Asus leaks more Bulldozer specs

Written by


Four Zambezi FX parts detailed
Asus has leaked a few fresh tidbits of information on AMD’s upcoming Bulldozer processors. The company posted a few new specs in a BIOS evaluation chart for one of its new 990FX motherboards.

The list includes two eight-core parts, which were already leaked some time ago. The FX-8130P is a 3.8GHz part and it can overclock to 4.2GHz on turbo. It has a TDP of 125W and should sell for $320. The FX-8110 also packs eight cores and it’s clocked at 3.6GHz sans turbo, or 4.0GHz with turbo. The TDP stands at 95W and the price is $290.

In the six-core department, the FX-6110 will feature a 95W TDP and an MSRP of $240, but there is no word on clocks yet. The same goes for the quad-core FX-4110, with a 95W TDP and $190 price.

In any case, the prices look very competitive compared to Intel’s high end parts and Bulldozer should be on a par with current high-end Intel Core series parts.

based on the price, the 8core @ 3.8K will perform the same or better than .
not bad. not bad at all.
from the name (FX-8130), it seems these can clock even higher!

can't wait 4 benchmarks,if fx6110 will be better that 2500K, my money goes to AMD

Yeah, the prices sound very promising. Intel will probably be forced to cut margins on some high-end stuff.

I don't see the 8130P clocking north of 4.3GHz without water. 32nm + 125w just sounds so wrong when it's priced on par with a 32nm + 95w 2600K.

amd has deepened its pipeline. meaning higher clock with lower TDP is possible, but the IPS has gone down. we don see the effect of lower IPS due to lower latency in the L-x cache and other modds

so 3.8 @ 128W is possible. infact i was expecting it to be 95W

^ Troll alert... Looks like this dude is attention seeker.

These new cpu's do look good, just to late to the party. Shortly after BD gets released Intel will release Ivybridge 22nm with 3D power tech. I am happy to wait for Ivybridge becausce with 22nm and 3D its like two arch developments in one cycle. The new Ivybridge CPU's will be awesome. If Bulldozer had come 6 months ago it would be a different story. My 2600K is more than enough until Ivybridge..

It will ultimately come down to how well they overclock.

If the new Bulldozers can get past the 5.5GHz on air then they should be onto a winner. Its obviously just guess work but its reasonable to assume that AMD priced them at that level because they perform at that level so if a 3.8GHZ BD can be there or there abouts a 3.3GHz SB but the SB can go to arount 4.8-5GHz then BD will need to overclock to around 5.5Ghz to still be competative to the overclockers.

Its highley unlikely that BD will overclock to 5GHZ or past it, at stock 3.8GHZ its 125W, to get much further you would have to have water cooling, which then defeats AMD bang for buck. Water cooling is expensive. Sandybridge reach 5GHZ on air easily and around £150 for 2500K nothing can beat its value.. http://www.aria.co.uk/SuperSpecials/Other+products/Intel+Core+i5-2500K+3.30GHz+%28Sandybridge%29+Socket+LGA1155+Processor+-+Retail+?productId=43216

lol
think about it this way. 95W is needed at 3.6GHz. so how can the TDP jump to 125W by simply increasing 200MHz. lol ... hilarious

at most it will be it will be 105W and be sure that a 4.5Ghz will be marked 125W as well!!!!

and when you OC, CPU TDP can go upto 140W~150W in air!
