TC Mag reports a contest by AMD reveals the eight-core AMD FX series processors are expected to cost up to around $300. If you live in North America you can enter in the competition over here.
Their release date may be in September, it may be October, one thing is certain though, the (long) awaited desktop Bulldozers, the FX-Series processors are reaching stores this year and according to AMD, they will cost around (or up to?) $300.

The $300 price tag hasn't been actually announced by AMD but it is mentioned in the official rules of the FX Giveaway contest which includes as prizes five 8-core FX chips and 100 Ruby dolls. It doesn't say what CPU model is actually the prize (it could be the FX-8150P or FX-8100) but the retail value provided still gives us a good idea of how much the upcoming chips will cost - not much when compared to Intel's LGA1366 Core i7 processors and the incoming Sandy Bridge-E chips.
