AMD PR department finds out Bulldozer has just 1.2 billion transistors

Posted on Monday, December 05 2011 @ 18:52:50 CET by


Three months ago AMD told everyone that Bulldozer has 2 billion transistors, but now the company's PR department is asking reviewers to correct this figure because the actual transistor count for Bulldozer is 1.2 billion transistors.
This is a bit unusual. I got an email from AMD PR this week asking me to correct the Bulldozer transistor count in our Sandy Bridge E review. The incorrect number, provided to me (and other reviewers) by AMD PR around 3 months ago was 2 billion transistors. The actual transistor count for Bulldozer is apparently 1.2 billion transistors. I don't have an explanation as to why the original number was wrong, just that the new number has been triple checked by my contact and is indeed right. The total die area for a 4-module/8-core Bulldozer remains correct at 315mm2.
