DigiTimes has posted an updated AMD processor roadmap. AMD is extending the 65nm Brisbanes, which has new processors at 100MHz seperation, instead of the original 200 MHz. All will have 2*512Kb L2 caches.
"The adjusted clock speeds will be for parts including the Athlon 64 X2 4000+ (2.1GHz), Athlon 64 X2 4400+ (2.3GHz) and Athlon 64 X2 4800+
(2.5GHz), respectively, with the clock speeds splitting the difference between the 90nm existing models - Athlon 64 X2 3800+ and 4000+
(2.0GHz), Athlon 64 X2 4200+ and 4400+ (2.2GHz) and Athlon 64 X2 4600+ and 4800+ (2.4GHz).
The new 65nm Athlon 64 X2 processors will all appear with 2Ã—512KB L2 cache memory, compared with 2Ã—1MB for the similarly named 90nm
versions, indicated the makers. "
