As the title says I'm wondering which processor that would be most "safe" for future gaming and some streaming? And no, wont get an I5 cause I beliveve the future will be based around 8 cores for gaming atleast.
With the Xbox One and PS4 both being 8core, AMDs CPU doesnt look that bad for the future, sure they are behind right now in most stuff cause everything is made for 4 cores or less, but in 1-2 years this could change.
I made the mistake of buying a 2 core processor last time, pretty much everyone said "no nothing uses 4 cores core2duo is awesome!", about a year or so after everything was optimized for sandy bridge and the quad cores... bear in mind this was in late 2008 when I bought the core2duo but still, dont want to repeat the mistake again, want something great for the next 4-5 years now.
Ok the question below:
I know that the I7 is better in everything right now, thats why it costs much more, the question is: will it still be ahead of the FX-8350 if games/programs are optimzed for 8 cores? If the FX-8350 gets the best case scenario, a program/game that uses all 8 cores, is it ahead or behind the 4770K?
