I would say neither. From my testing the i5-2500k is better now, and will remain slightly better than the x6 Phenom II in the future. Any time you can get the same, or slightly higher performance out of less cores its going to be a better deal when it comes to legacy software that isn't optimized for the higher core count.

My reason for switching over was solely based on the fact that I play games often. And I wanted to future proof myself a bit more via the ability to get more from my graphics cards in older games that only used 2-4 cores anyways. I found even on a single card I'd often be bottlenecked by my cpu.

My goal is to run two gtx 470's in SLI and push them to 99% usage in legacy titles and future ones as well. But I'm only trying to get two to three years out of this set up. I'm hoping to catch the back end of the "next gen" products in late 2013 early 2014.

Probably Cinebench, that would be my guess.


I think I have some newer scores like Heaven on a single card, I'll update the OP.

@ op - found some news that amd is going to stop phenom series ...I don't have more idea about llano /BD ..and I dont want a gfx integrated cpu ...multi threaded apps will increase in future ...I know that i5 2500k is faster than your 6 core phenom..but in future multi threaded apps will run better in P II x6 series right? I am really confused ..wish to get one cpu soon...& I don't want to upgrade for 5 -6 years after the same..

It depends on the overclock.

My 1090T was slower than my i5-2500k at their peak overclocks, even in multi-threaded apps, the i5-2500k is faster than the 1090T. That carries over pretty hardcore when you start limiting each to 2 cores, or 4 cores... The difference is in future apps the i5-2500k is still going to be faster than the 1090T, and in older apps with less core optimization the gap is much wider.

Well to be fair by the time Intels Sandy Bridge chips are available again bulldozer should be nearing release.

Right now is a bad time to upgrade, wait for Sandy Bridge and Bulldozer to come out, then start using the stock reviews to compare against what people are getting with overclocks.

Give it a bit of time, there will be several debates going on around this forum with a lot of proof either way. It will probably be a performance vs price style debate, but you should get a good perspective on whats happening before you buy anything.

Don't forget the unlocked series have the better on die graphics.

For non-OC'ers the K series still might be the better way to go with the H67 motherboards (for an HTPC).

But than I'm waiting for the next real benchmarks on Bulldozer vs Sandy.
