AMD FX "Vishera" Processor Pricing Revealed

AMD's upcoming second-generation FX "Vishera" multi-core CPUs are likely to appeal to a variety of budget-conscious buyers, if a price-list leaked from US retailer BLT is accurate. The list includes pricing of the first four models AMD will launch some time in October, including the flagship FX-8350. The FX-8350 leads the pack with eight cores, 4.00 GHz clock speed, and 16 MB of total cache. It is priced at US $253.06. The FX-8350 is followed by another eight-core chip, the FX-8320, clocked at 3.50 GHz, and priced at $242.05.

Trailing the two eight-core chips is the FX-6300, carrying six cores, 3.50 GHz clock speed, 14 MB total cache, and a price-tag of $175.77. The most affordable chip of the lot, the FX-4350 packs four cores, 4.00 GHz clock speed, and 8 MB of total cache (likely by halving even the L3 cache). The FX-4350 is expected to go for $131.42. In all, the new lineup draws several parallels with the first-generation FX lineup, with FX-8150, FX-8120, FX-6100, and FX-4150.

AMD's secrecy makes me nervous. Some people say Vishera will work well with Windows 8, but then there is this.
I don't like my desktop to look like a tablet, it will give me the urge to swipe my Asus LED up and down with my finger :D No really, I don't know what Micro$oft is thinking, but they should at least have the option to make Windows 8 look like Windows 7 on Desktops and notebooks/netbooks IMO. If not I am sticking with my Windows 7 x64 :)

Anyhow, any news on the new AMD FX-8320/50 releases? It's soon according to rumours that have stated October 22, 2012 to October 23, 2012.
AMD plans to formally unwrap its long-awaited performance chip code-named Vishera on the 23th of October , according to a source.

I know we are ALL eager. But man maybe your LOGO should be changed from SuperXP to SuperCharged. I would be shocked if it is NOT on the 23rd at this point. I am not sure why AMD has NOT given a date , is this the way Bulldozer was released?

Yes, I believe so. Bulldozer had rumoured release dates up until AMD made it official.

Are you saying the reliability of the rumored 10/23/12 release is on the same par as rumored performance claims of Bulldozer , which came not from AMD, but hopeful AMD users as well?
I think you are definitely treading in dangerous waters if that is what you are saying. Or perhaps you enjoy playing the "class clown" role?

No, I'm just stating that rumors are nothing but rumors and can easily be wrong by a mile.

AMD accidentally leaked a series of slides showing the FX-8xxx CPU's would dominate the EE Nahalem CPU's in across the board in gaming. The slides were from their big quarterly marketing meeting with investors; they may not have said it to the public, but they were themselves trying to tell their investors that Bulldozer had Intel-Dominating Performance.
