AMD’s FX series processors are scheduled to launch in mid October and AMD seems keen take Intel on in the value department.
According to Donanimhaber, the flagship FX-8150 will end up with a $245 price tag, somewhat lower than expected. The same goes for the FX-8120 and FX-6100, priced at $205 and $175. All things considered, the prices are pretty low and all three of them sound like a pretty good deal.
This basically means AMD will position the FX-8150 against Intel’s Core i7 2600K, hence it is safe to assume that performance will be on par. However, AMD has a tradition of offering somewhat better value for money, so the FX-8150 could end up a bit quicker.
