ROADMAPS RELEASED by chip manufacturer AMD show it's made changes to its roadmap for future roadmaps. And some of the changes aren't for the better, it appears. A chip codenamed Paris will be a 32-bit silicon on insulator processor, but it will be built on a .13Âµ (micron) process, rather than a 90 nanometer version, which is now slated for the second half of 2005 – an aeon away in microprocessor terms. And chips called Venus, San Diego, Winchester, Paris, Odessa and Dublin are slated for the second half of 2004. The San Diego is a 90nano SOI Athlon 64FX, Winchester a 90 nano Athlon 64, while Paris is a 130 nano SOI chip. Odessa and Dublin are Athlon 64s and XP-Ms at 90 nano and 130 nano respectively.
Further down the line, AMD will introduce an Oakville 90 nanometer SOI chip in the first half of 2005. In the second half of 2005, we'll see Opteron "Egypt" 90 nano SOI, Italy, and Denmark. The Athlon 64 FX Toledo chip is in the Athlon 64 FX family, while Palermo is a 90 nano Athlon XP chip. Trinidad appears to be a 90 nano SOI XP-M (mobile) chip.
