AMD To Ship First Four 65nm Processors This Year
According to the information, obtained by HKEPC from motherboard vendors, AMD is going to ship first 65nm processors already in December 2006. Though in retail they might be available only in Q1'2007.
The following 65nm dual-core models are expected first:
- Athlon X2 64 4200+, 2.2GHz, 2x512KB L2
- Athlon X2 64 4400+, 2.2GHz, 2x1MB L2
- Athlon X2 64 4600+, 2.4GHz, 2x512KB L2
- Athlon X2 64 4800+, 2.4GHz, 2x1MB L2

The company will continue to manufacture senior models, according to the 90nm process, at least until the beginning of the next year:
- Athlon X2 64 5000+, 2.6GHz, 2x512KB L2
- Athlon X2 64 5200+, 2.6GHz, 2x1MB L2
- Athlon X2 64 5400+, 2.8GHz, 2x512KB L2
- Athlon FX 62. 2.8GHz, 2x1MB L2
The Brisbane core based 65nm novelties are expected to feature 42% better energy consumption. Already in H1'2007 AMD plans to move its dual-core CPUs to the mass market and to replace the single-core solutions (which are not to be moved to the 65nm process) in this segment by dual-core ones in H2. Note that Intel has nearly achieved this already by these days.
Speaking of budget 65nm processors, codenamed Sparta, they are expected in the market in H2'2007.
