AMD unleashes 65nm beginning in December

AMD’s long awaited 65nm Brisbane core products are just around the corner. DailyTech previously reported that Brisbane is expected to launch in December. AMD’s latest roadmap shows Brisbane 65nm products will arrive as scheduled. Brisbane will be AMD’s first 65nm core and is expected to launch with four parts. The four 65nm Brisbane core based products include the Athlon 64 X2 5000+, 4800+, 4400+ and 3800+. All four models will have 2x512KB of L2 cache and a 65W TDP rating.

Two additional products will switch over to the Brisbane 65nm core in Q2’2007. This includes the Athlon 64 X2 5200+ and 5400+. The Athlon 64 X2 5600+ will be clocked at 2.8 GHz with a 2x512KB L2 cache configuration. Unlike the lower Brisbane products it will have a 76W TDP rating. AMD’s Brisbane based Athlon 64 X2 5200+ will differ from the current Windsor offering. Instead of the 2.6 GHz clock speed and 2x1MB L2 cache configuration of the Windsor based Athlon 64 X2 5200+, the Brisbane based Athlon 64 X2 5200+ will have a 2x512KB L2 cache configuration and 2.7 GHz clock speed. The Brisbane Athlon 64 X2 5200+ also has a 65W TDP like other Brisbane products.

Also arriving in Q2’2007 is energy efficient Brisbane based products. These Energy Efficient processors will have a 35W TDP and be available in Athlon 64 X2 4200+, 4000+ and new 3800+ models. Joining the energy efficient product lineup in Q3’2007 will be the Athlon 64 X2 4400+. The energy efficient Athlon 64 X2 4400+ carries the same 35W TDP as the other low power Brisbane products.

AMD’s dual-core product lineup isn’t the only lineup switching over to 65nm. Single-core Athlon 64 products based on the 65nm Lima core will arrive in January 2007. Two initial single-core Lima products will be introduced. These products are the Athlon 64 3800+ and Athlon 64 3500+. Joining the 65nm single-core party in Q2’2007 is the Athlon 64 4000+. All single-core Lima based products carry a 45W TDP rating and have 512KB of L2 cache.

Not to be left out of the 65nm transitions is the Sempron product lineup. In Q2’2007 AMD will release four 65nm Sparta based Sempron products. The Sempron Sparta based lineup includes the 3800+, 3600+, 3500+ and 3400+ clocked at 2.2 GHz, 2.0 GHz, and 1.8 GHz respectively. All four Sparta based products carry a 35W TDP. Three of the Sparta based products have 256KB of L2 cache while the Sempron 3500+ only has 128KB of L2 cache.

....maybe I should go to a 35watt X2 just to save on that light bill. Its hurting our bottom line and If I get an 8800GTX then Ill need a 35watt proc just to be able to keep my 500watt power supply going.

BTW, do any of you know the typical power usage of a harddrive? I have 5 now and really need to consolidate into a couple of 500+gb drive lol. Anybody else a harddrive collector like me?

I also have 5 Harddrives in my case, plus an external drive.

As far as I know, modern drives consume about 10 watts driving activity, and less than 1 watt while asleep.

i've got six. the number has built up over time and the oldest 2 x 80 ata133 raid0 will have to go (sooner or later) as they lag behind at boot (sometimes the controller has hard time to detect them) and nvidia seems to forget about updating parallel raid drivers (vista had never seen them as raid array (actually this probably saved the data on these drives ;)), linux ("stright out of the box" also does not see partitions, not only because ntfs).
i could go for two more (silicon controller on my asus x? premium mb) to hit ten (including cd/dvd drives) but this would be an overkill and i'd have to sacrifice fdd (not an issue) and fan controller (pain).
plenty of hdd comes handy when trying different os - no need for boot loader to be aware of (and screw) the other os, as the bios f8 option gives enough flexibility/convenience (vm is other nice option but it has its own limits). for some os (vista) separate hdd does not seem enough to keep away from other os (or be exterminated by them) taking with itself a bite of your data at random partition it could see, which is one more reason (for me) not to go any further with hdd/os number - too much headache.
since i said goodbye to vista, i've had plenty spare capacity for backups of my data (that survived vista/xp animosity).

If you have trouble paying the light bill... spend less on computer equipment.
