AMD needs to make up their minds on their different brands.

I think it is funny how much extra Intel/AMD charge for their high end CPUs when (typically) just a small amount of OCing will make their budget brand CPUs perform almost as well. When you take in the price/performance ratio they outshine the high ends more often than not.

it's good to see AMD bring back the FX which was their high performance label. AMD is a great chip maker with really affordable prices as I have had plenty of them in my time.

But unfortunately bout time AMD releases Bulldozer I'll be looking to upgrade my Core i5 2500k to 2600k or socket 2011. AMD has to move quicker if they want to really "act like" they are competing with Intel.

Intel's new 3d transistor tech looks very interesting!
