Athlon 64 X2 gets the 65nm treatment
oday announced its long-awaited 65nm
core Athlon 64 X2 processors
. This begins AMD’s transition to 65nm from 90nm. AMD expects to transition its complete product lineup to 65nm in mid-2007. Nevertheless, four
Athlon 64 X2 processors are launching today—the 5000+, 4800+, 4400+, and 4000+. All 65nm
core processors are equipped with 2x512KB of L2 cache.
AMD Athlon 64 X2
, AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processors equipped with 2x1MB of L2 cache will become a thing of the past as AMD completes its 65nm transition. While AMD has announced its
core 65nm processors, the processors only available in limited quantities. Expect mass availability in Q1’2007.
OEMs are expected to deliver
powered systems as well. These OEMs include Acer, Dell, Founder, Gateway, HP, Lenovo, Packard Bell and TongFang. Dell is expected to adopt
65nm processors in its Optiplex and Dimension desktops while Acer is expected to have
powered Aspire systems too.
65nm processors start at $169 for the 4000+ and goes up to $301 for the 5000+ in quantities of 1000. Do note that
core processors are still K8 based and not
K8L like the upcoming

Firstly socket AM2 is not transitioning to Socket F, Socket F is a server CPU socket designed to support things like fully buffered DIMMS, AM2 also provides support for "AM3" socket CPU's which is its successor (per AMD).
Secondly, AM2 was added only to provide DDR2 support. While it could ahve probably been done without a new socket, odds are more than a few people would have made the mistake of buying a DDR2 processor for their DDR1 board, switching the socket had no real impact as most peopel do not have a 939 board that supports DDR2.
No company sticks with a single socket for too long, and if they do odds are your motherboard stops supporting new processors and other technoligies (much like virtually every Intel board couldn't support Core 2 despite it beign the same socket). Personally I support changes in sockets as it helps to eliminate confusion about what board supports what CPU. As with Intel's current boards you ahve the issue that your socket will be the right type but not support the CPU, it would have been cleaner to just create a new socket type IMO.
