[Tom's] Few more details about Bulldozer

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
There are a few more details on Bulldozer, but they don't really paint a pretty picture. For example here's how Turbo is supposed to be working:
Quote:
When there is TDP headroom in given a workload, the Turbo Core kicks in and increases clock speed across the board. Conversely, when there is a lightly threaded workload, half the modules go into C6 sleep state, and the remaining cores get clocked up higher for better performance.
...which in light threaded workloads is exactly the same as Thuban. It's three years since Nehalem w/ Turbo gen1 launched, AMD should do better than that in 2011 frown.gif

I think this has been known for awhile, hasn't it?

Looks good for the average consumer. Should help them out quite a bit. I wonder if you can make custom clock speeds for 2, 4, 6, and 8 cores. Would be nice. 5 GHz dual core, 4.7 GHz quad, 4.5 GHz hexa, and 4.3 GHz Octa.

The details about turbocore have been out for some time now.

Why even post an article if you're going to downplay the product based on some ridiculous notion?
