AMD announced the dual-core Opteron processors will be the first to make the switch from 90nm to 65nm.
Advanced Micro Devices, the world’s second largest maker of microprocessors, has a long history of being tight-lipped over the upcoming plans or ongoing actions. However, recently two executives at the company released details concerning the transition of manufacturing to 65nm process technology, claiming that the first 65nm chips will be shipped in October, 2006 and those will be AMD Opteron processors.

Dr. Gaith Kadir, the General Manager for AMD in the Middle East, Africa and Pakistan, said in an interview with T-break web-site that “[AMD] Opteron [production is] now moved to it [65nm process technology]” and the Athlon 64 lineup will follow “in the next few months”.
