AMD AMD Demos 45nm Native Quad-Core Processors for Server, Desktop

HANNOVER, Germany--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AMD (NYSE: AMD - News) demonstrated at the CeBIT electronics exhibition its first 45nm quad-core chips running multiple operating systems and a range of processing intensive applications. The processors were produced in Dresden, Germany, in AMD’s Fab 36 300mm manufacturing facility, using an advanced 45nm process co-developed with IBM.

AMD 45nm transistors are engineered to enable greater performance-per-watt capabilities in AMD processors and platforms. AMD combines new processes and materials with leading edge technologies, such as immersion lithography and AMD’s fourth-generation strained silicon, for a highly-manufacturable, highly-efficient production process.

This important milestone is the first of many as AMD moves toward delivery of 45nm products later this year. The first 45nm chips demonstrated by AMD include the “Shanghai” product for server and “Deneb” for desktop platforms.

This is a surprised for me, good news as well. How long before we see actual shipments in large enough quantities is the real question I would have. Plus if any actual improvements to the core have been done to compete against Intel next generation of cores.

I'm hopeful that these processors have been updated to perform comparable to the Penryn processors.

For the 45nm each core keeps the same 512 KB L2 cache, but the L3 cache is expanded to 6 MB up from the 65nm 3 MB

That`s good news for AMD, hopefully they can have a descent run and start executing like they need too.

That's for first-gen Phenoms.

After that they hope to introduce 1MB L2 per core, which might help too- K8 and K10 should perform differently in this aspect.
