FX AMD FX Series prices revealed   listed for pre order

The first AMD FX CPUs have shown up for pre-order at Shopblt.com. The three SKUs listed are FX-8150, FX-8120 and FX-6100 priced at $266, $222 and $189 respectively. The good news is that the pricing is lower than expected – previously rumoured to be in the $300 to $320 range for the top CPU. The bad news is that such pricing suggests the FX-8150 is unlikely to beat Core i7 2600 in many situations.

As always, pre-order prices are normally higher than launch prices. Hence, we can expect the FX CPUs to sell for even lesser. 

The three CPUs are much the same as revealed by Gigabyte earlier. FX-6100 and FX-8150 have a TDP of 95W and 125W respectively. However, FX-8120 has a TDP of 125W at launch, while a future revision will drop the TDP of FX-8120 down to 95W. There's no indication of shipping dates as of now.
