And I bet it won't. If you follow AMD pricing policy in the last couple years, they are real cheap, even when they update the entire line.

I'll be damned. I thought AMD was more expensive than Intel as of a few years ago. Did they drop prices after Bulldozer flopped?
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 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).

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?
