Now the next question is what clock speed will that go upto on the 90nm process?
2.6-2.8Ghz A64 sure would be nice.
And the next question, how will this affect the temperatures? Smaller die size means smaller area that conducts heat..
I'm sure coolermaster will just bring out a copper heatpipe multifanned heatsink that takes up half a server case and we'll be alright
Well the question i wanna know is how much more will it cost?
I already paid a good 500 for my XP3200+ last year and clocked it at 2.6 stable. If they offer a reasonable price for these processors then im willing to speng a grand next year for upgrades.
Those are so big thats crazy. In the future, if we have 50MB L2 Cache, does that mean our cpus will actually be bigger? I thought things get smaller over time - in our industry anyways.
I wonder when they'll release a Socket-754 Athlon64 running at 2.4GHZ. They allready released it for the Athlon64-FX but that doesn't mean they have good yields with it yet.
Why no heat spreaders? Hmmm...
When is the Socket 8XX coming out? Its ment to be a much more highend version of the A64, I recall reading the 7XX was going to be a more budge version.
The heatspreader was removed on purpose to show the size of the die. The final chips based on whichever core will have a heatspreader.
& Agissi, I think you mean Socket-939. It should come out around the end of this month.
512K of L2 @ 83mm²
After the picture, a first benchmark on a 0.09 Athlon64 (3500+)
AMD 3500+ S939 2.2G L2=512KB Rev : D0 90nm First TEST
Apparently AMD is using the 0.09 die shrink to add more features rather then just shrink the Die.
At least that's what is reported HERE.
This should be interesting.
Review of a 0.09 3500+ Athlon64 on Socket-939 (BabelFish translated)
It runs a little bit hotter then a 0.13 3500+ but not that much.
kool didou thx
