AMD to have four 65nm CPUs this year

By Justin Mann on May 15, 2006, 11:00 AM
Some more details on AMD's move to 65nm are available, including the chips that will be part of their lineup for 2006. Later this year, we can expect to see around 4 different AM2-based CPUs, all using the 65nm process. These will include a 4200+ dual core with 2x512KB cache, a 4400+ dual core with 2x1MB cache, a 4600+ dual core with 2x512kb cache and a 4800+ dual core with 2x1MB cache. Obviously AMD's emphasis on dual core is seen here, and with their somewhat late entry into the 65mn field, it's likely we may see AMD release more very soon afterwards, and even accelerate migration to multi-core CPUs. It is looking currently like fall of this year to be when production begins.

No speed bump and only going to OEMs this year. Sounds like bad news to me.

Other than that, it looks to me like AMD has things well under control.

Those are 90nm.
