That TDP isnt anything new really. These things are closer to 200 watts now anyway. HWMonitor shows mine at 201 watts. I know thats a calculation and not an actual measurement but still.
These are all speculative so itll likely change in the future. Im sure the $700 price tag is BS as well. If me, a high school drop out beer truck driver, knows that $700 is a completely stupid price tag for an FX processor and nobody would buy it that was in their right mind, then Im sure the highly educated people at AMD would know this as well.
Looks like we'll find out in 3 days. Im hoping for a $225-250 4.4 GHz stock clocked FX-8370! C'mon baby! Daddy needs a new pair of shoes.
