Thread: Is AMD still an option ?

  1. #1

    Default Is AMD still an option ?

    hello everyone.just opened an account in banglaGamer, so this is my first post.

    As all know, AMD has long been preferred by PC builders as an affordable alternative processing power over intel. that being said this is also known to all that how intel's architecture evolved over AMD in the past few years and how they gradually increased the performance gap with AMD that cant simply be encountered with extra cores and unrestricted overclocking (not even by modular approach as it seems....).

    personally i haven't used an AMD for a long time.the last AMD i used was a mobile athlon64 processor from 2003-04.So obviously i didnt experience AMD's once champ processors like phenom2 series. now as the market is flooded with FX, APUs, intel sandy bridge and ivy bridge, they are practically extinct.I will soon be building a complete new PC for a friend of mine(and later for me) and he has a budget of ~10,000/= for processor. his option for this budget can be
    i3 3220
    i3 2120
    fx 4100
    APU
    Phenom 2 x4(if it can still be found)
    now i know gaming experience doesnt change much from 2 cores to 4 cores(most of them) but in multi tasking and multi threading it still matters a lot and pehnom 2 x4 is the only true quad core among them.
    now my question is standing in 2013 is it still a viable option to go for a phenom2 x4 given their age and if they are still available in bd, where can i find them and in what price?

    If you get an APU, then its both good CPU and GPU together in 10-12K. its worth it for low-end budget

    If he is a gamer, go for i3 3220. In gaming, it is better than ANYTHING AMD has to offer yet.

    @Trave160 :but APUs are so weak as processors arent they?besides i think i can manage him a standard discrete GPU...

    @Vanguard :my friend is not much of a gamer,he would want many cores if possible for other threaded apps.what i'm asking is, can a x4(having 4 actual cores) take much advantage of multi threaded apps that it would out perform 2 cores of i3 3220? i know in single threaded apps it's no match, but are individual ivy bridge cores so powerful that it would be equivalent to 2 full cores of Phenom 2s making it absolutely obsolete?
    also if i have a good GPU would the difference be notable between ivy bridge and x4 while gaming?

    There still an option available and that is fx 6100. .same price ratio with i3 3220 but better or same performer and you can see this at any benchmark site but budget matters first, if your friend has a budget of 15k or more then there is no other options than i5

    yuup it is... for low end systems.APU is a very good choice for low end systems.it also burns low power, & FX series is actually powerful, the problem is windows cant slice threads & manage them according to FX series's requirement(or should i say betterment).

    FX doesn't have 4 real cores by the way. AMD is not an option on the processor side of things but the fx6100 is decent for the money.

    Actually with newer games you do need more than 2 cores, but an i3 will beat out an x4. I would not get an x4 especially since piledriver right now is a better alternative since it oc's better.


    That being said piledriver is a decent cpu for gaming, its just that intel alternatives are better due to a higher ipc, not to mention they run cooler too. If you can get an FX6xxx get that and get a decent board with which you can oc and that way you will net better performance than the intel i3's. This is if your budget permits.
    FTW!!!!!!!!!!

    AMD's higher power consumption will force you to go for a better power supply if you are going to use a discrete Graphics Card, and I do believe someone who has only a budget of 10K for just the processor can afford the luxury to spend on a Overclock capable motherboard or aftermarket coolers or a beefy power supply, on the other hand you can pair a 3rd Gen Core i3 with a motherboard like H61 which can be had starting from 3,800/= to 4,500/= so the choice is yours, and more core doesn't necessarily guarantees you better performance in multitasking or multithreaded tasks, the benchmarks and numbers speaks for it.

    Amd is an option, but not for hardcore gaming. But if its paired with an amd gpu, it runs quite well though..

    Today I saw AMD FX-8350 at UCC. This is the Vishera series, the lastest and something comparable to SB and IVB. The AMD FX 6300 is more than perfect for budget gamers, IMO, no offence to Intel fanboys.

    I hope AMD will work the kinks out, for the consumers' sake.

    I said no offence to Intel fanboys. Ok. Maybe I read some bias review. Most reviews I read praised the 6300 for actually being good. And still I am getting one. Its cheap, the mobo's are cheap and unlocked multiplier. The cheapest Intel with unlocked multiplier is 2500K. (not considering other gens)

    Only reason sites praise it is because it's cheap. Absolutely nothing more than that.

    I don't see why anyone has to be an Intel fanboy, heck if anyone at this point even remotely hints at AMD having better processors than Intel, then that person is the fanboy.

    If you are calling me a fanboy then I have nothing to say, since I myself have used Core i5 750 and still using intel. The bulldozer were no where near comparable to Intel. However, the Vishera chips are. Its not like they are almost equally priced. Performance is lower and so is price. Since I have to buy stuff from my own money from now on, I can only afford AMD.
