Does anyone have any benchmarks comparing windows 7 to windows 8 using the fx 8350? im debating if i get the 8350 if i should grab the windows 8 upgrade for like 50 bucks if it means a larger performance gain over my 6100

You are not gonna get much of a boost from 6100 to 8350. Not THAT much, you are better of with an I5, seriously... I know, you want AMD, but really its pointless... The Piledriver cores do not gain anything from windows 8...

That is a review for bulldozer, it will be close to the same for Piledriver.

Im not going to downgrade to an i5 for video rendering though,The 8350 stomps the 3570k in video rendering,And the gameplay wise all the benchmarks show that the 8350 is with the 3770k in high res games.And okay i wont get windows 8 :p  But the 8350 will beat my 6100 in video rendering by a good amount.Hell its a %20 upgrad from the 8250 (the 8350 is) in most things and that should mean that its about a good 35-40% increase from the 6100.

Yes for video rendering the 8350 is better than the I5. But that the 8350 is with the I5 in gaming??? Show me these benchies...

Sadly, windows 8 doesn't offer any performance gain for BD/PD chips. But overall 8350 may give some performance increase for you
