Isn't it a general rule that when you fabricate a leak, you should at least try to make it SOUND true, or at least possible
Also, no FMA, XOP, AES, AVX, or any of the other instructions that BD/PD/SR support? What kind of horrible effort was this?
And shouldn't the L3 be 96-way?

The CPU will feature new instructions sets 3DNow(+), AMD-V and AMD-IV. It is mentioned that the processor is in ES phase and was tested with an internal AM4 motherboard from ASUS. The AM4 motherboard will feature quad-channel DDR4 RAM or GDDR5 RAM on high-end motherboards. The Processor will feature 32MB of L3 Cache. By far, the most intriguing bit of information is the option to run the procecessor in PowerThreading mode, which is AMDs alternative of intel's popular Hyperthreading feature. This will allow two of the 16 cores to operate as a single core, but produce, depending on the task at hand, anywhere from 40-80% IPC improvement over the base Nottingham architecture. This feature can be used when a program demands more powerful single-threaded performance. Each module can operate independently, allowing for a range of potential configurations. (14 cores, 1 PowerThreaded core). With Powerthreading enabled, IPC matches or exceeds current haswell chips.
The processor line will most likely be named Archon, and feature a broad range of individual processors, from 1 module, 2 cores, up to 8 module 16 cores. Early performance tests show that the 16 core variant of Archon is on par with a 3960x running at 5GHz. interestingly enough, sources say this will be the first AMD processor that commercially, will drop all indication of clock speed within OEM parts, citing that improvements in IPC have made clock speed completely redundant. Now, AMD will instead advertise their processors with FLOPs, AMD has also decided to change the way they market power consumption, preferring a more streamlined, intel-like approach. The processor will have a different naming scheme, differing based on a multitude of factors.
- Archon - 4GHz Turbo - 16 cores - 95w power envelope
- Opteron - 3GHz Turbo - 16 cores - 45w power envelope
- Phenom 4GHz Turbo - 12 cores - 70w power envelope
- Athlon - 4GHz Turbo - 8 cores - 45w power envelope
- Turion - 4GHz Turbo - 6 cores - 20w power envelope
- Duron - 4GHz Turbo - 4 cores - 14w power envelope
- Sempron - 4GHz Turbo - 2 cores - 7w power envelope
All these new AMD processors will be christened the 270 series, as time marches on we can expect variants coming to the plate. All AMD AM4 chips are overclock-able.
what the... lmao

Isn't 25nm used for NAND?

This REALLY says something for that program.
Guess I won't be taking any of those 7Ghz over clocks I see posted around here seriously anymore....
