AMD 8350 or intel i5 4670k for next gen gaming

which cpu would be better? i know that intel is usually the better cpu and that the new chip is really good, but i also know that the 8350 is an 8 core cpu that comes stock at 4 ghz. and isn't next gen gaming going to take advantage of multi cores?

  1. Yes newer games are going to start threading more, and the 8350 will be able to take advantage more so than the i5. An i7 though has such good per core performance it will still out perform the 8350.
  2. ya lol i have no doubt at all that an i7 would outperform, but the i7's are like literally twice the amount of the 8350 and also in my situation i have an amd only mb, so if i were to switch over to intel i would also have to buy a new mb
  3. so im looking at either 200$ for the 8350, or about 375$ for intel i5 cpu and mb
  4. The 15 is better in every way.......therefore buy it :P
  5. but will the quad core hold up for future gaming like the 8 core would?
  6. If you're not so willing to throw too much money into it, go with the 8350, the difference in games won't be so noticeable. You can buy a 30$ aftermarket cooler (coolermaster EVO) to easily overclock your cpu to like 4.5-4.8.
  7. money isn't a huge issue, just the more it costs, the longer ill have to wait to save up. and if i switch to intel ill have more setup to do lol

    Actaully at microcenter i7 4770k went on sale for $270 which is only $70 more. You have to go in store for the dealas

    Go with the 8350. The GPU is going to be doing most of the work and the 8350 can overclock much higher than the i5 and has much better threaded performance.
  10. alright well my gpu is a gigabyte gtx 770 so im perfectly good in that department lol you think that would work well with the 8350?
  11. yes it will work like a charm. it will be deadly future proof combo :)

    You already answered your own question. You already have an AMD motherboard. The choice is therefore simple. You can get an FX-8350 (which is an awesome CPU btw) or you can buy a new motherboard (probably with less features than you already have) and pay even more again for an Intel CPU. To me, the choice seems obvious, the FX-8350.
