    If thats true, wow....AMD with a processor finally priced $300 or higher.....since....I don't know when....since FX-51 ? :laugh:
    We better be able to unlock the multipliers on these things, unlike Sandy Bridge NON-k processors :rolleyes:

    Amen.

    Sorry for the noob question here, but would the higher TDP of the 8130 effect the overclocking capability in any way.

    Do you think we could get higher clocks than the 8110?

    The higher TDP most likely means that the chip is running at a higher frequency at slightly higher voltage. Since it is already clocked higher than the other chips in the lineup it probablly does decrease overclocking headroom a bit, but that is yet to be seen.

    Something is wrong here. 2-module, 4 core(like) bulldozer costs like 6 real core PII. Bulldozer is kicking ass or those prices got to go down...

    I'm more of a mid-range-enthusiast so that FX-4110 is the one I'll likely try (first).

    I hope those prices are real, and the performance is outrageous.

    I was thinking of going with the 6 core. I don't really need them for anything, but just in case game developers pull their head out of their asses and start taking advantage of the hardware they're given, they would be nice to have.

    Wow.

    So far this week we've seen pricing without any basis, performance without any basis, and heard everything from "it's god on silicon" to "it's dog crap on a cracker."

    Anyone else tired of unsubstantiated rumors and "facts" coming from no-name asian blogs that have about as much credit as a company filing chapter 11 in the US (sorry, I don't know international equivalents)?

    The end of this month will introduce bulldozer officially, in time to speak against the sandybridge enthusiast level chips (socket 2011 at computex). Maybe waiting the, barely, two weeks won't kill you; I don't believe in boogey men (with the exception of hockey players), and these rumors will evaporate in two weeks.

    Can both sides' fanboys please sit quietly for just a little while longer. We'll have proof either way, without faked magical numbers, soon enough.
    xenocide says thanks.

    All the rumors so far including this price list have been too good to be true. Sincerely hope I'm proven wrong though.

    I'm liking that FX-6110 too,though I might wait until October for Bulldozer Enhanced.
    My X6 1090T still runs quite well.

    Was thinking of the top of the line one being 320USD. That's just under £200 where I am which is relatively cheap for something that's meant to compete with 2600K and 970* which cost a fair bit more.

    *well.. according to rumors of course.. who knows..

    EDIT: Last time AMD had FX processors they also cost a fair bit more than that from what I recall.

    Where are you seeing a $200 dual core?

    I know what chart you're talking about but those were system prices. Meaning you could build the whole system, along with the CPU, for those prices.

    FX-4110 is not a quad core procossor. It's a dual module. Do you really think that will compete with a native quad like sandy? I doubt that will compete with my Lynnfield that I paid about what FX-4110 is rumored to cost.
