Hi All

This thread has been created by myself and Powermonkey500 as we have very similar hardware except processor and motherboard.

My initial idea was to show the performance of the FX 8350 with single gpu and crossfire. Powermonkey500 offered his services as a comparison so A BIG THANK YOU TO HIM FOR HIS TIME AND EFFORT.

Both rigs are running corsair vengeance ram 16 GB at 1600mhz , crossfire HD 7970 GHZ editions at stock (1050 / 1500) please see my sig rig for further details. The differences mainly are:

AMD fx 8350 @ 4.8GHZ with ASUS Crosshair V formula Z

Intel i5 3570K @ 4.8GHZ with ASROCK Extreme 4

The Games so far used are Dirt Showdown, Sleeping Dogs and Battlefield 3, we hope at some point soon to add Hitman Absolution and Farcry 3.

I will start by adding the AMD Benchies followed by Intel. All games are preset to Ultra settings at 1080P Highest possible settings except in Showdown where the option on the intel rig was not available to turn on Global illumination, so we left that off.

Battlefield 3 is a difficult benchmark so we chose Toms Hardware's preferred balanced benchmark using Fraps on the following part of the game: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=wAA-NJj0Z0k

Before anyone asks, yes on both rigs f1 2012 ran slower with crossfire enabled than in Single GPU mode hence I did not do a usage graph...



My conclusion is that they are very similar in performance at these speeds, i5 wins Some, FX8350 wins some, out of 6 game benchmarks 3 single GPU benches and 3 crossfire benches , the fx8350 won 3 and the i5 won 3, the I5 wins at 3d mark 11 but the 8350 was even at Heaven.

The intention of this thread is to show honest performance differences, I would again like to thank Powermonkey500 for his input and I hope this is useful information to everyone.

Rep. So you have 99% utilization in bf3?Interesting. A bit difficult to do the same bench in multiplayer bf3:/

Ryzen is a joke to the vast majority of the market who would consider buying their product.

Exactly I tried but I averaged i50 FPS by looking up at the sky slightly, 130 in normal gameplay ad then 110 if I snipered and saw a lot of ground, we could never be equal, Thanks for the rep, please rep powermonkey aswell it would not have been possible without his input! thumb.gif

Nice work. You should put the results back to back so one doesn't have to scroll far down to compare the results. As it is now, it's a pain to navigate.

Is there any way to hand control to me?

Nice job. Looking forward to more results. My only concern is that the benchmarks were done @ 1080p. A pair of HD 7970s would seem more practical in high-resolution gaming, not @ 1080p where a single high-end GPU is enough. It would be nice to see how the results compare beyond 1080p. +Rep nonetheless.
