 PC World - AMD Looks Ahead to Speedier Chips   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
Advanced Micro Devices is ready to start shipping Athlon processors, code-named Thoroughbred, made using a 0.13-micron process to customers later this month, the Sunnyvale, California-based company announced at the CeBIT trade show in Hanover, Germany on Wednesday.
Switching to the more advanced 0.13-micron manufacturing process allows AMD to produce more chips on a single wafer as the 0.13-micron chips are around 38 percent smaller than Athlon XP chips made using the 0.18-micron process, the company says.
AMD did not disclose the clock speeds of the Thoroughbred chips that would begin shipping to customers this month but the 0.13-micron process opens the door to Athlon chips that run at higher clock speeds and consume less power than chips made using the 0.18-micron process.
