    Why is AMD going back to 130nm?

    I wonder how these will fare up to the new Intel's? Yeah, I was wondering the same thing about the 130nm.

    There isn't any concrete information about the CPU specifications in the press release, so i looked out at the model chart page, and it says:
    [​IMG]
    for all 100, 200 and 800 series Opterons. Maybe it's my mistake because the model chart is just updated with the new three CPUs but the process chart stays the same from the first series CPUs. I'll remove the "will be made by .13 micron SOI process" statement for now.
