    Default Bulldozer CPUs Selling Out Surprisingly Fast

    Reviewers may have been generally disappointed in the Bulldozer central processing units, but even with the outcry on the Internet, the chips are selling well.

    Then again, Advanced Micro Devices never actually said that Bulldozer would smack Intel chips around.

    Bulldozer always was described as something that would be at the level of Core i5, but people probably hyped it up more than they should because it was given the FX moniker.

    Either way, the 8-core FX-8150 and FX-8120, FX-6100 and FX-4100 don't suffer from a lack of buyers.

    Of course, getting sold out could be indicative that the inventories of such CPUs aren't all that big, but that doesn't take away from how the units are, at the end of the day, gone from shops and retailers.

    Meanwhile, AMD Stopped Shipping 45nm Phenom II and Athlon II CPUs, so look for one quick if you like them better.

    seeing as Newegg has only sold 114 FX8150s compared to 1269/2500K chips and 1067/2600K chips for total of 2336 K chips, I'd say AMD has a lot of catching up to do .

    So how do you like it?
    Any shortcomings or problems noticed yet?

    Would you do it all over again?

    No idea of its performance yet been sitting on the desk waiting on some more parts for the new build.
    For $159 dollars I could care less if I burn it up in the first week, I've wasted more on my first wife. lol

    I'm interested in hearing how it goes once you get it going.
    Good luck with it too.
