I wouldn't call it garbage, it's a good upgrade for those that have compatible motherboards, but yea, it's price/performance isn't great, and it's heat efficiency for its performance is just terrible.

I think most people knew the leaks were right, you don't get leaks from 20 different sources all lying with the same results in some big conspiracy against AMD. Like you said, it's only an issue for those die-hard fanboys who refused to believe AMD could release a CPU that wasn't going to compete with Intel's best CPUs.

It's sad news though, I was hoping against hope that AMD would pull something out of their sleeve. Now I'm afraid that it'll be another couple of years before AMD has time to release something new that'll stand a chance, but maybe we'll get lucky and that won't happen. As it stands right now AMD's new CPUs don't stack up to 9-month old Intel CPUs, so I'd say they're at least a year behind Intel.

The power consumption figures I am seeing makes my head explode. I wish the product were more impressive so that Intel would be motivated to release Ivy bridge more quickly.

Side-note: For AMD to sell me a BD proc it would have to sport two modules, run at 65w, and come in under $100

Usario where you at? Jk.

This is fail. You could say it's a good CPU when overclocked, but the power consumption. MOTHEROFGOD.JPG

Terrible clock for clock performance, a whole lot of nothing @ high frequency, and ridiculous heat and power consumption(not even ridiculous, unacceptable)

Netburst all over? Yes? Yes? Yes.

Okay, so it's a better workstation cpu than the i5 2500k, but that's about it. It seems like the 2500k is a much better option for most people.

Those CPUs should be price lower. I rather get 2500k then the 8150.
