For what it's worth,
Pass Mark has the FX-6200 up on the CPU charts at upper-mid, lower higher. Warning: Passmark is extremely subjective testing but provides some insight.
The interesting thing is, Passmark puts this FX-6200 above the FX-8120 by a fair 11.44% margin pressumably because the FX-6200 is 3.8GHz/ core vs the 3.1Ghz/core for the 8120. That's 11.44% faster than a 4core for @$20.00 less. Also the FX-6200 scores show only a 1.75% lower difference than the FX-8150 but $70.00 cheaper, nice chunk of change back in the pocket!
I've always been a fan of less cores but higher clocks. I mean come-on, only @2-4 games are out there for more than 2 cores right now that I know of. And, hyper-threading is useless for games unless you play Oblivion or Civ V. At the time, my little I3-550 (at the time) did just fine on games at 3.2Ghz/core vs. the I7 (at the time) with only 2.2ghz per core and the i7 only used 2 cores on the games I played so really the i3 at 3.2ghz/core= 6.4Ghz total was better for me than the I7 at 4.4ghz total on strickly 2 core gaming.
So honestly, less cores (IMO) does not necessarly mean less power for gaming cause games are restrictive to 2-3 cores tops atm that I know of. So, I don't see what all this "OOOHH OHHH gotta have 8 cores" crap is all about if you're gonna be just gaming and medium-high web multitasking. Sure 8 cores if you're gonna do 20 things at once while Folding protiens at home, recording live TV and compling videos while using auto-cad and crap but honestly... since games are restricted to 2-3 cores, it's geek mass opinion frenzied CPU uneducated overkill IMO lol. Some of these "gotta have an 8core for BF3" gamers need to really question the salesman and read the game related technology and how the game works before they waste mommy a couple hundred bucks on an 8core just for gaming lol.
At $169.00 the FX-6200 is a great gaming platform chip esepcially since word is Microsoft fixed the single threading issue which 98%!!!!! of the games out there are single threaded!... again multithreading usless for guesstimated 98% of the games out there so (for the purely gaming aspect) it's a waste of money for the 8150 just because of one multithreaded core difference IMO.
Also, newegg reviewer says he's clocked his FX6200 at 4.4GHZ per core with more room to spare. If this 6core FX6200 truely is toping out the 4core FX-8120 by 11.44% and OC'ing very well; then, it might be the new chip for me... Sorry i5-2500k. Hello FX-6200
PS.. yes I'm assuming original poster IS a gamer... SCII profile pic and XFIRE CLUB quote on his post lol.
PSS... not having reviews on it after a while might actually be a good thing. Manfactures tend to not like having certain products in reviews constantly if they overshoot their other products too much. Example the EVGA 560ti 2win
smokes the GTX 580 by 33% and the new 7970 by 10-20FPS depending on RES. but you won't see that card included in hardly any other top cards benchmark reviews unless it's a specific 2win or 2win comparison review.
