[Eng] AMD rolls out two new Bulldozer chips, cuts price of the FX-8120 to celebrate

Two new Bulldozer-powered FX CPUs will join the pantheon of world-record beating chips in the company's constant fight against the forces of Intel. The quad-core FX-4170 has a 4.2GHz CPU with 4.3GHz Turbo mode (for more on AMD's Bulldozer architecture, see here) while the six-core FX-6200 has a 3.8GHz base clock and a 4.1GHz Turbo mode. Availability will vary by region as the company shuttles out the new silicon on a rolling timeline, but we'd start keeping our eyes peeled next time you're down the shops. To celebrate, AMD is hacking down the price of the top-end FX-8150 from $245 to $185 and you should see a similar price drop from outlets filter through shortly.

EDIT: It looks like there is a mistake in the article, the "FX-8150" should probably be FX-8120, which makes the price drop around $15 (~$200 to $185) according to other sources like Anandtech and TPU.

Anyway, price cuts on BD is very good, if they cut prices similarly across the board then the FX-chips may actually be recommendable.

Er, I tried to post, so if this is a double sorry.

OT: Glad the 8150 is priced more reasonably. It almost makes sense at $185.

But a 2.5% "turbo" - are you kidding me?

Also, has anyone noticed the mistake in the title? Not the post, but the title mentions the 8120 and the cut is for the 8150.

Better off losing some money instead of sitting on a massive stock of chips and seeing zero return.

That is not to say they are in fact losing money, as I have no clue. It is simply a statement that if this is for a loss, it's still a smaller loss than not selling the processors.
