Hello,

Is the i5 3350p worth the extra 23(euros) ?

FX 6300 132,90
AsRock 970 extreme 4 81,90

i5 3350p 149,90
AsRock z77 pro 3 87,90

I'm going to use the xfx hd 7870 core edition.
Mainly for gaming and some photoshopping/C4D

More about : 3350p 6300

the FX-6300 is a solid modern gaming CPU

the i5 is a good modern gaming CPU

the extra 23 euros are up to you if you are willing to spend them or would rather save them

Overall, at stock speed the i5-3350p would perform better than the FX-6300. You can click the following link for reference. The i5-3350p (3.1GHz, 3.3GHz Turbo Boost) is not list so the closest CPU would be the i5-3470 (3.2GHz, 3.6GHz Turbo Boost).

However, the i5 cannot be overclocked while the FX can be. So the FX's performance can be increased. AMD CPUs consume more power than Intel CPUs and overclocking will further widen the gap. Below is the link for total system power consumption.

I know it performs better but is it worth the money?
Does anybody know how much more fps the i5 get in a game like bf3?

ah damn now I'm at the point where I started. I first wanted to buy the i3 3220 and now it is better according to the tests than the fx 6300.
Please give me some advise wich one to buy. The fx 6300, i3 3220 or the i5 3350p?

I would avoid i3s as a few recent games don't like dual core, the FX6300 as stated has variable performance while the 3350p is a safe bet and good alround but the 6300 can overclock alot. also AM3+ will most likely support future CPUs and 1155 will not. If you plan to overclock get the 6300 if not the 3350p is definitely good and a safe option. Thats my opinion anyway.

Sorry I mean't to add if the GPU is reduced by spending more on the CPU then you should get the best CPU you can still get the 7870. And my advise is for the gaming use only as I have no idea on the other uses but I suspect they are similar.

defenatly going for the fx 6300 if that is the case.

but will those future CPUs ever offer socket 1155 i5/i7 performance....

Good choice and good luck. I don't think there is a bad choice between the 6300 & 3350p but if you want upgrade-ability AM3+ every time.

good point but I think they'll do, I don't think amd is going to let intel win this time. And if the new ones support AM3+ they must be better than the old fx serie.

If you look at crysis 3 benchmarks will intel ever offer AMDs performance (on a mainstrean CPU)?

AMD has already stated they are no longer competing against intel for performance so to answer your question, they will let intel offer better performance. in fact, that is their business plan

“We’re at an inflection point,” said AMD spokesman Mike Silverman, according to a Mercury News report. “We will all need to let go of the old ‘AMD versus Intel’ mindset, because it won’t be about that anymore.”

Here is a brief summary for both

i5-3550P
-----------

Faster 4 cores
Almost zero overclocking ability
No upgradability to Haswell or future chips (Socket 1155 has come to an end)
Low power consumption
Since it has no integrated graphics (P edition), if your Graphics card dies, you'll be left with an unusable system till you get a replacement.

FX-6300
----------

6 medium speed cores
Unlocked multiplier, very easy overclocking
Can upgrade to future SteamRoller chips on the same AM3+ socket
High power consumption
Althought the CPU doesn't have a backup integrated graphics, some motherboard do (not sure which chipset), so you won't be stuck with an unusable box if your card fails :) 

However, both are more than capable of handling high end gaming, and as games slowly start using more cores (like crysis3), the FX-6300 should get rid of any gaming performance delta it has with the i5 :)

I would recommend the 6300. It is a very capable CPU for modern gaming.

Man that applies right back at you :D 

Maybe I'm blind, or the FX-6300 isn't mentioned on that list !!
If you see the difference between the FX-8350 and 8150, I'm pretty sure that FX-6300 can manage 56 FPS easy.

And maybe you find plain English difficult to comprehend, but I've stated "as games slowly start using more cores". What I mean is the gaming situation 3-4 years down the road, so I don't know what you trying to prove by posting a benchmark that's barely 2 weeks old.

Don't make baseless assumptions on me with your lack of PC knowledge. You have already proved your failure of understand and have no soap box to stand on. I have been building and fixing PCs for longer then you have been alive using both AMD and Intel CPUs. The FX-6 in many aspects acts as 3-core CPU due to its shared resources and offers performance similar to its price. It is not and never will be an intel i5. As for as 3-4 years down the road, you don't understand gaming and PC tech today, why and how would you understand anything 3-4 years down the road? Many fan boys like yourself come on this forum and tell people how "it will be 3-4 years down the line" and you all sound the same, full of crap.

PS. Save your smiley faces for your teenage counterparts. It makes you look childish and immature

Based on the following benchmarks the FX-6300 actually does quite well in Crysis 3.



Source: http://www.pcgameshardware.de/Crysis-3-PC-235317/Tests/...


I used the same graph in another thread yesterday regarding CPU scaling in Crysis 3.

The i5-3350p is not listed as part of the benchmarks though. However, the general consensus is that Ivy Bridge is on average 6% more powerful than Sandy Bridge. The i5-3350p is clocked at 3.1GHz that means it is almost equivalent to a 3.3GHz (3.286GHz to be exact) quad core Sandy Bridge CPU. The closet match would be the i5-2500k at 3.3GHz.

The performance difference between the FX-6300 (46.4 FPS) and i5-2500k (46.2 FPS) is 0.2FPS. Given a margin of error of 0.5% since benchmark results can fluctuate bases on some background windows processes, the two CPUs basically gives similar performance.

i5's are top of the line for gaming. i would get it in this order i5 > fx 6300 > i3
