I really hope that the .13 process will cool the CPUs down a bit compared to the current ones...
Almost time to sell my old rig to my flatmate and upgrade to Thoroughbred
That is incorrect. The date is not nearly that soon.

AMD's own roadmap projected release in the ½ of 2002
Try refreshing on the story.
Notice the UPDATE2
That's your substantiation?
that is the "substation" I wished to show you because quite frankly it was the easiest one.
TSMC has not been able to move over to the .13micron production size and that is why the GF4 is .15micron, the ATi R250 is delayed as well as a whole slew of other companies being put on hold.
I spoke with a friend in AMD about this and he assured me that the date is not this month.

I don't see any reference to the article on your website.

Of course there is no reference to it, I don't waste reader time with useless speculation.
AMD has their own manufacturing plants and are in no way dependant on TSMC...
Furthermore AMD has already displayed their next gen *HAMMER* CPU; it was the first A0 core made on .13 micron so I'm quite sure they already know how to build on .13 micron...
And lastly the Thoroughbred is nothing more than a die shrunken Palomino > Thus it's not a "difficult" switch to make...
Thoroughbred will probably come out of the Dresden, Germany plant. As I stated, AMD's own cpu roadmap projected release in the ½ of 2002.
Having worked for a multinational corporation, the avg. joe employee is the last to know any news. Otherwise the stock I could have purchased!
Thoroughbred 8 Weeks Away?
Ahhh it's refreshing to see that The Inq is now apologizing for the error. Like I said originally the Thoroughbred is still a long ways away. http://www.theinquirer.net/09030201.htm
So all those fools that wasted so much time trying to prove me wrong can........*

Really wizard, don't you think you conduct is unbecoming of a 20 year old man, & a moderator on another forum?!
Exactly. AMD's own roadmap projected release of Thoroughbred
in the ½ of 2002. We had hoped sooner rather than later.
This seems to be confirmation of the release date.
1st half of 2002 (jan, feb, march, april, may, june)....
Thamk you Arris :grinthumb
So much for the 0.13micron process. Intel has demo-ed the 0.09 micron process recently:
Seems like AMD has some catchup to do in terms of shrinking stuff down
Cnet's article about Intel and the 90nanometer process...
I know they have some experimental 0.90 memory but it sounds like its going to be the middle of 2003 before we see any intel processors at this scale.
AMD demonstrated Thoroughbred & Hammer @ CEBIT ( tradeshow in Germany)
Thoroughbred at CeBIT
Looks like it will be a bit longer for the Thoroughbred then...
I am waiting very anxiously for the new processor. Currently, I am projecting having one in my new machine. If they take a while to ramp up production, I may have to go with the XP 1800 or 1900.
Crossing my fingers.
It says AMD was showcasing a 2800+ CPU, does anyone know at what speed that CPU is running ? I'm guessing 2.2 GHZ.
AMD Hammer comming soon ?
Saw this over at the Inquirer, rumors abound about hammer comming sooner than expected (YES).
Here it is for reading.
