AMD to stay at low-point until AM2+ and K8L launch in Q3

Posted on Thursday, January 25 2007 @ 18:32:08 CET by

Motherboard makers claim AMD may remain at low-point until the launch of their new AM2+ and K8L based processors in the third quarter of this year.
Motherboard makers in Taiwan pointed out that AMD used to be highly competitive in the markets for clone systems, servers and high-end gaming. But in 2006, AMD met with a strong challenge from Intel's Core 2 Duo on the desktop. Intel's dual-core Xeon 5100 was a strong competitor for AMD's Opteron, while Intel's quad-core Xeon 5300 also grabbed much of the server market, the motherboard makers said.

The motherboard makers noted that according to AMD's planning, no major 64-bit dual-core processors will be unveiled in the first half of 2007. Processors based on AMD's new K8L architecture, which are currently known by the codenames Agena FX (quad-core), Agena (high-end dual-core), and Kuma (mid-range dual-core), will not hit the market until the third quarter 2007, the makers pointed out.
