AMD FX 8350 vs Intel Core I5 3470 IvyBridge and Core i5 2500k SandyBridge

For many of you, there is one question which hasn't been answered yet or has been answered in wrong and not trustworthy ways. And the question is? Is Core i5 IvyBridge really that good? Is it more capable for any task than any AMD processor or is it even equalized to Core i7. In today's test we gonna run some tests on three processors: AMD FX8350, Intel Core i5 2500k and Intel Core i5 3470.

 

Why not 3570k? Because it performs more like i7 than i5. I wont be wasting our time by writing about architecture, cores etc. It was all written before and more than 90% of you doesn't care about it. That's why I will do tests and tests only.

 

Lets burn some tyres(transistors:)

See for yourself, Ivy is a King without a doubt but it's for you to decide which one to choose. My personal opinion is that there is no logical need to buy AMD unless you are into 3D content creating and if u r into some serious 3D you will probably choose Core i7.
