AMD FX-9370 vs Intel Core i7-4770K

Mini Review

AMD FX-9370 advantages



Picture

available
  • More CPU cores on the FX-9370 help to handle multiple programs or heavily multi-threaded applications.
  • Operating frequency of the AMD FX-9370 processor is higher than the frequency of the i7-4770K.
  • XOP instructions are enabled on this CPU. While these extensions are not extensively used in programs yet, their support should improve in future apps.
  • The processor includes FMA4 instruction set extension. The FMA4 technology is only offered on AMD CPUs, therefore it probably will not get broad support from software vendors.
  • The microprocessor is priced 34% lower.

Intel Core i7-4770K advantages



Intel Core i7-4770K
  • The i7-4770K has AVX2 instructions, that were introduced in modern processors not too far ago. Even though these extensions are not widely supported by applications yet, this should improve in future programs.
  • In addition to 4 CPU cores, the i7-4770K integrates HD 4600 GPU. This graphics is not a substitute for high-end graphics cards, but it can be used for casual gaming and 3D apps.
  • The microprocessor is 62% more energy efficient.

FX-9370 vs i7-4770K specifications comparison

The charts below compare the most important i7-4770K and FX-9370 characteristics. These features, along with an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a microprocessor performs. The "Number of cores / threads" graph displays the number of cores (darker area). Lighter area on the graph corresponds to the number of additional threads, provided by Hyper-Threading technology. The "Operating frequency" chart uses dark color to represent base frequency, whereas lighter area is for extra frequency, provided by Turbo feature. Darker area on the "On-chip cache" graph is for the On-chip L2 cache. Lighter area is for the L3 cache cache. Although the L3 cache cache is usually larger than the On-chip L2 cache, it is always slower.
