Intel & AMD  (Source:
It has been reported that AMD processors and FX 8350 is the best. But is it best choice, 8 Cores for gaming?

Or quad or hexa core is good choice for just gaming? Then the final question will be, can I afford this processor.  For the price point AMD has chips that perform good, but in some games AMD FX processors are somewhat behind the current Haswell & Skylake chips.


Also, on other games there is almost zero difference in performance between Skylake i5/i7 chips and the FX chips in games such as Titanfall 2 (" rel="nofollow) and Battlefield 1 (" rel="nofollow).

By comparison still the i5 3570 has an edge over the FX8350 gaming while the i7 of and on performs better in some games. And the i5/i7 is also more expensive than AMD’s FX 8350. But if you choose AMD, then go with FX8350 with base clock of 4Ghz, which is already unlocked and overclockable.


The decision is yours, but if you want Intel products, then your best choice will be i5 3570K that has digital audiotape of 3.4Ghz. This version will allow you to overclock in a few years to help keep up.

Both of these will last a while in gaming and it will take a several years before the 3570 and 8350 become ready for high-end graphic cards.


But AMD has 8 core processor, and 8 MB L2cache, if price does not matter. In reality many games don’t utilize more than 2cores, a few will use 4. The 8 cores on the AMD CPU goes to waste in gaming. Where for hardcore movie editing, etc. the 8 cores will dominate the i5 even the i7 steps in with a higher price.
