''AMD Athlon FX-53 to be launched in December''

Posted on Tuesday, November 04 2003 @ 18:11:26 CET by


Yesterday we reported of an upcoming Athlon 64 3400+ CPU from AMD which will be problably announced in December, and today rumours are going that AMD will also launch a AMD Athlon FX-53 in December. Most likely this new 940-pin Athlon 64 FX will be clocked at 2.40GHz.

The launch of such exciting CPU would generally boost AMD’s processor-based systems sales during the holiday season, I believe. The only question is whether AMD is in a position to launch this chip in commercial quantities, or will have to wait until next quarter.

AMD’s Athlon 64 and 64 FX microprocessors are produced in Fab 30 based in Dresden, Germany using a 0.13 micron fabrication process with Silicon-on-Insulator technology originally developed by IBM to boost semiconductors’ performance efficiency. Due to a very complex design, AMD’s Athlon 64-series chips are not that good in terms of overclocking. As a consequence, 2.40GHz clock-speed may not be achievable in commercial quantities of the chips.
