Ask ! Get the answer jay_nar2012 a c 109 à CPUs September 16, 2012 11:13:21 AM I noticed... PileDriver, AMD's next series of CPUs, they are coming out sometime in the next few months. If you can wait for the CPU then wait. If you can't wait then get either the Phenom ii x4 or the A8-3870K If you do lots of multitasking most of the time get the A8, if you game most of the time just get the Phenom ii. XXStavrosXX September 16, 2012 11:17:11 AM If u intended to use the on-board GPU of A8 go for it. If you will use a discrete GPU go with FX 4170 or 965 BE, the first is better but more expensive too, your call. adamyjake September 16, 2012 11:38:42 AM how many cores will the PileDriver have? also how much will it be? jay_nar2012 a c 109 à CPUs September 16, 2012 11:46:16 AM The price won't be more than the bulldozer's price. The core range would be probably 2-6/8. adamyjake September 16, 2012 11:53:19 AM jay_nar2012 said:The price won't be more than the bulldozer's price.
