FX Series

I was wondering, why are the FX series processors with so much power bad for gaming? The FX 8350 has 8 cores and 4.0ghz is worse than the 3570k which is 4 cores @ 3.4ghz. Are they cheap CPUs or something, are they bad built or not good material.

  1. They are not bad for gaming at all. It's just that Intel CPUs are overall better, but more expensive CPUs.
  2. Well the i5-3570K is the same price as the 8350, so it's a stretch to say Intel is more expensive.

    The Ghz rating is just a measure of clock frequency, not the ability to perform work. Just like two cars with a 3L V6 engine may have vastly different torque and horsepower ratings. Intel has a more efficient architecture that gets more work done at the same frequency.
