I'm gonna go with the 6 core cuz I usually upgrade my cpu every 4-5 years and I want it to be more future proof.

So about 69% of voters so far say they will grab a Bulldozer chip upon release as long as it is a win.

The question to your poll is...

Which AMD FX Cpu will you be getting!?

You're surprised that 69% of voters are choosing the AMD CPU?

Shouldn't the results be 100% for FX chips?

I didn't vote 'cuz I have to see what the real performance will be, if the AMD FX 8130P is better than the 2600K, that's the one I'm going for my 2nd rig.

After all, it should only be some $50 more expensive than the Six-Core.
I don't know how much validity there is to this:

Check out the 1st bullet point.
  • Unlock hidden CPU cores
  • Adjust CPU clocks (up to 8)
  • Adjust CPU multiplier
  • Adjust the CPU voltage
  • Adjust memory speed
  • Adjust memory voltage.

Im surprised that the percentage isnt higher. Well about 84% of voters are going AMD FX, according to the poll, but only about 68% now, are saying they will buy the AMD FX chips about to release.

Also surprising. When all you hear is no more then 4 cores are needed for gaming. I dont believe the poll results will reflect actual sales.

All the rumours suggest that the 8130P will be priced ~the same as a 2600K, not expensive compared to Intels high end. Plus this is one small poll, on one small forum, inhabited by people who go for the faster cpu's.

I'll wait for Q4, my quad is more then enough right now. I will wait until the new chips lower the prices of the initial set.
In fact i might wait until next year.

I will most likely be running the 6 core version with my 890FXA-GD70.. I really do not need 8 cores, besides it just seems odd.. Its not like I am trying to serve up my neighborhood either Or am I?

Yeah, what about it?

AM3+ is compatable with AM3 cpu's, so you can unlock a triple core to a quad core, nothing revolutionary there.

It doesn't say "Unlock hidden FX Bulldozer CPU cores".
