[FUD] AMD to showcase Bulldozer at CeBit

post #1 of 45

The module-based Bulldozer architecture should deliver impressive performance and more flexibility than AMD's current cores. According to AMD, the new processors should outpace its current six-core Thuban parts by about 50 percent. This would put the Bulldozer on a par with Intel's high-end Gulftowns.

AMD is also promising to deliver next generation Turbo technology on Bulldozer server parts. Dubbed Turbo Core Dynamic Acceleration, the new technology should allow intelligent automatic overclocking on all cores, greatly improving performance over its current Turbo Core technology.

I still reckon that AMD should be calling one module a single core with 2 threads.

Makes more sense to me, but I dont really care, I just want one now!!!

they've said it themselves, when marketing their product they'll always use the term 'core' and refrain from using 'module'

(or at least I think I read JF saying so at XS...)

Probably just because 'module' would be confusing to some customers, and when talking about cores they can have bigger numbers.

Aye. I'm guessing performance will be slightly if not better than your 920 but with much MUCH better heat and power usage.

Alright time to set up an OCN strike team and steal a couple of these at CeBIT! Who's with me?!

I'm hoping for a 100$ quad core with i5 760 performance. it would be even better if it had i7 performance, it would sell like a hot cake.

50% Increase with added +2 Cores over 6 Core CPU is nice, however, vs a 4 Core i7-950 it's not so much + 12.5% / Extra Core...

Overall if it excels the i7-950 by 50% that's not something to sneeze at, the only thing that truly remains to be seen is Overclocking Potential, Actual Bench Test, and pricing, though from where I'm sitting, the Bulldozer architect is looking pretty damn impressive..

I hope this 8 Core Zambezi CPU isn't over $300 otherwise it would kill it for me, definitely...

For +50% performance over an i7-950, which presently sales for $199 @ MicroCenter, $350 would be too much to pay.

The i7-2600K is only $280 @ MicroCenter, so I think $300 would be a good price point, we shall see what AMD does here...

I am not aware of what is being shown at CeBIT. Don't expect a launch.

This, I'm hoping for the 8 cores to be around this price also, plus has anyone got news on when motherboards will be released?

If it's only slightly better than a 920 AMD is doomed.
