AMD FX8350 vs Intel i5-3570k I want the hard truth. Video Rendering and Multi-tasking.

AMD FX-8350 4.0GHz 8-Core Processor + Corsair H100i 77.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler + Asus Crosshair V Formula-Z ATX AM3+ Motherboard + Corsair Vengeance Pro 16GB (4 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory + Asus Radeon HD 7970 3GB Video Card...... VS ...... Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor + Corsair H90 94.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler + Asus SABERTOOTH Z77 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard + Corsair XMS 32GB (4 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory + Asus GeForce GTX 660 Ti 3GB Video Card...... Don't talk about budgets issues, I want to know more about the hardware and I would like to hear it from someone who has actually used both configurations. And if there are other suggestions, I would like to hear them too.

  1. You realize there are probable a hundred threads on this exact same subject, did you search the forums?

    This is a very much dead pony that just continues to get a beating.
  2. I am using fx 8350. I had two options 4670k or fx 8350. But without a doubt fx 8350 is better than 3570k is better in video rendering as it has more cache and it surely has advantage for multitasking as it has 8 cores. But for gaming - in most games 3750k outperforms fx 8350, except in those games which use 8 cores. And fx 8350 has better overclocking limit (5-5.1 Ghz) than 3570k. But 3570k is more power consuming and will also not be a bad option.
    It still depends on what you wan't.
    3570k pros : Stronger single core performance,
    will be better in games which use 2-4 cores.
    power consuming.
    fx 8350 pros: has 8 cores.
    more cache.
    better in games which use 8 cores ( could be also future proof for gaming).
    can be better overclocked well.

    I searched and all I found was the warfare between AMD and Intel brands.

    What would you say about the latest FX CPU? Is it worth the price? And what components would you advice?

    I guess, by latest fx cpus you mean the fx 9370 and fx 9590. fx 9370 is just like an overclocked fx 8350 (probably only a bit stonger). And without a doubt fx 9590 is an overclocked version of 9370. But they use 220W power. Thats too much and will affect your yearly electricity bills, so I think don't try for fx 9xxx series but try for fx 8350 or 3570k, and overclock them till your will.
