ONE OF THE great unanswered questions in the CPU industry is what happened to AMD's 65 nanometre CPUs.Check it out over here.
The answer is quite simple, but the background to understanding that simple answer is a long and convoluted story.
Let's dive in with a little history. The last generation 90 nanometre AMD CPUs are in the K8 family, and they are collectively called Rev F on socket AM2 and sport DDR2 on the A64 side, socket 1207 on the Opteron side. They come in both 512K (x2) and 1M (x2) caches, are readily available, and in general, made up the mainstay of the AMD lineup for the second half of last year...
