Estimated Price for a 8 core FX (bulldozer)? - Page 4  

post #31 of 80
PM me if you know if these will work on AM3 boards..

Lol @ people saying the Zambezi's X6 will be in the low $200s.

All the high end Thuban(s) chips debuted at that price range even though AMD knew very well that Intel had better offerings in that bracket (i5 750/760).

~$300/$350 seems more likely IMO (the 1090T debuted @ $290 IIRC).

X8, who knows?... mid $400s/$500 would be my guess.

One thing's for sure, If Bulldozer lives up to the hype, and I hope it does, AMD's gonna charge us good and sweet for them.

You got proof for that? The even crappier HD 2000 found on the i3-2100 can play 1080p and a lot of folks are using it for their new HTPC builds.

Was true but Z68 was released yesterday (May 11) and it doesn't carry a high premium over H67.

That's only if it lives up to the hype, no? I'm not saying it wouldn't but until we see some actual benchmarks, I'm keeping my expectations within reason.

I'm not sure if the following slide is fake or not but looking at the PCMark Vantage part, 8-core Bulldozer is just a bit better than the i7-2600K

Not necessarily.

I mean, and it's worth mentioning this again, the 1090T debuted @ a whopping ~$300 price tag even though everyone and their mother knew (especially AMD) that it wasn't going to be as fast as Intel's offerings in that bracket (only showing an advantage in extremely highly threaded applications).

Taking that into account, and considering that this is a completely-from-the ground-up new architecture (not like Thuban), it makes sense for them to raise prices once again for this platform.

There will be 4 BD CPUs:
FX-4110 - 4-core/2-module. I estimate this will launch $150.
FX-6110 - 6 core/3-module active. I estimate this will launch at $200-250
FX-8110 - 8 core/4-module. My estimate: $300 range
FX-8130P - 8 core/4-module, 125W TDP, higher clock speed. My estimate: $400 or more

I think they are all black edition

Yeah, and the 1090T quickly dropped in price. In fairness, the 1090T was faster than the i7-930 (apparent in heavily multi-threaded apps). It just so happens most applications aren't programmed to take advantage of all 6 cores.

AMD could raise the price on Bulldozer. However, few people actually buy processors costing $400~500. I think this time, they'd rather sell a lot of processors at $300~350 (and at that price, I have a feeling the FX-8000 will sell like hotcakes) than a few at $500.

I think the new BD chips will have similar release pricing to the following:
FX-4110 ~ 970 BE
FX-6110 ~ 1055T
FX-8110 ~ 1090T BE

Nah, I think the "P" version is the new Black Edition. I do agree with your estimated pricing, though.

Yeah, no. You're completely lacking an outlook or knowledge of the current situation. This is how it's gonna be priced, according to system price:

AMD FX 8-core: $299-319
AMD FX 6-core: $199-229
AMD FX 4-core: $149-179

And the whole reason they won't price it high is because of the die size. Just because it's a new architecture doesn't automatically mean higher prices.

Oh, and Thuban gave a good whooping in any multi-threaded app to Lynnfield i5s.

If clock for clock it is little slower (5%ish) than SB then I expect the 8 core P version to be about $350 since AMD will charge a bit for the extra cores.

If the IPC is the same or better than SB then I think the 8 core P will start to approach $450+.

It won't if the system price is $700. It'll be in the $300-320 neighborhood.
