AMD may announce Bulldozer at CeBIT

U.S. CPU and chip manufacturer AMD will be unveiling its new processors at CeBIT 2011. These new models are said to outperform the current top models of its Phenom-II series by 50 percent,

"offer native DDR3-1866 memory support"

AMD Confirmed to Release New CPUs at CeBIT, Probably Bulldozer Chips - Softpedia

CeBIT starts tomorrow Mar 1 in Hannover, Germany.

I guess we will see this week if they have a winner.

i am going to have to update my motherboard when these come out, i hav an AM3 CPU in an AM2+ but i take it the new bulldozer won't be compatible with AM2+.

I wish that a motherboard would be all that I needed, but I would also have to have new ram. But, before I consider any of that, I'll have to wait to see what the prices are. Then again, may this will drive Phenom prices down even more.

Hope its competitive with Intel's Sandybridge so prices come down.

Its not compatible with anything. Requires a new AM3+ motherboard. I hope they also release a new motherboard chip with PCIe-3, USB3 and SATA III support. I like the upgrade of the memory controller but need to see the official specs when it is released.

Why in Germany? Everybody knows that the world revolves around the US and if its not released at a major US trade show then it will be a failure.

It would have to be. Probably a little less performance and a couple of dollars less. That's been the way for the past few years with AMD.

ahh dam, still its worth it, im sure it will be cheaper then an overpriced intel build anyway. Just hoping they release them as soon as possible.

Been seeing some rumors/speculation that the motherboards may start showing up in April, which unless things have changed those with an AM3 CPU can move to the new board (and only need new ram if using DDR2) when they do and just do a CPU swap when the new CPU's come out.

I feel pretty confident these chips will be very good performers, especially Zambezi, the desktop Bulldozer. I mean look at how badly Fusion is destroying Sandy Bridge? Also consider this is a 100% new architecture from the ground up, so there's no reason to look at AMD's patterns with Phenom to identify performance.

If the Bulldozer chips are 'at least' as good as their mobile counterparts, they should walk all over first gen core i7, and IMO very likely the newest as well.

Numbers don't lie, unless AMD really goofs up manufacturing, I think we may have a real winner here. 8 real cores, 32nm, shared resources, all the old redunancies gone... it just sounds perfect. Also consider what's been said that, these dual core-modules perform only 6-8% 'less' than a native dual core. Using that math, you could easily suggest a minimal performance increase of 33%, but as we know it absolutely must be better than that, with shared resources, faster memory, larger cache, both L2 and L3.

I don't mean to try to sell AMD here, but I see no reason not to think these things will be very competitive, especially consider how mean the Fusion APU's are. They obviously got this right, 6 years in the making they'd better.
