My i5-2500k ($225) vs my 1090T ($230) - Page 5

Brand new architecture barely beats 3+ year old architecture... I consider this a win for the Phenoms.

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.
yea ..I will wait for more reviews of BD..,,hey what happened to your cpu ..rma'd ?

Yes I suppose you could consider it a win that 6 cores loses to 4 only slightly.

For the rest of us that understand that in most cases the x6 will be running at 33 to 66% usage max it's actually pretty bad.

I think the biggest difference is when you consider how poorly video cards really perform on Phenom II chips, and this issue is only compounded by additional video cards.

If you are a gamer, the i5-2500k is by far a much better buy. And even if you do core intensive tasks often, the i5-2500k still is faster.

It's AMD's best offering vs Intels newest mainstream... it's not impressive at all for AMD who released the x6 about a year ago.

The X6 wasn't designed as a "gaming" increase, but as a workstation one.

True gaming series from AMD always were the Dragon platform, the Leo platform is targeted more towards (again) workstations.


Even though, it's interesting to see how efficient is Intel's new architecture, showing that 4 cores beat 6 cores in non CPU massive applications.


Since my CPU only uses its full horsepower when rendering/encoding, which I do pretty often, I'm pretty okay with it.


And as someone said, upgrading to a Sandy coming from an LGA1366/Phenom II X6 CPU is pretty worthless, since the performance gain isn't noticeable unless you play 3DMark and Heaven all the day

x6 was never added to that.

And the topic was towards gaming, even the first gen core i series beats them x6 in that area. The only thing the Phenom II x6 had over first gen core i series chips was its multi-threaded app speeds.

Cinebench is cpu intensive, and one of the few areas the x6 had anything over previous generations core i series chips. I'm also pretty sure the sandy bridge core i5 will beat your Phenom II x6 in encoding and rendering.

I'm also pretty sure your chip isn't doing 4.5GHz, bro.

Anyone making money off rendering and encoding would have gotten a Intel x6, despite it's initial cost it is and will remain far ahead of AMD's x6.

Same can be said of gaming, anyone spending $300 to $1500 on gpus shouldn't be ok with a cpu bottleneck that is larger than it needs to be.

I really like how the 2500k in vantage doesn't drop down to 3 fps.
It's TURBO TIME!

I think the simple fact that in every game benchmark I've done the 1090T has been a bottleneck, on a single mid range card.

Whatever anyone else gets from it is opinion based, but I myself wanted to get more gpu power and I couldn't bring myself to spend another $200-$300 on a gpu to see fps slightly higher than what I get now on a single card.

You couldn't run the game benchmarks clock for clock? Would be more interesting, especially since barely anyone playing games is going to get 5Ghz or even care about it.

Impressive, but I'm perfectly okay with my AMD.

Intels are good if you have the money for them, which I don't. :'( (Take it, however, in this case it seems that the Intel is cheaper, but still.)

I'll eventually pick one up when I've saved enough, but I could care less about benchmark results.

AMD is my personal preference, and I don't think any test will ever change that.

1366 people said the same thing - and I'll say the same thing I said to them.


I benched my 1090T at 4.4 to 4.5GHz thats the highest I could go. I benched i5-2500k at 5GHz because after I had it for a few hours I was already there.
