AMD schedules December for 65nm Athlon debut?

What has AMD got coming up during the last three months of the year? A host of 65nm and 90nm Athlons, apparently, according to roadmap slides posted on the internet last week which would seem to confirm earlier reports.

November is a key month in the quarter. Then, AMD will introduce the Athlon 64 X2 5400+, 5600+ and 6000+, all all 90nm dual-core parts based on the company's 'Windsor' chip design, according to allegedly leaked information posted by German-language site Planet3DNow.

The three Socket AM2 CPUs will be clocked at 2.8GHz, 2.8GHz and 3GHz respectively, with 1MB, 2MB and 2MB of L2 cache, and TDPs of 89W, 89W and 125W.

A month later, AMD will ship the 65nm 'Brisbane'-based Athlon 64 X2 4000+, 4400+, 4800+ and 5000+, clocked at 2.1GHz, 2.3Ghz, 2.5GHz and 2.6GHz, respectively. They're all TDP-rated at 65W and contain 1MB of L2 cache.
