More Bulldozer specs revealed

Written by


First parts coming in August, apparently
AMD seems to be preparing several iterations of its new Bulldozer architecture for 2011, but according to Donanimhaber, the launch has been delayed by a few weeks.

The range starts with the 3.6GHz FX-4100 quad core and FX-4120 variant with an undisclosed clock. Both are 95W parts. The FX-6100 is a 3.3GHz six-core, or 3.9GHz on Boost and it will be accompanied by the FX-6120. Again, these are 95 watt processors.

As for flagship eight-cores, the FX-8100 clocked at 2.8GHz and capable of 3.7GHz on boost, all in a 95W thermal envelope. The FX-8120 is clocked at 3.1GHz and 4GHz on boost and it will ship in both 95W and 125W versions. The FX-8150 is a 3.6GHz part capable of 4.2GHz on boost.

If you’ve been following Bulldozer news closely, you might notice that some clocks are a bit different than anticipated, i.e. the boost range is somewhat smaller and base clocks are higher.

Now, as far as we could gather, the launch has been delayed by 60 to 90 days depending on the SKU. Since the first FX parts were scheduled to appear in June, this means we should see them in August and September. Still, it might be a good idea to take this schedule with a grain of salt.

We’ve already seen a glimpse into Bulldozer’s performance and the only big question remaining is pricing. AMD traditionally tends to offer a bit more bank for your buck than Intel, so it could put quite a bit of pressure on Intel.
