The the FX-6300 still the go-to CPU for highest price/performance? If not, what is the new choice?
Upcoming smartphones SoC's are already as powerful as that think, let it die already, holy hell.
I cannot understand why anyone would waste your own money on such a piece of shit. You don't have the money for something better? Then save up some more.
FX 6300 is a solid price/perf CPU, Microcenter has dropped it down below $100 on a few occasions. They've also dropped the FX 8350 down to $130 a couple times.
NH D14/15 is plenty.
Also ignore obvious shitposters.
Not OP, but I'm waiting for a good DDR4 solution from AMD before I do a complete system upgrade. Currently using a Phenom II x4 980 which doesn't cut it for modern games anymore. I got it a few years ago when I needed high single-core performance.
lol mainstream laptop cpus aren't even really there yet dont understand how an ARM CPU is comparable anyways
i bought the fx-6300 for $85 like a month ago and i dont really regret it... who cares it's cheap as hell and it was an upgrade from what i had before
Sometimes when i come across one of these threads on g, i wonder if there are diffrences between hardware, based on the country you life at.
No one in german, NO ONE, would tell someone
>go and get a amd cpu, its a good choice in terms of price/perfomance ratio.
even the reviews from good sources say that.
The Fx 6300 scores for about 2200 on the singlecore score, which is pretty much what a snapdragon unreleased, unoptimized Snapdragon 820 gets.
8227 on the Multiscore beats it tho, but the Samsungs Exynos 8890 (again, not even released and probably not even in it' final state) scores for 6k.
Give at another year and we'll slowly catch up to the 8350 .
That's because their current state of CPU's is disastrous and nobody with a head on their shoulders should ever buy a CPU that was released in 2012 and was already shit performance wise back then.
It's either go intel or at least wait for AMD to trow their new CPU on the market.
I have an FX6300 in my build, with a Hyper Evo 212 heatsync.
Never had a problem with overheating, case temps are always good.
Every time I try to overclock eventually I bluescreen and BIOS resets to default clock settings.
I plan to upgrade to an FX-8370 eventually, but for now the FX-6300 is sufficient.
A I3-6100 is still a better choice. DDR4 support, new socket and the entire tech behind it is not five years old.
I only buy AMD when it comes to GPU's but their CPU's are just garbage nowadays.
about to order pic related. is there a superior intel cpu and motherboard i could replace these with for the same price? Why does amd get so much hate?
>tfw a 3258 still has better single core perf per dollar than pretty much anything else out there.
>tfw intel is pushing microsoft to update the microcode on the remaining 3258s so they won't overclock
>why does AMD get so much hate
they're stupidly inefficient and unless you plan on using programs that take advantage of 6-8 cores, it's a waste of your money. this is why you see poor multi-media guys buy AMD. it's worth it for them because they need the fastest chip with the most cores for the least amount of dosh. most software, and especially vidya, take zero advantage of more than 4 cores
Because it's better at synthetic multi core benchmarks.
Downside is that two fast as shit cores are better than 8 slowpoke ones for most of the shit consumers do.
See web browsing, gaming, office shit and whatnot.
wtf are you talking about nerd? you can get a 1151 board for $50 just like everything else. oooo ram is $10 more oh my god!
stop being ridiculous. You're paying for the fact that it's new hardware that won't be obsolete for a while.
The FX-6300 is still surperior to any Skylake for the sole reason that it doesn't have NSA backdoors and you can still install Windows 7 without a PS/2 keyboard.
If you try to install Windows 7 on a Skylake then none of the USB ports work.
Do you literally believe everything you read in clickbait articles? New CPUs do not and will not require windows 10.
Another dumbass quoting misinformation. Is this really what we have to deal with on /g/ now?
Ran one for a long time without a hitch, switched to an i7 4790k and the performance difference is minimal.
In your position though, just bide your time, save some more money and get Zen when that drops at least I won't be about 3 years old before it gets switched on.
I'm running mine on a 3+1 VRM motherboard with a 212 Evo running 4.5GHz with some supposedly high as shit voltage, it's fully stable and been like this for over a year now. Runs fine and does everything I need it to do.
Skylake, Zen, and beyond will run W7 just fine you autists. The point of the Microsoft announcement was that if newer architectures developed new power states (which honestly are all just gonna be sleep states) they wouldn't bring it to 8.1 and earlier.
>guy who has fx-9590 saying how good it is suddenly has post deleted
something funny is going on ITT anons
Nobody has been able to answer my question to date so I'll just ask it here in hopes of an answer
I have FX-4350 processor. I want better frames in CSGO and other games. Should I buy a FX-8320 or 8350 (which is just a faster 8320, but overclocking sounds spooky so I'd just pay more if I have to like the moron I am)?
Well you just made it easier.
All you'll be doing is adding more of the same cores. Those games do not benefit from having more cores than what you already have.
Now, given that information, do you think one of those CPUs will give you an appreciable frame rate increase?
I just want to build another PC. I don't want to use this Thinkpad R61 with a C2D T7300 and 2GB of ram any longer.
pic related. I have a keyboard/mouse and 15" lcd already. I would love to get some 1080p 21" and a mechanical keyboard/new mouse but I'd rather get the tower out of the way... or am I wrong? It seems like peripherals, except for monitors, don't go down in price.
god dammit i forgot to include the picture
I also have a spare HDD
Why yes, I do like to live dangerously.
Put the entire $500 into a keyboard, mouse, monitors. Save up another $800 only for the tower.
By the time you get that other $800, components went down in price. That doesn't really happen with keyboards or mice. It does with monitors but not as quickly.
hey guys, I have a full tower i7 930 build and want to switch to mini itx. Thinking about getting a used newer gen i5 or an alternative similar in power to the cpu i have. what would you recommend?
Would you look at that, I have such a pic.
But AMD motherboards are a lot cheaper than Intel boards as a whole. A high end AMD board isn't any more expensive than a pleb tier Intel one. You're still in the green on price / performance with a FX-9XXX and a high end mobo.
proof that AMD FX-9590 is god-tier
literally no reason to care about single thread unless you're a manchild playing with gaymen
The reason why the 9590 is 220w is because its just an overclocked 8350 - that is all there is to it. The only difference between getting a slower chip and doing it yourself (vs straight up buying a 9590) is a 9590 is guaranteed to run at 5ghz. Overclocking the slower chips runs into silicon lottery territory.
There is nothing inherently special about the 9590.
I upgraded from an i7 950 at 4ghz to an i7 6700k. The difference is night and day. Every thing from web browsing to gaming is much faster. Upgrade and don't look back. Alot of people shitposting about skylake are just too poor to own one.
You're full of shit. It's absolutely impossible to notice the difference in fucking web browsing. My main system is an overclocked 4790K, but I also use a Phenom II system regularly and there's absolutely no fucking difference between the two for basic desktop use, and that's a less powerful CPU than an i7 950.
Let me guess, you also switched to an SSD with your new build and are too thick to realize that it's that which makes the difference on the desktop?
Be careful about buying Intel products. Their biggest investors are from Israel, who created and funded the liberal conspiracy. You are assisting white genocide by buying their products.
