Watching the video you posted and looking at the comparative technical specs, the AMD cpu does compare more favourably on features+memory bandwidth to Intel's LGA2011 systems, and is still cheaper than the lesser Intel ivy-bridges.
The only reservation I'd have about recommending AMD/ATI stuff is from reliability. And driver support. In my experience Windows does tend to degrade performance quicker on AMD CPUs. Hotfixes/service packs don't tend to cripple ageing Intel CPU systems the same for some inexplicable reason.
