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.

Might I add, Intel paid Compaq [DEC at the time] $1 Billion to settle patent infringements up the wazzu regarding the thievery of the Alpha architecture.

There once was a time when CPU wars existed and they were a blast to follow.


Actually, if I can buy a 4 core CPU for 199$, there's one hell of CPU war going on - just a different type of war.

People tend to forget that 15 years ago, we paid 999$ for a 60Mhz, single core Pentium I.

Never the less, I do agree that Intel vs. AMD is somewhat less interesting CPU-design-wise.
