AMD Bulldozer Dual-Interlagos Linux Benchmarks
Lately we have been talking a lot about Intel's latest Sandy Bridge processors under Linux due to their very competitive performance and interesting graphics abilities, but on the AMD side there has not been too much to talk about. On the low-end there is the intriguing Fusion APUs, but on the high-end they don't have an answer to Sandy Bridge until delivering their new "Bulldozer" products closer to the summer. Fortunately, we have the first Linux scoop and performance benchmarks from engineering samples of their 16-core Interlagos server chip.
AMD's first Bulldozer CPUs are to be launched sometime next quarter and will represent a brand new CPU design from the ground-up, the first major re-design since the original K8 Athlon 64 / Opteron CPUs. These processors will be built on a 32nm SOI process technology and are expected to boast between four and eight cores for desktops and for workstations up to a 16-core Opteron processor known as Interlagos...
