AMD started to phase out its single-core Athlon processors, DigiTimes reports. To fill the gap in the entry-level market AMD plans to unveil five new 45W Sempron processors in September.
AMD has already stopped taking orders for its 65nm Athlon 64 processors including 3500+, 3800+ and 4000+, while 90nm Athlon 64 processors are still going, but in very low volumes, according to the sources. AMD plans to launch new 65nm 45W Sempron processors in September this year; the models include LE-1300 (2.3GHz/512KB L2), LE-1250 (2.2GHz/512KB L2), LE-1200 (2.1GHz/512KB L2) and LE-1100 (1.9GHz/256KB L2), LE-1150 (2.0GHz/256KB L2), noted the sources.
In the first half of 2008 we can expect the AMD Spica processors, these single-core Socket AM2+ chips will feature HyperTransport 3.0 support and in the second half of 2008 we can expect the 45nm AMD Sarga processors which will support Socket AM3.
