  1. I have been looking at many articles and some say FX 8150 and some say FX 8150P

    What is the difference between these two?

    Thanks

    Theres not a huge amount of difference between the two, the FX 8150P is an unlocked version so like the Intel I7 990X is compared to the I7 990

    Oh I see. So the FX 8150P will be more expensive.

    Probably by about $20 bucks. The 'P' version has an unlocked multiplier. It makes OC'ing a bit easier, but traditionally you can OC a 'locked' version to the same frequency using 'FSB' method (reference clock) which just takes a bit longer.

    Are there any estimates on the costs of the Bulldozer series. They said the 8130P will cost 320 bucks, then they said the 8150P will cost 320 bucks and 8130P less.

    i would say that might start off about that amount but amd cores generally drop quickly so wait it out for a month after they release them
