I5 3570k or wait for Vishera

Will the FX 8350 be able to compete with the i5 3570k as each are the same price. Here is my build:

£156.89 Processor Intel i5 3570K Quad 3.4Ghz (Or FX 8350) $253.22

£23.49 CPU Cooler Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo Processor cooler $37.91

£58.50 Motherboard ASUS P8B75-V (Or suitable AM3+) $94.42

£25.99 RAM Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR-3 1600Mhz $41.95

£67.27 Hard Drive Seagate Barracuda 2TB 7200RPM 3.5" $108.57

More about 3570k wait vishera
  1. It is likely that it will be cheaper and not able to compete with the 3570k, by my estimate.

    I would just get the 3570k now and skip the FX-8350.
  2. After the suckage that was the original FX lineup, I would not even think about a Piledriver CPU. At least wait to see if benchmarks coming out from multiple sites consistently show at least "decent" performance. If it doesn't at least beat a SB i3, don't waste your time (or money) on it.
  3. Hello, mmm i hope in Vishera, Piledriver in trinity have good results. (CPU + GPU) I asume the vishera is better for dedicated GPU. I just like to support the Intel competition, let's not good to let a single one has a monopoly.

    =P Just let yourself be guided by what you want, not what they say.

    Furthermore, only remain a few days to see the reviews. Take off of the doubt.
  4. Gut feeling... i5 would be better.

    At this point in time you might as well wait for benchmarks.
  5. I agree, we need a competitor in this space. If AMD can't do it then someone else needs to step up to the plate.

    AMD is only giving Intel enough competition to get the bare minimum in innovation out of Intel right now. They need to be doing more like they were circa 2000 when they were actually ahead sometimes.

    By ahead I mean in ahead in the areas the competitor is competing for, not as in ahead in onboard graphics which Intel only gives a passing concern to.

    Intel isn't competing for onboard graphics and AMD isn't competing for per core performance, so really we have two non-competing monopolies in place as it stands now.
  6. I would just go with the I5 now. I really don' think Pledriver will be able to compete with with the curret I5's. Even if it does have the performance they are claiming it will still only put it at the level the first generation I5's/I7's.
