Although "Bulldozer" CPUs won't be hitting the streets until next year, AMD is already cranking up the marketing machinery for the new chip. In the first of a series of blogs devoted entirely to the new microarchitecture, John Fruehe, AMD's director of product marketing for the server/workstation products, tells us we should expect to see details of the new processor to roll out throughout the rest of the year. AMD first previewed Bulldozer back in November 2009, and according to Fruehe, the design will be presented at the upcoming Hot Chips 22 conference on August 24th.
Bulldozer represents a revamped multicore architecture for AMD's high end CPUs, and will be will be the basis of the company's Opteron and top-of-the line client CPUs in 2011. Fruehe summed up the processor thusly:
Just to make sure that everyone is up to speed on what Bulldozer is — a brand new design featuring up to 8 cores for client products and up to 16 cores for server products. Bulldozer will feature a new floating point unit that can support up to 256-bit floating point execution, which will boost the performance for technical applications that rely on floating point math.
Interlagos, the 16-core sequel to AMD's Magny-Cours Opteron, will be a Bulldozer design and will be produced on the 32nm process node. As such, it will pitted against Intel's Sandy Bridge microarchitecture, also slated to show up in 2011.
