We won’t be seeing AMD’s new FX family, codenamed “Vishera” for a little while, as the company instaed moves to clear out stock of the Llano FM1 processors to make way for Trinity, which promises to make big waves in the market. However, its rather important that AMD gets pricing right of its new CPU family, and it looks like they have; the quad-core FX-4300 will launch at $125, the six-core FX-6300 will start at $135, the octocore FX-8320 raises that to $175 (in line with the cheapest Core i5 chips) and the FX-8350 ends it off with a launch price of $199, right in the fighting ring with the Core i5-3550. Will AMD’s CPUs bring better performance and efficiency and make a good case for themselves? We don’t have to wait much longer to find out.
