FX-8350 ($220) vs i5 3570 ($215 non K/ $230 for the K)
Let look at budget CPU's FX-4300 vs i3 3220 (both $130)
Very close on most everything but AMD pulls out the win here in my book, cheaper MB's and can be overclocked.
I feel as AMD needs to lower the price and not match Intel to start to win people back or maybe they are selling lower than what they want to already
But things do not look any better going forward, check this out
