Press release, October 13; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES [Thursday 13 October 2011]

AMD has launched the FX family of CPUs, delivering a fully unlocked and customizable experience for desktop PC users. The AMD FX series of desktop CPUs includes AMDs first eight-core desktop processor. This marks the first retail availability of processors that use AMD's new multi-core architecture (Bulldozer), which is included in AMD's upcoming server CPU (Interlagos) and the next-generation of AMD accelerated processing units (APUs).

All AMD FX CPUs offer completely unlocked processor clock multipliers for easier overclocking, paving the way for PC enthusiasts to enjoy higher CPU speeds and related performance gains. Additionally, these processors use AMD Turbo Core Technology to dynamically optimize performance across CPU cores enabling maximum performance for intense workloads.

Starting today, the AMD FX CPUs will be available from global retailers. Additional AMD FX CPUs and systems based on the AMD FX processors will be available for purchase following the initial launch.

The four CPUs are: FX-8150 with eight cores and 3.6GHz CPU base (3.9GHz Turbo Core, 4.2GHz Max Turbo) at US$245; FX-8120 with eight cores and 3.1GHz CPU base (3.4GHz Turbo Core, 4.0GHz Max Turbo) at US$205; FX-6100 with six cores and 3.3GHz CPU base (3.6GHz Turbo Core, 3.9GHz Max Turbo) at US$165; and FX-4100 with four cores and 3.6GHz CPU base (3.7GHz Turbo Core, 3.8GHz Max Turbo) at US$115.
