AMD planning very quick transition to 32nm

Posted on Monday, February 14 2011 @ 17:12:00 CET by


AMD plans to make a very rapid transition, an anonymous source told X-bit Labs that virtually all of AMD's processors will be made using 32nm SOI technology by Q2 2012. Quite an ambitious goal considering Intel usually takes a couple of years to migrate all of its chips to a smaller node.
At present the absolute majority of desktop microprocessors shipped by Advanced Micro Devices are AMD Athlon II and AMD Phenom II chips in AM3 form-factor. But already in a little bit more than a year from now all the desktop chips that AMD will sell will be made using 32nm SOI process technology and will rely on code-named Bulldozer, Brazos and Llano designs, the source indicated.

Approximately 20% of AMD's desktop microprocessors in Q2 2012 will be in AM3+ form-factor and will belong to the FX family of chips, which is based on Bulldozer micro-architecture. About 10% of desktop chips will come in FT1 ball-grid-array form-factor and will therefore be based on Brazos design. The remaining 70% will be Llano accelerated processing units with two or four x86 cores as well as a Radeon HD 6000-class graphics engine in FM1 form-factor.
