AMD FX-Series Prices Leaked, FX-8150 Sells for $245 (178 Euros)

With less than a month to go until the release of AMD's FX-Series processors, all the secrets surrounding these CPUs have now been unveiled, as the pricing of these chips was recently leaked together with their official release date.

Just as other rumors have announced, the AMD FX-Series processors will arrive in about a month from now, on October 12 to be more exact.

The initial processor lineup will include at least three models, the highest performing of these being the FX-8150, which Donanim Haber has found out will retail for $245 US, or about 178 Euros. This places the high-end Bulldozer CPU right between the $216 Intel Core i5 2500K and the $317 Core i7 2600K. 

Specs wise, the FX-8150 packs eight computing cores with a base clock speed of 3.6GHz and a maximum Turbo frequency of 4.2GHz as well as 8MB of fast Level 3 cache memory.

Many of these specifications are also shared by its smaller brother, the FX-8120, but this chip has to settle with a slower 3.1GHz base and 4.0GHz Turbo operating frequencies.

Pricing for the FX-8120 has been set at $205, making it just as expensive as the non-K version of the Core i5-2500.

Moving to the third CPU to get priced today, the FX-6100, this will come as a direct replacement for the current Phenom II X6 1100T and will be listed at $175.

Later this year, AMD is expected to add to its FX-Series lineup new quad-core models from the FX-4100 range, which rumors suggest will be followed by a family-wide refresh in the first quarter of 2012.

All the AMD FX-Series processors listed above include a dual-channel DDR3-1866 memory controller, 8MB of Level 3 cache and are compatible with motherboards using the AM3+ socket.
