AMD 65nm dual-core Turion laptop CPUs due Q2 2007?

Smaller Mobile Semprons too

AMD will take its main mobile microprocessor families into the 65nm era during Q2 2007, it has been claimed. The so-called 'Revision G' update will see the addition of 800MHz DDR 2 memory support to the CPUs' on-board memory controller.

According to a DigiTimes report citing Taiwanese laptop-maker sources, the first 65nm mobiles will be 35W Turion 64 X2 dual-core ships - codenamed 'Tyler' - and 25W single-core 'Sherman' Mobile Semprons.

The report didn't list the speed grades at which the chips will ship, but it did say they will all support 100MHz clock-speed increments. They will also use AMD's 638-pin Socket S1 interconnect.

The sources claimed that by the end of Q1 2008, all of AMD's mobile processors will be fabbed at 65nm. ®
