low-power Athlon 64/64 X2 and Sempron processors will help AMD to better compete against Intel Conroe processors, which will have maximum power consumption of 65W.

Isn't it great! Intel pushes AMD, AMD pushes Intel. Doesn't matter who you like, if one company makes a great processors, it benifits the other.

I am personally sticking with Intel because of the bright future, 45nm in 2007, and well I am just apposed to change.

Mm... Yay. I think Intel will start to fear what AMD can do with 65nm once AM2 comes out.. I mean they will have definately 3.0+ dual cores on 90nm, the X2 5000+ is 2.6ghz.. And theres a X2 5200+ I beleive for it as well, which should be 2.8.. Then you get the FX series. I think Intel is just too lazy to go any further with 90nm.

Their all ready making 65nm, so i dont see why they would produce more 90nm....that would just be silly

90nm is the past. AMD shouldn't be bothering too much with 90nm. They should be going straight for 60nm or something. They need something to give them an edge over the new Conroes. Smaller transistors = less heat = higher overclocks.

Considering the FX60 can barely be overclocked goes to show that AMD is at the limit of the 90nm core. They will never have a 3.0Ghz 90nm computer. Why do you think the FX57 is 2.8Ghz and the FX60 is 2.6Ghz?

Yay. For a second I thought that I was going to have to get intel. But luckily AMD is coming FTW and I'm pretty confident they will do their job.

What temperatures do you think 65nm will get?

Well, my 90nm 3700 maxes out at 50C on stock cooling. Now correct me if I'm wrong, byt with 65nm transistors I'm guessing about 10C would be shaved off that temperature.
