AMD have today announced revenue shipments of the world's first 16-core x86 processor, Bulldozer (codenamed "Interlagos"). Production of Interlagos began last month with shipments beginning to go to customers underway. The new Bulldozer chip is compatible with AMD Opteron 6100 Series platforms and infrastructure, Interlagos is expected to make a Q4 2011 appearance.




AMD say that many of the initial shipments are targeted for large custom supercomputer installations that are currently underway. Rick Bergman, senior vice president and general manager of AMD Products Group says:


This is a monumental moment for the industry as this first 'Bulldozer' core represents the beginning of unprecedented performance scaling for x86 CPUs. The flexible new 'Bulldozer' architecture will give Web and datacenter customers the scalability they need to handle emerging cloud and virtualization workloads.
