I'd like 8-Core APUs please, with some L3 cache please, thanks.
Maybe one w/ only 128 GCN cores and a 125W TDP...
I would be quite happy with a 4 core APU that clocks to 5gig on 1.4V to be honest, ohhh and for less than $100.
Wrong the IPC will be better than on any Phenom II. The 10% improvement is not the estimate of AMD but of the idiot who wrote the piece. The IPC improvement is more likely to be 15 to 20% higher than on Piledriver. Remember , however that is only a 4 core cpu, so the multi-threaded performance will be more like a 5 core Piledriver chip , not up to the performance of an 8 core piledriver. That is why the chip does not interest me. I think I'll wait the extra year for Excavator to release on .20nm process and then the likelihood of an FX excavator with 6 or 8 cores will be more likely. I am still happy with my FX-8350 at this point.
Please stop, I'm getting all nerdy thinking about it!
The stated "10% incremental increase in performance over Piledriver" is not merely conservative it is baloney. The IPC increase will be closer to 20% over Piledriver. The frequency of the cpu will be about the same as Piledriver.
