There really isn't a difference. AMD is about to get rid of a few on the instruction designed for Bulldozer/piledriver.

You are Developing for X86, it doesn't matter if you are on AMD or Intel.

Even AMD's Console chips don't use the ignored instruction sets made by AMD for Bulldozer. And Honestly would be pointless to learn such things when Zen wont even use them ether.


Honestly you are going to buy a 180$ motherboard for a $160 AMD CPU....

Granted you need AMD board that can supply a lot of power to feed those chips with a overclock. But you honestly are wasting money.


You can get a faster locked i5 that will out gun the FX 8 core in most games even oced to 5ghz, for the same cost. Plus you don't need a beefy motherboard, as they don't use that much power.

That AMD FX chip is nearly 3 years old already.


Though if you want to pay more money for a platform that will be slower, go ahead. Not my money. wink.gif

The AMD FX8350 looses out to the i3 more than it beats it. Don't even think it would beat out a i5. At best it will match it.


A Decent chip if you do a lot of Media encoding, or anything that scales will with cores. Even though a Intel 6 core still does better at those tasks, even the first gen i7 6 cores from the 1366 days.

Ah, the trolls are out in force today.


You are posting benchmarks that are not real world.

Most games looks like this, If not worse of the AMD side. As they score even worse when it comes to 1080p.


A FX-9590 at best matches a stock 2500k in gaming. tongue.gif

Maybe you can hold out for now and spend some money on stuff you'll use later like an AIO So you can clock that Q, or a PSU, or new case

Comparing CPU's at different clocks with different GPU's

Wow, what a great comparison.

No fanboism here, just facts. If AMD had the lead in IPC I would be all over AMD.

Actually , It's meant to be a stock vs stock comparison of the cpu's , without the variablity that the turbo function introduces into the mix. I compared the 4790k with all of it's cores locked at it's highest turbo clocking ( 4.4ghz) against Vishera , also locked at the Various turbo clock speeds of the 8 core SKU's.

Where there is information posted for different resolutions, it's simply meant to add to the thread, not to be used as direct comparisons and those are noted in the posts.

If you want to make your own thread using your own method , please do so, always interested in seeing the comparison.

The 780 ti bench marks for the 4790k are still to come, but as for the 290X being in either machine , the numbers are what they are.

The 6300 is a great balance of cores and a little less heat output.


Simply because the mobo cost is so high, that it pretty much nulls the cost savings factor when dealing with a AMD 8 Core.

That i5 I posted will out gun this AMD chip in most games, even if the AMD was overclocked to 5ghz.


You can back that up with some links?

The AMD cpu's are awesomely fun to tinker with and their performance is underrated.

Nearly all of the game comparisions he gives the 83xx chip higher clocks and a better GPU. 780 Ti is faster than a 290X. Also was comparing 1080p results to 1200p results. What a complete waste.


How can you call the months of work he put into that thread "a waste"? Did you even bother to read through it?

I have never purchased anything new, paying full price when you can have the same functionality for a lesser price is something I cant overlook.

Especially on a lease return system.

Just wait for Skylake FX 8000's CPU's are power hungry- heat generating-low single threaded performance CPU's for 100 or so more $ I could have gotten a 4670k, and I definately regret not having done so, trust me, my main drawback was that the good mobo's for intel seemed to average 200's, altought the Asus z97-A looked decent for 150..

In some games you will be really disapointed, arma 3 for exemple and I have drops to 20's fps in GTA V aswell.. some other games like BF4 runs perfectly as they are optimized for 8 threads..

Skylake mate.

Look how pitiful the FX 8350@4.7 looks : http://pclab.pl/art57777-24.html even paired with a r9 290x, that's my build right there.. down at the bottom.
