AMD kills four Zambezi processors


The recent arrival of the updated Piledriver architecture has prompted AMD to retire four more Zambezi chips.

In addition to the already announced retirement of the AMD FX-8150, FX-6200 and FX-4170 chips, AMD will soon cease the production and sales of the AMD FX-8120 (eight cores at 3.1 GHz), FX-6100 (six cores at 3.3 GHz), FX-4130 (four cores at 3.8 GHz) and FX-4100 (four cores at 3.6 GHz).

The chips will disappear by the end of Q2 2013 and will be replaced by the current Piledriver-based FX processors along with some more models.
