Not many surprises but I've been waiting for a long, long time for this. I hope this is just the first step to a more competitive AMD.

Looks like solid chips, but I'll admit that the price point isn't low enough to compete in the gaming world with Intel.

I am rather curious how the FX-4100 will stack up against the current Phenom II X4 chips.

And even though the FX is a slight disappointment, I am rather impressed by the Windows 8 benchmarks. Having said that, by the time Windows 8 is ready for release I'm sure Intel will have an even better solution.

[citation][nom]killerclick[/nom]As I said before, it won't come close to beating Intel in performance or price. Now let's hear the fanboys whine.[/citation]

Everyone should cry, even the Intel fanboys, this is bad news for everyone, now Intel has absolutely no incentive to lower prices or accelerate Ivy Bridge.

Intel shouldn't lower prices, they should raise them. I'll gladly pay more to reward competent product development and nothing would please me more than AMD going down in flames for all their flops in the past 5 years. Intel doesn't need AMD to push them forward.

Waaaahhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!

Bah, well, been with AMD since my first pc like 8 years ago...Guess I'll be going intel for the first time ever especially since I can get an overkill cpu for just 300 bucks. Hell that's how much I payed for my phenom II 955...

Funny, how if you enter to win the test rig it says

"Please Enter The Text Exactly As Displayed"

and proceeds to give you a basic math problem. Yet, if you follow directions and enter it exactly as displayed it says it says it failed and you may not be human. But if you ignore the directions and solve the basic math problem and enter the answer, it lets you enter.

Fail.
