AMD promises a ???completely different??? CPU architecture to succeed Barcelona

Logo AMDMilan ??“ It is fair to say that Barcelona has not turned out the CPU core many hoped it would be and lots of people inside AMD would rather forget about this evolutionary step and quickly move on to the next architecture. Custom PC was able to squeeze some more information out of AMD about this next-gen architecture. It??™s not much, but we now know for sure that it will be ???completely different??? from what AMD is selling today.

This confirmation comes from Giuseppe Amato, AMD's technical director of sales & marketing for the EMEA region, one of the very few executives in the company who occasionally provide straight-forward answers.

???If I look at the next generation architecture of our CPU, then it will definitely not be, how can I say, comparable with the Phenom. It will look completely different,??? Custom PC quoted Amato. Of course, this does not really come as a surprise and was indicated before. However, Amato also noted that the new architecture, which is expected to end up in the Bulldozer core, will ???solve problems that today we think can never be addressed by hardware."

This comment is likely to fuel a new rumor mill and if it was up to us, we??™d be betting the farm on addressing bandwidth challenges and simplify virtualization. We also believe that we could be seeing a GPU influence and AMD may be applying its Fusion LEGO concept to this new architecture ??“ in order to apply massively parallel designs.
