It's simple really: In most gaming scenarios current Intel setups will offer better gaming value once a certain minimum level of acceptable performance is met.

You can certainly build an AMD setup that can game competently. This is neither difficult nor expensive to do, but you may well achieve the same or better gaming performance with Intel for the same amount of money, or have other worthwhile advantages in other areas.

The niches that most of OCN focuses on are generally just done better by Intel at this time.

No one is talking about flagship CPUs.

AMD CPUs aren't bad... intel are just a lot better.

At some price points AMD processors have a little better multithreaded performance in some applications - that's the only thing they can claim tho, everything else goes to intel.
post #14 of 362
AMD is behind in terms of raw horespower but if all you're doing is gaming then AMD is still your budget cpu. the simple fact is in most scenarios for gaming the 8350 8 core is barely keeping up with intels main stream i5 processors. but that makes sense considering the 8350 is still cheaper than the i5 cpus.

The FX 6300 can be had for so cheap and can overclock extremely well. It can close the gap in IPC to sandy and ivy i5's, and many users on here understand and respect that. But the fact of the matter is, this site is inhabited by enthusiasts and naturally they talk about Intel more than AMD. Doesn't mean AMD sucks!

AMD CPU is still very good value if you do a lot of multi-threaded work (rendering, transcoding, etc). It is also acceptable for gaming depending on what games you play. It is sort of a niche CPU to buy right now. If you want to play RTS type games, you're going to have a really bad time with AMD. But a lot of AAA games that scale well to many cores do well.

I usually just say save money on CPU and bump up monitor resolution or display frequency and not worry about CPU too much. Obviously you don't wanna do something like run Pentium G with quad Crossfire or SLI. But 4m/8c AMD CPU is not a painful bottleneck in a lot of games, and if you raise settings and resolution high enough, the problem is not so bad.

Because in games where you need higher performance per core amd has really low performance on each core.and some games cant use the extra threads is up to the programmers/devs that the game supports many threads like crysis3 or battlefield 4.it depends o. What you play,now to do some work of video editing/encoding/ripping arent a bad choice compared to an i5 but multiples gpus would make a bottleneck in games because simply the mainstream resolution put more strain on.the cpu due tot he fact that the gpu arent fully used plus the poor multithreading that directx11 has when it comes to moves the calls easily

One thing to note is that the current FX processor line is 2 years old. When compared to intel processors of the same age they do pretty well at a lower price range. Unfortunatly, a lot of comparisons and recommendations are going towards haswell which is a far newer chip. I consider it an unfair comparison, yet many still do because its the newest chip out for both sides in the performance lines.

I only buy AMD out of preference, but even I can't recommend the FX lineup. Its out dated. But that said, its made a strong run in longevity.

I would have to agree here. it is unfair because of the age difference but yet there is a sensce of being fair because as you said, both chips are the latest out. The 8350 trades blows with an i5 2500k easily but the i7 even for a sandy bridge they come out ahead of amd by a good margin.

I still love amd for budget but for my personal rigs i go with intel. you would be hard pressed to find an intel quad core build for even close to the price you can put together say a 4130 quad core build.

I certainly realize that this is a dead horse.. But as others have stated. Why come to an amd forum and suggest Intel that I guess was the issue I had. It certainly feels like adding insult to injury. Just for clarificstion I am using my current machine because my i7- 2500 I had in my asus rog g73 never stood out. I always felt like I was wasting cpu power. So at this point I'm opting to put more money into my video card. Than my cpu. Thank you for all who applied it just kinda bugged me that people who bought these parts where being told in an amd forum to buy Intel.
