"The first enthusiast CPU to employ the Bulldozer design is currently codenamed Zambezi, and it will contain four of these dual core modules for a total of eight cores. We also know for a fact that Zambezi will use socket AM3, meaning anyone with a DDR3 Phenom II motherboard will be ready to rock with a BIOS upgrade."

Zambezi
Family: Bulldozer
Cores: 4 to 8
Process: 32nm
Socket: AM3
Onboard GPU?: No
Platform: Scorpius
Role: Performance Desktop
Launch date: Late 2010

16 Threads anyone?

From what I understand of CMT, it will not be 16 threads. It will be 4 modules with 2 cores each, meaning 8 cores, which in turn means 8 threads total.

I know its too soon but wonder what the expected price will be....

Perhaps a Good Christmas Present.. to my SELF!

hope the 790 chip set will still work with it... Gigabyte has leaving us on the edge whether the 10xxT series would work on their boards since AMD came out with the 890 right before the 10xx series.

The hyperthreading rumor was debunked months ago. There is no hyperthreading on Bulldozer.

However AMD is doubling up on integer clusters for each bulldozer "module".

Need a Bios update, but the 6 cores will work on your board... As for Bulldozer, we will have to wait
