I currently have an fx 4100 overclocked to 4ghz and I was thinking of upgrading to the fx 8150 as an AMD fan would it be worth it? or should I wait for piledriver?
what do you use the PC for? rendering, photoshop, gaming, etc.?
if you're doing anything like AutoCAD 3D, photoshop or any programs that fully utilizes the number of cores /threads, then yes, the 8150 will show some improvement, and grabbing it now wouldn't be so bad if you're REALLY impatient. not the best solution, but a solution nonetheless.
gaming, or non-threaded applications on the other hand,http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-fx-pentium-apu-benchmark,3120-9.htmlhttp://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-fx-pentium-apu-benchmark,3120-5.htmlhttp://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-fx-pentium-apu-benchmark,3120-4.html
you won't see a load of improvement. i'd suggest you OC the 4100 a bit more first and see how that goes.
