AMD Bulldozer FX clock speeds and benchmarks leaked

As the launch of the AMD FX-series microprocessors code-named "Zambezi" gets nearer, more information about the chips powered by Bulldozer micro-architecture emerge on the web. Based on a recent leak, one of AMD's premium eight-core FX chip will operate at 2.80GHz in default mode and will be able to almost match Intel Corp.'s six-core Core i7-980X Extreme Edition processor in terms of performance.
A major maker of mainboards has reportedly released some of the technical specs and benchmark results of AMD FX 8110 microprocessor for internal use. The information somehow leaked to general public and was republished by a number of web sites (1, 2). Although the specifications of the chip as well as its benchmark results come from strictly unofficial sources, there are indirect evidences that confirm that the information published is at least partially correct. Furthermore, certain specifications revealed by the screenshot are confirmed by AMD's internal documents seen by X-bit labs.
