Read it again. There are price cuts to the FX-8150 and FX-8120, the top 2 Bulldozer chips. Mind you, I would have lead off with those in the article rather than leaving it to the last line.

The FX line of chips also got a significant price slash: the FX-8150 was cut from $245 to $205, and the FX-8120 was cut from $185 to $165.
The 8150 is getting awfully close to the $200 mark I figure it belongs at... TD has a 4100 on for $99 this week, damn near pulled the trigger on that to replace my X2 250............

The 8120 at $165 seems like the best bang for buck for the FX processors now. What ever happened to the 95w version of that? I know I have seen a review or two for it, but I have never seen it in retail (only see the 125w version).
