More Bulldozer specs revealed

Written by


First parts coming in August, apparently
AMD seems to be preparing several iterations of its new Bulldozer architecture for 2011, but according to Donanimhaber, the launch has been delayed by a few weeks.

The range starts with the 3.6GHz FX-4100 quad core and FX-4120 variant with an undisclosed clock. Both are 95W parts. The FX-6100 is a 3.3GHz six-core, or 3.9GHz on Boost and it will be accompanied by the FX-6120. Again, these are 95 watt processors.

As for flagship eight-cores, the FX-8100 clocked at 2.8GHz and capable of 3.7GHz on boost, all in a 95W thermal envelope. The FX-8120 is clocked at 3.1GHz and 4GHz on boost and it will ship in both 95W and 125W versions. The FX-8150 is a 3.6GHz part capable of 4.2GHz on boost.

If you’ve been following Bulldozer news closely, you might notice that some clocks are a bit different than anticipated, i.e. the boost range is somewhat smaller and base clocks are higher.

Now, as far as we could gather, the launch has been delayed by 60 to 90 days depending on the SKU. Since the first FX parts were scheduled to appear in June, this means we should see them in August and September. Still, it might be a good idea to take this schedule with a grain of salt.

We’ve already seen a glimpse into Bulldozer’s performance and the only big question remaining is pricing. AMD traditionally tends to offer a bit more bank for your buck than Intel, so it could put quite a bit of pressure on Intel.

Hm... the only difference that I notice from all articles to this so far, is that turbo-core 2 on FX81xx will be +900Mhz and TC of the Flag-ship +600Mhz.
It seems to be true (ok, regarding the speculations until now so far), FX8150 with B1 was at nominal of 3,2Ghz and a TC +1Ghz, and that specs 3,6Ghz is for B2 with a bit higher clock in nominal and maybe with some modifications.
TDP in last B2 looks normal for that type of CPU 125W (for 8150).

Yeah, no big change really. Just slightly higher base clocks and less turbo, i.e. 900mhz instead of 1ghz difference...

All we need now is some exact prices

Guys, there are two turbo states - one regarding all cores and one for a reduced amount of cores. Maybe the rumour sources are mixing the frequences of both states up.

Good point, I didn't think of that

No prices?

EDIT:
Are these the prices?

OMG! 95w is very impressive for the clock they pushed! Now just have to wait for the launch and the benchmarks against sandy. Hope they will pull off something very competitive!

what happened to the fx-8130 reviewed a couple days ago?

I'd like to see how well the FX81XX series handles quad sli or quad fire!

No. All we need now are CPU's on the shelf. I'm building a new rig and want one now!
