I like to play demanding games like modded skyrim, crysis 3, metro last light, battlefield 4 and future games like star citizen, crysis 4, fallout 4, watch dog, fallout 4 etc. With this in mind, would a fx-8350 perform better than a i5 4670 for me since i don't play older games? and how does a fx-8350 compare to the i7 4770? Thanks!

-Its good for upcoming gaming, though I would just save money and get the 8320.
-Unless you get a good OC on the 8320/50, the 4670 is going to be faster. 8 core optimizations have definately helped the FX series but it isn't magic.
-I think the 4770 is better in most situations against the FX 8350.

Dont buy the i7.. go for the 4670k. 8 core optimization is going to take a long time, and also remember the fact that around 50% of the steam users use dual core, and 50% quadcore.

I agree with everything you said, but don't forget that the 4670 can be overclocked as well. ;)  If a game is heavily CPU dependant, the 4670 at 4.5ghz will show higher frames than a FX-8320 at 4.5ghz unless the game can take full advantage of all 8 cores. OP, the 4770k is the most future proof CPU of the 3 IMO.

If we are talking games .. then we are talking GPU not .. cpu ...

but anyway ...

i would say if u can afford 8350 .. that would be best... better base core ... better overclock headroom ... .. i got one myself and i love it..

if u got money for the i7 4770k .. its better than 8350 .. but cost more cash ...

8350 have better preformance/cash

so as said games = Gpu .... so consider GTX 780.. or r9 280X/290 .. i would not go amd right now since prices are really high

also nvidia going to make new generation in Feb or march .. better stay and see what they got

The 8350 is about the same as an i5 in gaming performance and the i7 is a bit better than both but allot more in price, so its currently not worth it

The i5 has a better per core performance than the 8350 and runs cooler.

I know once the resolution increases, they balance out better. Still a notable difference though between the FX-8350 and the i5 2500/3500 series. The 4600 series i5's were not out at the time of these reviews, and are just a hair faster than the 3500 series i5's.


Here are some more benches with 1080p included:

PS: Some of these games have been known to be effected by memory bandwidth(F1 for example), and intel has quite a bit more momery bandwidth as well. There is still a decent difference in alot of games, that weigh in favor the intel chips.
