New AMD FX processors sighted in MSI support list
In March Donanimhaber published a slide with details of two FX-Series microprocessors, coming in the second quarter. According to the slide, AMD FX-4130 and FX-6130 are not going to be the fastest CPUs on the block, as such we hope that they will be less expensive than current FX-4170 and FX-6200 products. Specifications of FX-4130 and FX-6130 CPUs were recently confirmed, when MSI added their specs to CPU support list of MSI 890FXA-GD70 motherboard:
Details of AMD FX-4130 and FX-6130 models in the CPU support list match previous reports. According to them, quad-core FX-4130 will run at 3.8 GHz, and will have 4 MB L3 cache, whereas FX-6130 will be a six-core chip with 3.6 GHz clock speed and 8 MB L3. Both FX models will have 125 Watt TDP. The processors are expected to launch later this quarter.
In addition to FX-4130 and FX-6130 SKUs, the support list also includes four other interesting chips, FX-4150, FX-4200, FX-6120 and FX-8140.
FX-4200 is a 3.3 GHz quad-core processor with 125 Watt TDP, 4MB L2 and 8 MB L3 caches. This part was previously spotted on Gigabyte CPU support pages, however Gigabyte website incorrectly claimed that the CPU has 8 MB L2 cache. The FX-4200 was not on any recent AMD roadmap, as a result we don't know whether and when it's going to be released.
AMD FX-4150, FX-6120 and FX-8140 CPUs appeared in a slide, leaked by Donanimhaber in February. The slide stated that these models will be available in Q1 2012. As we already know, AMD haven't launched them in the first quarter, therefore they were either pushed to the second quarter, or canceled. All three SKUs are 95 Watt parts, and we suspect that even if AMD releases them later this quarter, there is a good chance that will see them in OEM computers, and not in retail. Specifications of these and other non yet released FX microprocessors from MSI CPU support list are presented below:
