AMD is scheduled to deliver chip samples using a
90nm manufacturing process on 8-inch wafers in the second quarter of next year.
The chip samples will be cranked out from AMD’s Fab 30 in Dresden, Germany. The
fab, which uses a 0.13-micron process, will migrate to 90nm in the second half
of 2004. AMD hoped to ramp up 90nm chip production in the second quarter of next
year, but has delayed that schedule by two to three months. San Diego, the 90nm
successor of the current Athlon 64 FX for high performance desktops and
Winchester, the 90nm successor of Athlon 64 for mainstream desktops will arrive
in H2 2004. For servers, 90nm Athens, Troy and Venus will arrive at the same
time. AMD does not have plans to outsource processors to any wafer foundry in
the immediate future. Instead, AMD is building a new 12-inch wafer fab, called
Fab 36, adjacent to Fab 30. The new fab is projected to start cranking out
13,000 wafers per month on a 65nm process in 2006.
