AMD A6 5400k Or Intel Core i3 3220 is Better

May i have to go with Intel Core i3 3220 Or may i have to go with AMD A6 5400k
34 answers Last reply
More about amd 5400k intel core 3220
  1. Will the i3 have a dedicated GPU to go with it?

    What're the uses?
  2. If you don't want to buy a GPU then go to 5400k. AMD cpus has a good integrated GPU than an intel CPU.

    but if you will buy some GPU for at least gt 630 or gt 640 better. just go with i3-3220 or 3210.

    Better to have a GPU.

    Mostly i am using for programing , high module d software like Autocad 2012,2013 etc and secondly for gaming
    I don't want to buy graphics card

    Why not get an A10-5800K? They're about the same price as an i3-3220 while providing far superior graphical power for your gaming and enough power for autocad and programming. A superior choice to the i3 if you are not buying a dedicated GPU.

    A10-5800K is what you want, has APU architecture and can run BF3 i think its an integrated HD7660 but i could be wrong. You wont need to buy a GPU (im sure of that though).
    With the i3 you will depending on the motherboard you get for it.

    Not exactly; the 3220 comes with an IGP, but its nothing in comparison to the 7660D.

    Really? I hadn't known. Yeah, I guess the OP is really limited with the 3220.

    its usually a bios issue he needs the A10-5800k

    Bro tell me GPU are dependant on MOBO's or on processors ?all Fm2 boards are nearly shared memory with 2 gb and will you suggest any FM2 mobo for amd A65400k or A6 6400k

    FM chips are APU that means accelerated processing unit and the gpu and cpu are combined and gather video ram from the actual ram on the board (sort of best i can do in a simple sentence)

    Get an A10 5700k or 5800k and more ram rather than an i3 + gpu

    Yes. He was right. But I would rather trust Intel than an AMD processors.

    Nowadays. Games usually use 4 cores (to have a better experience).

    Try to get 4 cores.
  13. If not buying a dedicated GPU, as others have said, get the A10 5800k. Its graphics is superior to that of an i3.

    Bro what is about AMD A8-5500 APU (3.2/3.7Ghz, 65W, 4MB total dedicated L2 cache, socket FM2) power efficient and low price Should i go with it ?

    Bro most of this thread persons suggested to go with quad core A10 but it is out of my pocket and i need more 2500 Rs for extra PSU .
    My point is should i purchase the AMD A8-5500 APU (3.2/3.7Ghz, 65W, 4MB total dedicated L2 cache, socket FM2)
    it is cheap in price and good in performance or Upcomming dual core A6 6400k higher graphixed APU

    yup and hat about A 6 6400k dual core ? high graphics and more power main issue is the money my friend and is it powerfull secondly if i chose quad core it will eat more power newegg.com PSU selection gave power 260W recomandded PSU while dual core/tripple core give only 205W

    Very little is really known about Richland, so I cant say much.

    260W and 205W are very close to eachother. You usually cant get a quality PSU under 400W anyways, so dont worry about the wattage at that point.

    I cannot reccomend that PSU.

    It is both reliable and power efficient, so it is worth the extra money.

    The iBall is not known to be reliable, that is why I do not reccomend it.

    but bro WD said that 2 tb consumes only 5 W for read and Write and normal use it takes 2W so tell me A6 6400k = FM2+ 2.160 TB is good working using pure 450w VIP PSU or I ball PSU and secondly i am not going for higher games so no other issue

    Dont worry about hard drives consuming much power.

    Dont go with a generic brand PSU like those.

    Bro really tell me whats actually will problem persists or not with these brands ? and VIP 500W are i think good choice because they give nearly 350W-400W pure output and thats i think enough since newegg.com gave 241W total power utilization so good to choose or not for normal use not heavy use

    The problem is that they will explode. They're not made by a reputable company. I am not joking.

    Like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Em4PLzv2zSE

    Boom. Dead power supply and potentially several other parts due to oversurging at death.
  31. Wattage doesn't equal quality. Also many poor quality PSU makers flat out lie about how much wattage their PSU's can actually do. Honestly, I wouldn't buy even a Coolermaster PSU most of the time. They are very hit and miss on the quality. Seasonic, Corsair, PC Power & Cooling, and Rosewill Capstones are much better quality.

    I was going to reccomend a more quality PSU, but it wouldve come out to be 4x+ as much. The CoolerMaster should do fine.
