Either way you look at it it's not good. The power consumption is downright scary when overclocked and OCing is the only way it can distance itself from the X6 and get close to the 2600K stock. The 8150 is more or less closer to 2500K so the price should be 210$ and even then for gaming purposes the 2500 is a clear win. As I said before, all the leaks heavily contested by many just proved to paint the real picture of this first generation of Bulldozer. Sorry but I really can't find a sound reason to purchase these chips.
