Ouch.... Definatelly getting their foot in there with the i7's and probably beating a good amount of them out at that level... But.... Ouch, $800 is a lot of dosh for one part.

You can OC a FX-8350 to 5GHz with water and for under $300 that is cheaper than a 3770k and you are boosting 1.1GHz per core '8', i been using the 8350 for a while and its a great CPU for everything it goes toe to toe with the i7 for most things and it beats the i5 for gaming, you can't go wrong with that CPU its cheap $185.99 and you can make it faster than a 3770k if you buy a nice water system and OC.

The FX-8350 is a great processor. I've had hands on experience with both the 8350 and the 3770K... at stock clocks there is almost no difference but at 4.5GHz(Air only) the 3770k has a very slight advantage amounting to only 3-7 FPS in BF3(tested with a 680). All in all I would choose the 8350 because the price/performance ratio though I would push for the more higher end intels if your not on a budget. The 8350 performs well for gaming which is all that really matters unless you benchmark.

There's only a very small segment of pc users that want to deal with the headaches and cost of a fully cooled water system. So I wouldn't use that as a baseline comparison.

If you were too pay a customized pc shop to build you water cooling, it's about $1000 more expensive for that feature (probably half that if you do it yourself). Spendy.

looks like AMD is putting consoles money into use, good for them.

I don't know... $800 for a AMD cpu. I own the 8350 but if I were to dish out that much money I would just go all the way instead of trying to cheapen out.

This should of been in the ps4 lol

cayleee1203d ago

Would have caused a melt down. There is a reason PS4 is a featuring a CPU running at 2ghz.

And ps4 is using a cooler running laptop version of a cpu. No skinny console could handle the heat of a high end desktop cpu.
