    Re: Any Bulldozer rumors?

    Seeing your replies to Bulldozer threads on other forums, my guess would be that you're in "PR"....

    Re: Any Bulldozer rumors?

    Hey John, welcome to the forums!

    Thanks for somewhat clearing up that "rumor". :P

    Obviously I'm not NDA'd up yet, so I don't have the entire scoop. Can't wait to see how everything actually comes out.

    Definitely not in PR.

    Re: Any Bulldozer rumors?

    I saw an article over at legit reviews that had a picture of the bulldozer box and some other information. It said mid June for the release of the top desktop models.

    AMD 'Bulldozer' CPUs Slated for June

    AMD is said to have finalized the shipping dates of its new high-end processor lineup. The company's new nameless lineup of high-end desktop processors will be released to market in the second half of June. The new processors will be built on the 32 nm manufacturing process, and will be based on the much talked about Bulldozer architecture. The reason it's "nameless" is because there's no processor brand (such as Athlon or Phenom) attached to it. The lineup will consist of AMD FX8000 series octo-core processors, AMD FX6000 series hexa-core processors, and AMD FX4000 series quad-core processors. The chip will feature high-speed DDR3 integrated memory controllers, but will lack integrated graphics. AMD will release as many as eight processor models. To support the processors, AMD's partners in the motherboard industry will release socket AM3+ motherboards based on AMD 9-series chipsets, around the same time.

    According to report from X-bit Labs, leaked AMD documents reveal that Zambezi processors offer similar capabilities to Intel’s Core i7 Sandy Bridge processors. The report also states that AMD’s Zambezi features more over-clocked cores, dual graphics, OpenCL and GPU capabilities. This makes Zambezi more of an integrated graphics chip than a desktop CPU.

    So there you have it- spread the word. Bulldozer is going toe-to-toe with the 2xxx series Sandy Bridges.

    Of course, if you buy that hook, line, and sinker, you also believe this picture from the same article ...



    ... is a bulldozer.

I stand with Jefferson rather than with them, and tell them, as he did, that the issue of money is a function of the government and that the banks should go out of the governing business."

    Shame for doubting AMD. I totally believe they can print a bulldozer on the heat spreader

    Yeah, for the server market. I believe it will be the dual die/single substrate product.

    My understanding is that the sockets will be the same but I'm almost certain that the enterprise systems will be locked from system board to CPU. You will need to mod to be able to OC.

    Different sockets--no wiggle room on that one. Desktop chips will use AM3+ which is a 940ish pin socket. Server chips will continue to use sockets C32 and G34, both of which are LGA and feature more pins.

    The 16-core BD product will only be available as an "Interlagos" core Opteron server CPU. The biggest desktop chip will be an 8-core.

    Reason I ask is cause there were 939 opterons and people were getting good OCs from them in desktop mobos.
