AMD will introduce processors that will contain at least four cores and scale to up to 32 sockets by 2007. The processors will be coupled with chip sets that contain L3 cache; an improved memory technology, presumable Fully Buffered DIMM (FBDIMM); and HyperTransport 3.0 that will include support for fault tolerant I/O. Next year AMD plans to move to DDR 2 memory in its mobile and desktop platforms. The dual-core Turion should be sampling largely in the first quarter 2006 and in production by the second quarter 2006. By 2007 the company expects to offer quad core, improved cache performance, a new wireless technology, most likely Wi-Max. AMD will offer a reference mobile platform to OEMs and systems builders to help speed time to market. That platform will include chipsets with integrated graphics from ATI and NVIDIA as well as I/O.
