AMD FX-Series shows up for pre-order

Written by Slobodan Simic

Three desktop Bulldozers listed
Guys from CPU World site managed to find an early listing of AMD's upcoming FX-Series processors. Altough, according to our sources, the actual release is a month away, it is still nice to see the first prices in order to get a more clear picture.

The three CPUs in question are the eight-core FX-8120 and FX-8150 as well as the single six-core FX-6100. The six, or hexa-core, FX-6100 ticks at 3.3GHz with a 3.9GHz Turbo mode clock, has 6MB of L2 cache and 8MB of L3 cache, and a 95W TDP. This one is listed at US $188.32.

The two octa-cores, the FX-8120 and FX-8150 both feature 8MB of L2, 8MB of L3 cache and same 125W TDP. The faster FX-8150 is clocked at 3.6GHz with a 4.2GHz Turbo while the FX-8120 ticks at 3.1GHz, with a 4GHz Turbo. The FX-8150 is listed with a US $266.28 while the FX-8120 has a US $221.73 price tag.

Of course, this is the first listing and prices might be a bit lower once all the other retailers/e-tailers join in on the fun.

Yes, I do too. Dam AMD, I was planning on updating my PC in the Middle of 2012, but with these awesome prices, I may do that upgrade much sooner...
Awesome Job AMD, now show us Real World Gaming Benchies...

Ever think that the pricing so low represents a possible weakness in per clock processing power... the same weakness their current processors suffer from?
I'd rather see higher prices and more performance, but then again isn't that what Intel is for?

Cheap 8 core CPU, stand back, this'll be awesome!

doesn't matter how bad you think they will perform, with an estimated 30 percent over thuban clock for clock and the higher clocks these thing will run at, all the while using less power.At this price Amd is back, things are only going to get interesting from release.

Every one thinks because the price is low that they will perform badly, i think it might be something better.Remember back in p4 days, Amd chips were better for wayyy less and with the FX name back, i know these things will fly for sure and fly off the shelves

Edit:hahahha vote me down more you fcuks. your over price cpu's are going to be beat soon for the price of cotton candy and you can't take it. stuff that in your fagboy asses. :-* :cry: :-) :D :lol:

Quoting DaRAGE:

its already priced 50% higher then their current highest (and is a smaller die), and just 30 dollars below the I7-2600.
sounds to me like they are priced to compete and get favourable reviews on launch day (which are the reviews that stick in peoples minds, not the price drop from the competition a few days later)
edit : wow the posts above me got hit by the intel-fanboy brigade!
edit 2: haha, now I got hit too. that's pretty pathetic.
-21 in 1 hour. they are coordinating. so sad.

yup its the same people(person maybe? that would be really sad!), the proof is in your 2de posts -11 while your fist post -23 hasn't changed and neither has mine.

and as a AMD fan I have to admit your posts can come across as a bit optimistic, i tried to keep my post as close to the facts as possible.
I cant see fault with it provided you don't consider AMD to be stupid.

I want to see benchmarks. Until then, this means almost nothing. You can't speculate performance based off pricing alone. AMD may have a winner and is just trying to undercut Intel to regain market share, or AMD knows their performance isn't great and is selling it cheap to try and make sales. Until then, who knows...

Don't people have better things than to hack Fudzilla and rate all good none bias posts Negative? Like Bloody Grow the F*ck up...
We want AMD to do well so that competition can stay healthy and give us better products for cheaper prices. I won't buy Nvidia due to bad past experiences, but I still want them to remain competitive...

Seriously Grow up Trolls.....
