Bulldozer pushed back for late July

Written by Slobodan Simic

Preparing the new B2 stepping
According to a news post over at Anandtech.com, AMD's upcoming FX Series CPUs have apparently been pushed for late July, although they were scheduled to be officially announced at Computex. Apparently, AMD has some issues with the current B1 stepping and is waiting for the next B2 stepping.

The problem apparently has something to do with performance issues and in case you somehow managed to miss it, AMD's upcoming FX Series CPUs will be available in 4-, 6- and 8-core versions and should have been released together with the AMD's latest AM3+ socket 990FX chipset. The codename Zambezi FX Series is made on 32nm process and together with the chipset are a part of AMD's Bulldozer platform.

The new CPUs will work on previous AM3 motherboard but without the official AMD support. AMD will focuse on its APUs and its Llano parts for both mobile and desktop markets and most of AMD's show will be about them, of course, we are expecting more details regarding the Bulldozer platform as soon as Computex show heats up tomorrow.

If it were true then it would've been announced months ago when they "started B2 stepping production" to meet the July deadline, if the announcement was made today and production has now started then I seriously doubt they're gonna have enough chips for the world by July, with any luck they'd get them out late august

I hope to it comes sooner rather than later,but it wont start price wars,coz Sandy already dropped nicely in price,and will drop further,after BullDozeEr only few months and Ivy comes,amd making problems for themselves,neve r on time,never on schedule.Wont be surprised if they delay it until autumn.Finaly,when they release it wont matter much.They cant compete with Intel with such "business" plans LOL

You did notice that they have lots of relays? well that might be because they are trying to innovate.

Remember the on-board memory controller? and intel just copy it, if bulldozer is successful then I won't be suprised if intel presents something simular..

P.S. Plus you are comparing intel with amd? its like comparing an elefant with a mouse (..you never know how much a mouse can scare an elefant)

This is bad news for AMD, I imagine a lot of people who have been holding out for an upgrade will be seriously tempted by Sandybridge right now. A 2500K and P67 Mobo can be had for £250 thats a hell of a lot of bang for buck. Throw in future Ivybridge support and Intel is def looking like the platform of choice..

Uhh, hasn't AMD already denied any delays?

AMD didn't invent on-die memory controllers. DEC was the first to use them. Honestly, if Bulldozer were ultra competitive, you'd see benchmarks by now. AMD would be whoring that thing non-stop to get reverse their decline in the server markets. The fact that not so much a peep about it's performance has been heard speaks volumes.
