The thing is the 3570k is almost always on sale for $200 somewhere so unless the 8350 is on sale for less than its stand $199 I would still have to go with Intel. It was just on for $199 at NCIX for a surprise sale and is now sold out.
Of course if someone wanted a system for applications like you mentioned then yes its probably a better buy. All those cores make a big difference in production I admit. If you wanted a well rounded system I would think intel would be the better option. If its for applications than cost doesn't really matter if it suits the purpose of your work.
