    70 maybe amd lower the price... and TDP you don't know the real consuming yet.

      My 125W TDP FX-5180 has no problems eating 129W with light loads.

        Wow an exclusive new CPU series?!

        @Q, power draw chart linked a few posts ago.

        @devius, nothing wrong with the architecture. The first iteration though... Not what AMD made it up to be. Very rough.
        Still deserves better treatment than what people have been giving it till now. Let's be honest here.

        I'm getting one for the prospect of poking around that new puppy.

            See! That CPU rips through highly threaded loads, you can't keep up!

                  if a i3 dualcore do have 2 integer units pro core they talk about a dualcore with hyperthreating

                  but if a FX4000 do have 2 integer units pro module they talk about a bad quatcore.

                  in my point of view this is Chit chatting!

                  but i do not chit chatting i'm telling the truth the FX4000 cpu is a dual-core with a hardware based hyper-threating and intel do have software based hyper-threating.

                    That is what the turbo mode is about, isn't it? To make the CPU operate at its TDP limit, to get the most speed out of it. And unless you measure DC power draw, your PSU efficiency will eat a bit as well.

                      There's new registers on the 15h/Bulldozer parts to be able to measure current power usage for the CPU itself, and the Phoronix Test Suite is now able to monitor that during tests.
