know amd will lag behind but i m on a tight budget of around of 1500 dollars at max. in india everything is costlier than usa so here the parts will be more expensive. these 1500 dollars also included monitor. i m really not sure if the haswell is worth the extra money. its here almost 2/5 extra than fx 8350. and then i have also high hopes for steamroller. in rendering apps fx and haswell are in tight competition. so i m really thinking if putting a high end graphic card will help with fx? or a medium range graphic card with haswell
