AMD Plans New FX Processors to Go Up Against Ivy Bridge

By - Source: Donanimhaber | B 9 comments

AMD will be reacting to the launch of Intel's Ivy Bridge processors with four new FX CPUs that are slotted for a Q2 release.

In the mainstream, AMD will be adding the FX-6130 to complement its the 6-core FX-6100 and FX-6200 with a 3.9 GHz/ 3.6 GHz version. In the entry level area, AMD is now listing the quad-core FX-4130 with 3.9 GHz/3.8 GHz. Both processors are 125 watt parts.

When released, AMD will be offering a total of eight 32 nm, Zambezi-based FX processors - three quad-core CPUs, three hexacore processors and two eight-core versions - spanning a packed price range from $115 to $245. We would expect AMD to adjust its processor pricing closer to the Ivy Bridge launch as well.

The new 4130 model could turn out to be a new budget model as it will only include half of the 8 MB L3 cache of all other FX CPUs.

    Aren't the TDPs of these processors too high to be considered entry level - whatever the pricing?

    How can AMD expect to win this? Seriously?

    My soccer team competed in one event recently we lost by 9-1...
    Maybe we should change the name of our team to AMD.

    Now you're just being immature. You just need to train harder

    My point was, AMD may be in the game but they are hardly competing for the win.

    I get that AMD are adding more processors to the line, but to say that they are going "up against Ivy Bridge" is just ridiculous.

    bulldozer/piledriver path seems a bit like pentium4. Impressive clocks but crap performance. AMD appear to be a sinking ship as far as competing on performance

    it is stupid to spend a lot of money for intel configuration just to play games..the intel is the best for performance..but the amd is the best for the money..the price is to high for the intel..the manufacturing of the intel chip for examle the new i7 3960x and the price of 1000$ it is not real..you think that a 2mm of silicium and 0,02 kg aluminium is worth 1000$ no..or the technology...the real price for manufacturing the new lga 2011 chips is not more then 80$
