AMD's 8 Core Bulldozer Bulldozes Intel's i7 950

AMD recently divulged performance figures to its partners, seen by Donanimhaber.

  It is reported that an 8-core processor based on the "Bulldozer" high-performance CPU architecture is pitched by its makers to have 50% higher performance than existing processors such as the Core i7 950 (4 cores, 8 threads), and Phenom II X6 1100T (6 cores).

The Bulldozer Processors that will be first making its way into th market will be carrying the code name Zambesi. It follows a 32nm process technology in the form of processors and will support a new socket namely Socket AM3. The processors will be available in the flavours of four, six and eight-cores. The top segment of the line is naturally expected to be the 8-core processors. The expected power usage is about 125 watts running at 3GHz upwards with 8-cores.

Lets hope these can overclock really well as the enthusiast grade Sandybridges will be out later this year.
