AMD Pitching Bulldozer against Intel Sandy Bridge?

Specifications of AMD’s Bulldozer line of processors reveal that the company is preparing to give a tough time to Intel’s Sandy Bridge offerings.

Turkish review website published a review of the AMD FX-8130P with a series of benchmark tests, which are considered somewhat meaningless by experts.

The blog also informed that AMD Bulldozer processors will come in eight core, six core and four core divisions.

AMD has refused to comment on the tests but said that “We recommend waiting for our production parts for accurate technical specs and performance metrics.”

The tests were carried out on the AMD FX-8130 P eight core processor with clock speeds of 3.2 GHz.

Analysis of the benchmarks posted by the Turkish website done by Hot Hardware (opens in new tab), revealed that the testing was carried out by poor choice of benchmarks and was practically worthless.

“What looks like solid data is rendered useless due to poor benchmark choices, less-than-full disclosure, and an apparent lack of knowledge about newer tests that have replaced old standards due to a need to support multi-core processing,” Hot Hardware reveals.

It was also revealed that the processors won’t have a Q3 launch as AMD had planned earlier but will be dished out in October.
