I bought an i3 for my new haswell gaming desktop just so I could get on the Z87 platform and in a few months upgrade to an i7. But for now its a perfectly legit CPU that will demolish a FX in single threaded performance. If some one buys a i3 on z87 they have a phenomenal upgrade path that will last for years (talking the ability to update to a haswell i7) with FX your only upgrade path is to a FX 8 core which is not that much stronger.
Funny you call him out as fanboy and your comment is worse. The i3 is no match whatsoever to the 6300 or 8350 outside of single thread and minimal power usage (which is obvious from less cores) and that is it. For 90% of activities i3 would be a far worse choice over the FXs. Now enter the i5s it gets alittle closer to being a comparison and the i7 a completely different discussion.

Where did I call him a fanboy? Exactly I dident.

He said the fx 6300 demolishes the i3. I got on him for showing benchmarks of an outdated i3 and not the newer one which is what this thread is about. Also The 6300 hardly demolishes it. I know I have owned both.

Upon looking at other sites the story remains the same. The FX wins some and loses some......hardly demolishing.

P.S. Keep in mind thats just the Ivy i3 the haswell i3 is even better by around 5-10%

Well it can't do frame interpolation or any handle complex pixel shaders without dropping frames, but for simple decoding it's fine. It can even handle sharpening the image in real time without dropping frames (anything more than that is when the frames start dropping.)

I disagree.

Unless you play games or render ALL the time, you won't notice much difference, considering the strong single thread performance of the i3.

Even if you play games, source engine and older games would run just fine on the i3.

If you are playing newer games and your are bottlenecked by your CPU, then obviously you are doing something wrong (just grab a cheap locked i5 or FX8).

Give us some leaks on the Steam Roller already. Hopefully AMD brings what they promised (~30% increase in IPC).

I won't upgrade my CPU until 2015-2016-ish, if AMD offers something competitive by then I might switch back.

How about all around not just some old 2 core games. You still miss the point. i3 is not a viable contender to either of the 2 FXs you mentioned and an all around poor choice against them. I see for some pre-made computers but for someone to go out and actual purchase on given the options at price, not viable. Maybe they should just spend the extra $20 and get an i5 at minimum if they are fearful of an AM3+ lifespan. But an argument for an i3 against 6-8 core FXs is a poor one.

Oh look he posted some bar-charts for old games that hardly use more than 2 cores rolleyes.gif

Again you accuse me. Man I said follow the conversation. I compared the FX 6300 the the old gen i3 for a reason, to make a point.
I also compared the FX 6300 to the i3 3220 if you will read below.
