Its going to be known as "zambezi". Info on the numbering scheme is not available afaik.
post #3 of 17
Bulldozer, Zambezi, etc. yadda yadda yadda, those are just codenames and will not reflect the actual name of the CPU (Unless AMD chooses so). Perhaps they'll continue a current name brand (i.e. AMD Phenom III) or use a new brand (AMD Fusion, AMD X-Series)

AM3+ will be the socket name. Bulldozer is still 4 months away, perhaps AMD is still deciding on naming, etc.

I'd be surprised if it was Phenom III, surely they would want to create a new name to reflect an entirely new architecture, so people don't just go "oh another phenom, core i3/5/7 is faster clock for clock..etc...etc...."

I'm thinking the same, but I find myself very curious as to what the new name'll be... I was hoping for "AMD Fusion ####" but that suits Llano better. I don't want another "C-Series" or "V-Series" name, especially on the high end proecssors.
Perhaps we should discuss the model number. What do you guys think, will AMD create a new numbering scheme with 4 digits like Sandy Bridge (i.e. AMD Fusion 2200) or 3 digits or go back to the "####+" (used to compare Athlon 64's to equivalent Pentium 4s) numbering scheme somehow?

AMD seems to follow the Intel naming scheme pretty closely, they may just re-adopt the 4 digit naming scheme that intel went back to with SB. I would however like it if they went with something unique.

They wouldn't be going back to a 4 digit naming scheme, we are on that already - 1090T,1055T, 1075T etc.
