Bulldozer B3 stepping. When will it hit?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Does anyone know when the B3 stepping of BD should start being seen in the wild?

This is all I am asking about, I don't want to hear about anything else not related to my question or it will be flagged.

I'm thinking that the 8170 will release in the B3 stepping, but we will see how that plays out.

On a side note, I just noticed on CPU world's site that the 8150/20 are limited to 61c but the 4100/6100 are 70c for max temps.

Late Q4 2011 is when production should start
Early Q1 2012 is when availability should start

You shouldn't worry about temperature if you have good cooling

They were already working on B3 a couple months ago. So I am guessing production will begin in late October and release will happen on January 2012. Takes at least 2-3months for production.

The 8150 just came out. Don't expect the new stepping to drop till atleast january at the earliest

2012 Q1 would make sense given the time it takes to make the chips, but if they show up earlier I'll take that.

They have a lot of work to do before they release a new stepping. You dont want them putting anything out in the next couple of months most likely. Chances are it will not be much better. They need to make some big changes.
