    Default AMD Realizes That Bulldozer Has 800 Million LESS Transistors Than It Thought!



    This is a bit unusual. I got an email from AMD PR this week asking me to correct the Bulldozer transistor count in our Sandy Bridge E review. The incorrect number, provided to me (and other reviewers) by AMD PR around 3 months ago was 2 billion transistors. The actual transistor count for Bulldozer is apparently 1.2 billion transistors. I don't have an explanation as to why the original number was wrong, just that the new number has been triple checked by my contact and is indeed right. The total die area for a 4-module/8-core Bulldozer remains correct at 315 mm˛.

    They ought to reconsider who they've got for engineers.

    This entire debacle is an embarrassment imo. Intel can take the next year off and be in great shape. I met Anan at AMD Tech day and he is on the ball.

    WOW, that is huge mistake. maybe all the missing performance from bulldozer is in those imaginary 800 million transistors....

    I hear that they're tacking posters up all over town, looking for lost transistors.

    c'mon it was just a minor math error, kind of like the floating point errors on the original Pentium chips
