The "Modules" that AMD talk about are an internal name only, and when they say Core they mean Core, not module.

A quicky from the TECHREPORT!!!

Leaked document hints at Llano, Zambezi pricing - The Tech Report

Quote:
Apparently, AMD envisions eight-core, Bulldozer-based FX-81x0 processors as competitors to Intel's Core i7-26xx chips—the mightiest of the Sandy Bridge family. The chart suggests Zambezi systems will cost slightly less, though, which could mean cheaper processor pricing, more affordable motherboards, or both. In the same vein, six- and quad-core Zambezi CPUs will go up against Sandy Bridge-based Core i5 and Core i3 chips.
So, according to this, if it's worth anything, AMD figures it's FX 8-core Bulldozer will perform pretty much like a 2600K...but a little cheaper...

Too early to tell, but interesting nevertheless!

I sure hope so but I'll believe it when I see it..

I would be a little disapointed if it's on par with 2600k... they must put the step higher than Intel mid-range processors!

On the other side, better priced is good (I'm kinda sceptic a FX name with a low price tag nevertheless)

you're right, but to me, 2600K, even if it's considered a mid-range to you (and others I'm sure...Ivy is next) is STILL a great deal...

We NEVER had that much CPU power for a price like this for $309 on sale...(unless I'm right out-of-her)..

I'm about to grab a 2600K and I feel a little better knowing that AMD aims at the 2600K for their FX-8cores...It might end up like the HD6970 launch that cannot touch the GTX580...

Asus just announced that some of their AM3 mobos will support the new AM3+ CPUs as well with a BIOS upgrade! I don't know much about architecture myself so I'm wondering if these "upgraded" motherboards will have significant performance losses (if any) compared to a straight up new motherboard with the same next-gen processor or not.
