AMD has not announced other Revision G processors specifics yet, although 65nm
Sempron processors, dubbed Sparta, will replace 90nm SOI Manila processors
that were just announced yesterday. Do not expect a simultaneous launch
of Sparta and Brisbane, as the Brisbane components that
are expected to ship this December are low volume productions.
Revision G is not limited to just the desktop either. Tyler and Sherman are AMD's
upcoming Revision G 65nm SOI successors to the recently announced Taylor and Keene Socket S1 DDR2 Turions and Semprons.
AMD's roadmaps have revealed that there will not be a 65nm successor to
Trinidad nor Richmond, as the Energy Efficient Sparta and Brisbane processors
will more or less fill the gap between Turion and Athlon/Sempron processors for
DTR notebooks. These Revision G processors will not receive a HyperTransport
AMD has been hesitant to list TDP information for Brisbane, although
AMD's most recent partner roadmap reveals that Tyler and Sherman will have the
same TDP envelopes as Taylor and Keene; 35W and 25W respectively.
Deerhound, the Revision G successor to Santa Rosa and Santa
Ana, is the only server core on the long-term AMD roadmaps. AMD will
reduce all six 90nm Opteron cores into just two with the Santa Rosa and Santa
Ana -- Santa Rosa will be the unified Socket F dual-core Opteron
while Santa Ana will become the Socket AM2 dual-core Opteron
specifically for 1U servers and high end workstations. With Revision G, AMD
goes one step further with four cores on the Deerhound, though the
features on Deerhound are virtually identical to Santa Rosa with
the exception of the die shrink. K8L processors will then replace Deerhound in 2008.
intel core is almost ready, AMD needs a new architecture.
