AMD 8-Core Bulldozer CPU Same Price as Intel 2600K

Jul 29, 2011

AMD announced that its new line of CPU’s will be competitively priced to the current generation of Intel processors, which are quad cores. Said to be priced at $300, not reaching higher than $320 for the high end chip, AMD has always been a budget build favorite and now it seems like that will continue due to the sheer power that you will be able to crank out of the 8-Core monster code-named Bulldozer. While official benchmarks have not been released to see how it stacks up against the 4-core, 2 thread per core 2600K competitor from Intel, we can assume that the race will be extremely close as always.
