AMD Confirms K8L Architecture

DigiTimes has an

interview
with Henri Richard revealing plans for new AMD K8L architecture in
2007.

Well, if we’re going to be more open about 2007 plans, I think Computex
would be a good time to start saying a little more about it since that’s where
we are introducing our AM2 new infrastructure. That’s not to say we’re going to
present K8L at Computex – don’t get me wrong – but I think that that would be a
good time to start to disclose more about the future because one of the strong
attributes of our roadmap, both in 2006 and 2007, is socket compatibility. The
nice thing we’re going to do is to deliver to customers. Whatever improvements
K8L will provide, they will be applicable to some of the sockets we will be
introducing. Therefore, there’s a certain logic, to my mind, in disclosing more
at that time.
