This can't be confirmed as 100% truth yet, but it seems AMD has "accidentally" leaked out the pricing of their upcoming eight-core Bulldozer chip. AMD announced a give away of 5 x AMD FX-8150P processors and if you scroll through the terms and conditions of the competition, the following line can be found:
Top tier prizes: Five (5) AMD FX series eight-core processors. Approximate Retail Value: $300 USD each.
Oh really... well, it seems the processor will compete against the Intel Core i7 2600 Sandy Bridge CPU which is currently retailing at $300. Can AMD bulldoze Intel over with this chip and the competitive pricing, we'll have to wait and see!
