New Extreme core in Q4 2011, Sandy Bridge E based

Written by Fuad Abazovic


Six cores, 3.3GHz clock
AMD might have a good thing going with Bulldozer. AMD's latest creation comes in eight and six core version and according to the latest info we gathered Intel's Sandy Bridge-E sticks to a six core design.

This new enthusiast class CPU needs an LGA2011 socket and it works at 3.3GHz core. Intel claims that this CPU is completely unlocked and that it has total amount of 15MB of cache. With The help of Turbo this 130W CPU gets to 3.9GHz which is quite a nice score.

For comparison, the current Intel Core i7-990X Processor Extreme Edition has 12MB of cache, 3.46GHz core clock and with turbo it can get you to 3.73 GHz. You can assume that Sandy Bridge E extreme edition ends up faster. Sandy Bridge E also uses the X79 chipset that is also scheduled for Q4 2011 introduction.

Bulldozer with eight cores should at least win in some cases, at least this is a logical conclusion, but we will need to wait and see it to believe it.

Bull$hit with eight cores can't win against glorious Sandy Bridge with six cores. :D AMD will go bankrupt.

Fuad Abazovic says Bulldozer should win in some cases against Intels new Extreme core High end Cpu's, but Peter Scott says Bulldozer is on par with 2600K.. Quote "The 8-core FX series CPU matches the Core i7 2600k in CPU performance" "This is still not enough to threaten Intel’s lead in the high-end," Meaning the current high end, let alone the new unreleased Intel Extreme core...

Which article are we supposed to believe?

Bull$hit with 8 cores can't win against glorious Sandy Bridge with 4 cores. :D AMD will go bankrupt.

Fixed ;)
amd fanboys will go berserk with trolling now LOL
cant wait till that amd Shovel 6core or even 8core will be bulldozed by cheapest Intel SB 4core :D

If the leak is true and AMD's top end FX 8 core can only match Intels Midrange 2600k than AMD are in trouble..

Well its neck and neck with the i7-2600K. FX will beat it in multi-threaded applications but not single-threaded.
So it inevitably will come down to pricing.
i7-2600K isn't exactly a wallet buster though.

So when AMD release Bulldozer Intel will simply drop the price of the Midrange 2500K/2600K CPU's and release its new high end offering. Not looking good for AMD, was hoping they were gonna take back the performance crown with Bulldozer, but its looking like they can't even beat Intels midrange convincingly. Meh at least I can stick with my 2600K without getting the upgrade bug, at least until Intels high end is released lol

Guys, Peter was talking about Llano, their midrange part, not bulldozer

This slight oversight was expected to fuel intel fans.

I won't expect AMD to have the high-end crown and probably a lot of other AMD customers don't, because that will mean insane prices, which is not why AMD is here in the first place. If I wanted high prices I would have just stuck with Intel.

My expectation of BD is to be on the same page as most of the market in more areas than just games. These CPU's are already fast enough for most of the tasks, and even if intel has some insane CPU, I still would not cough up a grand to buy it so no point in complaining that BD gets beaten by it, or prowling in case of intel supporters, who won't buy it either.

if 2011 is trigated, it will be cooler, require less voltage and overclock far higher and thus offer superior performane per watt to anything amd has.
