AMD FX-series processor specs leaked

Details on upcoming Bulldozer chips

The closer we get to the launch day of AMD FX-series processors based on Bulldozer cores, the more information appears on the Internet

According to media sources, there will be eight AMD Bulldozer-based products released at first, featuring eight-core FX-8130P and FX-8110 models, six-core FX-6110 and quad-core FX-4110 models. All of them are expected to appear in the end of Q2 2011, most likely in June.

General details for processors specified above include:

  • Supports Socket AM3+
  • Up-to 8Mb of L3 cache
  • 4.6 or 8MB of L1 cache (depends on core-number)
  • Integrated memory controller (DDR3-1866)
  • Supports Turbo Core technology
  • Unlocked cores will bring great overclocking potential
  • TDP of 95W (TDP 125W for FX-8130P processor)

Unfortunately, there are no data on processor clocks, however, it can be suggested to set around 3 GHz mark. Despite the fact that prices have not been revealed, AMD positions its product to compete against 2nd generation of Intel Core i5 and i7 processors, which gives us a rough estimate.

AMD FX-series processor, codename Zambezi, will be manufactured at GlobalFoundries using 32nm SOI process technology.
