AMD planning dual core Opteron processors in second half of 2004

Posted on Monday, September 29 2003 @ 15:06:48 CEST by


AMD made clear that in the second half of 2004 they will release dual-core AMD Opteron processors for servers. The CPUs ofcourse have x86-64 technology, and will be made on a 90nm SOI technology process. Later at the end of 2005 AMD will make the move to the 65nm process.

Intel’s first Xeon “Tulsa” chip with two processing cores is also very likely to be made using 90nm fabrication technology, as we managed to reveal recently.

In case both leading CPU designers introduce their dual-core chips at 90nm, AMD, whose CPU cores have recently been a bit smaller compared to Intel’s, may have a cost benefit there. But keeping in mind that there is no information about performance of chips coming out in 2005, cost benefit does not necessarily mean a benefit for the actual microprocessor in the market, as customers potentially interested in such solutions are more interested in performance, rather than the cost.
