Not sure if this was already posted.
I find it kind of interesting that they're dropping the Bobcat cores down to 28nm before the Bulldozer cores.
theres probably a test run bobcat is a derivitive of stars if i remember correctly so since there a less complex design means less likely for something to go wrong on 28nm cpu so im guessing its much like the 4770 was for AMD gpus side of things when 40nm hit.
That makes sense.
28nm is the half-node of 32nm and AMD have stated that they will not make their high-end cpu's on half nodes only gpu's and low-power cpu's.
wasn't bocbcat supposed to be a derviative of bulldozer?
According to this,
Bobcat is it's own architecture meant for very low level devices.
bobcat is a stripped down k10.5, likely has more in commons with the old k8's with the improvements in k10 series cpus. JfAMD covered this on anandtech.com a while ago.
Link please? I would love to read it.
I dunno, I don't go over there much but its in the cpu/overclocking subforum. Just search for jfamd posts on bobcat. Shouldn't be many of them.
