Brand new Phenoms coming!!! 8-core!

Postby CoachAub » Mon Dec 26, 2011 1:17 pm

I just read this on another site and it got me excited about a new approach from AMD. The article does not give much detail but the leak leads to very interesting and hopeful speculation. I'm guessing they will be Bulldozers with new "stepping" with improved clocks. I just don't think that will be enough though. So, I'm hoping they have something else up their sleeves to create a better product in the near future that uses AM3+ sockets.

Was excited until you said new bulldozers. They would have made better cpus just putting Thuban on a 28nm process and ramping up the clocks and making a true 8 core cpu.

It's hard to say if they are really bulldozers or not. It depends on what they are doing to these chips--if it were something completely new, they would be a long way off imo. So, I'm thinking they're changing something at the foundry. Could they implement previous phenom tech into the bulldozers at the plant?

I'm thinking, they should increase the L1 and L2 cache on die back to Phenom 2 levels. This would likely improve benches in today's software.

I found the original Chinese website link with the leak. The chart is the only thing I can read. It is disappointing.

Phenom ii x8 2820, 95w, 2.8ghz, 2MB L2, 8MB L3, A1 stepping.
Phenom ii x8 3020, 125w, 3.0ghz, 2mb L2, 8mb L3, B0 stepping.

Who knows how reliable the chart is.
