Which to choose for bf4, gta V, next gen games for at least 3 years? I only need for gaming
December 4, 2013 12:33:31 PM

I used to have an FX 6300, and i recently upgraded to a 4670k. The FX 6300 was actually getting me a bit better frame rates before i overclocked, but after I overclocked the 4670k gave me way better frame rates. Although the 8350 and 4770k are both good overclockers, the i7 will just scale way better than the 8350 in terms of overclocking. If you don't plan on overclocking, I suggest the AMD.

If you only need it for gaming, you'll only need the i5-4670k. Assuming budget is not an issue, Intel is always the better choice.

But if you happen to do editing or rendering, the i7 will blow the 8350 away.

i7 4770K
but for gaming rig you can buy i5 4670K and save yourself some money...
performance in almost every game would be more or less the same...

But wouldn t be an i7 better for future games? Cuz i think games will need more cores for playing max out ? What do you think ?

AMD has more cores than intel. Intel uses hyperthreading.

yes i know that but intels per core performance is better. But is i7 4770 realy worth so much more € $ than a fx 8350 which i know is an oc beast with a good cooler ?

i7 may be more "future proof" because of its hyperthreading...
but right now it doesn´t matter because many games can still utilize only 2 cores ,
only the most cpu intensive titles make use of more cores

Core for core, as you've already said, Intel wins hands down. In 2-3 years (when you plan to upgrade) is when games might start utilizing more cores.. As of now it's still mostly based on graphics power. The i5-4670k is on par, and better in some games than the 8350, getting the i7 would be overkill, but in the case you do get the i7, you won't have to worry about a 8350 outperforming you.

ok thanks :D ! but what about i7 3770 vs i7 4770 is the 4th generation worth 20 € in my country more than 3770 k ?

get the K version of 4770 for future overclocking...

go with an i5 4670k. you'd rather need to upgrade the gpu in the future than the cpu, and you can oc the i5 as well.

so intel it is . Cuz i really dont want to change again the cpu every 2 3 years . (i got amd phenom x4 965 BE oc to 3.8 GHz)

im more intresing in the gpu for next year or 2.


and how about the mobo? ASUS MAXIMUS VI HERO (C2) or ASROCK Z87 Extreme6 or MSI Z87-GD65 Gaming ? i will ovc in the future

all of those motherboards have proven to be very good. You can't go worng by going with any of those. The ASUS has been said to have the best quality components.

I think the more important question here is what is your graphics card? Save a little on the CPU and get a better graphics card as that will give you the biggest performance increase. Most modern processors are entirely capable. If you get a good graphics card you won't notice the difference between the processors listed since you'll blow past 60FPS.

I do agree with what everyone here has said though, IF budget isn't a concern (i.e it doesn't take out of what you can spend on the Graphics card) then go with the i5 4670k, it's a beast.

for now iv got evga 570 gtx superclocked but im not planing to replace it yet i will wait for 2nd generation of amd gpus which im presuming they will come in 2014 . And amd gpus are not so expensive as nvidia and they produce beast cards for the money :D

But still i watched cpu benchmarks a lot and as far i saw fx 8350 is better in some games and in some is i5 or i7. I think the reason is the optimization for the cpu. (example there are some games optimazed for amd in which fx 8350 got more fps ) am i wrong ?

For the most part the i5 4670k will be better. If you were to get, for example, an R9 280x you would not notice any difference between the CPUs. With your GPU, you might. Since anything over 60FPS you won't actually see, and both CPUs can achieve that.

The i5 4670k will be better for single-threaded (older) games, and the FX and i5 are similar in better threaded games (2-4+). And then with the FX you have a few cores idle available for other multitasking. But overall the i5 4670k will perform better, but the disparity is difficult to claim. Personally, I went with an FX 8320 as I'm not going to pay so much more just for a minimal FPS gain, you can get more out of a good GPU. You're correct, some games are optimized for either brand.

firstly i was looking for an fx 8350 and assus formula V - z and it cost about 150 € less than i7 4770 k and assrock z87 extreme 6 . im only looking for cpu that will handle games on max for at LEAST 2 but better 3 years :D  . If fx 8350 can do that im going with it if not the 150 € is better to invest in intel i7 i think

To 'handle' games is more dependent on your graphics card, either CPU would be great, it's the GPU that really matters. Old Phenoms still hold up alright if you pair them with a decent graphics card, these FX/i7s will be around for a while yet.

all of these processors are powerfull enough to run modern games on max. settings
but your gtx570 however is a bit outdated and you will have to make compromises on image quality
in order to get the smooth gaming experience ...

yes i know gpu is very important and im planing to change it but next year . The cpu and the mobo for overclocking is what im looking now :D  and right now i found this mobo GIGABYTE Z87X-D3H. Is it good for some overclocking cpu ?

So the better choice for me would be go with fx 8350 and assus formula V z and save money for next amd r3 i think gpu cards when they will come ?

My finaly question is about fx 9370 . and yes i know is just an oc 8350 and doesn t got a cooler and probarly need a liquid cooler , but can u still overclock it or ? And how better preformance it have compare to 8350 stock ?

That's an intel motherboard, you need a motherboard with an AM3+ socket if you're going with the FX. This will help: http://www.overclock.net/t/946407/amd-motherboards-vrm-... You can check through brands and models, and generally the higher the phase design the better it will be for overclocking.

yes yes i know it was an intel mobo i was asking it if i would pick i7 if that mobo was good for ovc :D
