The DailyTech have sourced some spicey details on what AMD have in store for us beyond its soon to be released 65nm "Brisbane" die shrink. For a start they plan to change the naming scheme behind their CPU cores from Cities to Stars. Also touched on is more info regarding HyperTransport 3.0 and some quad-core processors due to hit town in Q3'07.


Check out the article here for the full scoop.


AMD is expected to release its 65nm products soon. Moving beyond the 65nm Brisbane die shrink and Windsor FX, AMD has a couple of other tricks up its sleeves. AMD plans to transition from its Cities core products to new Stars cores. This transition uses AMD's new core naming scheme. While AMD has typically named its processor cores after cities, the new naming scheme uses star names.


The Stars family includes the upcoming Agena FX, Agena, Kuma, Rana and Spica cores. AMD will be introducing plenty of architectural changes with the upcoming Stars family. Stars family processors will switch over to AMD's previously announced HyperTransport 3.0 architecture. While Stars family processors use the HyperTransport 3.0 protocol, it will be backwards compatible with HyperTransport 1.0 systems.
