people will buy what they want to buy.
this thread clearly seems to be for people who want to buy bulldozer. criticizing (however rightful it is) their decision seems useless to me.
why advise them on getting something they're clearly locked on getting?
The 8-core FX's are really hard to come by in the UK as well. I hope the retailers don't start rising the prices because of the demand exceeding the supply.
the demand exceeding the supply - this means amd couldn't didn't make a lot of cpus (production issues, bad reviews). or they just tested the waters by doing a small launch. so it'd seem like fx cpus are selling out or fx cpus have a very high demand. this is not exactly true.
llano cpus (which are good cpus) are suffering from production issues as well afaik.
lack of supply will only let retailers raise fx cpus' prices and make them an even more unreasonable purchase.
