Can a 5GHz AMD FX processor compete with Intel's Haswell, Ivy Bridge?

Dputiger (561114) writes "AMD has announced that it's launching a new FX processor with a 225W TDP and a 4.7GHz base clock / 5GHz Turbo speed. We decided to see how an overclocked FX-8350 would compare if set to the same clock speeds courtesy of a phase-change cryo cooler. The performance gains are significant in some areas, but this is definitely an uphill battle."
