All the best Brett m 0 l varun5050 August 18, 2012 5:55:58 AM guys i am not convinced yet....please tell me which amd cpu would be best for heavy multi-core processing.... m 0 l wr6133 a b à CPUs August 18, 2012 8:25:05 AM For your server uses the 1100T may be better with its proper independent cores. For your PS uses the 8150 actually benchmarks faster (4 seconds faster in retouch artists) if you PS ALOT those small differences add up to a larger amount. So if PS is the priority take the 8150, If effective multitasking and server usage is a priority 1100T. Personally I would get the cheapest if you wanted to do this properly you would be going server class anyway. m 0 l varun5050 August 18, 2012 9:35:55 AM thanks wr6133 , I guess your reply was really helpful... thanks m 0 l fazers_on_stun a b à CPUs August 18, 2012 1:05:25 PM ^ Personally I'd get the 8120 and then oc it a bit - same thing as the 8150 except lower-binned.. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
