We told you a few days ago about AMD’s Bulldozer lineup of processors, which have been expected to launch for quite a while, would make it out by June this year. That has now been accentuated by what seems to be leaked boxart for the AMD FX series CPUs.
The eight-core beast
Folks over at Swedish website Nordic Hardware seem to have gotten their hands on some of the boxart images, and here’s what we have learnt from taking a look. First off, the familiar Black Edition moniker for high-end processors with unlocked multipliers returns. While an eight-core processor with its multipliers unlocked certainly sounds intimidating, it should facilitate some pretty good overclocks.
The more reasonable quad-core
Secondly, we can only see eight (oct?) core processors and quad-core ones, which might mean the hex-cores will make it out later. Either way, we’ll have to wait it out for some official announcements.
