Fx-8120 cores or fx-6 ghz for multitasking and 3d rendering?
hi guys, Few months back i logged on dis site (though dis site has been amazing source of reference for long time) and got tremendously positive feedback which wer extremely helpful.
I have been planning to build (its a budget build rig) a system which will be commonly used for multitasking and 3d applications OOHH... and a "lil bit" for gaming
But the main objective is MULTITASKING, PHOTO REALISTIC 3D RENDERING, other 3D APPLICATIONS to work with..... and am not a heavy gamer..but expect good detail though
So my actual ques... is dat "What really matters NUMBERS OF CORES or SPEEDY GHz wen it comes to perform above mentioned tasks"? CPU dat am confused between is
email@example.com/4.0 GHz and firstname.lastname@example.org/4.1 GHz... I know i will be suggested with other better option like "INTEL etc..blah blah"
but its a budget building rig so plz and my dis pc is gonna
AGAIN..the main question is "What really matters NUMBERS OF CORES or SPEEDY GHz wen it comes to MULTITASKING, PHOTO REALISTIC 3D RENDERING, operating other 3D APPLICATIONS and RENDER ENGINES"?
really expect full proof feedback.....HELP
thx in advance guys..

More about8120 cores multitasking rendering
For multi-tasking CORES! The more cores the better it can handle more applications. If you are video editing etc, get the fx-8120.
I would say get the 8120. Also those are easy to do a mild overclock on. just set up the bios to mimick the 8150 and 90% of the time it will run without even touching the voltage or any other settings.
end story, you get the best of both, speed and cores for the price of the 8120.
Not calling it ghz because thats not accurate. It all depends on how well the program utilizes separate cores or how well it responds to raw speed. For the most if you do not overclock at all, in theory they sould be really close in performance. but overclocked to 6100 speed, the 8 core will tear the 6 core apart.
For 3D rendering I would go for cores. If you have a good PSU, decent board, and decent cooling you can push it to probably 4Ghz easily.
tnx for the help guys and so we are convinced with fx-8120. Done done and btw am going with
Asus M5A97-PRO 16gb ram ATI Radeon 6870 1tb hd 500 or 600w psu....
