    No, it is a good decision.

How many times has this myth been shredded? At this forum and many others. They were at the end of the road with the Phenom II line. They could not squeeze anything more out of it. IIRC there was a four core cpu with L3 at 32 nm and it didn't outperform a similar clocked four core 965 BE.

Well AMD said what they are going for and they did. AMD said they wasn't going core vs. core performance with Intel. We are going for multi-threading apps. FX-8350 is sitting between an Intel i5 4670k and an Intel i7 4770k in stock or oc performance in multi-threading.
I have to agree AMD did drop the ball a little bit.
In Multi-threading Apps.
AMD FX is good for the price.
In Single-threading Apps.
AMD drop the balls here. FX chips can't beat Phenom II in single threading and they should. Old Vs. New technology plus FX chips are base on AMD server chips. Meaning better multi-threading vs. Single -threading.

Bacelona/Shanghai = Octo-father // Phenom I & II FX

Instead, AMD released the "value" enthusiast; Perseus and Deneb



Barcelona and Shanghai were Socket F and F+ processors. The successor of which was Montreal, which was a Socket G3 processor.

FX's legacy is not the AM(x) socket, but the G34 socket.

Going AM(x) allowed for a "value" performance platform. While, if AMD wanted the "enthusiast" performance crown. They would have made Socket F onwards the FX platform.

If AMD wanted to compete with LGA1366/LGA2011, they would have done a single chip in socket G3/G34. More pins allow for more grounds thus more stable power supply.

The Leo Refresh was to fill in the gap of the Socket G3 "Piranha" Platform. Montreal which was a quad-core "Bulldozer" was going to be in that space. The language between Greyhound+ and Bulldozer has not changed.

Over the Greyhound/Greyhound+ cores. Bulldozer was always 33% faster in "Computational" operations and 50% faster in "Memory" operations.
The next "FX" platform and core will be revealed in February 2015.
