AMD said today that it has started shipping 90nm low-power Mobile AMD Athlon 64 processors. Manufacturers are expected to release systems based on the new 90nm Mobile AMD Athlon 64 CPUs in the coming months.
In addition to providing performance and power benefits to AMD64 products today, the transition keeps AMD on track with its plans to deliver 90nm dual-core products mid-next year and also provides operational benefits such as increased production capacities.
“We promised 90 nanometer revenue shipments in the third quarter, and today we’re delivering on that promise,” said Dirk Meyer, executive vice president of the Computation Products Group at AMD. “The added capacity resulting from our efficient transition to 90 nanometer manufacturing enables AMD to better serve the growing ranks of AMD64 customers.”
Desktop AMD Athlon 64 processors made on the 90nm processor will be shipped later this quarter, followed by 90nm AMD Opteron processors shipments later this year.
