Intel 45nm Roadmap Revealed

Intel plans to release eight new 45nm desktop CPUs and counter attack AMD's triple-core CPUs, to be launched in January, 2008. First to arrive will be the QX9650, an Extreme Edition part featuring four cores clocked at 3Ghz, 12MB of L2 cache (6MB per die) and a 130W TDP. This one will be launched in November and will hit the stores soon after. With 2007 gone, Intel will have seven more CPUs, four dual-cores and three quad-cores ready.

AMD to introduce 45nm process AM3 CPU family in 2H08

AMD schedules to launch its 45nm process socket AM3 family processors in the second half of 2008. The processors will support HyperTransport 3.0 and will have a built-in DDR2/DDR3 memory controller. The processors will be backwards compatible with the previous AM2 and AM2+ socket motherboards, according to sources at motherboard makers.

AMD's AM3 family will include the quad-core Deneb and DenebFX, dual-core Propus and Regor, and single-core Sargas. Shipments of 45nm products are predicted to surpass those of 65nm products within half a year from launch, noted the sources.

Although Socket AM3 processors will be backwards compatible with previous socket AM2 and AM2+ motherboards, socket AM3 motherboards will not be able to support the previous socket AM2 and AM2+ processors. Therefore shipment volumes of socket AM3 motherboards will depend on the speed of transition to DDR3 memory, added the sources.Source: Digitimes
