AMD er snart klar til at vise Quad core processorer

Ifølge Daily Tech vil AMD allrede fremvise quad core processorer en gang i juni måned.

AMD reported this week that it is on track to rolling out quad-core processors by year end. What has our interests however is that AMD is now saying that its new quad-core processors will be compatible with existing AMD platforms -- as in sockets. The current AMD socket 939/940 plays host to the latest dual-core Athlons and the latest FX-60. Board manufacturers are also delighted to hear the news as this means designing boards and producing them will require less factory upgrades and faster time to market expectations.

InformationWeek is also reporting that AMD will roll out its dual-core processors that support virtualization later this year. While quad-core AMD processors are expected to roll out in 2007, AMD is already preparing for the ramp up for production. Earlier this week we reported that AMD is currently gathering resources to retool Fab 36 to prepare for production on next-generation 65nm fabrication.

Update: AMD has updated its statement and now says that quad-core processors will only be compatible with Socket-F platforms. While Socket-F does support single-core and dual-core processors, it will be the only "current" socket to support quad-core. Unfortunately, Socket-F platforms are not currently shipping to consumers. AMD clarifies that it meant no user who uses a Socket-F platform with a single-core or dual-core processor will have to change boards in order to use upcoming quad-core processors.
