power hungry and not fast cores,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: AMD FX8350 Black Edition 8 Core Processor (4.0/4.2GHz, 8MB Level 3 Cache, 8MB Level 2 Cache, Socket AM3+, 125W, Retail Boxed) (Personal Computers)
The cores are slower than the i5 and it is less efficient but the overclocking potential is awesome! make sure you have a good motherboard with heatsinks on the mosfets because the voltage this beast needs is around 1.51 at 4.8 on my chip anyways. I left it at the normal clock and it runs at 1.41v max.
great for gaming and runs hitman 1080p smoothly with no stuttering. I have a r9 280x
