AMD starts talking about Bulldozer 2 architecture

Posted on Thursday, November 04 2010 @ 19:23:32 CET by


X-bit Labs reports AMD revealed details about its next-generation server plans. Bulldozer is expected to arrive in the second half of 2011, and sometime in 2012 the firm plans to release updated Bulldozer processors that will absorb I/O functionality of chipsets. The Bulldozer NG is slated for around 2013 - 2014 and between 2014-2016 AMD plans to move to modular SoCs to begin to enable a true heterogeneous architecture.
Sometime in 2012, around two years from now, the Sunnyvale, California-based chip designer will launch a completely new server platform currently known as G42/G44. The next-generation platform will continue to utilize Bulldozer micro-architecture initially, but microprocessors will absorb I/O functionality of chipsets, thus, further simplifying the server platforms. Obviously, there still will be external I/O controllers, but there will be no more central hub in servers. Around the same timeframe AMD also plans to release GPUs seriously optimized for server needs. Around 2013 - 2014 the world's second largest maker of chips will introduce the so-called Bulldozer NG micro-architecture (Bulldozer 2) and new processors on its base. The first Bulldozer NG-powered chips will be compatible with G42/G44 infrastructure.

The most revolutionary change of AMD's server platform will take place in 2014 - 2015 - 2016 when the company introduces microprocessors with integrated Bulldozer x86 cores, high-speed stream processing units and input/output functionality. Later on the company will also switch from Bulldozer NG cores to a future micro-architecture, which can be called post-Bulldozer NG.
