AMD Pulls The Trigger On Interlagos

Yes, after waiting with baited breath, the 16 core Interlagos Bulldozer chips are now shipping for revenue, with Cray snatching up their's for several SuperComputer projects around the world. From AMD Blogs and John Fruehe:

 

Last week, we passed a momentous milestone in the life of “Bulldozer” – our first production shipments have left Singapore.This is important because, while we have shipped thousands of parts up to now that were engineering samples, this first shipment of production parts is a revenue shipment, so Bulldozer is now officially in production.

 

Go here for the full scoop and a pic or two.

This is of course not the Zambezi 8 core enthusiast desktop chip but word from VR-Zone is that Zambezi will be officially announced on Sept 17th(grains of salt sprinkled liberally). Since server and desktop have a slightly different qualification process we can actually expect to see Zambezi systems first, hopefully around next month as former-CEO Thomas Seifert was quoted as saying both desktop and server started shipping in August in some quantity.
