AMD announces Bulldozer delay



/ 7 years ago

Whilst the AMD conference took place at Computex 2011 in Taiwan, AMD made a statement many had expected after recent rumours. The new line of AMD “Bulldozer” processors would officially be delayed until “late summer”.

Although no official date is set, AMD suggested that we would now have to wait until late July or early August to see these new processors hit the market in an official capacity. However, the 9 series chipset and AM3+ socket motherboards will continue to be launched at full speed as people can still use existing AM3 processors with these new motherboards.

In case you have been living in a bubble for the past month or so and are unaware of what the “Bulldozer” is all about you can catch up here.

    hahaha… Even if unintentional, AMD's delay of Bulldozer can be seen as a good marketing strategy to generate attention. 😉

    Hmmmn… From what I've heard, their current BD/Zambezi CPUs cannot compete with Intel's offering as of the moment, and they need to boost the clock speeds to compete with/overtake the competition. They should hurry up or they'll face the wrath of the Ivy >:D*Taken from facebook*

    I have heard the same rumors, which do seem to be true at the moment. The problem is AMD should be defending the reputation of bulldozer, by atleast showing off some benchmarks on a engineering sample, like the way Intel did last year showing off Sandy bridge super early AnandTech – The Sandy Bridge Preview and AMD should of known this proformance gap was coming :@
