Solved CPU AMD 1090t vs FX-8350 Tags: CPUs AMD 3D Last response: December 31, 2012 11:20 PM in CPUs Share Espie79 December 21, 2012 8:44:25 AM I have a amd 1090t CPU and do a lot of 3D rendering using 3D studio max. Is there a performance gain between the 2 chips? and if so, is the $200+ pricetag for the FX worth the added gain? Thanks More about : cpu amd 1090t 8350 Z1NONLY a b à CPUs December 21, 2012 9:59:58 AM There's a performance gain. I don't think it's worth $200 though. Value is subjective though, so here are some benchmarks: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/697?vs=146 If you spend a lot of time rendering, ~10 seconds per minute might add up to being worth $200. Best solution silverliquicity a b à CPUs December 21, 2012 10:01:36 AM thats more of a sideways upgrade, just overclock your 1090t, i got mine to 3.6ghz on stock fan with no voltage tweak. 1090t is an absolute beauty.

The FX 8350 is 25% faster than the x6 1090. Not sure how that is a sideways upgrade. And the 8350 over clocks too. The question is simply whether a 25% speed boost is worth $190 to the OP.
