AMD will be moving swiftly over to AM2 and introducing energy efficient processors

AMD has updated its roadmap, now including processor releases into the second half of 2007. Looking at the scheduled releases, AMD is proceeding well with its plans and production is ramping nicely at its facilities. Recently, Fab 36 went through a transition and upgrade period and was out of commission for some time. Now, reports indicate that Fab 36 is already generating significant revenue for AMD.

AMD Desktop Processor Core Roadmap 2006
Processor Socket Core Name Launch
Date
Athlon FX AM2 Dual Windsor 1H'06
Athlon 64 X2 AM2 Dual Windsor 1H'06
Athlon 64 X2 AM2 Dual Brisbane 1H'07
Athlon 64 AM2 Single Orleans 1H'06
Sempron AM2 Single Manila 1H'06
Sempron AM2 Single Sparta 2H'07

So far, there is no mention of AMD's upcoming quad-core processors. Windsor, Orleans and Manila will be AMD's first AM2 processors, phasing out the older socket 754 and 939 variants. Coming into 2007, Brisbane will introduce 65nm fabrication for AMD and will remain on the AM2 interface. In the second half of 2007, entry level processors will also be manufactured on 65nm. These 65nm processors are supposedly the K8L architecture mentioned by Henri Richard several weeks ago.

AMD Athlon 64 Processor Roadmap 2006
Processor Socket Core GHz L2 Cache TDP Launch
Athlon 64 4000+ AM2 Single 2.4 1MB 65W 6/6/06
Athlon 64 3800+ AM2 Single 2.4 512KB 65W 6/6/06
Athlon 64 3700+ AM2 Single 2.2 1MB 65W 6/6/06
Athlon 64 3500+ AM2 Single 2.2 512KB 65W 6/6/06
Athlon 64 3200+ AM2 Single 2.0 512KB 65W 6/6/06
Athlon 64 3000+ AM2 Single 1.8 512KB 65W 6/6/06

Clearly 2006 is a transition for AMD along with motherboard manufacturers. Socket 939 is on the way out the door quickly, though Socket 754 will still hang around it seems.

AMD Athlon 64 X2 Processor Roadmap 2006
Processor Socket Core GHz L2 Cache TDP Launch Price
Athlon 64 X2 5200+ AM2 Dual 2.6 1MBx2 89W Q3'06 N/A
Athlon 64 X2 5000+ AM2 Dual 2.6 512KBx2 89W Q2'06 N/A
Athlon 64 X2 4800+ AM2 Dual 2.4 1MBx2 89W 6/6/06 $643
Athlon 64 X2 4600+ AM2 Dual 2.4 512KBx2 89W 6/6/06 $556
Athlon 64 X2 4400+ AM2 Dual 2.2 1MBx2 89W 6/6/06 $467
Athlon 64 X2 4200+ AM2 Dual 2.2 512KBx2 89W 6/6/06 $362

AMD Sempron Processor Roadmap 2006
Processor Socket Core GHz L2 Cache TDP Launch Price
Sempron 3800+ AM2 Single 2.2 256KB 35W Q4'06 N/A
Sempron 3600+ AM2 Single 2.0 256KB 35W Q2'06 N/A
Sempron 3500+ AM2 Single 2.0 128KB 35W 6/6/06 N/A
Sempron 3400+ AM2 Single 1.8 256KB 35W 6/6/06 $120
Sempron 3300+ AM2 Single 1.8 128KB 35W

6/6/06

$110
Sempron 3100+ AM2 Single 1.6 128KB 35W 6/6/06 $95

Sempron processors introduce AMD's push into low power consumption. We previously also reported on AMD's pricing for AM2-based processors. Noted prices are system builder pricing.

Processor S754 & S939

Athlon 64 FX 104W - 110W 125W N/A
Athlon 64 X2 89W - 110W 89W 65W & 35W
Athlon 64 67W - 89W 62W 35W
Sempron 62W 62W 35W

AMD will be introducing what it calls Energy Efficient AM2 processors, which is actually slated for this quarter. These processors are designed for LIVE! systems and other HTPC applications that require low noise and low heat.
