The industry is on AMD's new processor architecture, "bulldozer" (Bulldozer) wistfully, looking forward to a performance can bring the outbreak of a comprehensive counter Intel, but until now, AMD has disclosed only a slight performance data of new framework .
AMD server and workstation product marketing director John Fruehe disclosed in the official blog: "From a performance point of view, if the 16 core Interlagos (Interlagos) nuclear current core Opteron 6100 Series processor 12 (code-named Magny-Cours ) compared to 33% of our estimated increase in the number of core customers to give customers up to 50% performance increase. "
Down conversion, single-core performance architecture bulldozers will be increased by 12.5% (should be the same frequency). At the same time, the new structure will support the new power management technology enables AMD to maintain power and heat continue to increase without changing the operating frequency, or more core package. Additionally, the new structure will also support 256-bit AVX instruction set and floating point operations, and add unique multi-threading.
According to product roadmap, AMD will launch in 2011 for servers, "Interlagos" processor, based on new 32nm technology and bulldozers new structure, the number of cores 12 and 16, to replace the old 45nm process architecture 8 / 12 core products Opteron 6100 series; the desktop processor platform, the first new structure to "Zambezi" (Zambezi), 8-core.
Bulldozer processor was taped in the second quarter of the success of the second half of the sample in the next year, production and release, but should only be the server version, the desktop version but also a little longer so.
