Intel's extreme edition processors never get price cuts to get excited about. Common knowledge if you've been around awhile.

I guess if money is no object then I guess thats a whole different story.
Because the 980x was extreme when it was released and AMD had nothing that could compare. Whether it's still on sale or not is absolutely irrelevant. And I really don't see your point when the 8150 gets beaten by a cheaper quad core from Intel anyway.

We all know the 2600k/2500k own Bulldozer but lets give credit where credit it due on the 980x debate if u really don't want to be a fanboy.

The problem is there shouldn't be a 980x debate rolleyes.gif we all know the extreme editions of processors have horrid price/performance.

Yup 2 weeks... since before Pentium even existed and Alpha was king. Time sure flew by in those past 2 weeks.rolleyes.gif

Probably because of low supply. The top sellers on newegg are still 2500k and 2600k with third place going to x6 1100T.

The reality is the FX CPUs work just fine, OC well and scale well, so they are a good choice for many people.

The haters are gonna hate no matter what. Hating doesn't change anything. People buy what makes them happy not what an Intel fanbois tells them to buy.

Actually the reality is Thubans are a better choice. Thubans overclock well and use much less power. Not to mention it scales better, has better IPC, and can be had at a cheaper price point.

Its true, thubans have 7 watts less at load than the 8120....

But have 23 more watts at idle.... wait what?

Yea try overclocking that BD and see how much power it consumes.

I just find it funny that some people think Intel can do no wrong but go out of their way to bash AMD.
The main argument is that
"It doesn't matter that AMD's processor goes head to head the 990x, its the "Extreme" line.
How does that not matter to someone on some level especially when we are talking a 60 percent price difference against performace? So because it is "Extreme" and performs almost to the level of a $250 processor that it should never be questioned because
"thats just the way its been", sounds like alot of things in history that needed to change when people said that.

There is a point where you get diminishing returns where the money invested is not worth the performance that you receive this is different for everyone, i really am trying not to turn this into and amd vs intel thing rolleyes.gif. The point is you are comparing a current gen cpu against a previous gen cpu. Obviously at this point in time the current gen one will give you more performance than the older at a lower cost. You clearly state that it is placed between a current gen i5 and i7 and it is priced accordingly (talking about a 8150). My point is if you want to gripe about the 980-990x being badly priced in comparison to the 8150 however the current lineup of processes from intel cost the same and are 12-15% faster. Compare it to the 2600k which is priced a modest $60 more and is actually meant to compete with bulldozer. No one buys a 1000 dollar processor and expects it to have linearly better performance than a 2-300 dolllar one.
