i know you guys already got this question a TON of times but i am about to order one of these but i dont know which one to get :(  so what is your opinion (both are in the budget) i am leaning more towards the amd because watch dogs recommended a 8 core cpu :0,and is battlefield 4 running better on amd ATM? which is better overall? i know intel is alot faster on single threaded apps can you name some? thanks

More about : 4670k amd 8350

If you know this question is asked all of the time, why not just search the forum for the answer? Personally I would get the i7 if that is within budget other wise the 8350. Only reason I would get an i5 is for single threaded importance in something like World of Warcraft.

couldn't find someone that was asking the same question as me :p

Pretty sure it is there. Either way, statement holds true. I went AMD simply because of the price/performance ratio and the next gen consoles being AMD. Either way though, I wouldnt get an i5 unless i7 is out of budget and you NEED the single core performance.

Well... If my memory don't fail me, WOW can take advantages with up to three cores. So I guess it won't really matter. AS usual, the GC will do the trick.

I'am on a phenom IIx4 955 (3.2 Ghz)+HD6950 : all the games run perfectly. (WOW with all settings at max runs about 40-50 FPS. Oh... One game is very slow : Star-Wars... But i think it's due to the awfull engine :/  )

I'd rather buy the 8350 ;) 

Update : if you're a big fan of after effect, i think the 8350 could be a lot of help to reduce rendering time...

Save your money and buy an FX 8320. FX 8350 is just a multiplier overclocked FX 8320.

Why get an i7 at all?

For gaming there's very little difference between a i5 and an i7 aside from price point. For Haswell there's a ton of reason to get the i5-4670k and nothing more expensive. That said the i5 will beat any of AMD's offerings clock for clock.

(Fixed a typo)

That rule is slowly fading away. Look at BF4 benchmarks. Games going forward will be more like that with regards to multithread capability.

Multithreading is obviously improving. Finally. I can attest to the fact that the BF4 Beta was horrible performance wise. LOL My i5-750 @ 4GHz would run around 80% most of the time I played. And I'd stutter all over the place in certain areas of the map. Latency was like 64ms. Using a GTX 770 I'd run 50-60FPS and suddenly hit 20-30. Meanwhile I was only using 4GB of RAM (I have 8GB). That said I did have the Beta running on a Hard Disk and not an SSD. So I could have been suffering from severe data load issues. But it only happened in specific locations.

I've yet to find any reliable CPU benchmarking with BF4 yet.

WoW generally likes Intel better, but as you know, is still quite playable on AMD hardware as well.
