if this performs between 2500 and 2600, pfff, its a def winner, cmon, 8cores for $220? whats there to cry about? just knowing that I HAVE 8 FREAKING CORES WORKING FOR ME IS WORTH THE 220! i dont think anyone has ever expected the BD to beat SB at all..but atleast somewhere close/ inbetween. and looks like///hopefully this will be true when its released. =)
Since many applications/games don't use all cores, even i5 2500 should beat FX-8150 in many cases.
