nice review, though seems strange... im starting to think that amd need to offer the fx 4000 series at a lower price, with a decent chip and cooling the 5800k can hit 4.8ghz and compete in performance with this + you get an awesome integrated graphics.

That is a great point, Tony.

It does seem strange that they perform similarly but with the APU you get a GPU in the package too. Perhaps it is the upgrade path which they offer on AM3+ that keeps the price up? Just a shot in the dark.

its a nice offering anyway and seems to deliver on most of its promises. cheaper than an i3 still.

Definitely. AMD always seem to excel in the budget arena and that is a good thing as it keeps Intel from rocketing their prices.

Not too shabby as far as performance goes. I feel that AMD needs to lower the price of their FX-4000 series as well. Nice review btw!

Thanks for the kind words too.

It was, yeah. My apologies. You're one of the people who got ripped off by rab aren't you?

Sorry for accidentally editing your post. I had a derp moment and clicked edit instead of quote.

Unfortunately, we don't have any results to put into there from what I know. Also, this review was to show the differences between the now EOL FX-4100 and the replacement, FX-4130
