Making room for Vishera

AMD plans to retire quite a few Zambezi desktop FX cores and replace them with superior Vishera cores. The transition is already happening in Q4 2012 and it will be complete next year.

As we reported here, AMD plans to retire FX 8150 eight-core, FX 6200 six-core and FX 4170 quad-core chips in Q1 2013 and it plans to retire an additional four processors in the following quarter. The AMD FX 8120, a 3.1GHz octa-core with turbo capability of 4GHz, 125W and 7MB of cache, retires in Q2 2013. AMD also plans to retire the six-core FX 6100 clocked at 3.3GHz to 3.9GHz with turbo, at 95W TDP.

Not even quad-cores will be spared as FX 4130 with 3.8 to 3.9GHz clock, four cores, 4MB cache and 125W TDP as well as the FX 4100 with 3.6GHz to 3.8GHz with turbo, will reach its end of life in Q2 2013.

They all get replaced by FX 8350 and FX 8320 in the eight-core 125W market, FX 6300 in 95W six core market and FX 4300 in 95W quad-core market that are available since late October.
