Mobo manufacturers divulge roadmap secrets
Motherboard manufacturers have spilled a load of secrets to AnandTech, including details on upcoming processors from both AMD and Intel. AMD will apparently bring SSE3 instructions and memory controller optimizations to an "E" revision of its Athlon 64 family early next year. It doesn't look like Athlon 64 clock speeds will ramp up any time soon, though. The Athlon 64 FX-57, which will reportedly run at 2.8GHz, isn't due until the second half of 2005. Check out Anand's full article for more, including the scoop on upcoming chipsets and Intel processors.
