Right in time for Ivy Bridge.
According to a recent leak by donanimhaber, we maybe seeing two new AMD FX series processors coming out soon. The FX-6130 is a hexa-core CPU which will be running at 3.6GHz (3.9GHz boost). The 6-cores will be accompanied by 6MB L2 cache and 8MB L3 cache. Pricing will be roughly $155 as it will be sitting smack int he middle of the FX-6100 and FX-6200 priced at $165 and $145 respectively.
The second processor to be out is the FX-4130 running at 3.8GHz (3.9GHz boost). This quad-core CPU will have 4MB of L2 and L3 cache and will probably be priced around $100.
Both processors are rated at 125W TDP and are set to be released in Q2 2012; right around the time for Intel’s Ivy Bridge launch. Whether this will dent the sales in Intel’s new platform remains to be seen, but don’t be surprised if AMD will accompany these two new processors with an overall drop in the price for the entire FX series processors.
