Die-Shot: Next-Gen 8-Core AMD Orochi Bulldozer
This is the eight-core version of Bulldozer.
In August AMD gave us a brief preview of what's to come from its next-generation technology known as Bulldozer.
Now we get to see one of the first early die-shots from an eight-core "Orochi" processor that's based on Bulldozer technology and built on the 32nm process.
Unlike Llano, this chip won't be a part of the Fusion initiative to integrate the GPU inside the die. But also unlike Llano, Bulldozer is based on next-generation AMD technology, while Llano shares its ties with Phenom CPUs.
Either way, we're expecting big things from AMD in 2011.
