Cool Liano/Zambezi CPUs price leaked!

We are now close to the launch of Zambezi CPUs, the price of the CPUs leaked.

4 core FX-4110 $190/£117
6 core FX-6110 $240/£147
8 core FX-8110 $290/£178
8 core FX-8130P $320/£196

http://translate.google.com/translat...-bilgileri.htm

AMD cutted CPUs price a while ago, you can find Phenom II X4 955 for nearly £80 as AMD are in processing to retire Athlon II and Phenom II CPUs line for the arrival of Zambezi and Fusion Liano CPUs.

It great to see Zambezi will use the same price range to ceased fears that it would be more expensive so actually it will be cheaper than current mainstream Sandy Bridge CPUs. High end Sandy Bridge E will expect to be bloody expensive than mainstream Sandy Bridge CPUs.

Nothing is confirmed here, these prices are rumours.

It will be launch on 7 June 2011 at Computex accorded to leaked Gigabyte slide.

http://lensfire.blogspot.com/2011/04...-date-new.html

That almost 2 weeks away.

Edit: Either Gigabyte slide made a typo with Computex 2011 date as Computex open on 31 May and close on 4 June 2011 or Computex decided to change the date.

AMD announced they will launch FX series CPUs at E3 on 7 June instead.

AMD needs to freaking confirm something already!

I wouldn't really call them low... $320 USD is roughly the same as an i7 2600k.

Nah, something being more expensive doesn't always equate to it being better... that's just a stupid assumption we tend to make (although this depends on a given individual's opinion) and something keeps us (sometimes, not always) from having some interesting products in favor of the 'usual' products (more expensive and with more 'reputation').

So would you feel more comfortable if that CPU costed $550? That's just nonsense... this is not a I-throw-myself-out-for-a-couple-of-dollars appreciation scale but come on... $300 for the (supposed) top-of-the-line AMD offering is awesome (and I even think it's a bit more expensive than their last CPU line was, which makes me even more assured my purchase of an i5 2500 will be even more 'justified' haha).

I have a hard time believing that AMD likes to sell a killer product that low. They didn't do that the last time when they had a killer CPU (AMD X2 4800+ and FX series).
Of course Intel put a lot of pressure on the competition with their nicely performing new low end and mid range line up this year. But this is a "8 Core" CPU with high Turbo modes. It should blow away a normal Sandy Bridge. Why not sell it at a higher price?
It seems strange...
Not that strange... it's well known AMD is at a second place, so maybe it's part of their strategy... for this generation, they will offer us a nice product at a (relatively) low price and if they have something up to their sleeve for a refresh, drop it at a slightly higher price.

Still, I highly doubt they will release another CPU with the same price levels as in the past. Close or equal to Intel in the low/mid/mid-high end? Sure, but not in the high end anymore, and that's good for consumers, so I think it's a nice move on their side

Look -- AMD is a company and it's out to make money. They price their items according to how well they perform.

If the BD 8-core is going to go head-to-head with Intel's Gulftown, then it will be priced in its league. If it's got no chance in hell, then it will be priced lower. But AMD isn't going to deliberately kill their margins just to claim some market share -- they're going to do this thing called product segmentation!

I'm not totally convinced that these prices are correct. You're telling me that I can pay less-than-double for an 8 core over a 4 core? Please.

Blow SB away? Where'd you get this impression? Last I heard it should be about on par with SB, hence the pricing.
