Bargain. I bought the A8-3870k 2 months ago. Wish I'd known about this, I may have waited!
Too little to late for serious gaming rigs. Nice for multimedia pcs though.

You'd wait 2 months for £10?!

Tell you what, wait another two months you might save another £10

Wonder if they will do a swap programme for Intel parts
Not sure how this is getting hot but even with the cashback its not worth it imo.
Awesome! Not entirely sure how they can knock off £10-20 on already cheap chips! :O

Not sure why people prefer Intel, I have an AMD A8-3820 for my multimedia setup. Underclocked to it's maximum at 800mhz and it still handles all the video I throw at it :O

People go with the Intel equivalent as they overclock better, run faster, use less power & have lower temperatures.

Most people prefer Intel because they want MORE power, not less.

The equivalent intel cpu has a far greater cost than amd.
just buy intel.
Forgot to mention, this is perfect HOT HOT HOT I was looking at buying the 6100 but I might go all out and get the 8150
Sorry but AMD lost it after Intel released the Core2 range. Intel have wiped the floor with them since. If you want cheap PC for surfing the internet fine, but anyone building PCs from components (personal use - not selling on for profit) is not going to consider them.

Like Killer Hornet says Intel CPUs are better overclockers for longevity (better value long term), run faster, use less power & have lower temperatures. Intel CPU's are worth the extra money in every aspect.

Hot Deal if you really want a AMD CPU for whatever strange reason.

My mid range £179 3570k Ivy Bridge clocked at 3.4Ghz quad core annihilates the equivalent Bulldozer AMD 8 core in every single measure of performance [equal in price, because that's the comparison you seem to be going for], in fact at £179 it beats the most expensive AMD processors available at stock, it trounces the 8150.

Go Intel for any build that isn't a multimedia PC, even light gaming go Intel, the days of AMD competing are over and have been since the move onto the AM2 platform, socket 939 was the last time they were winning the proper race.

While I agree to a point but from a llano point of view Intel don't have any unlocked parts in the price category.

What annoys me most about AMD is they spend billions of dollars on R+D and then employ inept people in the marketing department.

Example:

"to qualify for a rebate, a purchaser must:

Purchase online one of the Designated Products (see table below for Designated Products) from one of the Authorized eTailers (see list below for Authorized eTailers) during the Promotion Period;
Visit amd-promotions.com and complete the registration form to submit the rebate request (a copy of the electronic receipt, or other document from the Authorized eTailer must be submitted with the rebate request). Rebate requests must be submitted no later than 18 September 2012."

There is no list! This isn't the first time either. I emailed them on a previous occasion and they said it was an error and it would be added and once again here we are and no list. So all they will do is **** people off when they buy one thinking they will get cashback and then find the cant so never buy AMD again.

Anyway enough of my rant and back to the deal. At this point in time I would only buy an FX if I already had a suitable mobo and was currently was using a last generation processor.

The reasons to buy a llano would be if you are on a shoe sting budget and need a balanced system. The problem is that the budget window is pretty tight and not huge amounts more would get you a Intel 'G' series processor and a mid-range GPU.

How about being able to overclock? The Intel K's are fine for those wishing to spend that kind of money but the stuff below that is all rather dull.

Bulldozer is poor value, but the A6-3670K at £70 odd isn't bad. Proper quad (unlike Bulldozer 4100 or Trinity), very good idle power usage (better than Intel SB at idle - load is worse than Intel of course but my machine idles far more than its at load), and a usable iGPU.

Of course, 2500K or 3570K is faster but they are £150+ and the mobos are more too. Compared to a similar Intel CPU, well the Pentium G860 is bit faster at stock, but can't be overclocked at all. The AMD Llano can. May not be for everyone, but I like being able to tweak and overclock my PCs and Intel have pretty much killed that off except with their high-end K CPUs. Intel K's are good value for those who buy at that price but I refuse to spend that much on a CPU.
Where can you get this discount who are the authorised Resellers not much good if you have to shop at places that are more expensive to begin with
Support AMD where you can, we don't need an Intel monopoly.

Not really, the FX-4100 is only about a fiver cheaper than the i3 2120 - without cashback that is - and the i3 is more powerful.

Would be easier if they made good processors...
I've been rather happy for the last ~2.5 years with my AMD Phenom II X4 955 in my games rig,

The FX-8150 can be had for about £160 possibly cheaper, £140 now with £20 cashback, so I'd certainly hope that a £179 Intel would perform better
AMDs APUs aren't bad, especially for budget machines.

Trinity is a step in the right direction too, but if you're looking for outright CPU performance Intel is unquestionably the way to go.
I'm an AMD fan boy so hot hot hot

I think you would be mad to go with a FX-8150 considering the FX-8120 gives you 90% of the performance and is unlocked. At £110 after cashback Intels cheapest (locked) quad is at least £20 more.
i have a FX4100 in my rig and it's done fine. works well with games to.

Seems that's a UK thing. Well not exactly: while France, Germany, Italy all mention a non-existent list they all have links to some retailers. The UK site does not.
I've have just purchased the A8 3870k last week and quite happy with it. Only paid £86 inc p&p. Benchmark scores between 4500 and 5000 depending on the prog I use to test.

I'm hoping to get one free, in a years time.
COLD, but in a good way Intel are HOT literally. Intel suck.....
To all the guys telling people to buy Intel: I understand where you're coming from, and I was very frustrated by Bulldozer's performance, but some people are still using AMD rigs. As an upgrade route it's a great deal
You have your budget.. save on the cpu side and get a better gpu, much better all round machine

Not really, I'd imagine selling your old stuff and buying into Intel would work out a better deal.

The only interesting AMD cpu's are the FM1 range imho. (and FM2 that is now coming out).
According to cpubenchmark the FX-8120 is better than a 2500K and is significantly cheaper at only £110 assuming you can get this cashback from amazon or scan. Bargain, voted hot.
Cold.
AMD are crap.
Have a phenom 2 955 in my wife's pc and its been great.... dont know if I would go for a AMD on my next pc, haven't researched the current crop of processors... I do know that for every review that says X AMD processor is better there are going to two saying intel Y processor is better. Depends on which sites/magazines you trust.

If you trust your electricity meter you do not want high-end AMD such as 8150.
Good price, but intels are still the way to go. Shame really.
Some serious nobs on here who know sweet fk all.

My gaming rig has an older AMD processor coupled with an older Nvidia gcard and plays EVERYTHING that i throw at it, so to the dweeb who said they would be ok for web browseing seriously needs to get a grip.

maybe in multithreaded apps but not by much, in gaming the 2500K will own the FX, especially for minimum frame rates.

There is probably not much in it if you spend the extra £50 you saved on your CPU on a better GPU. Yes some CPU intensive games you would see more benefit with the Intel but equally more GPU intensive ones you would see more benefit with the better GPU.
Ugh these comments are making me cringe.

From someone with years of pc building and repairs here is a short set of lines:

As of 2012:

AMD APU FM1/FM2 - Great value Gaming / Media systems.
AMD FX AM3+ - Slower than Intel at the same price.
Intel Cel/Pen 1155 - Great for family/office systems.
Intel i3/i5/i7 1155 - First choice for high end systems.

Put simply Intel has more raw cpu performance, while AMD has amazing integrated graphics on thier APUs.

I own a AMD A8-3850 on a ITX case mounted on the back of my monitor.
