8 core sells--- Newegg sold out

All 8-core AMD FX chips have been sold out. See http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007671%20600213783&IsNodeId=1&name=Zambezi

Given the choice between i7 2600k and the AMD FX 8-core processor, many have no hesitation to choose the 8 core chip. Eight is 2x of four. Simple math.

It is glorious to have eight cores.

A FX 8150 user noted that the FX is faster than i7, and I copied it here despite the expectation that it will hurt Intel fanbois' feelings:

Pros: 8 true cores. Yes, some use shared resources, but it is still 8 cores. Like another review I just read; You can do much more with more cores.

Fast! Handbrake encoding is crazy fast. This so far has beat my friends I7 2600K by almost 100 FPS in Handbrake.

Cons: I own zero stock in AMD.

As noted before, the AMD FX 8150 is 20% faster than Intel i7 980X in the CPU Hash benchmark.

At AMDZone, a user made the choice between AMD and Intel a moral issue, because "[e]ach time you buy an intel processor you are supporting a criminal who has enough money to buy its way out of a courtroom."

No doubt. Intel copied the AMD64, multi-core and Direct Connect architecture from AMD and is laughing to the bank with all these AMD innovations.

BTW, I bought a HP dm1z running the E450 APU today to show my support for AMD.

They are sold out because Global Foundaries 32nm yeild is utter shit...

Why? Because AMD couldn't execute their way out of a hole in the ground with a rope dangling in front of them...

Sharikou,

I called Newegg and they did not get a lot of FX inventory from AMD. So selling out of a handful of processors that AMD can't make because its yields suck is nothing to be bragging about. On the contrary: it is a serious problem for AMD.

Showing a handful of cherrypicked scores are not going to make any difference to the big issue of poor yields, huge power consumption and lack of a competitive roadmap to make AMD any real profits to sustain it.

AMD is getting squeezed by Intel and by ARM. It is already marginalized and it will keep getting worse.

AMD FX makes it pretty compelling to osbourne AMD in favor of Intel midrange processors.

FX from AMD is a big fail, just like you, and the legions of fanboys that follow AMD who are now destroyed.

AMDZone? Quoting a cesspool of AMD rabid fanbois is supposed to lend credibility to your empty rant?

AMD copied x86. It even copied its microcode. Any real technology "journalist" knows the truth.

Fragged again, dumb ass. Every time AMD looks to deliver below expectations, you come out of your closet to lie and damage control.

It's not working very well this time. It's a giant and viral super "frag".

LMAO

Remember only in Sharikook land is selling out 50 processors a bit deal.

And seriously? Quoting from AMDZone???

You are getting even lower down the list.

Newegg got less than 100 cpu's from AMD.

Global Foundries 32nm yeilds are terrible. AMD using outdated technology on 32nm process = slow, hot CPU that only manages slight wins in benchmarks everyday consumers don't care about.

Bulldozer server CPU's are slow clocked to keep heat and power consumption down - very few tier 1 manufacturers are designing systems around sub-standard AMD Opterons as there is no customer demand. Cray did not order their Opterons - AMD gave them to them so the could jump up and down and go "Look see! See what we can do?!?!" Cray engineers are designing the next generation super-computers around upcoming Intel CPU's because they know that AMD is now a bit player at best...

Sharikou is rumored to be looking for a job at the local McDonalds or Burger King...they won't hire him because he smells of raw sewage and has semen stains on his back...

Buying AMD as a moral issue??? Are you that desperate and stupid?

Stop AMD-fanboy idiocy: Mention the Intel Timna processor

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Timna/

Intel Timna, a processor with an integrated memory controller, were rolling off Intel assembly lines back in the year 2000 before it was cancelled. It also had integrated graphics incorporated, far before AMD had any plans about "Fusion".

It's funny the first few times reading moronic comments like "Intel copied AMD" and "AMD is the one that innovates" but I think enough is enough.

They don't count for Timna because it never came to market or sold....never mind that Intel actually did it first.

It would probably be futile to mention to Inteltards that something called Cyrix mediaGX was made in 1997, and actually hit the market instead been vaporware

Funny now that you mentioned that - guess who BOUGHT that technology. AMD.

See here's the problems - everything AMD does - x86, Graphics, their much vaunted integrated mem controller, integrated graphics - was DONE before. Whether it be by Intel or Cyrix or ATI.

AMD - Copycatting everyone since 1982.

LOL! Here is your math:

Problem with GF yields = low supply = sold out = big AMD win (GO BUY STOCKS QUICK)

Good blog.

I was wondering whether to buy 2500K or FX-8150, your real world benchmark swayed me to go Bulldozer. I don't game, and I don't care about game performance, but application performance is stellar. Plus, I get this wicked awesome water cooler.

Good job, Sharikou, keep that up. Don't let others believe AMD is good at nothing, because it is bunch of crap.

Should have wiped your ass with your money. Would have been better served.

Actually, in apps, it's somewhere between 2500K and 2600K, so it's hardly a waste.

But I guess those who scream the loudest about how much BD fails, are gamers, which is backed up by tests.

Then again, I wouldn't bother spending so much money just to play newest games at max details in FullHD, but that's just me.
