Default AMD 2012 Desktop Roadmap Leaked

http://vr-zone.com/articles/amd-2012...ked/13081.html

Arrgh AMD screwed us once again but lucky me not bought AM3+ motherboard yet, I thought AM3+ will last for years but until the roadmap leaked unfortunately revealed AM3+ motherboards and Bulldozer CPUs will have the shortest life to last about 6 months until around Q2 2012 to be replaced by next generation successors socket FM2 and Komodo CPUs with up to 10 cores.

I expected Komodo to use AM3+ but that will not be the case so guess no major upgrade for my PC this year. I probably be wait until next year for FM2 motherboard and 10 core Komodo, my Phenom II 940 is doing fine at the moment.

REALLY wished AMD see common sense to cancelled AM3+ and Bulldozer months ago and push forward Komodo to Sept launch.

I mean, I think it was fortunate for AM3 owners to even get AM3+ for a little while. It's only natural that they will release a brand new socket, which will probably have a similar lifetime to that of AM3.

I knew 2012 Bulldozer would use a new socket early last year, it was on their official roadmap IIRC. You've just gotta do more research next time. I do agree that they could have brought forward the new socket for the 2011 Bulldozer launch seeing it's been delayed a bit, but considering it relys on a fully integrated NB (which Bulldozer 2011 doesn't have) this was impossible.

No it was not mentioned on AMD 2012 roadmap back in November 2010 when Komodo was first mentioned, you will noticed that it mentioned "8 cores" but never mentioned either socket FM2 or 10 cores.

I'm not talking about specific details, just that they already mentioned new platforms for Komodo (Bulldozer 2). They didn't mention new platforms for Trinity until recently, though.

The platforms were "announced" over a month ago,

http://www.alltechnologynews.com/amd...e-in-2012.html

But before that it had already been made clear that BD2 would use a different platform ie. socket.

I knew about them too, the next gen bulldozers are apparently going to be much faster. They also do not appear to be effect by the delay as much as the 1st gen BZ.

Ha...could we get Bulldozer out before worrying about the NEXT Bulldozer? This is AMD's way of distracting us from the harsh reality that they ain't puttin' out.
