    Let's see what AMD has to offer with the FX series. If it doesn't, at least, keep up with the i7 980x, then most will assume it's not good.

    However, I think if people are reasonable, this CPU line could be really good. Unless you're into multimedia designing and really pushing the CPU with other calculative programs, even the i7 could be considered overboard.

    Basically, if you're just a gamer, then this should be quite good indeed. :)

    I just had a day dream of the glory days of my FX60....that was a chip!

    Anyway, the FX series was great when they were kicking butt but unless they do something by leaps and bounds I think they are insulting the FX series by bringing it back to a non king of the hill chip.

    I definitely agree with you. FX is from when AMD was smearing Intel. If they just bring it back as a name for "Black Edition unlocked" that is sad. But, if FX is the slayer of old I will be glad to give AMD another full paycheck!

    Waiting for reviews. If good, I'll do a full upgrade on my rig, lots of things need to be upgraded anyway :D Still confused tho whether I'll get the 1st gen of Bulldozer or the enhanced version :S Hope they priced it right :D

    If the FX series are able to overclock to 4GHz safely with moderate temps, then I'm surely buying it...

    Time for upgrade for me then....:)
