Yeah I remember your FX55. I had an AMD cpu at that time. I don't remember

AMD is also bringing an 8 core and Intel won't let that go by for long. Hope AMD kicks butt so Intel will lower prices.

SB-E is 8 core, but last I read it's likely to be limited to hexacore cpus for power reasons. If Bulldozer performs better than expected, maybe Intel will make some tweaks and release a couple of octocore cpus.

Hmmm, didn't know that. I thought the desktop models were 2 6 cores and 1 quad core coming out for Sandy Bridge-E

my take on Bulldozer is this...judging by early buzz it won't be overtaking Intel's current offerings...but I don't think it needs to...as long as it doesn't totally suck and can somewhat compete with Intel's lower tier offerings then they will be fine...AMD has mostly competed through value and this looks to be great in terms of price/performance

plus if they can overclock really well that it will negate some of Intel's advantages...AMD CPU's have always had a good reputation as being good overclockers

I was going to say that the fact that AMD doesn't change out sockets every year or so (which is something really annoying about Intel) is another huge advantage but apparently the 2nd gen Bulldozer processors will use a new socket...won't certain current socket AM3 mobo's support Bulldozers as well with a BIOS update?...that's really nice

I'm thinking that the 2nd generation of Bulldozer due in 2012 will be much better as since this is a completely new design built from the ground up they'll have a chance to fix the bugs...the architecture behind Bulldozer sounds good so hopefully it will mature into an amazing platform

either way AMD is poised to make a nice comeback regardless of whether or not they can beat Intel...this is just the first step...they are still a year or more behind Intel so they need to play catch up

Re: AMD FX-Series Top-of-the-Range Microprocessor to Cost $320 - Report

Yea, I stayed away from Intel until the 1156 and then the 1155 sockets became avaliable due to cost of Intel systems. I currently have three AMD and two Intel systems, One each mentioned above. All of these builds are sub $1,000.00US which has been my objective. They all are very capable gameing builds. Albeit they may not set any records, they all do run Metro 2033 and Crysis games at good fram rates.

Yeah, it's an 8 core design, but they can just disable some cores at the factory.

@fvbounty - thanks, don't know how I missed it.

These are probably the 'tray' prices, which is the cost of OEM CPUs bought in lots of 1000 units.
