are you Overclocked? I have the 8350 oc to 4.7 and I saw just a few increase of fps. Handbrake became a few mins faster, which is really why I went for the 8350.

>> No.52103009

They haven't made anything worthwhile since the FX-8350, which was released in 2012. Today you can get an i5 at the same price with the same overall performance, double the single thread performance, half the power usage, and half the heat production compared to that chip.

The Zen-based chips really need to compete with Skylake or the entire x86 industry is dead. We can't trust Intel to continue on fairly, they're going to give 2% performance gains for double the price from now on. In 5 years, someone will make an ARM chip that will be a suitable desktop chip and that will be the end of it.

I don't know... With a 1100T I could've keeped my old motherboard and saved some cash. The performance gain is not worth the upgrade IMO.

It's not a problem.

>> No.52103993


>> No.52104065

970 chipset is garbage for FX 8 cores, it should really be on a 990fx chipset with a decent 6+ power phases for the CPU alone and a decent VRM cooling solution.

Have you tried fixing a small fan above the VRM heatsinks? I have the same struggles with mt 8320 on a asus m5a99fx (currently at 4.2 ghz and power saving features enabled. Uses 1.4 ghz on idle/ light use), the socket heats up MUCH faster than the chip itself (125W TDP will do that...)

>> No.52104107

That's still FX-8350 speed, so bretty gud

The only thing I've found the 8350 to be worthless with is emulating newer games. It's a beast for encoding video, still good for modern PC games, more than fast enough for any casual desktop use. Its only problem is that it produces a shitload of heat.

>> No.52104152

But I have.

>> No.52104162

Welp, I brought this motherboard just because it has a 8+2 power phase design and I was on a budget.

Never tried that. I have noticed it get pretty hot. But... I kinda of need a silent build, so attaching a small fan is not viable for me.

>> No.52104258

>implying that skymeme is better than haslel

Did you even look at benchmarks? All new i5s lose to their haswell equivalents because they're clocked way lower.

4460 (3.4ghz on all cores) vs i5-6400(3 GHz on all cores). Same for 4590 vs 6500 and 4690 vs 6600.

Only skylake k CPUs are worth considering or if you really need the features of the new chipsets

>> No.52104314

Welp, my system is all weird.

Brought four sticks of 4GB 1866Mhz HyperX RAM just to found out my CPU can't handle 4x1866Mhz sticks. So I run them all at 1600Mhz with smaller timings and stuff.

Nobody puts their CPU on heavy load (on all cores) 24-7-365 so power consumption between intel and AMD is negligible. Especially between a haswell i3 and an X4 860K.

Is there tangible difference between a A6-7400k and a pentium g3258? I know the pentium is better in general technically, but would a fairly clueless user like my dad be able to discern a difference just browsing, emailing, and watching youtube in linux? The AMD is a fair bit cheaper and if it can suffice him going forward, I'll probably buy that instead.

>> No.52106207

You should wait for zen but if you need the PC built that bad right now then go with AMD. Pentium is actually dogshit since it only has two threads not just in video games but in many programs as well.

The A6 is also dogshit since it only gives you two threads to work with so I recommend getting an A8-7600 at least (~$80).

You cucks must have forgotten 2002 and 2003 when Intel could only achieve performance with 3 GHz chips that AMD was managing with 2.1 GHz chips. Also, if it wasn't for AMD releasing the first x86-based 64-bit processor, Intel wouldn't even be at where they are today. That was a huge fucking milestone right there, for you plebs that are actually old enough to remember that far back.

AMD wanted to try something new and go with a modulated architecture and exhausted all attempts in making it competitive. They fell short, and with Zen they are going back to a traditional multi-core structure like they ran back in the day.

Unfortunately, with their attempts at modulation, everyone has forgotten how fierce AMD was back in the late 90's and early 00's. Trust me, it will return. You idiots who have forgotten what AMD is capable of when they set their mind right is going to be disappointed next year when the first versions of the Zen CPU is released.

Intel has done all they know to do. They have been at a stalemate with their processors for the past 5 years now. All they can do is sit back and wait for other companies to do something new to give them ideas to evolve their technology. Intel never has been known for being revolutionary. They've always just sat back and when something good was introduced, they know how to take that and build upon it.

I predict by 2018 we will see a significant improvement in desktop CPU's, but that's not going to happen until AMD brings something new to the table to get Intel thinking.

You people think I'm bullshitting or probably think I'm some AMD fanboy. But I've used both AMD and Intel CPU's and I've been in this business since 1997. I've seen the rise and fall of both companies. They both have released masterpieces and garbage.
