Yesterday someone claimed AMD won't reach 45nm until 2009 but according to AMD that's not true.

The firm claims their first 45nm processors will be ready in the first half of 2008:
Contrary to FabTech's article - AMD claims that they will be able to ramp 45nm in 1H08. AMD also claimed that server and desktop will be the first to transition to the 45nm process.
During a conference call the firm also confirmed Fab 30 will be closed by the end of the year:
AMD has confirmed that they will shutdown their 90nm Fab30 plant in Dresden, Germany, by the end of the year. Fab30 will be closed to allow for retooling and will open at a later date as Fab38.
