AMD Readies Opteron "Dublin" and "Macau" Processors for Launch in 2013 - Slide.



Xbit labs

After many years of relying on silicon-on-insulator (SOI) process technology, Advanced Micro Devices plans to start using bulk process technology for its state-of-the-art Opteron processors code-named Dublin and Macau in 2013, according to a slide that resembles those from AMD's roadmaps.

AMD's forthcoming Bulldozer micro-architecture based Opteron "Interlagos" and "Valencia" microprocessors are set to be made using 32nm silicon-on-insulator process technology at Globalfoundries. The code-named Terramar and Sepang chips, which will feature enhanced Bulldozer micro-architecture (also known as Piledriver) and will have up to 20 and 10 cores, respectively, will also be made using the same manufacturing technology in 2012. But the central processing units (CPUs) for servers that will succeed them in 2013 - Dublin and Macau - will be made using 28nm fabrication process with high-k metal gate, according to a slide published by CPU World web-site that resembles those from AMD's documents.

Terramar and Dublin will use the same G2012 server platform code-named Porto, whereas Sepang and Macau will utilize C2012 server platform known under Luxembourg code-name. AMD G2012 infrastructure will support quad-channel DDR3 memory as well as PCI Express 3.0 controller. The C2012 infrastructure will sport triple-channel memory controller and will also support PCIe 3.0.

Here's another slide.

Does anyone know what "heterogeneous fabric-like computing" is?

OT, but does anyone else not really like the "piledriver" moniker? Maybe I've just seen too many porn-site ads.

I think they are referring to adding the GPU into their CPU as an APU. The medium term is just I/O fusion, like socket 2011 from Intel.

Dunno about "piledriver", but "sepang" would sound much cooler as "shebang".
