AMD's first 65nm processors expected by late 2006

Revenue shipments of AMD's 65nm processors will start in late 2006, but according to a Chinese website these processors won't be available for retail customers.
A news-story published by HKEPC web-site suggests that in the fourth quarter of the year AMD will start commercial shipments of its first 65nm Athlon 64 X2 chip models 4200+ (2.20GHz, 1MB of cache [512KB per core]), 4400+ (2.20GHz, 2MB of cache [1MB per core]), 4600+ (2.40GHz, 1MB of cache [512KB per core]), and 4800+ (2.40GHz, 2MB of cache [1MB per core]), designed for socket AM2 infrastructure to system integrators. The web-site calls the chips as Brisbane, while earlier AMD’s chips with different cache sizes had different code-names. If the report is correct and there is no separate name for chips featuring 1MB of level-two cache (512KB per core), it means that AMD will disable part of the cache on certain chips.
