AMD: 45nm, DDR3 and Socket AM3 in 2008

| RAM News | Posted: May 4, 2007 12:16 am

The DailyTech have acquired a bunch more details in relation to AMDs plans for 2008, the biggest of which will be K10, their next-gen architecture which will debut on a 65nm node and soon after migrate to 45nm.

 

The briefing also touches on some 45nm quad-core offerings to show up and stacks more. Lets hope all this upcoming tech performs like the dickens, AMD obviously needs a huge spark to really clamp the pressure back down on Intel once again.

 


This summer, AMD will announce its first major architecture change since the introduction of the K8 architecture in 2003. This new architecture, dubbed K10, will first make an appearance in the server space, with the introduction of the Barcelona-family processors.

 

K10 features a native quad-core design that incorporates shared-L3 cache, HyperTransport-3 support and backwards functionality with AM2 motherboards. However, the original K10 desktop and server processors will debut on the 65nm architecture -- a process AMD only started mastering in December 2006 with the launch of the Brisbane desktop CPU family.
