AMD is planning to launch its first 65nm desktop processor in the first half of 2007, X-bit Labs reports. Another 65nm processor, targeting entry-level computers, will be launched in the second half of next year.
The slides, which presumably reflect a recent roadmap of AMD, published by HKEPC web-site contain some information about code-named Brisbane and Sparta processors. The Brisbane chip will be made using 65nm process technology, will sport two processing engines and will come out in the first half of 2007. Meanwhile, the product code-named Sparta, also made using 65nm process technology, will be launched in the second half of next year.

If the slides are correct, then Brisbane will target the market of mainstream dual-core processors, whereas Sparta will serve entry-level computers.
Both chips feature AMD's Socket AM2 which has DDR2 memory support.
