Bulldozer and Llano release June confirmed.

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
Just wanted to share. Not sure if it has been stated anywhere but on the best known Swedish Overclocking site they stated that the Bulldozer would be released in the end of June and two weeks after Llano will be released. (The translation may say other things, Google translate ftw)

They say they will release eight different CPUs.

4 different Octocores.
2 different Hexacores.
2 different Quadcores.

AMD Bulldozer in eight models to June

* Processors
* 2011-03-08 10:22

Just in time for school closure plans AMD to launch eight new processors based on the Bulldozer architecture of 32 nanometers. Next month is the time for the Fusion processor Llano.

The processors in the Phenom series II on its last legs and is more or less calculated in the higher performance classes, but the summer offers AMD up to dance again. In the week beginning June 20 release processors based on performance architecture Bulldozer and about two weeks later, around July 4, it's time for Mid-breaker Llano.
AMD Roadmap Finanacial Analyst Day

This time AMD chooses to stop using the name as Phenom, Athlon and Sempron for the benefit of numbers and letters. Lavish Bulldozer / Zambezi becomes FX series while the Fusion processor Llano becomes the new A-series.

According Xbitlabs AMD is planning to launch a total of eight FX processors: four octo-core(FX8000), two six-core (FX6000) and an equal number of quad-core (FX4000) models. After placing the entire eleven processors in the A-series with two and four cores.

Bulldozer, AMD's first architecture to 32 nanometers and is used for processors in the family Zambezi. The newcomers are paired with the upcoming Socket AM3 + platform and Scorpius.
I guess this was taken from xbitlabs so should be there aswell I assume.

So this is still a rumor until AMD officially says something...

More 8 core variants than 6 core and 4 core variants
Interesting
I do know that it's the same deal with Phenom II x4 vs x2 and x3, but is AMD really deliberately trying to market the 8 core processor over everything else?
Most people would be fine with the 4 core one actually
Nevertheless this excites me

Same here.

What if the 8 core CPU would be the same price as the current SB?

And it would most obviously perform better, being 8 true cores over a quad having 4 fake ones. But I doubt it, I'm pretty sure the 8-core CPUs will launch like Nehalem i7, with an 8-core in the $200-300 range (i.e. i7 920) but majority being priced higher ($400-700) and getting those features such as unlocked multi. Most likely I think there won't be a $1000 CPU like Intel extreme though, no one in their right mind would pay that much for a CPU anymore with other parts being so cheap.

I guess it will probably be in that range (2600K).

That would be kick-ass.

Well, I can barely wait to see how it will perform and the prices :O

i hope bd4 vs sb will have similar perf.
if this comes true, it would be ok if bd8 is priced higher (+100/150€ ?) /double core amount/

Hmm, I hope that AMD doesn't charge too much of a premium for the 4 threads being processed with real cores rather than HT. I mean most programs (yes I know some do) don't use 6 let alone 8 cores -- and probably won't for a quite now. Adding 50% -100% to the cost because of the real cores is shortsighted in my opinion.

I also don't see the point in going crazy with the price for features like unlocked multi's. I mean what does Intel charge for the K chips -- a extra 20-30 bucks.

Now, if they release a $500-$700 8 core and it is 10%-15% faster clock for clock than sandy bridge, then... OK it's worth it.

i agree with xd_1771 about fake threads.
it may look like great technology, but if you search deeper you will be disapointed.

example - core w/o HT has 100% performance, everytime.
but with HT on, you may see some apps performance gains or sometimes losses..
But you can be sure, thanks to HT your consumption will rise

core HT off = 100% efficiency per thread 100%
core HT on = total 95 - 100 - 130% efficiency per thread 47-50-65%

If HT was great technology, AMD would use it.
