Meanwhile, Intel is transitioning to 14nm process, while your processor still is still 32nm from 2012, and this intel of mine actually 22nm from the same year. These numbers might not tell you much, but the main difference to me is that my processor runs much cooler and requires less power.
AMD is way behind the competition.
They tell me a lot, and you pretty much reached the same conclusions that I reached a year ago. AMD still makes good processors but they have been behind intel for awhile now. When it came to picking a new processor for my HTPC I picked a A5350 over a i3. It was a perfect processor for the job too.
Next year I'll be sniffing around to replace the fx-8150 workstation I have. Unless AMD does something drastic to get caught up, I will probably be going with a i7 system this year.
I've been a amd fan boy since the 486 days, so if I'm jumping ship.
