AMD FX-4130 and FX-6130 CPUs are in the works
In February AMD launched two FX-Series microprocessors, quad-core FX-4170 and six-core FX-6200. Compared to older FX-4100 and FX-6100 models, new chips sported increased stock frequencies, up to 4.2 GHz and 3.8 GHz respectively, albeit at the expense of higher 125 Watt TDP. According to a slide posted by Donanimhaber, two more quad- and six-core FX processors will be available next month. AMD FX-4130 and FX-6130 will not be the fastest in the 4000 and 6000 series, as their purpose is to fill a gap between 5-month old FX-4100 and FX-6100 SKUs, and FX-4170 / FX-6200 chips from last month.
AMD FX-4130 will come with 4 CPU cores, clocked at 3.8 GHz. The processor will support Turbo Core feature, which may boost core clocks by another 100 MHz. The size of last level cache on the FX-4130 is cut in half in comparison with other FX-4000 series CPUs.
AMD FX-6130 is an eight-core model with 3.6 GHz stock, and 3.9 GHz clock speeds. This SKU has standard 8 MB L3 cache, and fits into 125W thermal envelope.
Prices of FX4130 and FX-6130 CPUs were not released. Please see below for specifications of current FX-4000 and FX-6000 series processors:
