AMD FX 8150 and two more EOL in Q1 13

Written by Fuad Abazovic

Setting the pace for Vishera

It’s no big surprise that AMD’s recently launched FX 8300, 6300 and 4300 series are out to replace Zambezi based FX 8100, 6100 and 4100 series, but many didn’t expect the change to happen that fast.

It turns out that AMD has already planned a death certificate for AMD FX 8150, 8120 eight-core Zambezi 32nm based processors and the End of Life status starts in Q1 2013 for the first and Q2 for the second chip.

EOL also affects six core FX 6200 clocked between 3.8 and 4.2GHz with Turbo at 125W TDP as well as FX 4170 clocked at 4.2 to 4.3GHz with turbo.

Some processors, including the six-core FX 6100 that works between 3.3GHz and 3.9GHz with Turbo, will live on to Q2 2013 when they should reach EOL. AMD also keeps FX 8120 the 3.1 to 4.2 GHz clocked eight core until Q2 as well as FX 4130 and FX 4100.

After Q2 2012 AMD plans to keep four processors, eight-core FX 8350 and 8320 parts, as well as FX 6300 and FX 4300 in the quad-core league. Things will definitely become simpler from Q2 onwards, especially in the AM3+ market.
