The Bulldozer architecture consists of modules and cores. These processors have 8 modules and, each module has 2 cores making up a total of 16 cores if we are to believe AMD’s terminology.
Each module has one floating point core and two integer cores. Since Integer core are more heavily utilized than the Integer cores, AMD’s architecture makes sense. The 6200 series compete well with the Wesmetere EP series of Xeon processors from Intel. While they do not gain in performance, their price makes them attractive.
Intel has however, launched their 8 core Sandy Bridge EP Xeon processors, which has since then take lead.
Here is the List of the AMD’s bulldozer processors.
