AMD FX-Series CPUs detailed, allegedly set for October release

AMD logoAMD's highly-anticipated FX-Series processors (codename Zambezi), the first chips to be based on the Bulldozer architecture, will apparently miss the Q3 release plan, as a report is saying that the launch day of the CPUs is now scheduled for October.

Fortunately it's not all bad Bulldozer news as today we also get to contemplate on an allegedly real chart that provides details on no less than seven FX-Series models - four octo-core chips, two hexa-core and two quad-core.

Seen below, AMD's incoming FX-Series CPUs are made by GlobalFoundries on 32nm process technology, come in an AM3+ package, and have a built-in dual-channel DDR3-1866 memory controller, 1MB of L2 cache per core (so, 4/6/8MB on total), an unlocked multiplier and the Turbo Core 2.0 technology that will boost clock speed depending on load and the application running.

The flagship of the FX line is supposed to be the FX-8150 which boasts a core clock of 3.6 GHz, a Turbo clock of 4.2 GHz and a TDP of 125W. This one would be followed by two versions of the FX-8120 (3.1 GHz base clocks / 4 GHz Turbo), one with a 95W TDP and one topping 125W, and the entry-level octo-core FX-8100 (2.8 GHz base / 3.7 GHz Turbo / 95W TDP).

The hexa-core FX-6120 and quad-core FX-4120 have a TDP of 95W but unknown clocks, while the FX-6100 and FX-4100 come with the same TDP and feature base/Turbo clocks of 3.3/3.9 GHz and 3.6/3.8 GHz, respectively. Given the delay until Q4 it's not surprising that there are no prices to accompany the processor models.
