Thing is Games don't use 8 cores, you will rarely see a game actually utilizing the FX 8 core chips correctly. Which is why high IPC tends to work out better for games. As 90% of games out right now only use between 2-4 cores. Which is why even Intel's 6 cores and HT hardly make a difference on most of those games.

I... may have been shooting for an OC of that nature... which is why the Chip is now in the great die wafer in the sky now.

Sometimes I think I just kill my older chips to have an excuse to build something newer.

Ahem..ok I just looked it up and you know a 4690k in NCIX.com costs 285 CAN $ which converted in swiss franks my country currency makes it 217CHF on my local store it is worth 240CHF so to me those prices look quite good.. in a france online store it is 265CHF which is (slightly) overpriced though.

In the first post he said he wasn't on a budget.. I just speak from my own experience so please..

They would be a better fit for your Hyper 212 EVO. Plus they are cheaper than an 8350. At least in the USA.

In my opinion, all things being equal, you can't beat the all around experience a combo like this will provide for the money spent (usa prices being my point of reference ).
The best I've been able to do is put together a 990FXA GD-65/FX-8320 combo for $180 after rebates, new prices, newegg/amazon. The chip was 4.8 ghz prime capable in the CHV-Z with excellent cooling,4.7ghz on the GD-65 and I believe I hit 4.3 on the stock cooler without breaking 60C priming on the MSI board.

If I knew what games/resolutions/level of detail the OP likes to use, maybe I could be more helpful.

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.

If you're going to compare them, you need to have them at the same clock. Ignore the stupid turbo crap and clock them at both 4.5GHz or something reasonable. No one with any sense actually buys a 9590, but if you're going to use a 4.7GHz bench then do the same for the 4790K, because the majority of them will easily hit 4.7GHz.

Again, you need to use the same GPU's at the same clocks. RAM is also a factor, I didn't look to see if you were using the same, or similarly clocked RAM, but you want to make sure that is the same as well.

Also, if you're going to be throwing out different resolutions you need to be doing that for both systems.. not just one of them with a different GPU.

I'm sorry to say but as it stands now, your results are extremely skewed. If you can do those things I will have no qualms with your results, and neither should anyone else.

You can back that up with some links?
The AMD cpu's are awesomely fun to tinker with and their performance is underrated.

That certainly is not true.
How can you call the months of work he put into that thread "a waste"? Did you even bother to read through it?

it certainly is true. At any budget the Intel system will perform better for the mass majority of games. There IS a reason to buy AMD at a certain budget today, however. The only reason being you would be running certain multi-threaded workloads that the FX series would be better suited for, and that's only up to a certain price point before Intel becomes better again.

Also stop trying to make it seem like the FX 8 cores are better than they truly are. While they are not totally bad chips, piledriver is around 3 years old now. The Platform is dead, and it is a waste of money to invest in that platform.

At best they compete against a i5 2500k, at stock or with a mild OC. A 2500k will walk all over the AMD when overclocked to 4.8ghz.


Honestly some of us a big AMD fans. And even we won't touch AMD's FX chips. Phenom II was the last good CPU series from AMD. RIP Phenom tongue.gif
In single-threaded tasks, yes. OP did mention 3D modelling and software development which none of you apparently noticed in which Vishera at 4GHz can hold it's own against stock 3770k, so I'd imagine them being at the very least competitive with the locked Haswell i5s.

He was about to spend 180 bucks on a mobo for the AMD system. When now he can get one under $100 to use with a locked i5.

Not only would he save money getting the i5, but he would get better game performance. This is fact, pure fact. thumb.gif
Nor do you need one for the FX. The UD3P for <$100 is already more than enough if you don't want to really push the chip to it's limits.

How about no? That's as dumb as comparing a 1200MHz 290X to a 1200MHz 970, it makes no damn sense. If you bothered to actually read some of the results they are very much ran with similar settings, and also, he quite clearly mentioned that the RAM is ran at the same frequency.

I still have my Q9550 and my ud3p, in my HTPC sig. thumb.gif

Used to do 4.25ghz myself (500fsb). But after time that degraded. Still does 4ghz like a champ though.

Still that FX 4350 does 4.2ghz at stock, which makes it pretty decent IMO. Along with NB/BUS improvements. As well as much lower cost to add in 8gb+ of RAM.

So I'm not surprised that the FX chip is faster. Though a Q9550 can still hold its own with a 4ghz OC and 8gb of RAM. biggrin.gif

So instead it is more accurate to compare CPU's that can OC to the same levels at different clocks. It's also good to compare them with differently performing GPU's and drivers.
