FUD Zilla received confirmation that AMD will release 45nm dual-core processors in 2009, these chips will replace Kuma.
The first to come is Deneb 45nm quad-core, and we are still weeks away from that launch. After AMD launches quad-core AM3 DDR3 and AM2 DDR2 ones, the next in line will be the 45nm Heka tri-core. By the middle of 2009 there should be a 45nm dual-core K10.5 and this sounds quite late to us, but this probably has to do with a limited number or engineers who are making such a product possible.
Quad/tri-cores have priority, and tri-core is easy, as you simply disable one of the cores and you are good to go, while dual-core is a new processor that simply takes more time to design.
