Early 65nm Athlons not doing so badly after all?

— 1:46 PM on September 5, 2006

Word got out last Monday that early AMD processors based on 65nm process technology were facing some voltage hurdles. A report by The Inquirer said the 65nm chips needed a voltage setting of 1.4V to hit their required clock speeds, while the default voltage was reportedly meant to be a much lower 1.1V. The same site now has a follow-up story that says AMD's first-generation 65nm processors will actually have a default voltage of 1.35V. For reference, Intel's Core 2 Duo processors have a core voltage range of 0.850V to 1.3525V.
