The new 65nm AMD Athlon 64x2 cores will be code-named Brisbane, and will manufactured using Strees Memorization and 3rd Strained Silicon technology, enhancing electronic capability by up to 42%, enabling lower power consumption. Brisbane is not to replace the Winsor cores and they will both have their place in the market, while AMD improves on their 65nm manufacturing process. As AMD will be making the Dual Cores mainstream in the first half of 2007, and replacing the single cores on the next half, there will be no plans to shift single core processors over to the 65nm process. The low-priced Semprons will go into the 65nm process at the second half of 2007, named Sparta.More details over here.
