AMD Moves To 65nm Technology
Launching the next generation of energy-efficient computing, AMD announced the transition to 65nm process technology, beginning with the immediate availability of energy-efficient AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual-core desktop processors. The move to 65nm process technology enables AMD to produce more processors on a 300mm wafer, for increased production capacity, while continuing to aggressively scale performance and reduce power consumption. By mid-2007, AMD expects to be fully converted to 65nm production at Fab 36.
OEMS offering systems ready for Microsoft Windows Vista with 65nm AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processors immediately, and beginning in Q1 of 2007, include Acer, Dell, Founder, Gateway, HP, Lenovo, Packard Bell, and TongFang, as well as leading system builders worldwide.
Building on AMD’s 90nm high-performance, low-power Silicon-on-Insulator (SOI) technology, AMD’s 65nm SOI technology takes full advantage of our 90nm high-performance technology, scalability and power efficiency. The move to 65nm allows for reductions in line widths which enable AMD to produce more processors on a 300mm wafer, for increased production capacity. AMD’s 65nm processes have evolved from a technology agreement with IBM that has been highly beneficial to AMD.
Pricing for the 65nm AMD Athlon 64 dual-core processors 5000+, 4800+, 4400+, and 4000+ are $301, $271, $214, and $169, respectively in 1KU PIB.
