After Phenom 9950 comes Deneb

by on27 March 2008


45nm is next

After the B3 version of Phenom, branded Phenom 9x50, AMD will introduce its highly anticipated 45nm K10.5 codenamed Deneb.

Deneb comes in second half of 2008 and we hope it will arrive sooner rather than later. The 65nm K10 can reach up to 2.6GHz and all faster parts will be based on the Deneb 45nm K10.5 core.

After Deneb, AMD plans to launch Propus, the L3 cacheless version of K10.5 core that will be smaller and cheaper to produce than any Nehalem. Let's hope that Deneb can go over 3GHz but some early findings indicate that it should.
