PCSX2 and AMD FX Series
#1
Well the title says it all.

I wonder if any member of the forum or any of the developers have tried one of the new models of AMD.

Perform well?
They use the SSE 4.1 and 4.2 as well as the Intel Sandy Bridge?
With which Intel processor model is compared.

Anyway, you should buy one of these or is it better to go for Intel.

I know the technical differences between the two processors, I know the Intel performs much better for its price and the AMD tends to consume much more energy, but I have something like an affection for AMD and would like to know if it really worth buying an FX-8150 or buy directly from the i7 2600K.

Regardless of whether it is better Intel or AMD, the AMD FX perform better than the Phenom II?
They can run games like Gran Turismo 4 at full speed as Intel Core i do today?

Anyway, thank you very much for answers and hopefully help me with something.

Greetings!

I skimmed through some reviews and benchmarks, no reason to get Bulldozer unless you're running octocore apps. Clock for clock AMD comes up short as usual

40% slower in pcsx2 at the same clocks as a 2500k

Currently Intel and Nvidia are the best combination.

I know Bulldozer is a washout, but still...ouch.

yep.
Sad but true. Bulldozer has crappy performances especially when it comes to gaming.
CPU : I7 2600K Oc'ed @ 4.2Ghz
Mobo : Intel P67 southbridge
GPU : NVIDIA Geforce GTX 750 Ti
RAM : 6 Go

Well, I suspect it would be that way, but as FX have the SSE 4.1 and 4.2, in addition to the AVX and AES, I hoped that in the PCSX2 were closer to the Intel.

Well, I guess with these results I'd rather stay with the 2600K.

Thanks for your comments.

If you search the forums, you will find ref, rama or cotton explaining how the SSE instructions have little impact on performance (except in certain cases). Its all down to how the cpu operates that makes pcsx2 perform better.

AMD-FX has a AVX.

Does PCSX2 Support to AMD's AVX?

Sorry,I'm Japanese.
My English is bad.
Please understand my question.

yes, but it doesn't matter. bulldozer is way too weak for pcsx2, just forget it.
