Some facts from AMD Developer Conference 2002 Summer

Yesterday AMD Developer Conference 2002 Summer started in Japan. This session is wholly devoted to x86-64 architecture and HyperTransport standard development.

AMD representatives readily reported that sales of new desktop Athlon Hammer processors will begin in 4Q 2002 already; server Opteron shipments are still "expected in H1 2003". Seems that Athlon brand is finally tied to ClawHammer chips, so, if you see "Athlon" without "4" or "XP" henceforth, it means 8G desktop chips.

Besides the demonstration of 4-processor system based on Opteron and the detailed report about multiprocessor mode organization principles for them, a report about current software developments for 86-64 architecture. German SuSe showed its 64-bit version of SuSe Linux for x86-64 processors.

Microsoft representatives reported about 86-64 developments, in particular, .NET server software — 64-bit versions of Datacenter Server and Enterprise Server. As for Microsoft Windows for 86-64, according to company representatives, the development is in mid-stage.

Continuing Computex 2002 plans, VIA, SiS, ALi, ATI and NVIDIA presented their roadmaps. VIA Technologies reported about its K8M400 integrated chipset, SiS presented SiS760 Northbridge with SiS301b integrated graphics, ALi reported the roadmap for two chipsets — integrated and discrete, ATI recounted its Radeon IGP 380 desktop and Radeon IGP 380M mobile integrated chipsets; and NVIDIA is also preparing two chipset versions with GeForce4 MX integrated graphics.
