I know intel is almost always better than amd for gaming. how big of a difference is the i5 3570k vs fx 8350?. what if next gen gaming will require more cores. like now im pretty sure u need 4 cores to run a game now. but cant they just deside to make a game suddenly need 5 or 6 for whatever reason? wouldnt amd be ahead of intel? or is the 8 core cpu really 4 core and 4 virtual core thats something i recently heard?

Yeah, in those comparisons, the FX-8350 is put up against Intel CPU's that, except for one, all cost more. Let's compare newegg prices shall we?

AMD FX-8350 - $200
Intel i5-2550K - $243
Intel i5-3470 - $190
Intel i5-3570K - $210
Intel i7-3770K - $325

Now it's true that the i5-3570K is the best gaming chip of the bunch, but in almost everything else including video encoding and file compression/extraction, it loses badly to the FX-8350. The FX-8350 is still more than enough for perfectly smooth gaming at max settings so I'd still take the FX-8350. Oh wait, I already did! LOL

go for FX 8350....Intel are good for single-threaded performance.....
FX8350 offers more bang for buck.The mext gen games have already started utilising 8 cores...BF4 and Watchdogs are your examples!!
