I'm really tempted to upgrade to the AMD FX 8150 from AMD Phenom II x6 1045t. I have mixed reviews about it can some people tell me what they think.

More about : amd 8150

Best solution

The FX series were a disappointment on release but the FX8150 is still a better CPU than your current one, here compared with 1055! http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/434?vs=147

As rolli said they were disappointing, but that may well have been more due to hype than anything else. I have one though, and it's not like I'm getting a bottleneck. It really depends what you want to do.

As for upgrading you might need a new motherboard to support AM3+ but that said some AM3 CPUs can support bulldozer with bios updates apparently.

Truthfully there isn't much difference other than overclocking. With tha 1045t locked multiplier, your limited to fsb overclocking. Its tricky to keep the other components balanced. Memory, ht, nb must remain stable while upping the fsb to get the cpu faster.
March 29, 2012 1:04:28 AM

No point upgrading. keep your 1045t and wait for pile driving Dont bother going to intel. Unless you really need it. the 1045t is a great processor and can still handle games fine. just pair it up with a high end gpu

Considering a stock Phenom II X6 1100 is better than an FX 8150 for games, it won't be much of an upgrade unless your overclocking, than the advantage will go to the FX 8150 because its unlocked multiplier makes overclocking easy.

Even with a better CPU your only going to get an improvement in BF3 if you have a really good video card, it's a very graphics demanding game. And I know from experience BF3 plays very well on a Phenom II X6 @ 2.8Ghz.

Personally I would wait until later this year and get a Piledriver based CPU, they're rumored to release in Q3, so 3-6 months from now.

Intel is the only real choice for the serious PC gamer.

Not only do Intel CPUs smoke AMD CPUs at equal clock rates, but they overclock far better, offer better compatibility with a wider range of systems, and are virtually better than AMD in every way imaginable.

I am sorry, but this is most certainly the case.

OP: Don't bother upgrading until you can upgrade to Intel. I recommend the i5 2500k w/ the Hyper 212+. Mine powers my dual 6970s and I don't have to push it past 4.40GHz to get perfect performance.

I Smell a intel fanboy. If you acctually read my post you would know i said only get the intel If you need it. and since the op already has a 1045t and a the mobo there is no real reason since the 1045t is a fine cpu. -+

Depends on what kind of system he needs to power. If his system is mid-range, than I guess the 1045t would suffice. But keep in mind that he is talking about upgrading, and the only real upgrade I see from the 1045t would be going to an Intel CPU.

Intel fanboy? To hear people tell it, there are fanboys for everything. PC fanboy, Sony fanboy, Halo fanboy, COD fanboy, Xbox fanboy, Nintendo fanboy, AMD fanboy, Nvidia fanboy, and now I hear "Intel fanboy".

To be honest, I couldn't care less whether a CPU is made by Intel or AMD. I have no loyalty to either one. I say that Intel's better because it is, and obviously so.

Just because someone has an opinion and is able to see which is better, doesn't really make him a fanboy.

Fair enough i currently own a core i7 and a amd 6100 and when gaming i really dont see a diffrence thats why i say this. i understand that intel cpus are better and they should be with over 70% of the market buying intel has Much more money to play around with since they have around 20 billon dollars? and amd dont even have half of that

Your a fanboi because you totally ignored the context of the question and immediately jumped to "Intel ONRY for gaming !!!!10101010111". Lack of perspective and thought paints you as such.

To the OP,
I have that same Board with a 970BE clocked @4ghz. Your CPU is good enough for everything your doing now, the 8150 would be a slight upgrade or a sidegrade depending. Wait for PD and if you feel you need it then you can purchase it. RCM alone guarantees that it'll be an upgrade to what you have.

To the peanut gallery,
He already has a $200 USD+ motherboard, "switching" to intel would entail him spending $400+ USD to for a new performance board and i5 CPU. Your asking him to spend considerably more money by switching his entire platform.

You can all think what you want. But the fact remains, he has pretty close to the best AMD CPU you can get right now. He is asking about upgrading. It don't take a rocket scientist to know that from a 1045t the next major step up would be the Intel Sandy Bridge. Anything less would be a waste of the OP's money and time. That is a fact, and if you geniuses knew anything about components, you wouldn't have a problem with someone pointing that out, calling him a fanboy.

OP: With all due respect, I think you are good just like you are. If you do upgrade, the Intel i5/i7 would be the next logical step up. And it would help to get yourself a 1155 motherboard, seeing as how the AM3 socket is just about done for and the 1155 socket will support the upcoming Ivy Bridges.

To me, that would be an investment worthy of your time and money, and it would open the door to have some very nice builds in the future.

The best way to identify a fanboy is that they rant on the pro's of one entity while refusing to acknowledge the pros of another entity. Whenever you see someone talk about a specific company rather then a specific set of products, that also indicates a fanboy.

The question was never I5 vs BD, Intel fanboys turned it into that. The question was if the 8150fx was worth buying over his current 1045T to which the answer is generally "No". A 8150FX is better then a 1045T which is only clocked at 2.7Ghz vs the 1100T which is 3.3Ghz . Going to the 8150fx would be an upgrade for his box, but it wouldn't be a huge upgrade and not worth the cost. Switching his entire platform to an i5 would definitely not be worth the cost. His best bet is to stay put for now, if his current CPU is absolutely not working for him then he should evaluate if he needs 6 cores or 4 cores. If 4 cores then get a 965BE and OC to 4Ghz, if absolutely needing 6 cores then get a 8120fx or a 1100T and call it a day.

Now welcome back to the conversation. I understand that your honor bound by the code of the internet to start a flame war, you may proceed.

March 29, 2012 7:41:55 AM

If you were stuck with the AM3+ platform, mind as well stick with AMD, since it's be less cost-effective to switch. However, like the others said, the 8150 won't be a worthwhile upgrade to your current cpu.

Honestly I was in this exact same predicament.

AMD 970BE clocked @4Ghz
Asus Sabertooth
4x4GB DDR3-1600 memory
2 x EVGA Geforce GTX580 Hydro II (yes this is all watercooled)
Samsung 830 256GB SSD
2 x 320GB 7200 RPM RAID0 (Steam / Games)

I was debating going to the 8150fx and couldn't find a good enough reason to. The ASUS 990FX board alone is worth staying with my current platform, especially as getting something on the same level would require LGA2011 and that is ridiculous. As my current setup can play any game I can find in 3D, I'm a happy camper. I'll be looking into PD when it comes out later, if it doesn't pan out then I can upgrade next year.

People really need to stop thinking you "NEED THE ABSOLUTE BEST RIGHT NOW!!!!!" mentality.

My personal suggestion would be stay where you are.

I have the older intel 775 socket Q9650 (C2Q) clocked at 4.2 atm and play BF3 ( my flavor of game for the past few months ) admirably with a 5870 (oc'd to 980 core 1275 mem ) on ultra ( no MSAA but high post AA ) @ 1920x1200 with 50-70 fps in multi-player. I wanted to upgrade b/c there is better stuff out there, should I? Not really if I can keep up with the big boys minus the MSAA. I may get 60-80 ( doubtfully ) with an i5/i7 but not worth the money for an upgrade if I 98% game on my system.

We may have older tech, but for gaming, we are still hanging in there.

Rock on with the AMD.

Funny thing is the 6970 and 7870 are more of side grades when compared to the good old 5870 the only thing that the newer techs really did allot better on is the efficiency and that's all.

No, its the fact that you come into a post with someone asking about wether or not (yes or no question) the 8150 is an upgrade for his 1045T. Fanboys come into threads like this, not even paying attention and start demanding that he buy Intel or he is an idot for having an AMD system.

HE NEVER ASKED ABOUT INTEL. PERIOD, end of story, bye bye, see you later.

Edit: people like this make me hate Intel even more. Seriously, does everyone work for intel or have intel stock so they must promote intel and worship intel? Let people decide for themselves if they don't ask about it.

I would stay as you are for now, I suspect when IVY is launched on Intel then AMD will tweak pricing a little in the weeks/months after in any event. It's pretty typical when new platforms of the competitor are released to maintain market share and interest. Take stock then as I suspect the price fluctuations of the AMD chips may well sway your thoughts and may even make the FX8150 more attractive financially but I suspect the gain won't be as high as you expect. What is your GPU and what resolution are you currently playing games on? I fear you may be upgrading for upgrading's sake - but it's always nice to have new parts and another reason to open the case and start tinkering... or perhaps that's just me.
March 29, 2012 11:30:12 AM

I understand that he is asking about an AMD CPU.

But let me put things in perspective by taking some of the things that's been said thus far and changing the situation around a tad for better understanding of where I'm coming from.

Umm .. what the heck are you smoking and why can't you share it with us.

Your actually advocating spending $400+ USD to get a few more FPS on video games?

If going from a 1045T to a 8150 for ~$200 is a bad deal, then going from a 1045T to an i5 + Performance board for $400+ is an even worse deal.

He said NOTHING about Intel, now go away fanboy and stop trying to turn this into an Intel vs AMD thread.

Umm .. what the heck are you smoking and why can't you share it with us.

Your actually advocating spending $400+ USD to get a few more FPS on video games?

best thread EVER! :) 


EDIT:

dear OP that 1045t is a fine CPU and it would not be advisable to try to upgrade at this time.
because the amd platform really doesn't have anything to upgrade to that is cost effective:)

Thinking about the fanboy's drug induced comments, I've decided to display them in a bit clearer light (lol at his comparing a 1045T to a 460...).

Guy:
I got a ATI 6950 but I've been thinking about getting a 7870 or 7950.

Forum Peoples:
Your current GPU is absolutely find, there is better stuff coming out soon so sit and wait.

Intel Fanboy:
OMG REAL GAMERS ONLY USE 680's.

Forum People:
We're not talking about Nvidia, he would have to change out his motherboard and spend another $200+ USD for a performance board to use that 680.

Intel Fanboy:
YOU GUYS AREN'T LISTENING, IT'S NVIDIA INTEL ONRY. IF YOU WANT TO PLAY GAMES YOU MUST USE NVIDIA INTEL!!!10010101

Forum People:
Umm ... his current GPU runs everything just fine, he wouldn't actually gain noticeable performance by spending all that extra money.

Intel Fanboy:
YOUR TELLING HIM WRONG, IT'S INTEL ONRY FOR GAMES CAUSE I SAY SO!!!

Forum People:
Huh ..... -.-?

Sadly most forum members on TH try and push Intel/Nvidia every chance they get and they call anyone whom says any different a troll.

Ok to start, I'm the Poster of this thread and more than half the comments have not been helpful. I'm not an Intel fan I have nothing against them in anyway I just like the underdog so I go AMD always have and I have always been satisfied with their products for my money. Which seeing as it is my money that is the goal, am I satisfied with the product. Do I know an i7 Intel CPU would blow an AMD FX 8150 out of the water, yes I am not retarded but the cost is not worth it and I love my Sabertooth Mobo.

Thank you to people like Rolli who actually posted benchmarks and stats not just comments. That is what I was looking for appreciate it.

And to answer another question, I play BF3 on 1920x1080 high right now with NVidia GTX 460 SLI.
