idea Intel Core I3 3220 Vs AMD FX 6300


Hey !
My friend needed a help for buying a New Proccy so I though I should ask here for help

I'm just confused between "Intel Core i3 3220 and AMD FX 6300".
That for which one I should go for ??

After going through this :
Intel Core i3 3220 vs AMD FX 6300

Some points are very clear but in the end the Memory Graph giving me sort of Tension which shows that i3 won't run DDR3 ? (WHATT ?)
And AMD won't go up with 1333 and 1600Mhz Frequency ?

My friend is already having 1333Mhz RAM x8Gb.


Any input from Expert or Personal Exp. please ?
Please don't take a name just because you are a Fanboy
(Like for me Intel is the Best ! )



USAGE : The Computer's Core usage is Gaming in Medium or High Settings.
Its a Mid-range Gaming Pc not High one !
No Software's or anything else.

Re: Intel Core I3 3220 Vs AMD FX 6300

Obviously it's FX6300.

1. Fully unlocked. So, you get the full advantage of OCing, unlike the locked i3.

2. i3 is actually a dual core as you know (2 physical, 4 logical). Though it supports HT, most games don't use it, except a few (all games using Frostbite 2/3 engine, Civ5, etc).

FX6300 is actually a 3 core CPU, with 2 logical cores per module. It can be said same as HT, but AMD uses advanced tech than HT, so it's a 6 core CPU.
So, again, advantage there.

Re: Intel Core I3 3220 Vs AMD FX 6300

Alrighty then, I will give you some info regarding both processor...


A) AMD FX-6300 :-

1. In multi-threaded programs, the AMD FX-6300 is 32% faster.
Memory performance of the microprocessor is better.

2. This CPU includes AES technology. This extension accelerates AES encryption and decryption, and is beneficial if you need to protect your disk or network data.
The AMD FX-6300 incorporates FMA4 and XOP instructions, that were introduced in the recent past. These extensions are not widely used by applications yet, however their support should improve in future apps.

3. The microprocessor has FMA3 instruction set extension enabled. The FMA3 technology is only offered on AMD CPUs, thus it may not get broad support from software vendors.

4. The clock multiplier on the AMD FX-6300 is not locked. The CPU can be effortlessly overclocked on most motherboards when higher performance is desired.

5. The official price of the FX-6300 is lower than the price of the i3-3220.

6. The FX-6300 processor has 16% better price/performance ratio.



AMD FX-6300 - General recommendations:-

Performs somewhat faster in all types of programs, Supports FMA4 / XOP instructions, Allows simple overclocking, Less expensive, Better price / performance ratio.


B) Intel Core i3-3220:-

1. Single-threaded performance of the CPU is higher.

2. The microprocessor features integrated HD 2500 GPU. While this graphics unit is not fast enough to play latest games at full resolution, it can be used for casual gaming and 3D applications.

3. The Intel i3-3220 is 42% more energy efficient.



Intel Core i3-3220 - General recommendations:-

Faster in single-threaded tasks, Integrates HD 2500 GPU, Needs less power.



AMD FX-6300 -The Drawbacks:-

Worse performance in single-threaded tasks, Does not have on-chip graphics, Requires significantly more power.


Intel Core i3-3220 - The Drawbacks:-

Rather slow, Lacks some instructions, Slightly higher official price, Somewhat worse price / performance ratio.



In this case...with the specifications of the next gen systems out in the open, I think the AMD FX 6300 is the best bet by far, So I'd suggest you going with the AMD FX 6300 if you want a cpu with the longest lifetime.

Re: Intel Core I3 3220 Vs AMD FX 6300

My friend's never gonna Overclock it.
AMD consumes near about double the energy of Intel

The only issue I was thinking about is for AMD he need a AMD mobo too and then in future he need to upgrade with AMD only else again too much expense of changing Mobo. !

So till now 2 guys for AMD

Yes power efficiency of Intel is way better than that of AMD but performance wise AMD is a no brainier. If you had asked this question over a year ago, i would have suggested you the i3 as at that time Games were not needing more then 2 cores to work and intel had better per clock performance so they used to perform better than AMD. But now with games utilizing more then 2 cores, amd has the clear advantage.

In the future when he'll upgrade from i3 he'll still have to buy a new motherboard as already new haswell 7 series motherboards are available and i don't think he'' be upgrading any time soon so the ivy bridge processors would be out of the market by then and he will have to go for a haswell processor. So in either situation(going from amd to intel or from intel to intel) he'll have to upgrade the motherboard in future if he is going for a processor upgrade.

So go for the AMD FX 6300

Both the i3 3220 and fx 6300 will support DDR3-1333, DDR3-1600 and fx 6300 will also support DDR3-1866 as well. So don't worry about that.

Re: Intel Core I3 3220 Vs AMD FX 6300

Okay more queries

1. How is the after market service of AMD ? ( in Delhi)
Any idea guys ?

2. My friend recently bought a Nvidia GT650 something (2gb for some 13k Odd)
And I don't know where but somewhere I read that Nivida + AMD processor is a Bad combo for gaming (FPS, speed and all ?)
Don't take it as a newbie stuff just curious because I read it on some forums and even I heard this thing for the first time.

3. Is it really worth going for it na guys ?
Else this friend might think I made a fool of him.
And his hard-earned money !

1. I have no idea of the A.S.S in Delhi, so i'm gonna skip that.

2. LoL. No.
Most people have those misconceptions.
Actually it's the other way around.

AMD CPUs slightly prefer Nvidia GPUs than their own in-house AMD GPUs.

3. YES!

I'm itself using AMD processor with nVidia GPU for last 7 years and really i got much better performance with there combo.

Tell him, If you don't like my idea, Then buzz off...
