4.7 ghz, 8 cores. Probably still not as good as intel, but it certainly could be good in home workstations.


Not at that price it cant.


And not at that heat output and power usage.
For a "home workstation" you're probably better off with an old Core 2 Duo. Unless workstation really means like... you're an aerospace engineer working a contract job as a biochemist.

I would rather have an 8350.


That is an 8350. It's piledriver factory overclocked. When this came out I purposely set my 8350 to 4.7 GHz and manually set my turbo to 5.0 GHz. Look guys, I paid $160 for an $800 processor!

And... no one cares. Still, I honestly wonder why they even released this. Oh, right, dumb people.

Why is it that he can hit a 3rd baseman on a frozen rope from 300 feet away, but he can't hit a 12 foot tall catcher from 60 feet 6 inches away?

Just look up any 8350 overclock benchmark at 4.7 or higher. It's the same thing.
