    I agree, Intel are having a laugh. $330-350? Hmm, so you're saying i could pay $80-100 more for my processor, and it will be only marginally better? Well then.

    I've been using AMD for a couple years now, and I'm ready to switch back to Intel. AMD just hasn't been able to compete, and unfortunately I don't think their new architecture will be able to stand up against Intel either.
  5. "Intel is apparently cherry picking the best of the best of its Sandy Bridge cores" ,yeah right....I'm calling a boat load of BS!
  6. I don't know, maybe the 2700k is better than the fx, but why do you need that much extra power?, with eight cores at $200, the fx looks excellent, even if you think in gaming or convert videos.
    If you do video editing for living or you are gamming with multiple monitors maybe it is worth it.
  7. yea intel is charging too much and 70$ does make a difference in todays economy so hopefully

    The Toyota Prius might be a popular car, but I would much rather sit behind the wheel of a Mercedes-Benz.

    Prius is one ugly beast, personally I'd rather be behind the wheel of a SLS ;). And to Guest #3, some times less is more, so more cores on AMD's BD may not mean much in real world anyway.

    *When* AMD releases these chips, we'll see the benchmarks of retail products, and the price vs performance of both sides will become very apparent.

    What's the point of getting so worked up about something that can be quantitatively determined?
  11. prius is cool! its future...and amd is better at the same money.
    intel is like apple, expensive crap, only at extreme is better(intel).
  12. when will the battle between sandy bridge-e vs bulldozer happens? :D

    /implying bulldozer will be competing with Intel's LGA 2011 chips.
  14. Bulldozer lost, reviews seen so far they have a hard time competing with their own chips let alone intels.

    $US 331 is the apparent price. A couple of days ago I would have said this would possibly mean that this would compress 2600 and 2600K pricing. Fairly unlikely in light of current events.

    D2 rev/stepping ( same as 2500K/2600K )
