AMD slips out the 8-core FX-Series CPU price

Written by Slobodan Simic

Shows up in the FX Giveaway
Although the exact release date hasn't been revealed yet, AMD has unintentionally revealed the price of the 8-core FX-Series Bulldozer CPU. The price showed up in the AMD FX Giveaway opened for US and Canada residents and is suggesting that the 8-core should cost at around US $300.

Of course, the giveaway isn't precise about what CPU is AMD talking about, but we guess that it is all about the flagship FX-8150P. A while back AMD unofficially said that the 8-core FX-Series flagship should cost at around US $300. It looks like AMD will stick to this price as this is the first time we see any official confirmation from AMD.

As far as the giveaway is concerned, all you have to do is give your details to AMD and you might win one of five FX-Series 8-core Black Edition CPUs or one of 100 collectible ruby dolls. As noted, the giveaway is opened for US and Canada residents.

Credit goes to Insideris.com site for noticing this one and you can check out the giveaway here.

300$ translates to 300eur or ~300pounds..not good,knowing that Intel drop price straight after bOObdozzer launch (if it ever happen LOL)
And knowing,that Intel 4cores>>>>>amd 8cores,means that Intels 4cores will cost less,overcklock way better (we already know this) and be faster (STILL FASTER)
5Ghz 2500K or 2600K >>>>>>>>>>>>> any bOObdozzer nonsense.
And Sandy E and Ivy will finish amd cpu "business" (if this one even exist)
amd=Always Manage Defeat (gulp gulp gulp :D )

I expected higher prices. From everything we are hearing from Bulldozer it should be really competitive with Intels Sandy Bridges, probably will be behind the Extreme edition, but I don't have $1,000 to buy a new processor Plus $300 for the memory and Mobo.

Sometimes reading Intel fans, or just a morons post, makes you wonder if they are all 5?

seriously!
So his happy because (in his opinion) there is no competition in the cpu market? He isn't that bright isn't he.

Where are you hearing things from?
I've seen nothing. Just fake bench, and pretended slides. No one has the slightest idea of what BD is going to be.

In my country the 2600k (now 7 months old!!!) is at 240€ (vat inclusive). And we know that DAAMIT logic is 300$=300€.

300 dollar will be 247 Euro including 19% VAT (EU average)
which btw is exactly what a 2600k costs here, where we have 19% VAT.

300 dollar = 300 euro is (some)apple, consoles and steam-games logic, NOT hardware makers logic.

show me one common AMD product that cost the same in dollars as in euros.
