The competition are on the verge of launching a new CPU:

Yes that sounds about right. They are bound to have something to counter AMD's new line up. They have had enough time to prepare for it after all.

AMD will have to respond by giving away new Bulldozer FX CPU's with every Mars Bar you buy!  :P

AMD was streaming yesterday, an employee of AMD confirmed that the Bulldozer series will be out next week.
Some of the things he clarified:
1)Release is next week.
2)The 8 core version will be less than $250.
3)He mentioned something about us expecting 22nm products from them, but didn't say any dates.

Yeah, you're right on this one.
To my knowledge the quad core Bulldozer will be priced at $129, which means the Phenom series will become dirt cheap.
The octa-core Bulldozer should be around $229, which is a great deal for an 8 core processor.

 I'm probably gunna get shot for this.....especially as I have no hard data as yet, .......so quote and kill me in 4 months!

  I think you will find in 20/20 hindsight (in four months) that after you factor in like for like performance against cost ,.... they will end up being very similarly priced.

  Add £100 to the list price if they do .... makes sense though ..... 95-100W is a barrier all parties will have to deal with .

I wonder whether through large scale production, economies of scale, the unit price will be competitive, we shall have to wait and see.
