AMD First AMD Interlagos 'Bulldozer' processors go to Cray Supercomputers, Launching Q4

Last week, we passed a momentous milestone in the life of “Bulldozer” – our first production shipments have left Singapore.

This is important because, while we have shipped thousands of parts up to now that were engineering samples, this first shipment of production parts is a revenue shipment, so Bulldozer is now officially in production.

The first parts off the line were 16-core “Interlagos” parts. We expect to be launching “Interlagos” in Q4, a little later than we had hoped, but still in time for server deployments in 2011. Between now and the launch, we have plenty of work to do. Parts are shipping to all of our key partners now, so that they can finish their final platform validation testing. There are also several large opportunities that AMD will be fulfilling prior to launch, so while this looks like everyone can relax now, the work is actually just starting.

Here, KY Wong (left) and Marshall Kwait (right) pass the first set of Interlagos processors to Joe Fitzgerald, Corporate Director of Quality for Cray. You may recall that Cray announced their Cray XE6 supercomputer earlier this year and these processors are most likely destined for one of those massive systems that will be used for supercomputing tasks like weather modeling or energy research. Such customers as GE Global Research, CSCS – the Swiss National Supercomputer Center, and the University of Edinburgh have all signed up to buy Cray XE6 supercomputers for their research needs.

Now, the real work begins, so watch for some exciting news as we pull into Q4 and keep your eyes on the server space, because “Interlagos” is now shipping.

Doubt it. For 10 years maybe.

Or are you planing on leaving this world soon?
