Hyperthreading nothing much when came to CFD analysis like ansys....
I have an i5-3360m/amd 7570m laptop. The 7570m crushes the HD 4000. XD
cpuboss.com gargles the intel sac... you need to have true testers and everyday users do your ratings.... i dont mind either cpu company but i built a custom system with the amd fx-9370 and i have never seen an intel i7 handle work loads like this amd chip does... i dare you to find me a piece of software that will push this amd chip into turbo .... intel i7 turbos on start up, it turbos playing candy crush... give me a break!!!!
The Only reason to consider Intel processor is the built in GPU.
Well it could be more depending on where you live
naw mate the 4770k has its hyperthreading it suckerpunches all amd cpu's
You guys seriously need to actually put processors to processors for your matching up comprehension because the AMD FX 9370 and FX 9590 surely beats the INTEL I7 4770K in real world performance tests. get both and set them up with equivalent parts( motherboards, ram memory, ssd`s and the processors and good cooler systems and watch what happens. dont forget the os most be the same
one could give a damn to paying additional $20 a year lol
Overclock with watercooling is the same as with air cooling? Are you serious? This is not a bias review, this is a stupid ass review
Im sure people overclock the amd chips to 5ghz Ive found most cpu boss intel bias and many times intel chips win for the single core performance and the $20 a year power saving
You have it all wrong with the overclocking, you have not overvlovked the 9370, you have just stated its standard frequency.
