£150 Gaming CPU: AMD FX 8370 (w/ Wraith) vs Intel Core i5-6400 Review

Posted on Sunday, February 14 2016 @ 11:20:09 CET by

There is little doubt that the two components most integral to a gaming system are its GPU and CPU. In an ideal world, everybody would be able to opt for the fastest of both and worry not about having to optimise game settings in search of smooth frame rates. But in reality, striking a balance between GPU and CPU performance can be a tricky task, especially when the pair draw from the same cash pool. It is no secret that Intel’s latest Core i7 processors generally rule the roost when it comes to gaming performance on the CPU side. But they also demand a significant price premium over the lower-performance Intel and AMD chips that are commonly referred to as ‘good enough’ for gaming requirements. It may be smarter to invest that £100+ section of budget into a faster graphics card rather than a flagship, Core i7-level CPU. And that’s where today’s ~£150 processors hit the limelight.
