With the lineup of Bulldozer being staggered into different markets, AMD recently announced the addition of their Bulldozer lineup - the FX-6200 and FX-4170.

Both new processors still feature the 32nm technology in which the current Bulldozer chips are using. However, the FX-6200 and FX-4170 are 125W TDP, unlike the previous FX-6100 and FX-4100, which are only at 95W. Both new CPUs carry 8mb of L3 cache and are still AM3+ sockets based.

The hexa core FX-6200 has a starting clock speed of 3.8 GHz and reaches 4.1 GHz on Turbo. While the quad core FX-4170 has a base clock of 4.2 GHz and accelerates to 4.3 GHz on Turbo. And additional good news for AMD users, with this new processors comes price cuts on older Bulldozer chips. AMD announced that it will reduce prices on its other 32nm models.

With these newer chips coming along, let's hope this will be priced competitively in our local market. For those waiting for prices to go down for CPU upgrades, this might be the starting point that you're looking for.

    Performance, Value, Practicability - These are the things I look for when purchasing Computer components. Getting the most out of what I can afford is the matter that I've consistently practiced. It doesn't take to be a rocket-scientist to know that, all I need is a keen sense in what's good and bad.
