HKEPC has received news from a motherboard manufacturer that AMD will start
supplying 65nm CPUs in December 2006, first for the OEM market. The consumer
market will get theirs in Quarter 1 of 2007, first in Dual Core variants only,
including Athlon 64×2 4200+ (2.2Ghz/512KB L2 x2), Athlon 64×2 4400+ (2.2GHz/1MB
L2 x2), Athlon 64×2 4600+ (2.4GHz/512KB L2 x2) and Athlon 64×2 4800+ (2.4GHz/1MB
L2 x2). The higher-end models however, such as Athlon 64×2 5000+ (2.6GHz/512KB
L2 x2), Athlon 64×2 5200+ (2.6GHz/1MB L2 x2), Athlon 64×2 5400+ (2.8GHz/512KB L2
x2), FX-62(2.8GHz/1MB L2 x2) and FX-64(3.0GHz/1MB L2 x2) will still remain on
90nm process during this transition period.

The new 65nm AMD Athlon 64×2 cores will be code-named Brisbane, and will
manufactured using Strees Memorization and 3rd Strained Silicon technology,
enhancing electronic capability by up to 42%, enabling lower power consumption.
Brisbane is not to replace the Winsor cores and they will both have their place
in the market, while AMD imprvoes on their 65nm manufacturing process. To combat supply shortage problems, AMD will step up the production in
Dresden Fab36 12 and Fab 30 8 in Germany, at the same time working together with
Chartered Semiconductor in Singapore.

will be making the Dual Cores mainstream in the first half of 2007, and
replacing the single cores on the next half, there will be no plans to shift
single core processors over to the 65nm process. The low-priced Semprons will go
into the 65nm process at the second half of 2007, named Sparta.

Dresden Fab36 12 and Fab 30 8 in Germany, at the same time working together with
