My fx 8350 is going strong. Piledriver was ok for the time, intel was obviously better but in retrospect piledriver is probably better now than the comparable intel chip with all their jewish backdoor patches.

i've upgraded from 8350 to 1700 and the improvement is massive. i can comfortably play cemu/rpcs3 now, all of my VR tracking issues are gone, VR vidya now has lots of cpu left so it doesn't have to fight with tracking systems, computer works way smoother in daily tasks. One day you'll upgrade, then you'll see.

>no reason to upgrade
feels valid only because you're scaling your expectations down to what you have

that being said, visheras were a solid choice for the time. both 8320 and 6300 were great in their price ranges

>all of my VR tracking issues are gone
On what platform? My rift shits the bed occasionally but that has more to do with the ridiculous USB requirements. VR is literally the only thing that matters to me anymore for hardware intensive applications and no headset is a good enough to be worth upgrading to. I had hopes for a crossover system with the HP reverb and index controllers but both failed spectacularly due to shitty manufacturing.

Looks like I'll be sticking with the piledriver for another couple of years unless a new headset thats better than 1600x1400 per eye shit is released.

>> No.71947170

On rift, except i had this pants on head retarded setup with two different tracking systems and many, many cameras. One camera was for rift DK2, four other usb2.0 cameras were used for PS move controllers i've been using for my hands. After CPU upgrade my hands got much, much smoother, headset stopped occasionally jumping off the place and doing this irritating thing where it loses positional tracking and gets stuck in a single place forever.

I think you'd benefit from CPU, but if your issues are USB-related, have you tried pci-e usb cards? Those things save my life now that i'm using CV1 (with two rift cameras) and my old ps move system for body tracking. Got two of those, each card can easily handle two cameras at once, and then i'm also having mobo ports for rest of the stuff.

>> No.71947189

I'm still using an 8350 in my main machine. I have friends with Intel processors of the same age and they're all now buying into Ryzen, yet my 8350 just keeps going.

In retrospect I think AMD was right even if it didn't seem like it at the time. The extra cores have kept Bulldozer/Piledriver relevant for longer than Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge. They still have some advantages over current processors like being the last non-botnet mainstream CPU, can run win7 and aren't badly impacted by security flaws. With more programs being optimised for multicore, maybe they'll age gracefully and keep going for few years longer. People still keep buying them, even though a Ryzen 3 is more powerful.

Ryzen had a 40-60% performance per clock increase, while only losing 10-15% clock speeds. A Ryzen quad core with SMT is very nearly as fast as the 8350 in multithreaded integer workloads, much faster in FP workloads, draws less power and is much faster than it in single threaded workloads.

>Core M is the Atom successor.
It isn't. It's the successor of CULV CPU's like C2D SU9300 which were basically undervolted mobile chips with lower frequences, not cut down shit like Atom.

>And the latest dual core mobile i3 gas basically the same multi core performance as this FX.
Sounds rather unlikely yo.

That's just not the case. Core M is usually used for premium laptops upwards of 800 bucks, just like CULV CPUs before. Atoms are for sub 400 bucks trash and perform noticeably worse.

>They are garbage compared to actual Core i.
For heavy workloads since they can't keep up the turbo for long, since most are used in passively cooled devices. For normal stuff you won't notice the difference since it's basically the same CPU just undervolted.
