Intel pentium or amd a6 3650

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I have these two current cpu's at my disposal for a secondary gaming PC. This computer will be used for when friends come over so they can game with me. The A6 has been overclocked to 4ghz already and is what is inside the pc atm along with a gtx 560ti. But i noticed i also had another mobo with a intel pentium that has hyperthreading and is stock clocked at 3.06ghz. so i was just wondering whihc would be better for gaming and would cause less of a "bottleneck" to the 560 ti. biggrin.gif Thanks In advance

Passmark Scores

Pentium D 3.0ghz 647

A6-3650 2.6ghz 3225

So I would definitely stick with the A6-3650.

damn, im being heavily bottlenecked by the 3650 @ 4ghz, in dota the 560 ti is only at 40% at max sometimes it'll jump to 50% at most.

The a6-3650 overclocked is much better than a Pentium D.

BTW- I've never heard of a Pentium D with hyperthreading, so I'd guess it's a Pentium 4 with hyperthreading or a dual core Pentium D without hyperthreading.

yes my bad it is the pentium 4 with hyperthreading @ 3.06, dont know if that changes things. And the Amd A6-3650 has 4 cores @ 2.66ghz. But i oc'ed to 4ghz
