I bought an FX-6300 from newegg in 2013 and it was a 'customer choice award winner' then

Because Newegg doesn't stock them anymore. They are outdated technically.

That list only shows what is in stock.

The customer choice is chosen by newegg and they email you to vote on them. Aka most profitable.

AMD won't be around if they can't reverse this trend they are in a very tough position. Maybe they will be bought out and renewed hopefully but who knows...

Keep in mind that I did switch from AMD to Intel a bit after I got fond of benchmarking and improving on those minimum FPS. Not sure how the average passmark user opperates, but I'd imagine a lot of em are looking for maximum performance. So PassMark might over represent people who are looking for an upgrade.

Still a worrying trend, but not unexpected. There's nothing to upgrade to, aside from Intel. Getting a reversal in this segment would require Zen to be interesting enough to get some sandy bridge and prior users to upgrade. (and the keep the FX/APU users on the AMD side, with an upgrade option)

You mentioned Passmark, so here is my 2 cents. My OCed 8370 ranks slightly better than the 4790K overall, but the 4790K has way better single thread performance. In fact it has the best single thread performance of any CPU. Passmark has a section on just that subject. But if my FX is at least as good overall, then it must be much better in other areas to balance it all out.

So when choosing a CPU one must decide what one will be doing with it. If all you do is single thread stuff then the 4790K is the way to go. If you don't do single thread stuff, like me, then FX is the way to go. Especially when one notices the huge price difference.

You can buy an FX plus a good motherboard for the price of just the 4790K.

I run AMD CPU's for the system responsiveness in both everyday tasks and gaming.

I have two systems, i5 4670k OC'd to 4.5Ghz paired with a R9 290

Phenom II X6 OC'd to 4Ghz paired with a GTX 760 MARS. (1440p resolution)

Personally I find nothing games like an AMD CPU paired with NVidia Graphics.

I am just curious to know what are you folks sticking to AMD CPU (or GPU)?

I am currently using FX9590 (also got a spare 8370E lying around). For me, I am a diehard AMD fan, I only use AMD GPUs. Although I change over to Intel for CPU, I felt guilty and change back to AMD recently. No doubt its slower and hotter. But then its not really a problem for me. I don't need the fastest CPU around. My games don't require it. i only use my comp to play games like WOW, STO, WOT, none are really intensive games and AMD is still producing playable frame rates. Its not as if AMD CPU cannot use and cannot play games, so i don't care. Heat wise, I am using a customer loop WC so no issues with heat.

Right now, I am just waiting for Zen to be released then I will make sure I am one of the first few to buy it (regardless of the performance).

Btw, for GPU, I don't use Nvidia, only AMD (using Fury X now). Again don't care if its slower than Nvidia or cost more. It still runs all my games very well.

Reason why I'm coming back to AMD: Anyone can go by power these days and OC with little to no trouble. I want a challenge, I want to take a lower cost chip and squeeze out as much performance as I possibly can. I'm not saying I want to challenge a high end intel chip tic for tat, but I would like to have the same experience in applications and games that they would at a fraction of the cost biggrin.gif. Plus I like rooting for the underdog.... Oh and AMD's APUs are awesome! thumb.gif

Looks like the underdog spirit is strong in you! I can appreciate that wink.gif

I left AMD late last year to give Intel a try and I'm really enjoying my current setup, but have been wanting to come back to AMD with an APU setup using either the 7870k or 860k processor and the Asus Crossblade Ranger MB.

At the moment I'm looking at just pulling the MB and CPU in my sig rig and dropping the AMD MB and CPU in.

which would be the better choice for CPU's 7870k or 860k?
