People are buying the FX-8150 for server applications, and heavy multi-threads. People are compiling code, ripping dvds, web browsing, and listening to music, with no slow down. It's the single threads they are slow at (aka games).
That's all well and good, but leaves out that intel chips with hyperhtreading (e.g. 2600K) are just as good or better at multithreaded apps, and also run single threaded apps much faster.
