I have no idea what thread you are reading or what benchmarks you are seeing. But your reply itself is pretty brand loyal or even worse.
It is easy to say "hey Intel runs better so we should all buy Intel". It would ruin your own perfect Intel life as Intel would get a monopoly and prices would go even more sky high.
I am running all Intel CPUs in my rigs right now. But I still think AMD should be supported. The FX chips are different than the Intel chips. They take a different approach. No one in this thread has ever said AMD competes in the high-end segment or is up to par with Intel. Developers should in my humble opinion serve all gamers from all different wallet sizes. There are enough games out there that run great on an FX chip.
Point where it all started: the AMD chips are not where they should be in the benchmarks. The developers are not doing what they can to get the power out of the FX8350 that is there. How anyone can say that isn't true is beyond me.
