AMD demos first dual-core processor

Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has demonstrated the company's first dual-core microprocessors at its Texas office.

AMD's demonstration included a HP Proliant DL585 server running four dual-core Opteron processors, the company said. It did not provide further details of the demonstration.

The dual-core Opteron chips, which were produced using a 90-nanometer process, were expected to be available commerically by the middle of next year, AMD said.

The company planned to make available dual-core chips that were designed to be used in servers running from one to eight processors, it said. It did not disclose pricing information for the chips.

Dual-core processors designed for desktop PCs would be made available during the second half of 2005, AMD said.

AMD rival Intel also plans to make available a full range of dual-core processors in 2005.
