AMD FX-8350 4.0Ghz Socket AM3+
Improved performance and power consumption.
Appreciable performance improvements with multicore-optimized software.
Compatible with older AMD socket and motherboards.
Eight cores and 5GHz on your desktop computer.
Officially supports DDR31866 memory.
Better performance than Intel on multithreaded tasks.
An FX system has 38 usable PCIE lanes as opposed to the 24 lanes of a Sandy Bridge system.
Piledriver CPU core design.
Improved "Per Clock" performance.
Compatible with existing AM3 products.
Still lags Intel in important areas like gaming.
Uses much more power than comparable Intel chips, which also have on-chip graphics.
Single core performance still lags far behind Intel.
Few programs use new FX instructions like fused multiply add.
Same maximum TDP as previous products.
Perhaps a bit late to the market.
It still uses 32nm while Intel is on 22nm.
Higher power consumption than Intel products.
"Low" but adequate single threaded performance will not appeal to some.

Our hero should have been released a year ago, named "FX-8150." Like any worthy debut processor of a new microarchitecture, it outperforms Phenom II X6 1100T and scores on a par with (sometimes even better than) the top Core i5 CPUs of the 2nd...-
