• AMD is looking at enlarging the L2 cache of Opteron currently with 1MB of
    cache
  • AMD new microprocessors are expected with additional features rather than
    faster speed. Those include support for DDR-3, more cache, and more
    controllers in the chip.
  • AMD processors will support DDR-2, but maybe in 2006 or later
  • AMD has the dual core capability into the Opteron in the second half of
    next year.
  • In future, AMD is working on include high K GOX, improvements to the metal
    gate, selective EPI and raised S/D, and new dopant an anneal processes.
  • The next chip will not use high K GOX, metal gate improvements are too
    early, selective EPI and raised S/D will definitely be used.
  • Some improvements in strained layers on top of transistors look very
    promising.
  • AMD would produce multicore processors in the future, perhaps for desktop
    machines.
  • Fab 36, a 300mm factory will produce 65nm chips
  • Fab 30, the existing function here in Dresden, makes SOI wafers for the 90
    nm Opterons
