Shifting from phenom 920 to bullodzer 8120 Tags: CPUs Phenom Components Last response: January 14, 2013 7:25 PM in Components Share sankhanew January 14, 2013 6:57:08 PM Hello, Is shifting from Phenom 920 to bulldozer 8120 a good move. Basically the system will be used for gaming and watching movies at times. I game a resolutions close to 1024 * 1280 so will shifting the CPU make fair difference in the frame rates (as I know that games are more CPU bound at lower resolutions) My graphics card is a 7850. I am a bit worried since in one of the CPU benchmarks in tom's hardware the phenom 920 is placed along with the 8120 as far as gaming is concerned. Thanks in advance More about : shifting phenom 920 bullodzer 8120 Brett928S2 a b à CPUs January 14, 2013 7:08:56 PM duplicate post yyk71200 a b à CPUs January 14, 2013 7:13:06 PM I strongly recommend you going with Vishera (such as 8320) instead of Bulldozer. Vishera is stronger. Actually, for your purpose such as gaming, you may consider 6300 to save money since games are not that well threaded. Can't find your answer ? Ask !

As far as i know, your CPU is able to keep above 40+ fps even in full HD. but is up to you where you sink your money. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
