Home Review - AMD FX 8320 4.5 vs Intel 3570k 4.5

post #1 of 78
Thread Starter 
Warning - This is merely a homely analysis, only expressing some benchmarks. Do not be offended or offend.

Intro


This review follows on from numerous discussions about what is the best option, FX 8320/50 or 3570K (4670k), seeking to offer a reliable and homely analysis, far from any economic pressure, which as we know, often is exerted on the best known "reviewrs".

It´s important to understand the characteristics of the companies when we analyze both material´s, AMD is tiny compared with Intel, the Intel budget just for ID, is probably three times the total annual budget of AMD, AMD is slightly larger than the Nvidia .

Therefore, we have to take into account this aspect to moderate the demands / expectations.

The tradition has almost always been, Intel with top machines and top price matching and AMD looking to be strong on price / performance market.

With the arrival of 1150, very little has changed in terms of performance, so, this analysis remains valid to compare the replacement of 3570K, 4670k, since the differences between them aren’t many.

The systems under consideration are composed:

Intel:

I5 3570k;
MSI Z77 GD65;
8GB 1866mhz;
7950/6970;
SSD OCZ Vertex 2 RAID0;
Bequiet DRP2.

AMD:

FX8320;
GA 970A-UD3;
8GB 1866mhz;
7950/6970;
SSD OCZ Vertex 2 RAID0;
Bequiet DRP2.

W764;13.4

Price VS


Both systems well composed and ready for OC:


1155

I5 4670k + MSI Z87 G43

360 USD


AMD3+:

FX 8320 + GA 970a UD3/Asus M5A97 R2.0

250 USD

(newegg prices)

So we are talking about a difference of 100 USD.

It is enough for a greater graphic´s card / SSD and so on.


Overclock


Intel:

Configure the Intel platform is very simple , everything follows the " Plug and Play "logic.

Essentially, the symbol K , identifies the processor with unlocked multiplier , so simply and roughly:
  • switch multi to the desired speed;
  • Disable Turbo and energy saving options;
  • Increase Cpu Core Voltage; System Agent Voltage e Cpu PLL;
  • Memory, plug and play logic again if they have XMP.

No tricks , simple and effective , the settings used in OC 4500mhz :

Cpu Ratio - x45;
Cpu Core Voltage - 1.19:
Cpu Pll - 1.6
Cpu I/o - 0.95;
System Agent Voltage – 0.925

An Overclock of this kind requires proper cooling , tapping the need for an investment of around 35-40usd.

AMD:


After a few minutes of analysis, it comes to mind that we are in the presence of a more hardcore platform, the settings are not as easy neither the results, although everything works quite well.

The FX are all unlocked, however, for OC, it’s not just change the multi, "et voila".

You need to find the balance between CPU multi and Bus Frequency, by just changing the multi, it may be required higher voltage for the desired speed than combining multi + Bus, reminds me of the 1366 platform.

Therefore, it is necessary to change:
  • Cpu Multi;
  • Cpu Bus Speed (200-230);
  • Cpu Vid (até 1.55);
  • Cpu NB Vid (até 1.35);
  • Cpu Pll + ;
  • DDR Vtt + ;
  • Amd cool and quiet; Amd APM; AMD C6/C1E – disable .

Settings used OC 4500mhz:

Cpu Multi 21x
Cpu Bus Speed 215
Cpu Vid 1.5
Cpu NB Vid 1.3
Cpu Pll + 0.10
DDR Vtt + 0.05

4500mhz seems to me the best compromise and what can be expected with a medium range cooler.

Summarizing the steps to OC:

1) increase the multi to realize the maximum stable mhz with stock voltage;
2) finding the maximum point, increasing the bus speed to understand the effect beyond MHZ achieved only by growing multi;
3) Balance found , increase various voltages and repeat the process (multi + + Bus)

Take into account that, from a certain point, it will be beneficial to maintain the lowest multi, increasing only the CPU Bus

The temperatures should not pass the 72 at core.

One of the most criticized aspects on AMD platform is the RAID 0 performance.

Part 1 regarding general information and synthetic tests completed.

The objective of this analysis is not to influence someone, so every party should analyze the data provided and realize for yourself the differences between the two platforms and especially if the differences outweigh the investment.

In analyzing more attention was given to comparing 4.5 vs 4.5 in order to avoid biased accusations, however, there is a need to warn that especially in the new Haswell Cpus Overlock the 4500mhz one is tougher to achieve than on the platform 1155.

Very well done. Really shows how overkill most CPUs really are right now.
post #4 of 78
only bad part about the 8320 is the power consumption otherwise it's a very good chip especially for the price

The only thing I noticed, and excuse my ignorance if it isn't always the case, is that the Graphics scores using 3DMark should be the same right, thru all the tests. The CPU scores should be different, usually in favor of Intel. But seems if the GPUs are equally clocked the scores should be the same or relatively close. I just noticed on a random part here and there they differ and in 3DMark13 Firestrike, the first test has a huge difference in scores for the GPU.

I found that to be strange as well.

But even if i run again with a diferent graphics card, despite i get the same Firestrike score, it will show much lower Icestorm with AMD platform.

Nice info. Haven't realized that asseto corsa is so well threaded that FX would lead there. Also what happened with mafia 2?

Merely the test result, i don´t know if anyone is getting the same kind of results at Mafia, but i would like to know thumb.gif

Good work here chap.

Some useful indicators for people who are trying to weigh up the options of a gaming build!

Great work, helped me decide my next build!
