The Tech Report has posted quite a few of the slides from AMD’s HotChips presentation, which gives an overview of the way this architecture has been put together.  No one got any sweet die shots but AMD has done a very good job at tantalizing us with enough information to make informed guesses about their soon to be released processors but still leaves us guessing at specifics, for example what the real world effects of fused multiply-add units will be.

You can see what Josh thinks about this in his coverage or on PC Perspective Podcast # 119.

“Today, AMD revealed many specifics about its next-gen Bulldozer microarchitecture, which introduces some radical new concepts in CPU organization. Rather than publish with fewer specifics early, we waited until after AMD’s Hot Chips talk to publish more detailed information.”
