    Default AMD Confirms Bulldozer Delay, Expected in 60-90 Days from Now

    During the company's Computex 2011 press conference, AMD has confirmed that the launch of the Zambezi FX processors based on the Bulldozer architecture has been delayed for late summer 2011.

    According to the Sunnyvale-based company, the first Zambezi FX processors are expected to arrive in 60 to 90 days from now, which pushes availability to early August or September.

    In the meantime, AMD will concentrate on developing its Zambezi ecosystem, and officially launched the 900-series chipset family. In about 30 days from now, all AMD's board partners are expected to have available AM3+ motherboards in their lineup.

    AMD didn't want to comment on the reasons behind this delay, but previous reports seem to indicate that the company isn't satisfied with the performance delivered by these chips, since it lags behind that delivered by the competition.

    Sources familiar with the company's plans have reported that AMD's current Bulldozer processors can function at speeds around 2.5GHz (3.5GHz in Turbo mode).

    In order to increase their frequencies, and thus performance, AMD plans to fabricate a new Bulldozer stepping, known as B3, that would presumably fix the speed issues.

    However, this takes time and the Sunnyvale-based company was forced to postpone the launch of the Zambezi FX processors.

    At this year's Computex, AMD was expected to launch four FX-series processors based on the Bulldozer architecture, two featuring eight processing cores while the other two packed six and four CPU cores, respectively.

    All four chips were targeting the high-end desktop space and were supposed to feature an unlocked multiplier, support for AMD's Turbo Core 2.0 technology and an integrated dual-channel DDR3-1866MHz controller.

    Pricing ranges from $190, for the quad-core FX-4110, to $320, for the eight-core FX-8130P.

    During the same presentation, AMD has also announced that in 2012 it will release a new Bulldozer-based APU, which will be known as Trinity. (via HardwareLuxx)
