If you are tired from constant throttling performance but still have no intentions on getting an Intel CPU, say hello to the AMD FX 8350.
This AMD CPU is great in multitasking and overclocking. The FX 8350 holds up very well with today’s modern games. We tried the FX 8350 out on CoD Modern Warfare while running OBS and Google Chrome at the same time and we were very surprised to see no instances of throttling at all.
Although, the AMD FX 8350 does show its bad side when it comes to programs that only need single-thread mode. Also, it is still not as fast as any Intel CPU made for gaming but that does not mean the FX 8350 is a deal-breaker.
At the end of it all, the AMD FX 8350 is one of the fastest AM3+ CPU. I do not see a reason why this would not be worth getting.
