Bulldozer has chipset issues

Written by Fuad Abazovic


Cebit 2011: To be fixed in time for launch
Bulldozer sample chips have been around for quite some time, but this time around AMD has decided not to show the new parts at Cebit 2011.

Our sources pinned the blan on the chipset, which apparently has some teething issues, but they should be resolved in time for launch. The official story at AMD's booth was that this year the company wanted to focus on Fusion more than anything else.

We will get to that in another article, as they have demonstrated Llano vs. Core i7 quad-core, along with a lot of Brazos products. Bulldozer wafers have been shown months ago, sample chips do exist but chipset development apparently ran into some issues.

There is no reason for panic, as the processor looks good, according to our sources.
