AMD tweaks mobile chip roadmap

'Lancaster' becomes Turion

AMD has tweaked its public roadmap to take into account the recently launched Turion 64 mobile processors.

It's a little odd, it has to be said, to have a public roadmap that includes past product - surely a roadmap should solely point ahead, to future releases? AMD still lists all its H2 2004 releases, even though we're now well into H1 2005.

AMD's roadmap has listed 'Lancaster', a low-voltage, 90nm Mobile Athlon 64 chip, for some time, putting its release some time in the first half of this year. The latest roadmap revision drops the codename and lists the part as Turion 64.

Still to come before the end of Q2 2005 are 'Newark', the standard 90nm Mobile Athlon 64 part, which will succeed the current, 130nm version. Likewise, 'Georgetown' is the H1 2005 90nm successor to the current line up of 130nm Mobile Sempron processors. Georgetown will be superseded by 'Albany', the second-generation 90nm Mobile Sempron, in H2, a six-month period which should also see the release of 'Roma', the second-generation 90nm low-voltage Mobile Sempron.

AMD has not publicly announced any updates to the Turion 64 family or the Mobile Athlon 64 line from H2 onwards. Unofficially, 'Taylor' will be a dual-core chip with support for DDR 2 SDRAM, as will be 'Trinidad'. The two chips are expected to be offered under the Turion 64 and Mobile Athlon 64 brands, respectively. ®
