Hey there! The title pretty much says it all, but I’ll just tell the whole story for those who have time to read it.
I’ve been planning long on a much needed rebuild of my 2008 budget-build PC, and it’s meant to be a serious rebuild which I’d like to last reasonably long. I’ve read lots of reviews and comments about pretty much anything, but the CPU is the most important thing and it’s not yet solved. Basically, I can finally afford a 3770k, which I didn’t count on earlier. It appears to be better at pretty much everything, which should well be for the price difference with the FX-8350 Black Series. There are however 4 reasons that make me want to go AMD:
- FX-8350’s got 8 physical cores
- FX-8350 has higher clock speed
- AMD build is overall cheaper
- i7 includes integrated GPU, which I absolutely don’t need (I have a GTX 650ti)
Yet, common sense dictates that the price difference between them should make the i7 better, but my question is, which one performs better with Blender?
I also use Gimp, process videos and do some gaming, but my main interest, and what I want to base my choice on, is Blender.
So what do you guys say? It’s really important for me.
