2 cents of my personal money on this topics..

InteL XXX  or AMD xxxx ???

Forget all about these sites comparing "beast CPU x" with "beast CPU y"
They do not make any sense at all..
in particular when done with WINTEL kernels and MS "applets.."

All you need is ask yourself (or sketch on paper)
what this CPU is meant for and how much will cost ?

**IF**  you can  compile the system yourself (aka using a distro for that)
like a half dozen available...  the answer will always tend to AMD...

Reason being from my own money put on these setups..
- Optimized KERNELS compiled for AMD tend to be better... and safer..
- AMD has been order of magnitude more compatible and friendly.
- the 2 reasons above will allow you to choose better compile time options...
- better and wider MOBO alternatives ... and
- better  low level drivers for these MOBOS.

the last reason/rationale will let you have a very fine grained scheduler
and the proper compile time options + scheduler will give you a much faster system..

All scenarios.. LowLatency - server like loads... or simple desktops..

I have 3 base setups on this
- A very low latency
- A very nice Workstation for EDA and stuff
- A nice ongoing NAS server...

All AMD...  cause my Intel builds are always steps behind that..
reasons ... the poor compatible options of MOBOs /chipsets..
compiler options..  insane changes in sockets.. etc et al..

Also it will cost less...

FX8350 is definitely faster, both single- and multi-threaded, except memory bandwidth.
X5670 is generally faster a bit.

Yep that is also my results...

The only gotcha i had happened recently upgrading a machine w. Fx8 and the JAVA JRE  got totally berserk...

Not really surprised as it is closed source.. and a pain to maintain

I am looking a compatible open jdk replacement for that...

Overall fx tend to be better than those insane Intel sockets
