Anybody who has a Deneb or a Thuban and wants to upgrade will probably have to move up to the 8350. That seems to be the only Vishera chip that offers any improvement across the board. If you already have a 9-series chipset, the new processor should just drop right in, negating the need for a motherboard upgrade. Now, it will be up to you whether the performance increase is worth the $200+shipping that you'll pay for an 8350. If you have $200 burning a hole in your pocket, I'd say, yeah, it may be worth upgrading. If $200 is something that you need to scrape together, the increased performance probably isn't worth it over an old 965 or 1090T

Interesting review, still got hopes that 3rd generation of these Processors will be putting AMD In the right direction. That being said the 8350 will be next in line for me I think, to give them a try.

Yeah IF ya can find a 8350 or even 8320(thought i think i seen newegg has them) .... just from my looking around all i see is "pre-order" .. this doesnt give me hope of ordering one & getting it anytime soon ...

Then this also goes 1 more further .... what then do you value a 1090T/1100T for resell then if one wants to move to a FX chip ...

Never too worried about finding a chip, and I dumped my X6 a few months before the launch of BD since the board died and I had given up on AMD for a bit.

The tides, were a changing.
As it stands now, I have an FX Build lined up in my cart for a Co-Worker. Time will tell,

Honestly I don't see it as a worthy upgrade over the 1090t anyways for the price. If a 965 BE goes for $80 brand new you can't really ask for much more than that for a used 1090t. So you spend $100+ for a small increase over your old processor. If you have the cash go for it but I really don't see the point in saving up for it (pretty sure someone else said this earlier in the thread).

I think the 8320 will be the best bang for the buck however.

Yeah, we'll see when the 8320 is released. But if it can be overclocked to the same levels as the 8350 (4.5-5.0Ghz), yes, it will be the best processor to buy.

EDIT: Turns the 8320 is available at NCIX for $185. And they're in stock...for now.

That's actually a roaring good deal! I wish I had $200 burning a hole in my pocket!
