    AMD will soon be ready to ship another series of single-core 65nm Athlon 64 processors, according to HKEPC. The new models help in lowering the cost as well as the power consumption from 62W to 45W (27.4%). The two desktop processors to be launched in Mid-Jan, codenamed Lime, include Athlon 64 3500+ and Athlon 64 3800+. Basically, the 65nm models are the same as the 90nm edition. They are clocked at 2.2GHz and 2.4GHz respectively, and have 512KB of L2 cache. In addition 10 more 65nm models will be released in Q2 2007. The upcoming models include three new dual-core Athlon 64 X2 35W TDP processors codenamed Brisbane and one single core Athlon 64 4000+(2.6GHz 45W TDP). For the entry level AMD also plans to release four 65nm Sempron models with 35W TDP, codenamed Sparta. Please click here to learn more.

    i hope it doesnt even up the odds because if it doesnt it will force AMD to release its future cpus today to catch up meaning the consumer get far better value for money.

    Some of the benches I seen on these (and they may have been binned) were on par with Intels C2D. Of course C2D still held a slight lead in some of the critical Benches, but AMD closed the gap. Weird that it did this simply with a die shrinkage. I cant remember who posted it, but it was like 2 weeks ago.

    "single core Athlon 64 4000+(2.6GHz 45W TDP)" <- this will be a great overclocker, easy 3gigs (and propably more). Not that it's anything in conroe era, but good for AMD.

    "5200+ (2.7GHz/512KB L2 x2) 76W" <- this one would be nice next prosessor, if only it were socket 939..
