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.

As far as I know, AMD were the first to do the following:

* Have a 64 bit processor
* Have more then one core on a single die (the first intel duel cores were two single cores stuck together). AMD were also the first to fit 4 cores on 1 die (albeit a flawed chip)
* Integrate the memory controller into the CPU

Seems that intel do all of those things now...
