DailyTech takes a look at AMD's roadmap for the rest of this year:
AMD has leaked its newest roadmaps to press, and DailyTech has received a new refresh outlining AMD’s upcoming dual-core plans. The major changes between the two roadmaps seem to be the addition of Socket-F FX processors, new 90nm processors and a shift in some of the 65nm processor bins.

In AMD's previous June roadmap, projections were estimated all the way out to Q3'07, but this refresh only contains outlook for the next two quarters. AMD’s Athlon 64 FX lineup will return to sharing a socket with AMD’s server and workstation Opteron lineup. Instead of using socket AM2 processors for AMD’s 4x4 platform there will be a switch to the land-grid-array Socket-F which may be disappointing to enthusiasts and gamers. AMD is specifically calling these new processors FX 2-P.
