AMD Finalizes Shipment Dates for Next-Gen Chips

AMD logoAdvanced Micro Devices has finalized shipments schedules of its future microprocessors, according to industrial sources. The world's second largest designer of x86 microprocessors will begin commercial shipments of its high-end FX-series chips based on Bulldozer micro-architecture in the second half of June and will initiate supplies of A-series code-named Llano accelerated processing units (APUs) in early July.

Shipments of AMD FX-series high-end desktop microprocessors will commence on the week of June 20th, 2011; Supplies of A-series APUs will begin on the week of July 4th, 2011, according to industrial sources. As expected, AMD's Bulldozer central processing units for desktops will become available earlier than Llano APUs. As a result, AMD will be able to create a "halo" effect for its microprocessor lineup with a high-end offering that is projected to outperform existing Phenom II chips by 50%.

AMD Bulldozer

Based on a document seen by X-bit labs, AMD plans to release four eight-core AMD FX8000-series chips, two six-core AMD FX6000-series microprocessors and two quad-core AMD FX4000-series central processing units (CPUs) this year; four chips are to be launched in Q2 2011, another four processors will be introduced in Q4 2011. The amount of quad-core and dual-core A-series APUs to be released this calendar year will be eleven, if the plans do not change.

One of the intrigues that remain is the formal launch date of the new CPUs and APUs by AMD. Some expect the company to introduce its desktops chips with Bulldozer micro-architecture at the E3 trade-show.

AMD did not comment on the news-story.

I have a tech stock suggestion I think the comnapy sanmina sci corp symbol {SANM} is a much better value here than advanced micro' the comnapy provides integrated electronics manufacturing services worldwide. the comnapy has a market cap of only 900 million but does 7 billion dollars in annual sales the comnapy also has 600 million dollars of cash on its balance sheet. the comnapy went though a massive overhaul over the last 5 years. the companies earnings are exploding but this has not be reflected in the stock price .I think the stock could get to 100 dollars a share over the next five years the stock trades at 11 dollars a share. I also believe the comnapy could be a takeover target.
