AMD AMD recently said that they'd be starting onto the 32nm track, beginning production around the fourth quarter of 2010. Intel, on the other hand, has already demonstrated some of its prototypes and will be rolling these babies out to the public come the fourth quarter of-- ah-- this year. AMD isn't manufacturing these chips, however, and is instead laying the load on the newborn Foundry Company, which was created with the help of AMD out of ATI.

... I can still remember the glory days of the birth of the amd64 architecture and hypertransport from 5-6 years ago! Those two AMD did first. But, fine... on the process side of things AMD has always been playing catchup.

AMD wasn't the sole developer of Hypertransport. Apple and IBM were big feet on that tree.
