Recently built an Fx 8320 machine, with a UD3 970 mother board, and a hyper 212 cooler. I was able to hit a prime95 stable 4.7 Ghz for a total of $254 with tax from buying the parts at microcenter. $254 for a machine that nails 8.32 in cinebench 11.5, easily hits 7.8 windows experience index, and has a crossfire motherboard. As far as power. I simply changed 2 of my desk lamps to fluorescent bulbs. Power bill solved. You just can't beat that bang for buck

Please email me your stats, I can't to get past 4.5ghz prime 95 stable on the FX-8320 for the life of me. I also Have the 212+ with the GA-990FXA-UD3 motherboard.

uptil I saw the draft that said $8847, I did not believe ...that...my mom in-law was like they say realey taking home money part time online.. there friend brother had bean doing this for only about eight months and recently paid the depts on there appartment and purchased a great Citroën DS. read more at, Cloud65.com

I would LOVE such a power-efficient eight-core chip. Sounds ridiculiously great for working progress.

Untill more games use a 8 core I'm out just upgraded toa FX6300 I don't plan to upgrade untill steamroller or.... If if the Next gen consoles come out I'll just ride that path.

Here I thought that 125W was low powered. I don't see the need to sacrifice performance to save 30W of power, but maybe I just don't see it because I'm still marveling at the low-power draw of the chips we have currently.

The 4 piece-of-crap CFL bulbs that are illuminating my PC as I type this use about half the power of the 125W chip. Add in the florescent "daylight" lamp that I need to supplement the terrible illumination provided by these CFLs and it is rather much more than half, ~70%.

When crappy eco-friendly "green" lighting tech uses 70% of the power of the full power Piledriver, IMO that's a low power chip already. At least the AMD architecture delivers on promise and rivals its similarly-costed Intel chips; these CFLs are supposed to replace 60W bulbs but they don't come close on the lumen output :(

I am still trying to understand the purpose of this chip. It's an underclocked and undervolted 8350? The 8350 needs all the clockspeed it can get. I'm not saying that in a derogatory manner; I own the 8150 and I love it, but these are high-clocking chips. That's their purpose: high clocks and lots of cores. Taking away the high clocks makes the chip only effective for embarrassingly parallel tasks like video transcoding, webserving, playing BF3, etc... At first, it seems to have a niche, until you realize that after losing a few hundred megahertz, the FX4XXX series could pick up the slack through clocks at the same wattage. That is, unless my math was way of- which is a real possibility. Regardless, something seems to be off here.

95 watts is low power? Ugh. Only in AMD's eyes would this be a low power part. They are hopelessly behind and stuck on 32nm. They will never have a part that the rest of the world considers "low power" until they get on 22nm and get themselves back on track to get on an even lower node so as to keep up with Intel's truly low power chips (truly low power for a non-ARM chip that is). Tick-tock AMD, you might want to try it.
