AMD 65nm Athlon 64 and FX to be launched in H1 2007

Posted on Thursday, February 09 2006 @ 23:20:29 CET by


AMD is planning to release its 65nm Athlon 64 and Athlon FX processors early next year, The Register reports. Additionally, we can also expect the launch of 65-nm Sempron processors in the second half of 2007.

And by June 2006 the company will launch the Socket AM2 Athlon 64 FX-62, along with the dual-core Athlon 64 X2 5000+ and 5200+, according to AMD's roadmaps.

The dual-core Athlon FX-62 will be clocked at 2.8GHz, the X2 5000+ and X2 5200+ but at 2.6GHz. The X2 5000+ has 1MB L2 cache and the X2 5200+ will have 2MB cache. The new X2s will have a TDP of 89W and the FX-62 has a TDP of 125W.
According to the slides, the 65nm Athlon 64 is codenamed 'Brisbane' - though whether for the Australian city or the San Francisco suburb of the same name isn't clear. The 65nm Sempron has an altogether more bellicose codename: 'Sparta'. Both are simply listed as 65nm parts supporting AMD's Socket AM2 interconnect.

Unlike Sparta, Brisbane is a dual-core chip and will form the basis for future Athlon 64s and Athlon 64 FXs. The slides suggest the upcoming 'Windsor' core, which will bring dual-channel DDR 2 and AM2 support to the FX family, will survive through 2007, presumably as dual-core Brisbane's single-core sibling. Today's FX core is not expected to last past Brisbane's introduction.
