AMD Bulldozer may rear its head this week

Processor 721 Published by

ZD Net reports AMD's Bulldozer may finally arrive this week, we personally very much doubt that, but hope they are right though !

At the annual Hot Chips semiconductor conference last week, AMD provided some new details on the innovative Bulldozer architecture behind both the FX Series for desktops and new Opteron server processors.

The new processor includes four Bulldozer modules, each of which contains eight AMD64 cores, and an integrated memory controller. What makes the Family 15h design different, though, is that each module shares several components including a front-end (fetch and decode), floating-point unit, data prefetch unit, and 2MB of L2 cache.
