Thats the 45nm process, AMD chips will be just as vulnerable. However this is completely normal, as the process shrinks, they need less voltage.
So are they going to maintain the same architecture till Bulldozer?
All this looking at the future just keeps getting me more pumped for Nehalem.
Though I can't help but wonder if AMD will make it that long. How long has it been since they broke even for a quarter? They are currently pursuing New architecture for their CPU's and GPU's, doing work on a CPU-GPU hybrid, and trying to make a 45nm process shrink, and all are billion dollar affairs, can they sustain that?

FSB architecture really doesn't scale too well.
