Once the 8 core i7 comes out I would love to see a new maxpc head-to-head article. Since AMD doesn't offer a processor that can compete with the 5960X, it would be awesome to see a feature that pitted a single socket 8 core vs a mobo with two socketed 4 core processors. I would love to see some numbers on which is more efficient both in economics and power.

Ouch that pricing hurts! Though in the ballpark of what I was figuring. It sucks this machine will likely be my last AMD rig unless AMD pulls some fairy dust out of their arse in the next 12 months or so which isn't going to happen.. especially after reading the other article today about their losses.

I gave up on my 8 core FX 8350 two months ago still was perfectly capably of playing anything out there except for maybe Arma 3 at launch.

People better pray they don't or those Intel prices are going to jump by 30%. But I doubt AMD is going anywhere, I'm betting on a return to FX chips in 2015.

I wouldn't count AMD out yet, especially not due to their debt as surely they're yet another "too big to fail" company...

Prices seem elevated however I would not be surprised to find they were accurate.
