Yeh AMD releases new CPU's

But they completely get crushed by Core i5 2500k and Core i7 2600K

The AMD FX 8150 cost more than a Core i5 2500k but the Core i5 2500K kills it in like 95% of the Benchmarks.

Rumor is the AMD FX-8150 is more of a server CPu than a high performing desktop CPU so I'll be waiting on those Benchmarks to see but as of right now a Core i5 2500k at $200 looks way better than a AMD FX-8150 at $250
