    Article says it matches the Core i3-3225 in gaming.

    However I've never seen anyone say the Core i3-3xxx series "is behind in gaming". One standard for Intel another for AMD.

    One great thing about that review is it shows the Piledriver handily beat out the Phenom II in gaming, contrary to the misinformation FYFI13 said.

    +1 for the article, it was an interesting read.

    I think it might be doable

    I think it's a close 2nd....you decided to take the #1 spot yourself!!

    I think its pretty amazing, can't deny that those numbers are super sexxy. Too bad it would appear that performance is still behind Intel, and AMD's current growth pattern doesn't really show them catching up to Intel anytime soon....thus Intel will still be able to keep their prices up and do not necessarily have to become more competitive. This is why prices rarely vary away from the MSRP Intel lists throughout the lifespan of their products....So we lose as consumers, just saying....

    FX 8350 is definitely an improvement over the FX 8150. This s positive and shows AMD is on the right track, we can only imagine the Steamroller to add to the performance.

    Im excited!!!! This is a great feat ! Im drooling in anticipation!! One can only imagine what intel will unleash if it takes Amd seriously. If this be the end of the desktop era.....Both sides should go all out and end it with a BOOOOOOOM!!!!!!!

    True enthusiast/ nut here.....When i didnt want to run up a credit bill I've cashed in aluminum cans and scrap copper/ steel to get extra funds for my "hobby"{surprised at how much i get for junk) And most importantly sell off old parts:laugh:

    well if AMD did this and was a wake up call for them, they probably aint going to slack off on SR. Dont get me wrong Id rather have great chips on a Mature Process than a young process
