Upgrade from 8350 to 4770k worth it? - Page 2

I loved my 8350, it ran cool even at 5.19ghz with 1.53v. Near impossible to do with a 3770k. I know the Haswell cpus run pretty cool though. I personally say you get the 290. If you're still not happy, sell the mobo/cpu together on ebay or something and buy a haswell cpu/mb. But I'm sure you'll be happy with the 8350/290 combo.

My 8350 at 4.9 ghz was a freaking room heater compared to my 3770k at 4.5 ghz. The thing is, you dont have to run the 3770k at 5 ghz to better the performance of the 8350 at 5.19. I know all systems are different and I have even heard NVIDIA performs better on intel chips but i saw 20% or more in some games but never less than 10% from the upgrade.This is comparing in game benchmarks before and after. It goes without saying it benches much better. But the fact is, I dont have to take the 3770k to 5 ghz or even 4.5 for that matter to get all the performance I want. I cant say the same for the AMD rig. My thoughts are based on my builds in my sig, rigs are identical except the new one has a different mainboard (both sabertooths) and CPU (3770k vs 8350). So as usual your mileage may vary. But I will be building Intel rigs for my gaming builds from here forward. AMD setups can do the job, but not as well. It should also be noted i game in surround, that does make a difference.

Thanks guys. So it seems the consensus is that the Intel/Nvidia setup is quite a bit better. To be honest the fact that AMD, though they talk about wanting Mantle on Linux, has yet to adequately support the 290 on Linux is troubling, especially when the 780Ti is already well supported. I think, as of now, I'm going with Intel and Nvida.

Well the 780ti is very similar to a 780 and titan; not necessarily in performance but they all share the same die and architecture as far as I know... So the gk110 has been out for almost a year compared to hawaiian islands which has been out for about three weeks. Linux support will come.

If you are going the more expensive route, why not a few 290s for 100 more? Some even unlock to 290x's with a bios flash... powercolor looks to have a decently high success rate.

*edit* dunno how crossfire is in linux.... Maybe thats a bad route lol. But I still think a 290 non x with a 4770k is the way to go... 300 dollars less and you probably would never notice the performance difference... Especially if you get lucky and unlock it.

Okay, so the 4770k is obviously better, but is it more in the 5-10fps range or massively better.

In sc2, the lead for Haswell is like 40-50% or even more. It's hard to say, because the performance lead is so big that pretty much nobody in the community uses an FX cpu to benchmark against

I actually play a lot of SC2, WoW, and Diablo, so that makes a HUGE difference to me. As for the multiple 290's, I would, but the Linux drivers are currently crap according to the article that I linked before, and I trust that site. With the 290 currently performing at the same level as a 760, the 780Ti is a no brainer. I also prefer to run higher end single card configurations, especially in Linux, just because driver issues can always crop up out of nowhere.

buy two R9's problem solved, money saved, gaming performance of the chart.

no???

What would be the problem with CF on Linux ? never used it, cant tell.
The new XDMA technology on the R9 290 should wipe away a lot of past time problems.

If you want the best and can afford it. you'll know what to do.
I know what it says under my name. but I ain't in denial

I'm not interested in the 290x until the get the noise/heat issues under control. I also don't know if I truly believe CrossFireX is 100% fixed either. On the other hand, The GTX 780 TI is such a sweet and refined looking card smile.gif

I Don't know why you don't just keep the FX8350 and get the GTX 780 TI.

More and more games are starting to scale really well to the 8 core CPU.. Was just playing NFS rivals and it was running perfectly balanced at under 50% in all CPUs.

" AMD’s current flagship host processor really does favor Nvidia's graphics technology. Whoops."
