It looks like Origin PC may have beaten everyone to the punch with this Ghz-unlocked, 8-core AMD FX monster of a machine. I didn’t see any solid ship dates, but AMD’s release date for the Bulldozer architecture has been Q4 for a while now, so I imagine at some point between now and December we’ll see these chips on the market.
The one thing that excites/surprises me is that Origin is launching with a 5-Ghz unlock of the AMD FX (in a water cooled setup it looks like), but that still shows that the FX chips, as new as they are, have some legroom. Hopefully FX will put AMD back in the running for some nice desktop power.
