AMD starts shipping 65nm in October

Hey,

AMD will start to release their products based on a 65nm process this october. As such they are confirming rumours and press releases about their transition to the 65nm production process.
Accoring to an AMD spokesman the production of 65nm products are being produced in full flow this september and ready for a serious release this october.

History might repeat itself when we look at their previous transition to the 90nm production process releasing conservatively clocked products first. Wheather this will be the case remains uncertain however it seems very likely.

Read the article.

Sadly for amd after such 65nm rumours came out they've asked the websites to issue to following correction

Re: AMD says 65 nm due next month

It would be helpful if you could make the small change (below) to your original article.

"AMD is committed to shipping 65nm products to customers by the end of the year [2006]. Our plans are to be substantially converted to 65nm by mid 2007."

Jan Gutter, PR manager, AMD(EMEA)
Xbit quote the inquirer, and thats a letter of correction that has been sent to l'inq

AMD is playing things very conservatively. As I see it, there are two ways of looking at this:

1) AMD wants to keep Intel off guard, and will release a flood of parts earlier than expected, hoping to catch Intel by surprise.

2) AMD wants to be sure that they can hit their targets.

The first strikes me as very appealing to the AMD fanboys, and utterly stupid on the part of AMD. Everybody and their uncle at this point knows that AMD is ramping 65nM production, so there is no hope of catching Intel off guard.

The second, while not the kind of response many of us would hope AMD could come up with against Intel, is actually very smart in the world AMD is trying to play in. The big boys don't care if AMD is able to hit their targets earlier than planned. What they care about is that, when AMD says parts will be available in quantity by the first of the year, they actually ARE. AMD has, in the past, had a habit of being a bit optimistic in their projections. When you do that and something slips, it looks very bad.

My guess, based on what I am seeing, is that AMD will probably start shipping product in October/November time frame, ramping production, and will hit their end of year/first of next year target loaded for bear and ready to build millions of chips.

There's another angle as well, and that is that Dell is going to be buying lots of chips from AMD. AMD may be ramping production and getting Dell geared up for a big release, while the general availability may not be until the end of the year.

There are several reports that the first of the 65nm chips is the 3600+, which is a 2Ghz 512k combined cache part. Better yet, the 3600+ low power version is a real star. It is possible to run it below 1V at stock, and will even overclock into 2.4Ghz territory at 1V, with clocks in the 2.7-2.9Ghz range possible with the most minor of voltage increases, and no extra cooling.

65nm chips will debut as AM2 Opterons. Direct word from AMD.
