AMD Centurion: 5GHz On Air At $800

Hexus reports that AMD will release the Centurion FX at 5GHz on air, and rumored to be $795 in price.  

 

So how about this as a rumour for a Friday morning? Though AMD will never go on record and confirm this, we have it on good authority that the chip-maker will soon be releasing a super-FX chip. Based on the same 'Vishera' architecture powering the current FX-8350, which runs at up to 4.2GHz, this new FX, codenamed 'Centurion', is to be made available in very limited quantities.

AMD: Moore's Law Ending?

The Inquirer reports that AMD's John Gustafson believes Moore's Law is coming to an end.

 

According to Gustafson, the transistor density afforded by a process node defines the chip's economic viability. He said, "We [AMD] want to also look for the sweet spot, because if you print too few transistors your chip will cost too much per transistor and if you put too many it will cost too much per transistor. We've been waiting for that transistion from 28nm to 20nm to happen and it's taking longer than Moore's Law would have predicted."

A6-1450 Quad APU Is Temash

Fudzilla reports that AMD's A6-1450 APU is a Temash part.  Its for tablets and clocks at 1GHz.

 

The new Temash quad core, at least the one clocked at 1GHz, will end up branded as AMD A6-1450. It has Radeon HD 8280 graphics and the Larne reference system comes with 2GB DDR3 1066 memory. The AMD A6-1450-based tablet (hybrid) in AMD’s presentation delivers scores of 981 and 3123 in 3DMark and PCMark respectively. Last generation samples, powered by the Z-60 APU clocked at 1GHz (40nm Zacate) with 2x2GB DDR3 1066, HD 6250 graphics and Windows 7 scored 455 and 1914 in 3DMark Vantage and PCMark Vantage respectively.

AMD Intros FX-6350 and FX-4350 Vishera Class CPUs

Xbit details AMD releasing new Vishera class CPUs the FX-6350 and FX-4350 which are 6 and 4 core CPUs respectively. 

 

The new AMD FX processors available for pre-order at ShopBLT online store are FX-4350 as well as FX-6350. The new central processing units feature much higher (200MHz – 400MHz) clock-speeds than previous offerings and therefore it is logical to expect decent performance gains over predecessors. AMD FX-4350 costs $142.86, whereas AMD FX-6350 is priced at $154.76.

AMD Reveals 5 To 25W 28nm Jaguar CPU

The Inquirer reports on the successor to Bobcat, Jaguar.  Its a 28nm process chip with 4 cores.

 

Jaguar has improvements over Bobcat in terms of instructions per cycle (IPC), clock frequency, and power consumption. The load-store unit has been redesigned for significant performance and power improvements over AMD’s previous generation products, and the floating point unit natively supports 128-bit operation, according to the presentation.
