RX570 & FX8350

Hi,

From what others here have mentioned the FX8350 & RX570 will bottleneck and the FPS will be lower due to the FX8350.

There are some users who seem to be happy though.

I've found an RX570 cheaper than some RX560's so I've gone with it to have an RX570 for use although I do have better cards and processors where this could be used so it wouldn't be just for the FX8350.

If FX8350 was OC'd to 4.4 GHZ how would it really do? - I wouldn't want temps to get too high!

I've already OC'd 3770K & 3930K - 4.4 GHZ & 4.2 GHZ respectively - and done the dreaded P95 tests but they went well overall....so at some point I'd be doing the FX8350 -and seeing just how useful/useless it is and make up my own mind!!!

Some folks have mentioned not to go above GTX 1050 Ti - Is this really true?

Useful tips please - thanks.

Depends entirely on the games and settings/resolution you play at.

Intel i9 9900K Coffee Lake @ X8 5309mhz (+47.5%)
AMD FX-8320 Vishera @ X4 5022mhz (+43.5%)
Intel i5 4690K Haswell @ X4 5013mhz (+43.2%)
AMD X4 960T Zosma @ X6 4870mhz (+62.3%)
Intel i7 6700 Skylake @ X4 4709mhz (+38.5%)
Intel i5 6400 Skylake @ X4 4588mhz (+69.9%)

OK sure it'd be 1080 - on a 2560 x 1080 screen although 1920 x 1080 could be used. I've seen clips online of people playing and doing OK within reason.

How many more FPS would 400 Mhz OC get? - Yes you'll say it depends on the game but for general games.

Some games like Ghost Recon may just be too much for FX8350 as the higher GPU's/CPU's work hard to get good FPS!

You're most likely better off using 2560 x 1080, since the CPU does not really care about resolution.

Overclocking will definitely make quite a difference. Just make sure not to fry your motherboard in the process.

For what it's worth I spent a surprising amount of time running low to medium settings on my FX/Fury rig @ 1080p to take some pressure off the GPU. My Fury gives about 20% better firestrike scores than my RX 570 does as a matter of comparison. I certainly wouldn't go with any less powerful card .

OK seeme though there is conflicting advice from a variety of enthusiasts!.

Some say don't go above a GTX 1050 Ti -

I did find good advice on Gamers Nexus that tested an Intel Pentium G4560 (Kaby Lake)_and the GTX 1060 did quite well and the test conducted was seeing just where the GPU bottle necks the CPU as it can't provide enough processing which is quite similar to this discussion.

How does your R9 Fury do compared to the RX570 on a variety of games -?-thanks

I also ran an FX/Fury combo and it did ok at both 1080p and 1440p, but it ran at 5ghz. At 4.4 ghz the 8350 would be working pretty hard.

This is too hypothetical for me. Determining what is the "bottleneck" is not rocket science. A 8350 and 570 at stock will play *most* games just fine at 1080p 60 hz. How about some details on your set up and some real measurements on where it is being held back and what are you trying to accomplish?

The RX570 is a fantastic price/performance card right now.

Buy the best card that's viable to your budget right now, there's no point purchasing a lesser card for not overly dissimilar pricing, only to have that be your limiting factor later on when you upgrade your CPU.

It's not like your system is going to run worse with a better card in it.

Buy the RX570 (if you already haven't), push the CPU OC as far as you comfortably can to limit any bottleneck that may be present (which is entirely game and resolution dependant), enjoy better gaming. Upgrade CPU without having the GPU holding you back more and regretting not spending extra X on the 570 at that time 'cos it was a great deal. Win.

The FX been around for quite awhile. Plenty of reviews but I like watching actual game plays that look legit. Here is one with the 8350 at stock and a comparable GTX 1060.
