If it's around the 1000 mark, it better be worth it.
They can try to "revive" the FX moniker all they want, I doubt it will deliver enough OOmph to warrant a 1K price....

I remember when I bought my Athlon 64 3400+ Clawhammer ($429 at the time)...the FX-51 was pretty much the same (or close) and was selling for about $750...

AMD, if their CPUs perform twice as fast as a Phenom II, it doesn't warrant a 1K price...IMHO
