AMD has way too many CPU models currently, they should really reduce the number of different models they make.

This will never happen, some parts of the wafer do not clock as good as others, and in turn they have to be priced differently. They are not going to waste any wafer if possible which is great for us consumers. Why do you think we have x3's and now new x8 in turn gives us x4, x6's and the possible ability to unlock cores. :toast:

Already MC's price is cheaper or same as the slashed price, so MC will slash even more?
