AMD Altair FX details and diagrams

Posted on Tuesday, November 28 2006 @ 19:30:18 CET by

The Inq published more info and some diagrams of AMD's upcoming 65nm quad-core Altair FX processor:
AMD'S REAL quad-core chippery, codenamed as Altair FX, needs a new F1207+ package and board to work in full glow. It will work in the existing F1207 boards such as Asus one that is set to launch this week.

But the CPU in its dual 4x8 configuration will need the Hypertransport (HT) 3.0 to make it work in its full power and this is exactly what AMD wants to use for these CPUs.

The CPU sports 2MB of L3 cache. It also supports dual link DDR 2 up to 1066MHz memory. HT 3.0 links up to 20.8 GB/s second generation I/O with PCIe Gen 2 support, enhanced crossbar switch. The kit has a separate Northbridge power supply, and boasts more accurate measurements with multiple heat points monitored, with P-state lowered if the CPU gets too hot plus a TSI digital fan control interface.
