they compare the FX8350 to the i5 3570K... a CPU with 4 well build cores (Intel) is better than a CPU with 8 weak cores in my opinion, and this was tested with the FX 8150... Maybe the FX 8350 will be an improvement to the FX 8150, but it's strange... AMD compare his top-CPU with an Intel upper-mainstream CPU...

I was taking a similar pc to this with a FX 8150, but fortunately I read a few reviews of AMD "fake-8 cores CPUs" and then I decided to go for Ivy Bridge...
