AMD has updated their Blogs to include info leading up the long-awaited launch of the Bulldozer 8 core CPU - known as FX Series. There is of course lots of hype and secrecy involved in this oh-so-important launch for the Number two X86 CPU maker.
The CPU has broken the world record for overclocking and seemed to have attracted SLI back to the AMD platform even though nVidia has left the x86 chipset market. This means the launch is imminent and could well happen as soon as next week, with several stories around the web stating the launch is going to happen on Oct 12. If so this will beat the vaunted SandyBridge E processor from the incumbent Intel.
There have rumored benchmarks appearing all over the web but most have been exposed as fake but we should expect competitive perf from the new chips as members of the overclocking record team stated. So all of you drooling for some FX-goodness have a very short time to wait.
