AMD K8L: H1 2007, 65nm, Just Two Cores

According to the new information obtained from AMD's roadmaps, the next generation of processors codenamed "K8L" will arrive in H1 2007. These CPUs will work with DDR2-800 memory.

An excerpt from a company's document published by HKEPC confirms the recent rumours that K8L will signify the beginning of AMD's 65nm production instead of 90nm as we thought before. Contrary to earlier assumptions, K8L will become the base for not only quad-core, but also dual-core processors like Athlon 64 X2 and 64 FX (codenamed "Brisbane"). Moreover, there's not a word about desktop quad-core CPUs in 2007, so, perhaps, the transition to a new process technology will enable much higher clock rates and AMD won't consider increasing the amount of cores at that time.

The K8L architecture will also be used for future Semprons (Sparta core) that, according to the document, will be single-core devices scheduled to H2 2007.

But for now all of us are waiting for June 6 this year when the Socket AM2 is to be released as well as 90nm processors on Windsor, Orlean and Manila cores.
