    I bet the A10-6800K will cost a pretty penny.

    I'm guessing at most it will cost no more than 135$ since other apus are fairly cheap 2

    You clearly have no idea what you are talking about... google a little bit first, specially when posting replies on a tech site.

    The title says...a lot cheaper than sandy bridge. I really hope you were trolling, if not I'm sorry for you.
    +the article is about cpus not apus

    The pricing is identical to the i5 series and the i3 series of Sandy Bridge. AMD never made anything that operated similarly to the i7 series. They may have made claims, but according to benchmarks the i7 2600k dominated that generation (not counting i7 performance series).

    So your telling me I can pick up an 17 2600k for 110$. I wish you were right but sadly you are wrong.

    bulldozer FX cpus never really related to APUs in terms of pricing and reviews.

    Back prior to its launch, Bulldozer was supposed to be the answer to Sandy Bridge. The article I posted a link to had this to say: "In all likelihood, though, AMD probably never intended to compete with Intel in terms of raw processing power". The benchmarks for Bulldozer were posted weeks prior to the prices being released. AMD saw what they failed to accomplish and priced the chips to sell instead of directly competing with Intel. The 2600k owned that generation. Now, it is the 3770k or the 3960k (if you can afford one). Next, who knows?

    I still fail to see how bulldozer is suddenly relevant to this article.
