AMD FX Series Or AMD A series

which should be good with overall performance Games as well as application and programing purpose with heavy software's like AUTO CAD 2012 and nero 13

I don't need the extra Graphics card

  1. Doesn't Auto Cad take advantage of Cuda Cores? If that's true, wouldn't it make sense to get an FX and get a lower end Geforce card for the Cuda cores?
  2. I would Go with the FX so Much better and Faster especially if u wanna go for gaming frab the FX 8350 Black Edition cheaper even than an I5 the FX 8350 has 8-Core CpU plus 4.0 ghz while I5 has an quad core and 3.5 Ghz , For the A10 it performs much lesser than the FX 8350 . Hope I helped :) .

    Then what about a6 5400k although it is dual core with 3.6 GHz speed and AMD Radeon HD 7540D integrated graphics
  4. the A10 is basically a 4300 with included gpu. for CAD work you want the FX 8320 or 8350

    bro that means you need to be L3 cache more memory
  6. I'd go with either the 8320 or preferably 8350 for the 8 cores, and ideally a Geforce 650, but barring that a Geforce 630 for about 70 dollars. The 650 has a higher compute as far as the Cuda cores are concerned, but the 630 is cheaper and still possesses the Cuda cores. I know you don't need an add-in video card, but if it will help in your work...I'd recommend it.

    Then what is about FX 4100 Since its alos quad core and having good speed alson any g force card along with it since i have tight budget
  8. Tight budget. with a low power consumption. low heat . But a better performance. Just choose i3.

    Too busy on selecting CPU's huh !! haha

    :lol:

    Just buy a SSD for the fast response of the software's and fast start up of your system.

    The A10- 6800K is due to release in June. May be your best bet on a tight budget.

    I3 is little bit costly dude in this range i can afford quad core or six core processor and now 65w processors are normal to us i3 is also 65w nearly and GPU is good in AMD A series processors and if you want good GPU little bit power is allowed to expense

    The i3 takes like 23w for the cpu, I think it will take amd till 2017 till they get to ivy bridge levels. At the moment they are renown for being power hungry on load bit like when intel were releasing p4 power hungry chips in desktops with high clock speed, amd have gone the same route milking out one of the least efficient cpu architectures in bulldozer and then piledriver. The i3 destroys the fx4000 series on gaming. Its widely reknown for desktop market anyway if you want a power efficient chip amd is not even an option.

    Intel are 2x better performance per watt then amd at the moment. i3 competes well with the fx6300 as you can see it is about similar performance overall to it i.e. wins and loses similar amount. I guess its upto you what you choose. One thing ivy bridge cpus are is very power efficient, I find it amazing how little the cpus take.

    bro thanks but you made me in confusion that either choose amd or choose Intel again

    But what about graphics ?Intel is good or amd ? its amd then and comparatively prices are high of i3 3220

    Then tell me AMD a6 5400k Or Intel i3 3220
  12. wait. Haswell and Richland cpus are due in June
