Three New Bulldozer FX CPUs Scheduled Soon on Leaked Slide

According to a leaked slide, AMD will be adding three 95 Watt options to its existing lineup CPUs: the FX 4100, FX 6100, FX-8100, FX 8120, and FX 8150.

On the high-end, the FX-8140 (4.1 GHz/3.2 GHz) will be a lower power 8-core option next to the 125 Watt FX-8150 (4.2 GHz/3.6 GHz), while the 6-core FX-6120 (4.1 GHz/3.5 GHz) will be positioned in the mid-range and the quad-core FX-4150 (4.1 GHz/3.9 GHz) will land in the entry level space of the processor series, according to Donanim Haber. As the previously released models the 8-core processor will get 16 MB cache, the 6-core 16 MB cache and the quad-core 12 MB cache.

FX-series CPUs currently have a tray price ranging from $115 for the FX-4100 (3.8 GHz/3.6 GHz) to $245 for the FX-8150.

    Will there be any performance increase? If not then they are kinda useless.

    Lower power usage it looks like. So possibly a higher overclocking capability?

  • Hopefully Piledriver revision fixes up the shortcomings. I see long term upgrade cycles for PC's if that is the case (hopefully)

    AMD, really needs to find a way to finance, more Research and Development. This is why companies like IBM and Intel dominate, there R&D basically receives a blank check. And are constantly on the cutting edge because of it.

    Also 2 new bulldozers are coming such as a quadcore fx 4170 (whooping 4.2ghz base clock and 4.3 turbo) and a six core fx 6200(3.8ghz base and 4.1 turbo) . Other specs are same as their family. Plus a $60 price drop on top of the line fx 8150 (i.e $245 to $185).

    Two new Bulldozer- powered FX CPUs will join the pantheon of world-record beating chips . The quad-core FX-4170
    has a 4.2GHz CPU with 4.3GHz Turbo
    mode while the six-core FX-6200 has a 3.8GHz base clock and a
    4.1GHz Turbo mode. Availability will
    vary by region as the company shuttles
    out the new silicon on a rolling timeline,
    but we'd start keeping our eyes peeled
    next time you're down the shops. To celebrate, AMD is hacking down the
    price of the top-end FX-8150 from $245 to $185 and you should see a similar
    price drop from outlets filter through
    shortly.
