Orochi, octa-core Bulldozer in works

Written by Fuad Abazovic


GTC 2010: This is how it looks

AMD has dared to show a picture of Orochi, an eight-core 32nm Bulldozer-based server CPU. This will be the first Bulldozer to come and we expect to see it in 2011.

This is also the future high-end chip for AMD even though we are not sure why consumers would want to have eight cores on their desktops, but we do know that it will happen whether or not we want it or not.

Together with Llano, Orochi will be AMD’s first high-K metal gate 32nm chip and they are both expected in 2011. We believe that Bulldozer has already been taped out as in the CPU work it takes roughly a year from the first tape out to final product.

Since we expect Bulldozer Orochi to ship in the second half of 2011, the samples should be ready as we speak. At least it was mentioned today at the Global Technology conference here in Santa Clara, California, ironically just a mile away from Nvidia and Intel headquarters.
