[] Pricing Revealed for First AMD Bulldozer FX Chips

Though AMD began shipping Bulldozer-based sever CPUs last week, we're still waiting until Q4 for the new architecture to hit the desktop. In the meantime, however, pre-order pricing for the high-end FX-series CPUs (codenamed Zambezi) has been leaked, giving the AMD faithful an idea of how much the new processors will set them back.

AMD Bulldozer FX-series Processors Name Cores CPU Clock L2 Cache L3 Cache TDP Price FX-8150 8 3.6GHz (4.2GHz Turbo) 8MB 8MB 125W $266.28 FX-8120 8 3.1GHz (4GHz Turbo) 8MB 8MB 125W $221.73 FX-6100 6 3.3GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) 6MB 8MB 95W $188.32 If you think that these prices seem too low for eight and six-core chips, remember that Bulldozer's architecture is such that a "dual-core" CPU is actually one core with two copies of several hardware features - the CPU is visible to the OS as two cores, but physically each of AMD's cores is somewhere in between Intel's HyperThreading implementation and a "true" dual-core design - you can read Anand's original Bulldozer post for more information on this.

The Bulldozer-based FX-series processors are targeted at the high-end of the market, and therefore do not include an on-board GPU. The 32nm processors will be available in Q4 of this year for socket AM3+ motherboards (and some socket AM3 motherboards with an updated BIOS, though these motherboards may not be able to take advantage of all of Bulldozer's new features).
