Component manufacturer AMD has confirmed that it will reveal new details on its two next-generation x86 processor core implementations today.

The two new designs, codenamed ‘Bulldozer’ for high-performance PC and server markets, and ‘Bobcat’ for low-power notebook and small form-factor desktop markets, were designed from the ground-up to address specific customer requirements and computer workloads.
“In my opinion, Bulldozer and Bobcat are not only two of the greatest technical achievements in AMD’s rich history, but two of the most important for the industry as well,” said Chekib Akrout, senior vice president and general manager, AMD Technology Development.

“With CPUs and APUs built from these core implementations, we expect our customers to deliver a new wave of innovative PC form factors and high-performance computing experiences.”

The x86 architecture lies at the heart of AMD’s new computing strategy. As a result, consumers can expect some hefty announcements from the company regarding the specifications behind these new processors.
