Intel vs AMD, which is better ?
Is AMD FX-8320 processor better than Intel Core i5 4570 ? Or are they same ? AMD is a little cheaper than the intel, so is it not that good compared to an I5 ?
- Best answer
if devs actually made use of all 8 cores the amd chips have to offer then i'd say amd. but considering 99% of applications utilize only up to 4 cores, i'd say Intel. I hate using this term BUT, the 8320 might be more "future-proof". in the future, applications will take advantage of more cores so thats pretty much why i said future-proof.
60% faster... are you sure you aren't comparing it to like an Athlon X2? :P
Like I said, it all depends on what you're doing with it.
I see your one useless website and raise you with another- http://www.cpu-world.com/Compare/367/AMD_FX-Series_FX-8320_vs_Intel_Core_i5_i5-4570.html
So in your cpuboss link, I see the i5 rates a 9.8 in single core performance compared to the FX's 8.1. That about sums it up.
Yes the i5 as Cturbo said is faster by a bit with the single thread performance but wat application that still prefers fast cores that maybe run off a dual core or so suffer on the slower fx cpu? Theres a difference in a in general single thread performance to being specific for a application. If ur looking to get one or the other its not for the lower end games and programs that run better off single faster cores its probably for a wide variety of high threaded programs to web browsing to older games that most likely will run fine on both with minor fps difference. I can see the single thread performance being an issue in something that isnt a quad core or if it was the i5 vs the 4300 or something
If something is written or coded for less cores and faster core performance wouldnt it run fine on both? with the intel just being a little bit better? Im looking at this as older games and basic stuff as not sure wat else exactly uses the faster cores to makes a huge difference other than a benchmark
Intels single thread performance is wat makes a lower core count keep up with the higher core count of the fx cpus, for games and stuff that use 4+ cores, or its the fact that amd upped the clock speed and the core count to keep up to intel either way multi threaded wise there basically even and from what im thinking uses the lower core count and stuff as both will run it so whether or not its a 60% difference does it matter in normal use situations?
