I thought this would get more interest? No interest in AMD I guess. It is about $20 cheaper than it has ever been at Jet.com

I'm now building a PC and wanted to check AMD first (I've been AMD fan for years), but looking at the tests AMD is not even close to intel in terms of price/performance. That's very bad for consumers but it is what it is. Same applies to GPUs, we have to accept that AMD is in the deep ass right now and unless they don't change anything right now we'll have a single corporation controlling both CPU and GPU market.

It has a TDP of 220 Watts, hell, you even have to make sure your motherboard is capable of handling the CPU since its so power hungry.

Problem is, this is like an old 80's V8, somewhat quick, but cant keep up with the newer far more efficient turbo 4's.

oh wow. a little power hungry for my tastes. I guess if u just needed the CPU and had a motherboard it might make sense.

The piledriver architecture these use is over 4 years old now.

It would be like posting a deal for a sandy bridge CPU.

AMD's CPUs pretty much blow, but their GPUs easily beat Nvidia in price/performance.

Tell me about that.EEK!AMD is in the deepest asshole. I used to be with AMD since Athlon 939 till Phenom II X6. I wanted to buy AMD now as Intel has been more $$$, it took me 30minutes to figure out that AMD could be good in synthetics, but as long as we start talking FPS it's not even close and since I'm using my rig for VR and I'm tired of missing frames on my 4210H I had no choice but to jump on I5-6600k for 215$ deal.

Yeah I'm in the same boat man. I was an AMD guy for a long time, but I ended up going Intel + Nvidia for VR.

That's not accurate. If you look at an 8320E with a UD3P motherboard and the code for a game — all for $130 after tax and rebate, it kills Intel for some usage scenarios because the 8320E will readily overclock with that board to 4.4 GHz on air.

I can't even imagine what kind of scenarios those are? Throwing in into the fireplace? Seriously, if you do video editing - go for I7-6700k, if you want HTC Vive - go for I5-6600k. Maybe if your most consuming software is microsoft word, then you can live with 8320E like I lived with I5-4210H, but if you keep up with 2016 and use modern technology those CPUs are useless. If AMD would sell CPUs with better price/perf ration than intel it's market share chart would look better than this: http://g.foolcdn.com/editorial/im..._large.png I wish we had at least two competitors, but this is not the case.Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)

How about scenarios where one can get a CPU and a board for $130 after tax and rebate that is capable, with a decent cooler, of powering competitive framerates in modern games like this one?

I got open box asus z170 for 93$+i5-6600k for 215$ minus 25$ coupon and 10$ for cooler after rebate, at the moment this machine is running at 4.5Ghz only because I didn't try it at higher rates. While 130$ might be a good deal, I'm using my rig for VR and on this setup it's smooth as baby's ass.
