    Sources among retailers told DonanimHaber that retail prices of AMD's next generation performance desktop processor series, the AMD FX, are a lot lower than expected. On October 12, AMD will launch three new parts worldwide, the eight-core FX-8150, FX-8120, and six-core FX-6120, priced at US $245, $205, and $175, respectively.

    So about 3 weeks beforehand we get a date? That's not even enough time for me to get a job and get paid!

    *sigh* Although the prices are pretty damn good.

    8 cores for 245 USD? I'll take that any day.

    Now the question is, do I buy the ASRock 990X Fatal1ty or Asus Crosshair V? ^^

    Just hope that it matches performance of intel 2600K (8core) and 2500K (6core)...

    priced to sell. performance is what we all would like to know! I believe in my heart that if power consumption is good as well as this rumored price. It will do well with oems. I look at this as like phenom 1, It can only get get better with revisions and stepping.

    This doesn't bode well for performance does it? Once again, instead of leapfrogging Intel like we should see, they'll be forced to set "value" pricing.

    I never had the thought that they should or would leapfrog intel in performance.

    If they could they would gain substantial market share. I'm going to assume the price drops reflect performance, ready myself for the reviews.

    not until performance is known or until intel displaces 2600k with the rumored 2700k will we see a price drop on those specific k processors. non k cpu price drop looks likely. Intel will imho lower those non k to pressure amd. Fx processor are overclock-able and are directly marketed to compete with intel k versions. That is the target demographic. you don't get a intel k version in your standard desktop dell! amd has their llano for joe six pack consumer.

    nah, it doesnt give us a warm fuzzy that performance will be categorically comparative

    however, I will be more than happy to keep supporting AMD with these prices since I have plenty of power to do everything I need from web surfing to gaming with their cpus and gpus

    If your budget allows go the V or if you really want to make that gamer richer and his head swelled more go ASrock.

    See i told you guys this just like Phenom 1 all over again .Maybe now they have a leader they will turn around... have faith ....but little of it....

    I agree. amd has proven they can improve their cpus. This cpu is the first step like phenom1.
