    Today on AMD Analyst Day, they presented their new Roadmap for 2006, 2007 and 2008.
    This year AMD will shrink their processors to 65nm and as we reported introduce the "dual" Socket 4x4. In 2007 the caches should become larger and quadcore will be released. DDR3 and the next generation PCIe will be introduced in 2008. For original slides read the whole story.

    This is quite a far look into the future. LOL :laugh:

    Next Gen PCI-E x32? Probably. Can't wait though!

    damn, 45nm in 2008? impressive.

    FX is inferred under "performance" on the desktop slide

    The 65nm is coming sooner than I expected. But that's just what I want :D Ain't considering upgrading until then.

    what they should do to make it more affordable to everyone is have for example

    AMD 3800 2.4ghz Dual socket version £100

    AMD 3800 2.4ghz Single socket version £150

    but make the dual socket version only work if there are 2 and not one

    therefore it wil be:

    2 x £100 = £200 for dual socket

    1 x £150 = £150 for single socket

    this way it wont be 2 x 150 which would mean £300, and the dual socket version wont work by it self and you would be cheating as you would only have paid £100 and not £150

    this is just an example, price and name of cpu and theory are made up but i think they should use my theory as it makes the 4x4 more cheaper

    how would that be beneficial to AMD...? if anything, they'd probably go the other way... have a single socket version cheaper than a dual socket version. ie opteron 1xx versus 2xx versus 8xx

    in my theory the single socket one is cheaper £150 for single and £200 for double, its not £100 coz u got to get 2, i like my theory, it doesnt make 4x4 double the price of single socket. just 33.33% extra

    1xx = 1-way server (1 socket at most)
    2xx = 2-way server (2 sockets at most)
    8xx = 8-way server (8 sockets at most; also used in 4-way servers)
