AMD's newest denotes four processor SKUs for 65nm, denoted in orange
AMD's roadmap promises you'll see 65nm processors this year, in limited quantities

AMD just released a few roadmaps to its OEM partners this week. The earliest partner roadmap from May claimed we would see 65nm Brisbane Athlon 64 processors in Q1'07.  The most recent update says we will actually see some limited quantity shipments of 65nm Athlon 64 chips in December 2006.  This forecast is actually slightly ahead of the announcements made just a few weeks ago in previous roadmaps and press briefings of Fab 36.

There is no word yet on the cache size, clock speeds or TDP for the new 65nm SOI AM2 processors; though we do know AMD will also launch a 5400+ rated 90nm Orleans processor about the same time.  The last time AMD changed process sizes, going from 130nm to 90nm, the change was simultaneously executed on all processor frequencies.  AMD deliberately has a relatively low clock processor making the first transition from 90nm to 65nm.  AMD has no single core 65nm AM2 Athlon processors on its roadmap at this time.

With the exception of the updated release date of 90nm AM2 components, the Windsor (dual core) and Orleans (single core) roadmap remains unchanged.

AMD's roadmap also announced the 65nm Sparta core which will be used for 65nm DDR2 Sempron processors.  The upcoming 90nm AM2 Sempron processors are based on the Manila core, and should be announced on May 23, 2006.  Expect to see more roadmaps over the next few days as AMD has a lot of announcements on the way between now and Computex Taipei on June 6th, 2006.
