AMD FX 8150 CPU is with 8 Core. with all similar features as Intel i7, where intel i7 is with quad core
The FX series is a total let down by AMD , i had very high Hopes for it to Stop the EvilishIntel but it failed .
it's even "weaker" that the Phenom Series ( Single Core ) and consumes too much power
it might have 8 core , but i7 has hyper threading so both can process 8 thread i suppose ...
i would think twice before going for AMD , but that's me
