Advanced Micro Devices may push the release of its high-end microprocessor for desktops produced using 90nm fabrication process into the second quarter of next year, X-bit labs has learnt from sources close to the company. But before the chipmaker unveils its new microprocessor design, there will be a yet another 130nm product targeting enthusiasts.

As reported, AMD plans to introduce its AMD Athlon 64 FX-55 chip in the Q4 2004. The chip will be clocked at 2.60GHz, but is still likely to be made using current 130nm Silicon-on-Insulator process technology. A more powerful processor geared towards hardcore enthusiasts – AMD Athlon 64 FX-57 – made using 90nm SOI fabrication process is expected to emerge in the Q2 2005. Previously high-end desktop parts were referred to as “code-named San Diego”.

If they can get 2.6ghz out of the current design i will be very impressed seeing as most overclockers seem to hit a wall at 2.5ghz.
