Latest AMD roadmap and 4×4
AMD’s Sept 20006 roadmap
AMD’s latest roadmap shows a few additions starting in Q4’06. First off, AMD’s 4×4 platform is arriving in November on socket F no less, not AM2. Those tasty new FX processors, the FX-70 (2.6GHz), FX-72 (2.8GHz), and FX-74 (3.0GHz), are all socket F based only. Still no word on processor support for 4×4 motherboard, but if it’s only the FX series it’s going to be an ultra expensive endeavour.
Moving to the mainstream socket AM2, Q4’06 brings three new X2’s to the table. In the 5600+ (2.8 GHz) and 6000+ (3.0 GHz) we finally?see 2x1MB L2 cache chips for AM2, and it’s about bloody time. The 5400+ is clocked identically to the 5600+ but only has 2x512KB L2 cache.
There are a few 65nm processors due in Q1’07, so jump on over to dailytech for more details.
