    The poor core utilization stems from Bulldozer/Piledrivers shared FP units and an average cache performance. It has already been proven that OS coding (core parking W7 vs. W8) makes virtually no difference in the FX series performance.
    ...and if you run Cinebench then the FX makes a compelling choice- unfortunately, very few people use Cinebench, and even fewer use Cinebench in isolation. Any meaningful real-world comparison needs to take into account multiple apps running concurrently (see my earlier post for the bit-tech testing). fwiw, the FX 6300 is a better bet (performance per $) than the 8350.

    You make a good point divide by zero, And I really can not find fault in your logic. :)

    Im always rooting for the underdog!

    I prefer Intel cpu since they offer consistently better performance in current games than their amd counterparts!
    Also I suppose they consume less power as their clock speeds are lower
