More details have surfaced today about AMD's highly anticipated FX-series processors, codenamed Zambezi. The latest tidbit comes courtesy of Turkish site DonanimHaber, which has been the source of quite a few AMD leaks recently, and basically details the entire lineup complete with their respective clock speeds -- something that had eluded us until now.
According to the report there are eight FX-series models on the cards comprising four eight-core FX-81xx parts, two six-core FX-61xx processors, and a couple of quad-core FX-41xx models. The chips are all based on GlobalFoundries' 32nm process technology, come in an AM3+ package, and have a built-in dual-channel DDR3-1866 memory controller. They also feature 1MB of L2 cache per core, 8MB of shared L3 cache, and unlocked multipliers.
The top of the range eight-core model is supposed to be the FX-8150, which boasts a core clock of 3.6 GHz (up to 4.2GHz in Turbo mode) and has a TDP of 125W. The FX-8120 comes next in standard (125W) and low-power (95W) variants, both featuring 3.1-4GHz clock speeds, while the FX-8100 offers 2.8-3.7GHz clock speeds and a TDP of 95W.
The six-core FX-6120 and quad-core FX-4120 have a TDP of 95W but there's no information on their clock speeds. Meanwhile, the FX-6100 and FX-4100 come with the same TDP and feature base/Turbo clocks of 3.3/3.9 GHz and 3.6/3.8 GHz, respectively. Now for the bad news, DonanimHaber says to have heard that AMD will miss its initial Q3 release plan, and as a result the FX-series is now scheduled for an October launch.
