AMD’s Atom-Mauling Bobcat And High-End Bulldozer Chips

Sure, AMD’s sorta revelling in getting handed $US1.25 billion by Intel, but more importantly, they’ve just revealed the future of AMD chips: The promised Atom competitor Bobcat and a new high-end architecture called Bulldozer.

Bulldozer is AMD’s new server architecture, also slated for 2011 which uses a new design with two “tightly linked cores” as the heart. You can read about it in way more detail over at Ars, though for now, Stokes says it’s still hard to tell how competitive they’re going to be with Intel’s 2011 lineup. Guess we’ll see.
