LOL. Now everyone is saying go AMD now cause games are using more than 1 thread. Ever though Intel is FAR faster per core base. I would say go Intel. AMD chips are still slow.

Watch Dogs has an i7 3930k as part of it's recommended set up.

I dunno how much of that is true that the game fully needs a CPU that powerful, but the fact they have it as a recommendation could be a sign that we might require more CPU power in the near future.

He was on the APU13 event, where Oxide games showed a demo using Mantle


An i7 4770k is the best choice. You are guaranteed better performance in the games not using more than four cores/threads, and it will still be competetive in the games that do

Thanks for the help guys. I think iam going with the i7 4770k, for a good price-performance combo.

the next gen consoles are all 8 threads so I imagine it will be the case


rumors are the xbone and ps4 reserve 2 of the 8 cores for non gaming stuff so 6 cores available for games.

Wow, didnt know that.


"Oh my god, someone tweeted it! Must be true!" The i7 will still... You know what? If you're stupid enough to believe it, then go for it.

Nope. $100 extra towards a GPU will take you much farther than hyperthreading would.
