Find a bench for programs you run.

AMD is not better for multithreaded apps unless they thoroughly make use of multi-core. i7-3930K is far superior if it's just multi-threaded,it just costs much more.

Intel right now has higher IPC (instructions per cycle), which matters for most applications.

See i7-4770k vs FX-8350 http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/697?vs=836

and i7-3930K vs FX-8350 http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/697?vs=552

FX-8350 review http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/2012/11/06/amd-fx-8350-review/5

FX-8350 performs well in 7-Zip http://www.overclockers.ru/lab/50228_4/Obzor_i_testirovanie_processora_AMD_FX-8350_Vishera.html#24 , http://www.pcper.com/reviews/Processors/AMD-FX-8350-and-FX-6300-Processor-Review-Vishera-Breaks-Cover/Results-7-Zip-and-V

FX-8350 also performs well in small renders http://techreport.com/review/23750/amd-fx-8350-processor-reviewed/12 , http://www.behardware.com/articles/880-7/amd-fx-8350-review-is-amd-back.html

FX-8350 lags behind overclocked i7s in renders: http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/amd_fx8350/5.htm , http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews/cpu_mainboard/amd_vishera_fx8350_piledriver_review/6

FX-8350 is close for encoding http://www.techspot.com/review/586-amd-fx-8350-fx-6300/page5.html

Also does OK in compiling http://www.behardware.com/articles/880-8/amd-fx-8350-review-is-amd-back.html

Slower Audio convert via LAME http://www.hardocp.com/article/2012/10/22/amd_fx8350_piledriver_processor_ipc_overclocking/4#.UeCuh22RXDA

Bad in gaming when compared to Intel http://www.overclockers.ru/lab/52863_3/Testirovanie_processorov_AMD_FX-8350_BE_i_FX-8320_BE_v_igrah.html

The main problem is Windows gimps AMD. AMD works better on Linux because all of the instruction sets seem to get utilized.

What a terrible bunch of benchmarks you have posted. The 4770K costs at least 1.5x what the 8350 costs and the 3930K... really? You need to post a CPU that costs 3x the price of the 8350 to make your point. I'm surprised you didn't post benchmarks with the 3970X, what's the difference between 3 and 6 when it's grossly overpriced and not what OP is asking about?

OP, ignore this post. The FX83xx's were never meant to compete with Intel's i7's. They compete with i5's and do it very well and are definitely worth their price.

The 8350 is 8 integer cores with 4 floating point units. It 'is' a real 8 core, but not in the sense of what intel would produce i.e 8 floating point units.

even when compared to the i7 3770k/4770k in certain applications the 8350 does very well.
