How far behind the 3570K is the AMD FX-8350? - Page 2

post #11 of 19
Unless you play planetside 2, a 8320 or a 6300 series processor would be fine.

Planetside 2 does NOT like weak single threads. Minecraft is the same way, but is less demanding overall... the 3570k may let you run more shader mods, but that's it really. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think some parts of MC servers scale across multiple cores though most remain in a single thread (or, in the case of singleplayer, all of it does, even though it also uses a client+server model).

If you can afford it, a 3570k or 4670k would last longer. Broadwell won't be any faster, and FX Steamroller would match it at best and is still a long way away... AMD doesn't even have it in their server roadmap yet. A used 2500k+mobo would be a nice option if you can find one to buy.

I'd say if your motherboard is compatible, then just do the drop-in upgrade. You most likely won't have to reinstall windows and all that mess.

hello,
don't know yet, with the next generation consoles coming with 8 threaded apu's for games (both xbox 720 and the ps4), the want for 8 thread's will happen, and if you think about it the fx 8350 will be doing twice the work if compaired to 4 threads, so its really the other way and the 3770 even better still.

its all about AMD gaming evolving you know. thumb.gif

It depends on what you're doing with the processor and how much you overclock. An 8350 can be up to 40 percent slower, give or take a few percentage points, if you're using crappy single-threaded software. Or it can even be faster than a 3570K, if you're doing something heavily multithreaded. As a gaming CPU, it can perform competitively, especially if you overclock to the ~4.4 GHz range that most people can reach with moderate cooling solutions, or especially to the ~4.8 GHz that super air-coolers and watercooling can achieve. Even at stock, it's not a bad performer, although the Ivy will be noticeably faster on games that can't use more than two cores.

BF3 is one game that is well-known for its ability to use multiple cores, and you will notice the difference in upgrading from a Phenom II.

I used to use an x6 Thuban running at 3.6 GHz, and I switched to the 8350, and it's noticeably faster even at stock. At 4.8, the 8350 blows the Thuban into the weeds. You'll be happy with it.

I'd go with the 8350 since you already have an AM3+ board.

I stuck my server's 4770K in my desktop for a week or so but really couldn't tell the difference for gaming or general usability, and run a similar single 6950 setup as you have in your sig.

Thank you all for helping. I went for the 8350, I saw them on Amazon for only $179.99 so I had to jump on the price drop. Should be a major performance increase.

Congrats on the purchase,i'm sure you'll be happy with your purchase!
Since i'm late in this thread,i'm just going to tell you my thoughs on that topic:
If you can do drop-in update - FX-8350 every day of the week
If you are building a new system - Usually i would say the i7-3770k or i5-3570k,even the Haswell architecture if you feel confident enough to delid because they run even hotter than IB.
