My System Specs

Default

umm, well if it says 8130 in cpu-z and windows, and its clocked like an 8130 but the box you go it in was sealed and said 8150 well, I would return it with a nasty letter :P

The FX chips are not really 8 cores, and they are not hyper threade either, they are more like 4 cores missing 1 piece per core more or less that would make them an 8 core. So they are not hyperthreaded like Intel does, more like 1.8 core or some such thing :P, I think they are kind of nifty, but they should not have been marketed as a true 8 core design, cause that they most certainly are not, real nifty design though, I would read up on it :)
