AMD held its analyst day on Friday and presented a 163 slides long Powerpoint presentation. AMD's current roadmap shows plans well into 2007 with 32-way server chips, IO virtualization, TCP offload and more.
Next year the company will launch Pacifica and Presidio, and also Aero Glass graphics. And a new core with DDR3 and PCI Express generation 2 support will follow in 2007.
AMD also said that the core which supports DDR3 will also feature support for WiMAX and will use less than 32 watts.
Intel recently said it plans Centrino notebooks with dual-core Yonah processors will last for about eight hours within two to three years and AMD today suggests its chips will be able to offer six hours of battery life in 2007. More details at The Inquirer
