Opteron 3350 HE or FX-8320 for video editing/game design

For my new system I've selected AMD FX-8320, but I've just find some offers for this Opteron CPU with AM3+ socket, anyone does know if can be a good option?

    The opteron is a server CPU and is only a quad-core CPU with a low frequenzy, it's not meant for the work you want to do with it.

    Video editing utilize all the cores of your CPU so an octa-core CPU would in my perspective be better for the purpose.
    About the game designing then it's more likely a GPU you should be looking at.

    CUDA provided by Nvidia is excellent at designing 3D models and such, which I would prefer if I was going to do 3D modelling.
  3. From the pure core count obviously 8 core are better than 4.

    But since 8 Piledriver core are not "full" cores due to Bulldozer design, I was wondering if Operon 4 cores can be better for some improvements, or they share the same design goods and bad.

    I can't find any test of a system based on 33xx Opteron, or any architecture analysis vs FX Vishera CPU.
  4. Can't really find so much informations about this chip, but appear it's made for low end servers such as web servers.
    The closest real world benchmark I can find AMD Opteron 3380 Review level his performance to the 4-years old Xeon X3460.
    So appear it's really not suited for CPU intensive applications.
    So the choice it's FX-8320 for sure.

    It's true that it's not true cores, the L2 cache is shared between 2 cores. A true core would have it's own. :)
