Although AMD has yet to announce launch details for its "Bulldozer" processor lineup, a fresh leak provides a look at the pricing structure. The alleged pricing schedule, which was posted by AnandTech, suggests the six-core FX-6100 chip, which runs at 3.3GHz, will fetch $188. The eight-core FX-8120 and FX-8150, running at respective speeds of 3.1GHz and 3.6GHz, bring the prices up to $222 and $266 per chip.
The performance-oriented lineup features a new architecture with modular processor cores built using 32nm processes. The company's Turbo Core technology promises to optimize performance by increasing clock speeds across all cores in certain situation.
Bulldozer chips have already arrived for the server market, however the consumer desktop variants are expected to ship before the end of the year.
