HOLY SHIT BULLDOZER SPECS!

http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?p=22561127#post22561127

Quote
Asus has leaked a few fresh tidbits of information on AMD’s upcoming Bulldozer processors. The company posted a few new specs in a BIOS evaluation chart for one of its new 990FX motherboards.

The list includes two eight-core parts, which were already leaked some time ago. The FX-8130P is a 3.8GHz part and it can overclock to 4.2GHz on turbo. It has a TDP of 125W and should sell for $320. The FX-8110 also packs eight cores and it’s clocked at 3.6GHz sans turbo, or 4.0GHz with turbo. The TDP stands at 95W and the price is $290.

In the six-core department, the FX-6110 will feature a 95W TDP and an MSRP of $240, but there is no word on clocks yet. The same goes for the quad-core FX-4110, with a 95W TDP and $190 price.

In any case, the prices look very competitive compared to Intel’s high end parts and Bulldozer should be on a par with current high-end Intel Core series parts.

The original "post" w/ slides and so forth:

Anxious waiting, AMD "Bulldozer" processor today, and "vent", including the new platform features and even the frequency specifications, but the release time remains a mystery.

Below the point of view jc3213 users in the country's slide on the official forum, is to introduce the FX series processors based on the bulldozer, "Zambezi" (Zambezi), 9-series chipsets "Scorpio" (Scorpius), and it will be marked VISION Black label.

Slide, said bulldozers FX family of processors was the end of March 2011 trial production and is scheduled to be held in Los Angeles in mid-June the E3 2011 conference officially released, that is on the Computex 2011 Computex Taipei show and not only released, but according to inside information obtained by this site, bulldozers processor now only placed in the third quarter than originally planned to be later, but the specific time has not yet decided upon.

This slide also noted that the positioning of bulldozers processor than the current six-core Phenom II X6, with the improved second generation Turbo Core dynamic acceleration technology, the chipset North Bridge is the most high-end 990FX (codenamed RD990), South Bridge SB950, and now the 890FX + SB850 pin-compatible, but changed to a new processor socket Socket AM3 + (AM3r2), backwards compatibility, but AM3 is no longer compatible with AM2 +, support for additional memory upgrade to DDR3-1866.

The second graph from asus, although both have been deliberately erased the frequency, but powerful friends or through other means to enlarge the basic recognition, the most high-end eight-core FX-8130P of the original frequencies as high as 3.8GHz, Turbo Core Dynamic acceleration is a staggering 4.2GHz, another piece of eight-core FX-8110 also has 3.6/4.0GHz.

Incidentally Llano APU, we have also recently confirmed that it will not Computex 2011 Computex Taipei officially released, but again wait a few days. Currently this site has got the Llano APU prototype mobile platform, is being tests, will be the first time we offer a detailed evaluation.

Biggest news "released at e3 2011", that is fucking HUGE for PC gaming.
