AMD Revision G processor details

Posted on Thursday, May 25 2006 @ 00:15:39 CEST by

Yesterday AMD launched the Socket AM2 processors and before the launch of the next-generation K8L core we'll see a new revision:
AMD's intermediate 65nm SOI stepping stone is Revision G. The company has taken substantial steps over the last few months to convert Fab 36 to 65nm SOI production, and the company has also announced that Chartered Semiconductor will act as spillover production for 65nm CPUs. Soon, AMD will start putting these resources to use with the second generation DDR2 CPUs.

The transition from AMD's Revision D K8 processors to Revision E K8 was essentially the transition from 130nm die process to 90nm SOI with the addition of SSE3. The progression Revision E to F was then only the addition of DDR2 memory support to the K8 memory controller, as well as the integration of Pacifica virtual technology. Processor revisions, for AMD, come in very small, focused increments -- and the next one for the company is the shift from 90nm SOI to 65nm SOI. Like the progression from Revision D to Revision E, Revision F to Revision G will not require any socket changes.
