Default AMD's newest Quad-core, Tri-core roadmaps

DailyTech - More Quad-core, Tri-core Phenoms Roadmapped

Quote:
AMD's first updates to its performance segment will take place a quarter of the way into Q2 2008, AMD will unveil two new Phenom processors: the AMD Phenom 9750 and the Phenom 9850. The Phenom 9850 features a 125 Watt thermal envelope and runs at 2.5 GHz, while the Phenom 9750 runs at 2.4 GHz and features a 125 Watt TDP. Around this time another configuration of the Phenom 9750 will be released, but this processor will feature a lower 95W TDP.

In Q3 2008 AMD releases its AMD Phenom 9950 clocked at 2.6 GHz. The Phenom 9950 is one AMD's last high-end 65nm chips and features 140W TDP, the highest of any Phenom processor. Roadmaps indicate that there will be another processor released after the AMD Phenom 9950 though this is likely a lower TDP version of the same frequency.

Next month AMD plans to launch two new chips for its upper mainstream market, the AMD Phenom 9550 and Phenom 9650. AMD guidance says the 9650 runs at 2.3GHz, whereas the 9550 runs at a slightly lower 2.2 GHz.

Halfway through Q2 2008 the company will release three more Toliman triple-core processors for its lower-mainstream segment: the AMD Phenom 8450, Phenom 8650 and Phenom 8750. They feature an operating frequency of 2.1GHz, 2.3GHz and 2.4GHz, respectively. All three chips feature a 95W TDP.

AMD guidance suggests all of these processors are based on the B3 stepping. There are no more scheduled revisions to the 65nm architecture.

AMD finally makes the jump to 45nm halfway into Q4 2008 with its Deneb and Propus-based chips. Both feature quad-core architectures and 2MB of L2 cache. However, the major difference between the two is that Deneb features an L3 cache pool shared amongst the processor cores, Propus does not. Deneb will be targeted at AMD's performance segment, while Propus will be for AMD's mainstream chips.

Both of these 45nm processors are described as 95W TDP processors.

As indicated in December, the company will not announce DDR3 support with the initial Deneb and Propus processors. The initial 45nm Phenom processors will stick with DDR2-1066 until early 2009, where another revision will include DDR3 support.
what do u guys think of AMD's roadmap?

i think AMD is not having a direct competition on purpose because of their R&D compared to Intel. Lower prices is perhaps AMD's counteraction against Intel n their quad-cores. All im waiting for is the prices of these B3 stepping processors.

they should give up now, and move on to 45nm IMHO, they're losing the high-end war but owning the low-end one, time to take the other one back, move to 45nm AMD!

Yea, thats what i was thinking while reading that article... why are they still messing around with 65nm... it's time to move on and make a comeback in 45nm.

wait why the -50 suffixes on the 9750, 9850, those weren't released yet, so why do that, I thought those were only added to the ones that were released with the bug, and last time i checked those were never released

seems like the 8400 is already out there

Buy the Gateway GT5670 Desktop PC and other Desktop computers at circuitcity.com


btw, that 125W, 140W and 95W TDP is not very impressive...

Quote:
If you care about power consumption (and heat/noise), this is really not so great. Intel's old Q6600 is at 95W, it's replacement, the Q9300, is at 95W too. Q9450 and Q9550 are at 95W too. Factor in the dual cores at 65W, and you can see how much of a problem AMD is having with it's performance/TDP ratio

well we all know AMD sucks with TDP Power Consumption

remember the Windsors anybody? Well neither do we!! lol jk, seriously though, they were power hogs too

Ashame... i was thinking that my next build would be AMD and ATI just for fun. Doesn't look like it will be.

*shakes head*

I really want AMD to get back in the game before Intel takes over and raises up those prices again.

Competition = good!!
