    Darn...I just bought an FX 8320 last month. Still, nice to see prices dropping.

    I was looking at building a FX6300+R9 270/280 system earlier in the year, but decided to stick with my laptop until Excavator/Skylake comes out next year, when a few PC games like Star Citizen will be out.

    With desktop Broadwell being pushed back to 2015, I doubt the desktop Skylake processors will be out in 2015 also...

    They do need to a damn sight more than drop the price to get me to consider using them anytime soon.

    Lack of good looking motherboards really. MSI's gaming series boards with M.2 and Sata Express look really appealing at the moment.

    I think the price drop makes the FX chips very competative. Well worth it if you're already running an AM3 board. But if not, buying into a dead end chipset with a chip that consumes tonnes of power doesn't make a lot of sense to me. Other than wanting to support Amd more than Intel! I hope this gives them a boost in sales so that we can see a real top end Cpu competitor from them, on a new chipset of course

    Re: News - AMD set to slash FX CPU pricing on September 1

    Must say, even as an AMD fan i'd never buy one of these chips (Intel's history of anticompetitive behaviour has permanently put me off them).

    The 125W rating of my current 8120 CPU is a bit excessive, 220W just takes it into silly places...

    The price just dropped from about £140 to £119 though, so perhaps this is starting to happen already.

    It's be a decent deal if not for the fact that AMD cpu's are so badly supported with many games it makes them pointless to get as a gamer.
    Don't think there's a single MMO out there that AMD even gets half the FPS that an Intel CPU get, it's so bad.

    Re: News - AMD set to slash FX CPU pricing on September 1

    ^^What? CPU support in games? Do you mean multi-threaded support, or simply the lower performance per core of AMD CPUs, because I'd love to see evidence that no AMD CPU can get half of 'an Intel' CPU based system's FPS in an MMO.
