Server grade tech coming to the masses.
Today AMD finally launched their long awaited FX series performance CPUs. The new FX series comes in three forms, the FX 4100 series which is a quad core processor, the FX-6100 which is their hexa core processor and the FX-8120 and FX-8150 CPUs which are their flagship octa core processors.
AMD pegs the FX-8150 to the Intel Core i7-2600K and i7-980X in terms of performance in multi-threaded applications and games. With all CPUs unlocked and backwards compatible with AM3+ motherboards, AMD suggests the system price to be very low compared to Intel solutions, which certainly looks to be the case.
Those who want to see what’s next in the pipelines may want to look at the image below and…wait I guess.
Look out for our review next week where we go in-depth with the FX-8150 and see how far we can overclock this behemoth.
