    FX-8150 and FX-8120 are not 6-core but 8-core CPUs, although looking at their performance one could think quad-core-8-threaded parts.

    Kind of expected the cuts to be deeper given the amount of inventory AMD are sitting on.
    FX-8150 cheaper than an 1100T would tend to indicate that the Vishera parts are going to slot in at the previous Bulldozer pricing ( or AMD are sitting on a stockpile of FX parts) which probably indicates the performance level of the parts.
    200MHz bump between stock clock and max turbo for the top part- looks like AMD might not have completely solved their power consumption issues regardless of the hype of "resonant clock meshing"

    Wow, the AMD leaders really know how to wow us with mediocrity. How about breaking Moore's Law since that's all just a bunch of marketing lies anyway. Just more ways to milk the noobs.

    I like my AMD 6-core but....They could have done better, I think.

    The real star of that line-up honestly is a 955BE for $81, overclocked of course it will be more than enough for most games and productivity usage.
