I recently was looking at different CPUs and how many people favor Intel for their great architecture and speed (which they do have the edge in). However, if you are considering buying an Intel over an AMD and you want to save money. Watch this link:
This video shows how a 3770k and an FX-8350 match up. Generally, people compare the 8350 with a 3570k, but the 3770k and the 8350 were nearly the same during these tests. This sort of sums up why my final decision will be AMD.
For $110 cheaper, you can get an AMD that runs a couple FPS slower (and in some cases faster) and render just slightly slower.
I'd rather devote this money to an SSD, or a better graphics card.
What are your opinions? Intel makes GREAT processors, but for $110 more and comparable to an 8350, I don't see why one would. But in cases of spending $1000 on an Intel Extreme, they are much better than the FX-9590s (look them up if you don't know about them. They produce lots of heat, too.).
Pros of Intel 3770K:
-Slightly faster in most cases.
Pros of AMD FX-8350:
-8 cores (more demanding games are starting to show their liking to this)
What are your opinions? I guess it all depends on budget and priorities. Just wanted to shine some light if anybody is having trouble with this.
