  1. Depends on what codec you plan on using for rendering.

    If you are talking about DivX, then Intel gives better performance. Using the x.264 codec the i7-3770k performs better on the 1st pass, but the FX-8350 performances better on the 2nd pass. For WMV formats, Intel gives better performance.

    I generally prefer Intel CPUs because they have overall better performance and consumes less power. However, they do cost a bit more. I believe under intensive CPU tasks (like video encoding) the FX consumes around 90w - 100w more power.
  2. The i7 3770k is better than the fx 8350, but not that much. If you are looking for a cheaper cpu that will run just as fast, and render nearly at the same speeds, I would go for the fx 8350, as it is nearly $130 less than the i7 3770k. But if you do not have a budget and want the better one, go ahead and buy the i7. They are both amazing CPUs to have.
