AMD FX-8350 vs Intel i5-4670k

Intel i5-4670k or AMD FX-8350(for gaming mostly and normal use)? over here i'm looking for performance, quality and durability. if you guys select a processor from this, can you please tell why?and also could you suggest a good MOBO which would be best for the processor(budget for MOBO is $140)?

  1. Here is the CPU boss comparison.

    http://cpuboss.com/cpus/Intel-Core-i5-4670K-vs-AMD-FX-8350

    Go with the i5.

    I'm looking into a mobo.
  2. i5 is better,it is much cooler and it is enegy efficent ,you wont get anything with fx 8350.Good mobo is any Asus for that price.What gpu you have?And game can use 4 cores max (eg. BF4)

  4. Best answer
    There have been 1000s of questions asked on same topic. So I would make you a brief answer. Mostly on the games which use 8 cores, fx 8350=4670k, It may even outperform 4670k because of 8 physical cores. But it is only as good as 4670k on 8 threaded games or applications. In the near future all the games will be 8 threaded. So, here it is.

    Reasons to buy fx 8350 :
    Has physical 8 cores so it is better in Multitasking.
    better in video editing.
    better in streaming.
    Is favorable on 8 threaded apps and games, but not by much.
    Saves some money, enough to buy an extra cooler and oc the cpu to match/outperform 4670k.

    Reasons to buy 4670k:
    Less power consuming.
    Almost twice the stronger single cpu core than fx 8350's single cpu core.
    Beats 8350 in 90% of the games.
    Run a lot better on apps or games which use 2-4 cores.

    Although Bf4 run slightly better 4670k. Crysis 3 runs quite better on fx 8350. So it depends on what kind of optimization is given to the game.
    Yet I think 4670k could prove an equally good or better choice than fx 8350.

    FYI if you are on a budget pc, then fx 8350 can prove better choice as you can save some money for a better gpu.

    the thing is, i'am low on budget($800)!! but you make it sound like FX-8350 isn't great for gaming. i'm going with the ASUS GTX 760 or the Zotac version, but which processor should i go with since 4670k is $250?!

    It's not that fx 8350 isn't good for gaming. It's really good, good enough to ultra any game if provided an equivalent gpu. But for $800 build you will be good with fx 8350 and a gpu like hd 7970 or r9 280 or gtx 770, and you will be able to afford them with 8350.

    i have an amd fx 8120 ( alot worse than the 8350) and its superfast i can run any game maxed out with no probs and i have alot of lee way to oc aswell
  11. At what price are you getting gtx 760?
  12. just saying my friend bought a MSI R9 290x 4GB GDDR5 MSI TWIN FROZER for 110 pounds which is 180 dollars

    what a steal

    well, my currency is not the US Dollar, if you reconvert the GTX 760 over here its $325 and GTX 770 is $485! but the FX-8350 is $220 and 4670k is $250! this is why i think going with GTX 760 is a better idea and i can buy other components too.
