The $300 price tag hasn't been actually announced by AMD but it is mentioned in the official rules of the FX Giveaway contest which includes as prizes five 8-core FX chips and 100 Ruby dolls. It doesn't say what CPU model is actually the prize (it could be the FX-8150P or FX-8100) but the retail value provided still gives us a good idea of how much the upcoming chips will cost - not much when compared to Intel's LGA1366 Core i7 processors and the incoming Sandy Bridge-E chips.


A Ruby doll? Where's darthbeavis....

Meh, I used to enter contests, but the odds are so incredibly against me that I might as well not get my hopes up.
