Next Wednesday we will get our first look at the HSA enabled Opteron X Series, otherwise known as Berlin.  AMD will be unveiling the processor at the Red Hat Summit in San Francisco with an X2100 Opteron running on a Linux environment that is based on the Fedora Project.  We have very recently had a chance to see the desktop equivalent, Kaveri, in action but this will be the first example of AMD's heterogeneous computing on a server.  Keep your eyes peeled for our coverage, in the mean time you can get a preview at The Register.

How many cores. If it is more than the 4 core APUs that we have now does that pave the way for them to start creating 8 core FX series APUs

ha- hsa was never for faster and better desktop standalone desktop chips. - nor does it solve the issue of compute loss once a better standalone video card is put in place.

the gpu component drops and then you brick out part of the chip.

and we still have the biggest issue- chipset for the motherboard. no movement there since 990fx - so we use the FM series?

no something new has to be announced- and i don;'t see it in the cards ( or the slides)
