Intel Core i7-3770K Features

The following information is courtesy of Intel

4 Cores, 8 Threads
Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0
Intel Hyper-Threading Technology
Supports LGA1155 socket Intel X77/Z68/P67 Express Chipset-based motherboards
Up to 8 MB Intel Smart Cache
2 channels of DDR3 1600 MHz
16 PCI Express Gen 3 Lanes
Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions (Intel® AVX)
Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions (AES-NI) PCLMULQDQ Instruction
RDRAND instruction for random number generation

Pros:

+ Lower power than Sandy Bridge, although this isn't significant for desktop platforms
+ Faster and cheaper (if not by much) than Sandy Bridge CPUs
+ Intel HD4000 iGPU significantly faster than HD3000
+ Can be used in Z68-series motherboards (with vendor BIOS support)
+ Still the best performance in a mainstream consumer CPU

Cons:
- Still only 16 PCI-E lanes
- Early production stepping doesn't overclock as well as current Sandy Bridge

BEST FOR GAMING.


AMD FX-8350 Eight-Core Turbo Speed: 4.2 GHz

Description: Socket: AM3+, Clockspeed: 4.0 GHz, Turbo Speed: 4.2 GHz, No of Cores: 4 (2 logical cores per physical), Max TDP: 125 W
Other names: AMD FX(tm)-8350 Eight-Core Processor
CPU Launched: NA
CPUmark/$Price: 48.49 Overall Rank: 40
Last Price Change: $189.99 USD (2012-10-24)
Average CPU Mark 9212

AMD FX-8350 Features

The following information is courtesy of AMD

CPU base clock: 4.0GHz, Turbo clock 4.2GHz
L2 cache: 8M L3 cache: 8M
TDP: 125 watts
Native DDR3 1866 memory support (2 channels)
Advanced instructions: SSE3, SSE 4.1/4.2, AES, Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX), plus FMA4 and XOP
1 HyperTransport link, up to 5.2GT/s
Completely unlocked
For AMD 990-series chipset


Pros:

+ Eight cores and 5GHz on your desktop computer
+ Officially supports DDR3-1866 memory
+ Better performance than Intel on multithreaded tasks
+ An FX system has 38 usable PCI-E lanes as opposed to the 24 lanes of a Sandy Bridge system
+ Excellent price/performance ratio, finally competitive with Intel in the $200 CPU range, fastest in its range.
+An overclockers dream.

Cons:
- Single core performance still lags far behind Intel (more expensive models)
- Few programs use new FX instructions like fused multiply-add, so the full performance potential remains untapped.


BEST FOR 64Bit APPS, THAT UTILIZE ALL 8 CORES.

  1. *sighs*
  2. Thats it.
  3. + Eight cores and 5GHz on your desktop computer
    Eight cores, 5GHz with lower performance compared to a 4-core counterpart only consumes more power without kicking in any more performance. Except for bragging rights of 8-cores, I don't see how it is a step up from the more efficient, better-performing Core i7-3770K.

    + Better performance than Intel on multithreaded tasks

    The i7-3770K still runs faster in most circumstance which can utilise all 8 cores of AMD's FX8350. Well, the i7-3770K is priced at $300, while the FX8350 is at $200. That justifies. If you are comparing, have i5-3570K and FX8350 instead.
  4. AMD,
    + Excellent price/performance ratio, finally competitive with Intel in the $200 CPU range, fastest in its range.
  5. What sort of user are you (i.e. what will you be using your PC for)?
  6. Intel Core i7-3770 vs. AMD FX-8350! ''AIO PC CPU.''

    All In One Personal Computer Central Processing Unit.
  7. In gaming Intel ussally wins due to the better ipc/better per core performance.
  8. all in one - intel, because its cooler, AIO's will be more thermally limited than a std desktop.
  9. 13thmonkey - is that on the name of Bruce Willis awesome movie.

    For an AIO build, they are both solid processors.
  11. I have a i5 IB, and these days on this site, i have supported AMD so much, people might think i am advertising AMD, they hired me to do so, but the truth is i had a budget of 200$ but there was no Intel processor in that price range in my area or on internet (no 3470!) so i bought a 3450 instead. Usually, where i live temperature reaches around 45 Celsius, and AMD is not right for conditions here but a place like Minnesota, it's the best option or if you have an AC at your place.
  12. you have to match up the 8350 with fast ram for it to shine
  13. sorry i think amd has an 8 physical core and 1 logical per it

    All that benchmark are based on Floting Point Op., the AMD FX-series are designed for Integer Operations, Intel is designed for Floting Point Op.
