No desktop Bulldozer in September

Written by Slobodan Simic

FX-series pushed for October
Although it was never officially confirmed by AMD that desktop Bulldozer parts will launch in September there has been some solid info regarding that date, but now our sources are confirming that there will be no FX parts till mid-October, at earliest.

The good part of the story comes from Xbitlabs.com and according to the news post, there has been some changes regarding the FX Zambezi lineup. According to the info, AMD has expanded the lineup to a total of seven models, four FX-8100 series eight-cores, one FX-6100 six-core and two FX-4100 series quad cores. Of course, the Q1 2012 lineup includes one one of each, FX-8170, FX-6120 and FX-4120.

As far as the delay goes, we have been hearing about it for a last couple of days but now our sources are pretty sure that Bulldozer will not come before mid-October. That is the best case scenario, if all goes well for AMD.

According to what we've heard, there have been five versions of the B2 chip stepping and performance wise Bulldozer doesn't look that good at least not from what are sources are telling us. In any case, there will certainly be more details regarding the FX-Series lineup as we step into the next month.

The only reason for the delay is the fact AMD does not want to ship limited quantities. They need approx: 20 to 30 more days to ensure maximum quantities are shipped. The demand far exceeds what AMD is capable of delivering.
As for performance rumours, nobody knows what to expect, anything that is said before factual data is finally released is complete nonsense. AMD did state in various slides that Bulldozer “WILL” be approx: 50% faster clock for clock vs. its current Phenom II’s.
And if this is the case, we are looking at a strong winner and a strong competitor for Intel's offerings. In the end, Price/Performance will be the determining factor for most buyers.....

I'll believe that BS when I see your source.

We all heard about the 50% improvement months ago. This close to launch, if it was as good as the fanboys think it will be, AMD would be SCREAMING from every rooftop about it... but they aren't. Imagine that.

This is [censored]ed man, i don't appreciate "cat chasing it's own tail but will never catch it" nonsense. Amd should have man up from the start and [censored]ing say the chip wasn't ready, since january. a chip that was suppose to ship in q1, can't just slip to q4 without them knowing beforehand.

That i5 2500 is looking real tempting right now.At least with the server part we would be able to get some benchmarks.

and your assumption of AMD's delay as i quoted is more factual? THAT sounds like nonsense to me...as far as your hypocratic statement is concerned.

:sigh: They are either pretty sure that the Performance is 50% more than the phenom IIs and this will lead to a strong demand..or they are trying to optimize the Bulldozer to compete against i5 and i7 ..

actually all review that have been made now are low clocked engineer samples whit bad bioses and non optimized benchmarks and so if they patch the os for the architecture than we can compare the cpu now is not the time.
