AMD HAS ROLLED OUT its Manufacturing Update Tour, something that the company likes to do in springtime. This time around, AMD gathered selective bunch of hacks and showed off a lot of interesting things, including products that are hitting the market or getting anounced next week.

Most interesting was the fact that company was showing of a 45nm wafer to the crowd. Unlike last year's one, that was actually manufactured in IBM's Fab in East Fishkill and featured nothing more than SRAM cells and various sort of trannies, this time real, 45nm, "Made in Germany" parts were shown to carefully selected audience.

Sadly, we won't bring you a picture of the wafer in this news article, since we did not attend this NDAed briefing.

AMD is sticking to the story that it will introduce 45nm parts during the middle of 2008. µ
