AMD FX-4200 is available for pre-order
AMD FX-400 quad-core series currently includes two CPUs: FX-4100 and FX-4170. At least two other models from the same series, FX-4130 and FX-4150, were discovered in leaked AMD roadmaps, although they are not launched yet. It is possible that another quad-core FX processor may be released before the 4130 and 4150. AMD FX-4200 was spotted in Gigabyte and MSI CPU support lists in March and April, and recently appeared in Bottom Line Telecommunications online store. The CPU can be pre-ordered for $154.81. Pre-order prices tend to be more expensive than retail prices of in-stock items, and we expect that they will drop by $10 or more once the processor becomes available.
In related news, boxed AMD FX-8150 CPU with liquid cooling, which has part number FD8150FRGUWOX, is now in stock in a number of online stores. The FX-8150 is a flagship AMD processor, that has 8 CPU cores, operating at 3.6 GHz. Official price for this model with air cooling in 1K quantities is $205, whereas Amazon sells it for $200. The same chip with liquid cooling is sold by Amazon for about $311. You can also buy FD8150FRGUWOX from eBay for about the same price as Amazon, or even cheaper from Provantage.com.
