FX is that sort of weird that I love. A multi-core RISC design that has the same single core performance as my current machine, actually a bit better, and double the cores. It fascinates me. I also want to run older OS’s when I need to. Fact is FX will probably be my leading platform for… Well a while, if not indefinitely. I need the older OS compatibility, XP for example, to stream older games (OBS supports XP), and I need the hardware compatibility. Now the arguments have been made to me that I could buy haswell or whatever, and yeah sure I could. I could also buy Zen for about as much as the investment as I would be making on FX. But I’m a processor junky. I don’t care about new, I care about interesting. I had a phenom before my current machine and I loved it. It actually handled streaming BETTER than the sandybridge that I have now, and if I could go back to that phenom machine right now with a 970 board for 20 bucks I would do it in an instant TBH. FX s just the jump higher up than that phenom, the next evolution.
My previous machine was a phenom that was older than my sandybridge, but for streaming and all the stuff I do now it was A++ and better at it than my current system. an FX chip is basically 2.5 of those phenoms slapped together, and I don’t need to buy new ram. Its honestly logical for me to get that, on top of cost effective. Plus, I like processors that are interesting.
Top kek wanna trade?
