I currently own a FX-8350 and have just upgraded cooling tremendously, and I wanted to know that if I overclocked my 8350 to 4.7Ghz or higher if it would actually perform better than a i5 3570k thats not O.C.

BENCHMARK:

and

Compared to this, the fx-8350 beats it overall..

Plus Im a big gamer, and I like to render vids sometimes, was the fx-8350 a good buy or should I have taken the i5-3570k..

Will this 8350 be a better choice in the long run?


It says on coretemp that it has 8 cores and 8 threads? IS the 8350 really an octocore.?

It performs better than that i5, but it depends on which game you are playing. Some games like Skyrim work better with intels architecture and with other games it doesn't make a difference. If you were to overclock the 8350 to 4.7ghz it would score over 10000 on CPU benchmark.net. It's hard to say which is better in the long run, but quite possibly the 8350 simply because the PS4 will have an AMD 8 core cpu, and games will probably be optimized to work on that architecture. The 8350 has 8 integer clusters, which classifies it as an 8 core, however it doesn't necessarily have 8 cores because the level 2 cache is shared. It's like hyperthreading but better.

WOW! Wait, so your saying that my cpu oc to 4.7 would out-do some of the XEON E5s and OPTERON 6000 series! AS well as all of the I7's?!?!?!?

It will out-perform those on that benchmark site but that doesn't mean that it will in real applications. I have an fx 8320 that scores around 8200 on that site, overclocked to 4.2ghz it scores around 9400. Sometimes overclocking can reduce your gaming performance and I'm not really sure why.

Isn't that because they miss the cached instructions every now and then or something? Not completely sure either but I read that somewhere.

Back on topic anyways, yeah the 8350 is a fantastic CPU in contrast to some of the Intel lovers' opinions. I own one and honestly can't complain even with it at stock temperatures. I would recommend it anyway.

I heard there were problems with the stepping on the Zambezi cpu's but I thought they fixed it with vishera.
