Last we checked, AMD hadn't even announced shipments of desktop Bulldozer processors yet, and server-based offerings that were shipping weren't due out until the fourth quarter. That hasn't stopped a small, U.S.-based e-tailer from jumping the gun and putting up listings for FX-series Bulldozer CPUs, however.
The e-tailer, Bottom Line Telecommunications Corporation, is listing three chips:
The quoted specs match those leaked by Gigabyte in a motherboard compatibility page earlier this month, so we could be looking at the real thing here.
According to CPU-World, which first spotted the Bottom Line Telecommunications listings, final retail prices will likely be $10-20 lower than what you see in these early listings. $266 for the top-of-the-line FX-8150 sounds about right, though. Back in July, AMD quoted an "approximate retail value" of $300 for FX-series CPUs being given out as part of a contest.
