Intel Core i7-4770K Vs Amd 8 Core 9590

I have the option to get the i7 4770k or the 9590.
I am selling my 8350 to my brother who is buelding a pc. So if i want i can get the 9590 for the same price as it would be for me to get the i7 4470k. They have a combo deal on the 9590 on newegg and i would take the cpu and my brother would take the rest of the parts. So its a good deal.

Or i can sell him my motherboard and the cpu and go the intel route.


Both would cost me the same amount of money.

So it is intel i7 s 9590 at the same price. What should i get?

  1. Best answer
    Well, all things being equal, I'd get the I7. Better performance, and overclocking headroom with the right cooling.
  2. I have the h100 cooler. I need to find a motherboard that does duel x16 for sli and will be good for overclocking the cpu
  3. I have the asus amd v formula i really like that. But ill be selling that to my brother
  4. Plenty of motherboards will meet your needs, you won't be disappointed with the I7.
  5. lord 4670k is about the same or go off and give a extra 100$ for hyperthreading
  6. Actualy i was a little bit off.
    It will cost me. 350 dollars to upgrade to i7 from my 8350 and it would cost me
    250 dollars to upgrade from my 8350 to the 9590. Maybe even 200 dollars for the 9590 option. I really do want good performence tho. I like i said i will be doing sli and playing on 2560x1440p Monitor. I will be playing arma 3 Battlefield 4.

  8. So is it worth the price difrence of 150 dollars. The 4770k vs the 9590?
  9. Do not buy the 9590, period. If they are essentially the same price, buy the 4770k. Remember, you can always overclock the 4770k too, whereas I don't think the 9590 has much headroom left on it.

    For ARMA 3 and BF4 yes. For any other game NO.
  11. So 150 dollars extra for the 4770k is worth it? i just want to make sure. I am going to order it to night

    Is that a good motherboard. I have the logitech 2.1 thx speakers so i want the best sound possible. I am selling the asus v formula to my brother. How does this mother board compare to it?
  13. Crysis 3 also runs better on the I7 compared to the I5. And I'd get a:

  14. that motherboard dont have duel 16x
  15. Right. You aren't going to find dual 16x lanes unless you use the x79 chipset. Dual x8 is just fine. x79 is for the socket 2011, while z87 is for socket 1150. Completely different Cpu's.
  16. Oh that would have been bad. So is out worth it for me to upgrade from the 8350 to the Intel you think? With me planning on going sli and I do play a good amount.
  17. Okay. Other thing i have the old H100 cooler so what do i do for that? do i need a new intel socket for it or something?

  18. Shouldn't. I don't think they've changed the actual cooler interface since socket 1156. So, 1156, 1155, and 1150 all use the same drilled motherboard holes for adding the cooler. And yes, it will fit, I just checked it out.
  19. Cool thanks!
  20. The 9590 is basically an overclocked 8150 that comes with a better heatsink.

    The 8370 is basically an overclocked 8100 that comes with a better heatsink.

    If you do the benchmark math, the 8350 will give you better performance clocked @ 4.7 than the 9590, or the 8370 @ 4.3. Right now the fastest processor that AMD makes is the 8350.

    They use similar marketing strategies with their other CPUs. Lookup the "CPU Model Family" of any AMD processor before you buy it. If you have an 8350, keep it and buy a water cooler and a mother board that supports overclocking.
  21. As an owner of a 9590, I would steer clear. Even out of the box they can be unstable and temperamental. The also require huge amounts of power and cooling. I spent the first week with my 9590 trying to make it stable with default settings. If you google 9590 freezing you will see this is a widespread problem.
