Gateway Server Offerings featuring Opteron 6200 processors with Valencia and Interlagos cores
AMD did announce the company will ship Bulldozer-powered Opterons for revenue sometimes in August, and the server-offerings are traditionally put to offer several weeks before the actual product ship. The story originated on XtremeSystems.org forums, and quickly spread throughout the Internet.
AMD Valencia / Interlagos Overview from AMD Financial Analyst Day 2010. In meanwhile, AMD reduced the Bulldozer performance estimates from "up to 50%" to "up to 35%"
The company will release Opteron 6220, 6234, 6272 and the 6276. All processors are based on the 16-core Interlagos die (MCM, with 8 CPU cores per die glued together), but they vary in terms of unlocked cores. It looks like AMD will even offer an eight core die in the higher-end Socket G34, which to us means - that the company wants to sell every die coming off GlobalFoundries' 32nm SOI node, even if 50% of processing cores is disabled.
