Now your 5ghz FX chip is as good as a $1000 chip!!!!
But seriously, that's about the point of this chip.
On the bright side, AMD solved the problem of reviewers comparing an AMD chip that costs half as much as the Intel and then declaring the $350 Intel is better than the $180 AMD by making all the CPUs $1000. Now the $1000 AMD chip will just lose to a $1000 Intel instead of the $180 AMD chip losing to the $350 Intel and everyone going "LOL AMD SUXXXX"
I just am kind of laughing because I don't see people really buying these, but it's basically trolling every review site that pulls the "AMD lost to $350 chip when the AMD costs $180, AMD SUCKS!"
I can't wait to read the Anandtech review, probably going to be a bunch of uncomfortable fanboys acting insecure in a "professional" review.
