It is less than a week before Bulldozer’s official launch (October 12th), and it would seem that a Ukrainian retailer was not able to wait as it leaked AMD’s FX-8120 Bulldozer processor in a price list. The 32nm chip is stated to have eight cores running at 3.1 GHz, 8 MB L2 cache, and 8MB of L3 cache. Further, the core stepping is said to be B2 and is comprised of Zambezi processing cores. The FX-8120 has a 95W TDP and is compatible with motherboards from the AM3+ series and newer.

The processor is listed as model number FD8120FRGUBOX, and carries a price of $221 USD or 1,791 UAH. The website is currently listing October 10th; however, it is not clear if customers will be able to purchase the processor that day by the pricing page alone. If the leaked benchmarks turn out to be close to the truth, would you consider the FX-8120 a good value?

lack of pci-e 3.0 is the clincher for me to not get BD now, not as if the MB supports and and were waiting for BD+, they delayed this product SOOOOO long they did not anticipate needing pci-e 3.0 to compete.

Why would the affect your decision? Graphics cards are not even close to saturating 2.0 yet.

Oh, and it was some AMD-guy who said it, not 100% sure, but I think it was Terry Makedon, said he was a marketing guy.
