    Default AMD news.

    Westlake Village (CA) - While Intel is busy bringing its next processor generation, based on the Merom core, up to speed, AMD is adding the final touches to its DDR2-based Socket M2 Athlon 64 platform, TG Daily has learned. AMD is preparing 12 M2 processors for Q2 launch, spanning the Athlon 64, X2, FX and Sempron series of CPUs. Part of the launch will be an Athlon 64 X2 5000+ and an Athlon 64 FX-62 chip.

    Looking at processor roadmap of the next 12 months, we have had a pretty good idea what we can expect from Intel for quite some time now. AMD is a different story, however, as the Texans do not feel the need to reveal much of their future product line-up as long as Intel's CPUs are kept at a safe distance, at least in terms of performance and heat generation.

    There was little we knew about the upcoming Socket M2 platform, AMD's entry into the DDR2 memory arena - until now. Sources told us that not just Intel is preparing an armada of new processors, but also AMD will be padding the launch of the M2 platform with a dozen processors - including Athlon 64 FX, Athlon 64 and Sempron - available at launch sometime in Q2 of this year.

    I'm starting to wonder if this will turn out to be the CPU equivalent of the Cold War. We haven't even seen Dual-Core come into mainstream yet, and already AMD is pushing Quad-Core Devices out the door.
