CPU comparison

could somebody tell me which is better, Intel i5 3570k 3.4Gz or the AMD FX-4100 3.6GZ people are saying intel is better even though the AMD has a higher clock. Could someone please explain

  1. Intel is better. AMD overclocks with the Base Clock, Intel overclocks with the multiplier. The only thing that matters is the end ghz, which Intel will reach a higher number than AMD.
  2. Intel i5 3570k 3.4Gz - much, much better choise for any task
    AMD FX-4100 has only 2 modules (1 module has 2 sub-cores, but it's not powerful enough as usual cpu-core), Intel i5 3570k - 4 cores
    and you can overclock k-series CPU to get more performance (if your PSU can handle it)
    also, FX-series CPUs has worse MHz/performance ratio than modern Intel CPUs (FX-4100 @ 4GHz ~ i3 @2.8GHz or somewhere near)
    sorry, pretty bad know english(
  3. Higher clock speed =/= better performance. It comes down to how efficiently the CPU's design can operate at a clock speed. The FX-4100 has terrible efficiency, and no matter how high you overclock it, it will fry itself to death long before it could dream of doing what a non overclocked 3570K can do.

    If the price difference doesn't tell you something, than I will. the FX-4100 isn't even in the same league as the 3570K.
  4. Actually you can´t compare an i5 3570k 3.4Gz with an AMD FX-4100 3.6GZ, though they are similar in speed. Perhaps you could compare a FX-4100 with an i3-2120, i5-2310, and i5-3450, as they are similar in CPU frequency and price.

    A Core i5-3570K costs as twice as a FX-4100.

    So the i5-3570K is a lot better.
  5. Clocks are not everything...There are far more considerations of a CPU's performance. The intel will TROUNCE the fx4100.
