    Oh I read your signature, but still are you running the same clock on your GTX670? And isn't the 8350 higher clocked?

    Yeah, my signature is oudated :P

    I'll check, one mo.

    FX-6300 base clock: 3.5 GHz
    FX-6350 base clock: 4.0 GHz

    I'm bumping my CPU to 5 GHz and redo the benchmarks sometime next week, when my case arrives and I move the stuff around

    GTX 670 is at same clock speed

    If we juggle arround the variables this easily, i see no reason for this thread to continue because it loses all relevance/coherency. Either cooperate (1080P, benchmarkable games) or /endthread.

    It's not the same. The 6300 is a 3.5ghz 6core, and the 8350 is a 4.0ghz 8core. How is that even remotely the same.

    I already told you I would benchmark the games they played once I get my overclocking done.

    Why are you so angry? There's no point in 1080p when there's obviously more juice to be squeezed out when playing at 2560x1440.

    6300 and 8350 should perform the same, provided they're at the same clock speeds.

    I see nothing wrong with Inux's testing method. Logan and the guys at Tek Syndicate tested at 1440p as well, so it is entirely possible to compare Inux's benchmarks of the 6300 with their's of the 8350 and 3570K...

    I'm angry because of your total lack of scientific responsibility. The 6300 and 8350 do not perform the same at the same clockspeeds. That is only relevant in games where IPC matters. If you tested a multithreaded game, and you assumed the processor were the same, you'd get inconsistent results.
    Playing at 1440P only removes the issue further away from the CPU since you're only going to burden the GPU heavier. That's why you run CPU tests at 800x600. Granted those are synthetic benchmarks, and you should go for something more realistic like 1080p.
    But what's the relevance of your benchmarks when you're comparing them to the video, with a different processor that's not the same in any regard. At a resolution which can barely be compared to the rest of this forum due to the fact practicly noone owns a 1440p screen.

    He's not exactly trying to be scientific, is he? The entire point of the benchmarks that Tek Syndicate used were to show how the CPUs perform in real-world situations (like playing a game).

    If he were trying to do "true benchmarks", he would set it to 800x600, but he doesn't play games at that resolution, so it would hardly be real-world, would it?

    True, but you still need to set some groundrules. Otherwise it has no point. If you say "6300 is sort of the same as a 8350", nothing that comes after that is trustworthy. I'm sorry.

    Also, he's free to test it at 1440p, i never said he wasn't. But not supplying the 1080p results just makes it rather pointless since barely anyone can compare. Except with the video, in which i have reason to believe is biased. Or at least at some point been poorly excecuted. There is just no way a i5-3570K does 25fps and the 8350 does 57fps.

    If you want to see it from a scientific standpoint you can look at it like he is trying to compare his CPU to theirs and not trying to replicate/validate their results.
    If he is running the same GPU at same speeds and the games at the same settings you could argue that there is some value to his results from a CPU performance standpoint.

    Exactly. This is how I was looking at it (a comparison of the 6300 to the 8350 and the 3570K).

    I call BS on this video. Also, 25fps with a GTX670 on 1080p maxed FC3.... what. I have a 670 icm with a i5-760 (yes old) and i get 45-50fps maxed 1080p...
    This is pretty much what I wanted to post after reading that. Same specs as you, same results, vastly different from the results they got.

    I understand this also, but then why make the benchmarks into a format only comparable to an already questionable video. If the purpose of this thread is to find out wether the results are valid, you would need real-world results outside of this video. Like, among the majority of people with 1080p screens. Ill do some tests in a minute at 1080p.

    Judging from the numbers though, they cranked up the MSAA to a retarded level. Maybe the AMD somehow has a gain then, i don't know. Still really strange.

    I agree.

    The fact that their "findings" go against every other benchmark I've seen make me extremely skeptical.

    I watch Tek Syndicate for the Tek, but I think their testing methods are questionable at best (even as "real world" testing), even while watching the video I was raising an eyebrow, especially when they were going through the hardware they were using (ITX board for benchmarking?)...

    Also the lack of explanation makes me wary. Posting numbers at this stage is just not going to cut it. As you can judge from the reactions here people know better. Their target audience though are newbies who want to construct a gaming rig. And this is apparent from the obvlious reactions on youtube.

    Also their perspective on "real-world" is warped. Who is satisfied with 30fps avg (i can understand minimum, but not avg), and who would crank up the MSAA to 8x/16x to play at 15fps. No FXAA/MLAA/MSAA comparisson or elaboration what they used. Maybe thus explaining the difference. They overclocking is iffy, as posted before, 4.5ghz is hardly a high OC. And then compare it to a higher #core AMD at higher clockfrequency. I mean... wat. The sad truth probably is that they don't know it themselves, and the lack of explanation and/or justification for the results is due to their own ignorance on the matter.

    They simply crank up the settings, run the game on both platforms and dump the results. This is hardly the way to do it.

    avg/min/max all gone up ~25-30fps. Old game, not really reaching 99% load, totally reliant on the CPU performance IPC. Very noticeable CPU gain. So this differs highly per game, and achieved framerates. Upping the settings, and thus dropping the framerate to a hold, is NO viable way of testing CPU performance (metro2033 results). Yes, this particular game it doesn't matter, but in other games it matters 30fps. You can't just base your theory on a few games in which you get insane GPU bottlenecks and say the performance is the same and/or better.
    And i still call BS on their Far Cry 3 results.

    Even this super-elaborate test still has some inconsistancies, like f.e. you can't write down smoothness in fps, perhaps i can incorporate frametimes for that but cba. Go figure how much trouble i have with that video :P Look at this wall of text, and the only thing i achieved is prove how much importance IPC has in these 3 titles. Not even talking about how much they benefit from extra cores etc.

    Their results are highly suspicious. Especially since they took them in game. Why, well first they would have to record down the results at the same time under the same workload conditions. And also it's easy to manipulate in game results. Don't believe me, pick a game put it to max and then go stay facing a corner. Your FPS will go through the roof.

    To be fair, they mentioned doing the same thing with all runs. I.E play through the same scene again and again. Doesn't make them any more reliable though.

    I want to know why they are comparing a quad core to an 8 core, 8 core processors can't be utilized by almost every game out there. Using the AMD FX-4170 would have been a much better comparison.
    A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and don’t have one, you’ll probably never need one again.

    If it matters not, then why should it influence the results?
