AMD has started producing 90 nanometre versions of its 800, 200 and 100 series codenamed Athens, Troy and Venus. The Athlon MP is practically unobtainable now, and will exist for as long "as the market requires".
In the first half of next year, AMD will shift its FX and A64 chips to the San Diego, Venice and Palermo 90 nanometre SOI chips, displacing existing .13µ (micron) processors.
And during the first half of next year, it will introduce Lancaster, Newark and Georgetown notebook chips - these again will be based on 90 nanometre SOI cores, the first being a low voltage version.
In the second half of next year, we're promised a heap of dual core offerings.
In the Opteron market we'll see Egypt, Italy and Denmark - members of the 800, 200 and 100 series, built using 90 nanometre SOI technology.
On the desktop front, AMD will release the Toledo dual core chip.
On the notebook front the Roma 90 nano low voltage SOI microprocessor. It will also introduce Albany, a 90 nanometre SOI microprocessor. These chips don't appear to be dual core. µ
