My thoughts exactly. I am not going to deny that the FX-8150 was bit of let down, but it definetly helps to read/review multiple reviews to get a better understanding. Will be interesting to see how the reviews will look when FX-8170 rolles around; time will tell. Besides, once the hype settles down so will the prices and the chips will be that much more attractive.
