only reason i can see for getting the 9370 over a 8350 would be the fact you keep your warranty at a higher clock. nothing i've seen has made me think it is a "better" chip, a good OC on a 8320 or 8350 will match or beat (maybe, those reveiws seemed like intel fan boys trying their first amd and failing horribly) in everything i've seen at the same clocks 83XX score better. With that said however i've not seen a quality head to head comparison (IE same rig just swap processors)In theory
, if you want super high clocks , the higher base clock would be logical to get. however it doesn't seem to be the case. I've only seen one of the 9XXX series overclocked and that was the 4.7(5 turbo), they made it to 5.2, can't remember the cooling. and scored in the reveiw similar to how a unstable OC would score, so not very good.
now back to actual fact rather then heresy and bad OC reviews, From what we have seen from the most demanding modern game beta (BF4) is that our 83XX chips are within half a dozen % of the performance of the Quad core i7's
83xx seem to have better max frame rate, while i7's seem to have slightly better average. (something that will likely get closer to each other in the product launch)
Neither chips Bottle neck TF or QF setups
