IGN: The World's First 8-Core CPU Detailed

Last month, AMD earned a Guinness World Record for highest clocking speed ever recorded with its forthcoming 8-core CPU, code-named Bulldozer. Now, however, the company has pulled back the curtain on the new multicore processor line, which will come in four varieties, ranging from a $115 entry-level model to a $245 high-end configuration.

Intel > AMD
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
