We bring you more news about AMD’s upcoming Bulldozer architecture, this time coming from the crew over at X-bit labs. According to their recent article, they have seen “a document from AMD” which claims that Bulldozer “will be fully able to rival Core i7 2600-series chips” (Sandy Bridge).
That’s a bold statement from AMD, and it marks a very exciting time for the performance and overclocking community in the near future as these two rivals battle it out. Let’s take a look at the AMD product positioning diagram from X-bit labs.
This document lists an easy comparison between what AMD will be offering and how it stacks up against Intel’s product line. Especially of interest is the far right-hand column, which lists the selling points for choosing AMD over Intel when comparing the available products from both companies. They are also including GPU processing on all of the Lynx and Brazos processors, some of which are quad core models.
AMD still plans to launch the Bulldozer processor line in Q2 2011, so we’ll see what this product launch brings. Either way, the healthy competition between AMD and Intel will only bring faster and cheaper hardware to the masses, which is always a good thing for overclockers.
