Egypt, Italy and Denmark AMD K9? Details about the first 90nm Opteron samples

As we had said, the new week brought the first comments of AMD press conference held this weekend, at which the company first introduced its roadmap until 2005 inclusively.

British The Inquirer offered the first surprise saying that Egypt, Italy and Denmark CPU cores, which are present in the AMD roadmap as the third-generation server AMD Opterons estimated in H2 2005, will have the... K9 core.

Well, a daring and interesting claim: if before it was just about improving Athens, Troy and Venus cores, which should be just AMD Opteron (Opteron 800, 200, and 100, respectively) ported to 90nm process with SOI, now it´s about the completely new core design, offering more than just DDR2 support.

As usual, only sparse information is available. They say the new chips for the future Socket 9XX will support 533/667MHz DDR2, three HyperTransport 1.05 buses. And at least three undisclosed companies are to join AMD for chipset production.

That´s all for now. But the same source also reports that the first 90nm Opteron samples should arrive early in December.

I guess it´s still early to speak of the volume shipments, however system builders (and maybe even testers) will be able to try these novelties on the eve of 2004. According to provisional information, 90nm Opterons will consume 45W max. that is actually twice less than 0.13µm consume today.
