You need to read up on AMD's new turbo implementation. If they are not lying, which I highly doubt, the turbo they list is using all of the cores available. It is TDP limited, OC'ing is supposed to be TDP limited as well, though I'm sure you can turn that off with the right BIOS. They have stated many many times that Turbo 2.0 will use all cores.

This is from from being official, the OP that is. Still coming from that trash site that has post up numerous rumors. So many that they have contradicted themselves with every other "news" article.

Does any one know the launch prices yet or is it still all rumours?

NO. You are wrong. I never said shutting off cores via the bios. The CPU will clock higher than the max all cores running speed IF it stays within the TDP, this fact has been known for a long time now.

The 8150 should be right around 300 according to Amd so let's say 30 dollars more for the 8170

Reading through the link posted above from beers, you will see it in plain writing:

Quote:
*For illustrative purposes only; not to scale

Some of the benefits of AMD Turbo CORE include:

Up to 500MHz of additional clock speed available with all cores active. This means even with 16 cores active with server workloads, all cores can boost at the same time. For those customers that want to maximize their performance, they now have the tools to do it.
Even higher boost states available with half of the cores active. We’re not stating exactly how high processors can boost with AMD Turbo CORE, but obviously if there is room for up to 500MHz with all cores active, fewer active cores would obviously mean less power, and more headroom to recapture with AMD Turbo CORE. At launch you will see processors marketed with a base and a maximum frequency, base will reflect the actual clock speed on the processor and max will reflect the highest AMD Turbo CORE state.
AMD Turbo CORE is deterministic, governed by power draw, not temperature as other competing products are. This means that even in warmer climates you’ll be able to take advantage of that extra headroom if you choose. This helps ensure a max frequency is workload dependent, making it more consistent and repeatable.
In the next sentence after the bold, it says they will not be declaring how much more it can ramp up with cores not active as it will be too hard to determine at any given time. It will be dependent on the workload, but it could be an extra 100Mhz or 500 more, who knows. It is clear that it will never be less than 500Mhz with all cores active though.

$300 could be any one of the 8 core models.

Well, for $300USD it doesn't looks bad at all. I'll consider it.
