Sources with knowledge of the matter concerning AMD’s plans have reported about a new version of AMD Athlon 64 processor to be ramped up pretty soon. The new processor will have an improved memory controller to address certain issues and enhance its flexibility.

A source wished to remain anonymous said in a conversation during the weekend about a new revision of AMD Athlon 64 processor in Socket 754 packaging coming into production “extremely soon”. The informer claimed about certain changes implemented to improve memory controller. Reportedly, some of the changes add more flexibility of memory configurations consisting of 3 DIMMs.

AMD Athlon 64 processor in Socket 754 form-factor designed for performance-mainstream and high-end desktop computers sports 128KB of L1, 1MB of L2 and single-channel PC3200 memory controller. The Athlon 64 FX has dual-channel memory controller and is able to pump in more data at once, eliminating a system bottleneck. AMD’s 64-bit CPUs are made using 0.13 micron process in AMD’s Fab 30 in Dresden, Germany.

Currently core-clocks of AMD Athlon 64 processor are at 1.80GHz and 2.0GHz, but some sources indicated their increase by holiday season with the introduction of AMD Athlon 64 processor with 3400+ model number.

The new Socket 754 processors are expected to be drop-in compatible with the existing infrastructure.
