AMD officially announces FX brand

Written by Slobodan Simic

Still no CPUs to carry it
As promised earlier, AMD officially revived its FX brand during the E3 show in Los Angeles. Despite the official announcement of the FX brand, there was no talk regarding the launch of the first FX series CPUs based on Bulldozer architecture.

The FX brand will be based around AMD's Scorpius platform that will consist of AM3+ FX series CPUs, codename Zambezi, the recently launched AMD 9-series chipset and Radeon HD 6000 series graphics cards. AMD's Vice President of worldwide product marketing, Leslie Sobon said that AMD's FX brand will enable an over-the-top experience for PC enthusisast as well as an unrivaled feature set and amazing control over the PC performance by combining an unlocked, native eight-core CPU, latest chipset and AMD's latest graphics cards.

Unfortunately and despite the official announcement, we will not see the FX Series CPUs anytime soon as the recent rumours are pointing at September for availability.

while it will be very good for consumers,us,kn owing prices for bobdozer hardly gives any hope for cpu wars,they will hardly compete with Sandy,since prices show perfectly what can you expect from bobdozer.And then Ivy launches..
At the best amd will only compete with 1year old Sandy,and this is at the best case..
amd made big mistake with such delays,now 4th time..stupid marketing wich will hurt them

" pointing at September for availability",durp!! I love amd as much as the next man. Although, September release is probably one of the worst release times. Even if the FX is gun-slinging badass, who's buying? That's realistically only 2 quarters away from an ivy bridge release. That will be a tougher deal to seal with OEM's. This many delays can only mean they need to reorganize their production.
