That's the OPPOSITE of how it works. CPU load stays pretty much constant regardless of what settings you run the game at. Most games will run pretty much identically on ultra settings as long as you have a relatively modern 4c/8t or better CPU unless you also have a 1070 or better, because GPU will be the bottleneck.

8350, and other Piledriver 8000s were/are comfy as fuck.
Was it the best performing processor? No. But you didn't buy it for that.
I bought the 8350 because I knew it would provide ENOUGH performance for 5+ years without breaking the bank.
Today, you can still run the 8350 and get adequate gaming performance AND application performance where equivalently priced Intel processors, which were superior then, but practically unusable now.
AMD saw that the future was multithreading and increased core counts. They made a CPU to match it. Sure, it had compromises, they weren't "full" cores, but they were able to create an amazing price-to-longevity ratio.
And people who bought the 8350 for that price-to-longevity have had their investment pay off.
Sure, it's probably bottle necking medium-tier GPUs now, but it's fine and dandy if you're doing 1080p.

I ended up selling my old 8350 PC for the price I paid for it (thanks GPU prices! Thanks Fortnite!) last year to pay rent in between jobs. It still had hella life in it.

For single core. 8350 wins out multicore.
> 2500k is still decent for gaming
And pucker your butthole and hope no background tasks interfere. It was nice not having to close all other apps to play a game.
Also, FX 8350 shows its superiority when you use DX12 or Vulcan.
FX8350 and 2500K are about equal gaming wise using DX11.
Especially look at shit like BF1, where with DX12, the 6300 competes with the 2500k (where the 6300 was nearly half the price of the 2500k).
I admit -- BF1 is an extreme example, as it is particularly good at utilizing cores. But it demonstrates that the 8350 is taking the cake in modern games and will continue to do so.

I figure you have two more years to hold onto the 8350 unless you buy a >60hz or >1080p monitor.

8350 was $20 cheaper than 2500k. Sure, $20 might not sound a lot, but get $20 cheaper RAM, $20 cheaper PSU, $20 cheaper GPU, $20 cheaper mobo with it, and your PC costs $100 less.
That easily makes the difference between "in my budget" and not.
So when I was deliberating, the 8350 was one of several compromises between price and performance I made.
So it was 2500k with superior single core performance, or 8350 with superior multicore performance.
So when the 8350 went on sale (and the Intel didn't), I snagged it. $50 cheaper than the 2500k at the end of the day.
And seeing as I'm still getting [email protected] on high-to-ultra settings in all but the most recent of games after one GPU upgrade, I feel pretty good about my purchase.

There's two integer cores, but just one FPU per cluster/module, so each core is just a integer + a shared FPU, that's why it had a poor IPC and decent multicore performance. In the end of the day it was just a "smart" way AMD found to save costs, instead of making "full sized" cores, they just shoved two integers in a module. It didn't end well for them.

I'm aware. I followed the whole BD family pretty closely, going back to either 2008 or 2009 when AMD first teased it, and it was a very different beast then.
It makes sense for die area and transistor count. Their concept was solid, but execution was flawed for a few different reasons. Global Foundries running IBM's 32nm PD-SOI node took forever to ramp up, leakage was higher than anticipated, and it took them years to tame it. If they had electrostatics like the FX 8370e at launch then it wouldn't have been so terrible. If it was a 3ALU wide int core instead of a 2 wide IPC could have been substantially higher from the get go. It was only cut down due to power and thermals on 32nm.

Yes. Only the FPU's FMACs are shared between the int cores so they have limited throughput, but for all intents and purposes each module has two dedicated hardware threads with consistent and predictable throughput.

>> No.68304872

Yes, but it would perform like shit because the shared FPU and L2. Interesting enough, some BIOS had an option that made a 8 core FX become a 4 core with one FPU each (one core per CU), which increased the IPC.

What's cool about FX also is if you have a board that can do one core per module, and clock those bitches up to 4.5 which is easy, and the tdp won't be that high, it performs faster than a 2.8GHz lynnfield i7 with only 4 threads and a lower tdp than that CPU.

One thing I really liked the Sabertooth boards, and ram for it is super fucking cheap. I think it was like, $100 for the board, $75 for the CPU, $40~ for 32gb of low profile ram and it doesn't bottleneck my gpus, so good enough.

Nah, that's not it. The "shared" FPU is only shared for 256-byte FPs. For 128-byte ones it can do two at a time. Plus FP math is not that common so it's a reasonable compromise.
The real problem was the decode/dispatch unit which had to alternate between the integer units. This was fixed in steamroller and excavator, as you can see from your own picture. It's a real shame FX never moved past Piledriver, because the fixes that went into the arch caused double-digit performance improvements for their APUs.

That thing was trash, one day you anons just have to accept it's bad and you made a bad purchase instead of denying the truth.
On the bright side most of you are more mature now, maybe you learned to check benchmarks and do some product research before wasting your money and even if you're all still stuck to blind brand loyalty at least AMD has good performers in this gen so you will all be fine if you're still retarded and can't read benchmark charts.

All these AMDrones posting cope to try and justify buying shitdozer. You guys do realize ZEN is out now? You don't have to keep pretending the last gen was actually good.

I had q6600 for years and it was fine. 'Dozer had similar IPC and twice the core count, it would be fine. Not spectacular, but fine.

Its like Intel to day. Before ZEN Intel was the king and whatnot, now all they can do is to factory OC their stuff and keep the performance crown at the price of the power consumption.

I replaced the c2q with Haslel HEDT, btw.

>Haslel HEDT
I regret not building an X99 rig back in 14 cause it's still good as hell

>> No.68310512

The based dozer only has the ipc of a 65nm core 2 chip when one of the cores in each module is used, when both cores are sharing resources, the IPC is 20% worse.

I still like the FX8350 because scoring 700+ points on cinebench for less than an i5 is fucking cool.

It's sad that even /g/ has succumbed to this over-dramatic consumer schizo faggotry. Is this the same board who used to be pragmatic enough to admit that 99% of day-to-day average user scenarios don't require anything stronger than a Core Duo ?

If you live in a sweltering shithole get decent cooling shitdicks otherwise I don't understand where theses memes are from. Bulldozer is fine. It was never amazing, who cares? Performance for performance's sake is retarded. For the price it's great.

"Enthusiast" is a nice way of saying "spend happy imbecile". If you have workstation-grade hardware but all you do is play vidya and shitpost you are a sad pathetic wretch, barely losing in the Moron Olympiad to the cable balancing, tube polishing, knob fondling Audiophools.
