Sadly? Only a few people would buy an 8350 that's been overclocked for 5x the price. This is more pointless than the $1000 intel processors.

AMD typically does very well in price v performance. It would be pretty exciting if the 9000 series actually held their own in their respective price ranges.

Unless there are architectural changes in these chips, there really isn't any logic in charging a hundreds of dollars for a factory overclock.

Also, inflated retail prices do not mean that these prices are true to the MSRP of these chips.

So, the best binned chips with a hefty factory overclock. I don't want to go Intel for my next build . . . but it's a bit difficult to say no to superior performance and energy efficiency with what is, realistically, only a small premium (for the mainstream lines, not E, i7, etc.)

That TDP is insane, though. I find it difficult to believe even enthusiasts would find that acceptable.

These prices are bogus, these chips will fall between $200-$300. The FX8350 can be had for $200, slap a $100 closed loop water cooling and you have your 5ghz.

What the heck is wrong with AMD???? What are they even thinking anymore? There entire claim to fame is there lower prices with high performance. Why would someone pick this over a Intel Extreme? There almost the same exact price and the Intel has a proven track record. AMD should have released this thing in the 250-400 dollar range. Make it a alternative to Intel's I5 midrange performance chips. Then they could have wiped the floor with Intel. Instead they have this over priced chip to compete with Intel who sadly dominates the chip market right now.

look i got 3 kg air cooler to run this cpu and 12.000 btu air to keep my room with suficient temps to make me cool... less than 60ºc :) or i will die!

ouch that price really hurts cannot say who this would be for a high power using cpu probably running quite hot and probably just a small amount of performance increase from the previous piledriver processors for a lot more money

If the price is not right though and a lot cheaper then i may be tempted but even then the tdp may make me thinkg

I think i may have to replace my AM3+ motherboard now

At that price I would likely buy a LGA 2011 i7 6-Core. 220W, and that kind of pricing is ridiculous. If benchmarks show that it beats i7's then great but I would rather get an 8XXX Series FX and overclock it myself.

The TDP is insane but people are willing to take that kind of TDP for the graphics engine???

If the performance outguns I7 big then I think it's worth it , it's no different than grabbing a 7990, IMHO.

But then again I can't see it outgunning an i7

A new benchmark is being introduced for this CPU. It's the egg cooking benchmark (time - shorter is better). I think this CPU should be substantially better than any competition on that one :)

Ok....so I'm strictly AMD all around. This ones seems stupid to me though. I have an 8350@ 4.7Ghz and its cooled by a cooler master 212+. The only reason I cant go higher is the cooling. It can handle it but right at the limit.. and I can pretty much guarantee its at least 200 watts, you should feel the heat come off this thing! So yeah its just a well binned processor with a high overclock. Your going to need a high end mobo and cooling to handle it and it doesn't seem very practical
