[CPUs]Last decition i5 3570K or FX 8320

Ok guys, i already have in mind these 2 cpus ( i5 3570K or FX 8320)
I will chose depending whats better for my pc and to keep this few years, i want it only for GAMES

My resolution is 1600x900...i have a GTX 460 1GB(thinking to buy new one in near future)...and my psu 600W

Ill buy the mother depending which cpu im going to buy


Some help ? :D
Thanks in advance

  1. If you only plan on playing at 1600x900 it doesn't really matter.

    However, if you only focus on gaming, then the 3570K is the right choice!

    +1
  3. 3570K gets my vote as well.

    AMD has committed to maintain socket compatibility with next gen FX chips released next year. Intel has committed to breaking socket compatibility with next gen chips next year.

    current FX performs better in some tasks than Intel, and worse in others.

    FTFY
  6. MOST what?

    MOST properly written multi-thread programs... FX wins

    MOST old school do everything in a couple of threads... Intel wins.

    Maybe you don't know but heavily multi-threaded programming is just going to increase in the future.
  7. yes. most.

    even with highly optimized programs for multi-threarding, a 3770k still wins most of the time. by quite a bit i might add. when amd wins its just barely.

    edit: and rarely.
  8. Wrong.

    AMD FX-8350 slaughters Intel 3770k in media encoding, which happens to be one of the tasks that multi-threaded programming is mature.
  9. even if that were true, which it is not, quicksync is the fastest way to encode
  10. Multimedia encoding benches are on openbenchmarking.org. I've done my own H264 benchmarks, so I don't need an Intel fan to tell me which encoder to use to give Intel a win.

    Here's a link to game benchmarks for FX-8350, where they actually give the BIG wins to FX, and some smaller wins to Intel.

    The bottom line is that Intel fans want everyone to believe that there is a huge performance delta between Intel and AMD. The reality is that is not the case.
  11. Also neon, why are you comparing a $300 Intel CPU to a $200 AMD CPU???

    It is well known by know that (RE 3570k (not 3770k) vs FX-8350) Intel wins at single threaded applications but AMD wins at multithreaded applications.

    Regarding gaming, both CPUs are very valid competitors and great OCers.

    I agree. I hate these fanboys. They don't understand either that it actually would NOT be good if Intel was completely owning AMD in every aspect. The end result would simply be ridiculously high prices and performance increases would be very minimal in future gen CPUs because they would not need to develop high performing CPUs anymore. Basically, Intel would be able to do what they want which would not be good.
  13. not a fanboy for any company. my videocard is made my amd, ive owned several amd processors.

    just stating the facts.
  14. It's for gaming mainly, the 3570K is better! That's the fact.
