They always do that. After a couple days to a couple weeks they will settle down on the price. As of now they are the only ones I can find that are selling them to us in the states.

I'm hoping that there are follow up reviews sometime for more information. I love the direct comparisons to BD / i3 / i5 / i7, but I'm curious as to memory scaling, cpu/nb scaling, and module/core scaling.
I'm pleased overall with PD over BD. This at least gives me an upgrade option. I'm wishing AMD would let us know if Steamroller will be compatible with 990FX chipsets or if it will require a new motherboard.... If I can get the next generation processor for a current MB again, it would be a solid investment.

Steamroller will be compatible with AM3+ boards. Excavator will not, only with FM2.

I suppose Steamroller will be compatible with the next socket (AM4?). That will make a good upgrade path for us that have an AM3+ board.

My point of view is that 8350 gives you the 80-85 % performance of a 3770k with 60 % of his price. And i dont believe someone buys a module cpu and expect to win against a traditional core with high ipc and speed in gaming,from the moment that the most games is poorly optimized and use the maximum 2 threads. You can gaming just fine with this cpu but not as fast as the intel's offering though.

If AMD with few tweaks can provided 15% increase performance i would imagine that SR would be interesting.

Do we really want 3 iterations of FX on one socket? Surely it will limit the architecture on what is, lets be honest, a less than overwhelming architecture to begin with.

The only major difference between the two is if you are running it on a machine that cant overclock. I wouldn't say the 8350's are binned either since the 8320's have a very similar turbo.
Newegg is Newegg, they almost always get everything the first day.

This is my theory. Wait a bit for prices to drop then go for the 8320 full water cooling loop should allow 5ghz really or at least 4.5ghz

I'm actually going to wait till my 8350 arrives to do my own testing. These reviews are all over the place. I want some Max oc vs Max oc on water results

Somone had posted a link showing the UD3 getting an update earlier. I wouldn't see why the big G wouldn't update that board along with it's brothers.

Well. Not blowing my socks off but overall it seems to be decent value. No real competitor to the i5 ofc, considering that both seem to do about 4.8 GHz with reasonably high probability under decent cooling, but it kinda holds its ground in some areas while slipping in other (for floating point it afterall is for all practical purposes a 4 core or module chip, same as i5)
http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/701?vs=698
Yeah thats 8320 as its only 100 mhz above i5 so easier to compare at a glance considering both OC to about the same level.

Seems like not worth the upgrade for me for now with 1055T at 3.9 GHz - I kinda tend to run FP heavy loads so I benefit more from 6 FP cores than from 4 higher clocked ones from the new chip. But for integer heavy loads its cheaper than i5 and seems to do a bit better although still consuming substantially more power. For the reference about 25W difference running 24/7 means about 220 kWh more consumed per year which can mean substantial powerbill in some parts of the world.

Agree. I didn't liked that decision neither.

I think it's a better idea to replace the socket to not be limited and gain all the benefits from the architectural changes, also, they need to replace the chipset ASAP to improve their multi-gpu performance. It's pretty sad to have a GPU division where their products perform better on the competition.
