IF you go back a few pages I point out somethings with what I have read with all the reviews this morning ...

AMD Bulldozer FX-8150 Processor Review Comment Thread

8120 is suposivly same prive point as 2500k ..... the chip also preforms up to 8150 levels in oc's ... ergo ... when you do a 8120 vs 2500k comparision on oc'ed levels .... the 2 chips trade blows @ 4.5 ghz ...

Again, everyone is ready to call this cpu a failure cause it lacks single thread preformance, BUT again, as i, others & some reviewers have pointed out .... this cpu is built for the future of a most ovious multithreading reality of the pc world.
