No idea. But Im gonna guess the 8 core goes for $299 out of the shoot. 6 core $239 and 4 core $199.

in the unlikely event that it performs better than X58 and even sandybridge (core for core) expect some high prices

Guesstimate the cpu price from the total system price.

That makes my guesstimates look pretty good.

Or $329 for 8, $269 for 6 and $229 for 4 cores.

Guess we should wait to see real performance benchmarks first, there will be many CPUs to fill in most price gaps tho. Still, AMD won't compete with higher price than SB if its @ same performance, they were always the best @ performance/price (excl. OCing).

They'll be forced to sell them around the same price as Intel's SB CPU's unless BD outrperformes it by a large margin.

If those prices are close to the real thing I might consider buying one if it's true that they are compatible with some AM3 MB. If not they will have to hold their own with intel for me to consider going with AMD again even though I love 'em

Guys its $700+ and the 4 core chip is right at $700 to $700+.

I think you may need to consider both the 6 core and the 8 core chip are well into the $700+ range for the entire system.

Which is an incredibly dumb way to state it, I don't even think you can put together a i5 complete system for $700 can you?

I mean whats your gpu going to be a 9800GT for $50 with a low end $100 board and crappy PSU? What about screen.

I'd take that graph with a grain of salt.

Im pretty sure the 'system prize' that AMD refers to in this pic consists of CPU + Mobo + RAM, nothing more.
