    It might be comparable to Haswell but only at i3, the i5s will run away and the i7s will kill it. I'm sorry AMD hasn't done a whole lot with their processors since the Phenom series.

    ^ Then what's an Intel CPU and board combo with same performance for equal or lower price? Maybe something at Fry's when they have a promo that gives away the motherboard.

    People pick a $87 CPU to meet a build budget so it doesn't seem relevant to compare against something else that costs a significant % more.
