AMD will release its next-generation AM2+ processor in Q3 2007, trying to make a fight with Intel Core 2. Due to this reason, Intel just released the company’s plan on Core 2’s price cut to maximize its combat efficiency in the battle, in which Intel Core 2 Quad has a noticeably price cut of 40%.

The upcoming rivals, AMD’s Agena (formerly codenamed Altair) and Kuma (formerly codenamed Antares) have already put in schedule to be releasing in Q3 2007. The new micro-architecture has lots of improvements includes : Hyper-Transport 3.0 (from 2GT/s to 5.6GT/s), 32B Instruction Fetch, more precise Branch Prediction and Out-of-Order Load Execution, 4 Double Precision FLOPS/Cycle, Dual 128Bit SSE calculation, and Load per Cycle. Once AMD has told to the market that the new micro-architecture was hopefully will get back the performance leading which is now owned by Intel.
