AMD introduces new interactive roadmap

— 3:36 PM on December 7, 2005

Details of AMD's future plans have been scarce in recent months, but at long last, AMD has introduced a new interactive product roadmap that covers both near-term and long-term plans, separates market segment data, and gives details on future technology rollouts. Current and future CPU features are (mostly) linked, with definitions provided through small pop-up windows when clicked.

The near-term product listings are useful but don't contain any real surprises. The longer-term (three year) outlook is quite handy for a look at where AMD is headed. We discussed quite a bit of this information here, but the new site gives some new details. Currently, DDR2 is slated for rollout in 2006, with FB-DIMMs to follow in 2007 and DDR3 projected for 2008. AMD also plans to introduce CPUs with more than two cores on a die in 2007, with a shared L3 cache and additional AMD64 instruction extensions to follow in that same year. Greater than 8-way computing follows in 2008—AMD will be extending its architecture to support additional CPUs without requiring any additional core logic.

Like what we're doing? Pay what you want to support TR and get nifty extra features.
