Build on 45nm and bearing the ‘Istanbul’ codename, AMD’s six-core part will be introduced in the second half of 2009, will feature HyperTransport 3.0 and will be compatible with Socket (F) 1207 boards.

Trying to catch up with Intel, AMD is planning to release yet another 6-core CPU in the first half of 2010, this time for a new Socket – G34. Dubbed Sao Paolo, the CPU will have DDR3 support and battle Intel’s 32nm hexa-core processor which should be released around the same time.
