When a man loves a... CPU
Can't keep his mind on nothin' else.
He'd trade the world
For a good thing he's found.
If it is bad, he can't see it
It can do no wrong.
Turn his back on his best friend
If he puts it down...

Thats exactly what I was saying. Just not worth the price they are trying to charge at launch.

The NDA should lift in around 3 hours.

Enthusiast reviews made in that short of a time wont get a significant amount of views and wont affect the big sites...

3 hours ? Fair enough, lunch time in Europe, beginning of the day on the other side of the Atlantic.

I'm actually quite interested in the future benefits if HSA gets widely supported. It'd be silly if it didn't because this would even help Intel in the long run since they've hit a bit of a fabrication wall.under the x86 arch.

I love how everyone/most of you are crying about the price...

It is a launch price and retailers expect high demand thus it is priced at 180$ yet you people don't think about that it has advantages and when you do you are impatient thus by your logic when AMD released 64 bit CPU then nobody should bought it nor when Intel Core 2 Duo was out because there were little to no 64 bit software.... Jesus....

The Athlon 64 was faster than anything Intel was offering, even running 32-bit applications; Intel's Core 2 Duo was a massive improvement over their Pentium D lineup and depending on the model even a good upgrade over the Athlon 64 X2 lineup, and none of it had to do with running a 64-bit OS and software.

This launch on the other hand looks like a bit meh because apparently (let's wait and see in a few hours) the CPU part is not better than the A10-6800K and because the GPU part is bottlenecked by the DDR3 memory interface, as was expected. We already know that a Radeon HD 7750 with DDR3 is bottlenecked, let alone one that has to share the memory bandwidth with the CPU part. Of course, a unified memory controller (HUMA) and the fact the GPU and CPU are next to each other, minimizing latency, should help mitigate things, but you can't beat the sheer memory bandwidth of the dedicated 128-bit GDDR5 memory interface on the HD 7750. You don't see people excited about a Radeon HD 7750 with DDR3 or a Nvidia GT 640 on an enthusiast site, do you ?

So, in the end, the appeal of this is more to see how the Steamroller cores perform, and apparently they don't perform much better than Richland. Perhaps if they came with L3 cache, but we are looking at a budget offering, so final conclusions on what the architecture can really deliver may have to be postponed until later.

For all you from the UK, the only place i can see these in stock are dabs.com, but you will have to pay a hefty £129.99 equivalent to $213.

When you can get a fx 8320 for £109.

Seems like a lot of sites are reviewing the A8 7600 but not the A10 7850k...
