AMD 8xxx actual specs(On amd website)

People who buy pre-builts the majority of the time don't know whats in the machine, all they will see if the "next-gen" advertising and be wowed by it.
Though admittedly I was fooled for a bit, they could have at least used different product numbers to differentiate from what is really going to be available.
