[] AMD's 2012 - 2013 Server Roadmap: Abu Dhabi, Seoul & Delhi CPUs

We've got a server roadmap update from AMD courtesy of its Financial Analyst Day here in Santa Clara, California. The changes to the 2012 - 2013 roadmap aren't all that startling. Obviously this year AMD delivers top to bottom Bulldozer based CPUs. Interlagos, which we've already reviewed, features between 4 and 16 Bulldozer cores (2 - 8 modules). There are 2 and 3 module variants as well: Zurich and Valencia, respectively. All three of these Bulldozer based CPUs fall in the Opteron 6200 line.

Originally AMD had talked about introducing a new G2012 platform and delivering 10 & 20-core solutions called Sepang and Terramar. Those plans have been scrapped for the moment and what we get instead is a drop-in replacement for existing Opteron 6200 CPUs.

Take the current 6200 lineup, upgrade the CPU cores to Piledriver and you get a high level look at AMD's near-term server strategy. The sockets remain the same, as do the core counts, but performance should go up. AMD hasn't given us any more detail as to what Piledriver fixes other than to say that it's a higher IPC version of Bulldozer.
