Advanced Micro Devices today said its transition to 90nm fabrication process goes as expected and the first commercial shipments of microprocessors produced using the manufacturing technology are expected to arrive in the third quarter.
“We are on-track with our 90nm transition with strong yields, great power consumption and heat dissipation characteristics and expects to deliver products for revenue in Q3 2004,” an AMD spokesman told X-bit labs on Tuesday.
According to the recently unveiled roadmap, the Sunnyvale, California-based chipmaker plans to release a number of AMD Opteron processors code-named
In the first half of next year AMD will release the successor of its AMD Athlon 64 FX chip with core code-named
According to unofficial sources, AMD’s Athlon 64 FX-57 processor at 2.80GHz made using 90nm Silicon-on-Insulator process technology will be released in Q2 2005. A slightly slower AMD Athlon 64 FX-55 chip at 2.60GHz will be available in Q4 2004.
In the second half of next year AMD will initiate production of dual-core processors for various market segments using 90nm SOI process.
