AMD Bulldozer enginering sample spotted

The sample is an eight core CPU made to 32m process technology, with clock rate of 3GHz, 8Mb of L3 cache, support of DDR3-1866

If below pictures are true then what has recently published on OBRovsky Blogspot is nothing else than engineering sample of AMD FX-series processors, a.k.a Bulldozer. The model was identified differently by CPU-Z and HWiNFO32 tools: FX-8130P and FX-3214 respectively. This sample is an eight core CPU made using 32nm process technology.

Just to remind you, Bulldozer based processors, codename Zambezi, are positioned as high-end solutions. Performance-wise, it is early to tell whether these CPUs will be able to compete against Sandy Bridge or even Sandy Bridge-E products.
