I was expecting amd to make a Bugatti. All they made was Peugeot Hogger.

As an AMD-fanboy (GPUs) this is a sad day when I find out that.. yet again, an stock i5-3570K totally outperforms an overclocked FX8350 at 4.8GHz is ridiculous and this only shows AMDs ignorance and how much they don't really care about us performance per dollar people, instead their main focus are for laptops (closed standards and systems). I feel sad for people buying this unit. Thank you Tom and OC3D for all your hard work, review and honest thoughts.

The pricing is still the same as a 3570k, mega confusion.

Even at stock every normal place that matters the 3570k wins it. Unless you are rendering but then the CPU gets held back by crappy ram performance.

Once you overclock the 3570k there is no contest.

They really do seem to be going backwards these days compared to the old Athlon64 days.

As you said in the video,this is bad for us punters.

I don't know if this is AMD's way of casually slipping out of the performance market without crashing and burning....by crashing and burning i mean just stopping altogether and going out like a fart.

I really honestly believe they still have it in them to bring something to intels front door but it almost feels like they don't give a flying .

Yes they have the lower market segment by the balls, but is that seriously all they strive for when they have the tools to become what they once where? big money is being made in the portable/home theater segment for AMD but in all honesty this just shows how lazy they have become.

Why have a slice of cake? when you could eat the entire damn thiing?!

I'm very worried too now. This ain't good people, this ain't good... Any idea what Intel's going to do with the Haswell release date? Still somewhere around may 2013?

Just watched the review, this has left me so disappointed. Really wanted something from AMD. Like Tom said we need competition otherwise Intel will rape us, mainly because they can. AMD need to get their house in order and fast. Need to step back to the 1090t days and have another breakthrough.
Looks like i'll be selling my 1090t soon before they sell for next to nothing. Never thought i'd say this but it looks like Intel is the only viable option nowadays.
Sad times
