AMD Whips Up Two New FX Processors
Turkish website Donanimhaber got its hands on a leaked roadmap of sorts and it shows AMD slotting in the FX-4130, a quad-core CPU clocked with a base frequency of 3.8GHz and a 3.9GHz Turbo clockspeed. It will feature 4MB of L2 cache and 4MB of L3 cache, a 125W TDP, and reside at the lower end of AMD's FX lineup.
The other upcoming chip is a six-core FX-6130. This one has a base frequency of 3.6GHz, Turbo clockspeed of 3.9GHz, 8MB of L2 cache, 6MB of L3 cache, and a 125W TDP.
Pricing hasn't been announced for either chip, though the FX-4130 sits below the FX-4100, which sells $115, and the FX-6130 falls in between the $145 FX-6100 and $165 FX-6200, so probably figure around $100 for the former and the $150ish for the latter. Both are scheduled to launch in the second quarter of 2012.
