Posted on Tuesday, Dec 05 2006 @ 13:11 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
AMD today released its first 65nm Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processors. AMD processors built with 65nm line-widths are designed to deliver exceptional performance when running multiple applications, as well as enable small form factor PCs that complement both home and office environments. By mid-2007, AMD expects to be fully converted to 65nm production at Fab 36. With the rapid conversion to 65nm process technology, AMD is scaling capacity intelligently to meet growing demand worldwide for x86 processors.

Energy-efficient AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processors can deliver improved performance-per-watt and reduced power consumption. AMD will continue within the 65nm technology generation to enhance both AMD64 processors and process technology, to offer even more energy-efficient processors that demonstrate AMD’s commitment to an improved global environment. The next generation of energy-efficient processors complement AMD’s award-winning Cool‘n’Quiet technology, allowing a system to match processor utilization to the performance actually required.

Pricing for the 65nm AMD Athlon 64 dual-core processors 5000+, 4800+, 4400+, and 4000+ are $301, $271, $214, and $169, respectively in 1KU PIB.
