AMD goes 65nm

AMD, has started shipping chips based in the 65-nanometer process. It is believed that these chips will be about 30 percent less power hungry as compared to those created using 90 nanometer process.

Credit for improvements is due to the fact that AMD has started using silicon germanium film. The use of germanium helps electrical carriers to move more rapidly, thus consuming lesser power and giving faster output.

AMD has also plans to start the manufacturing chips soon based on the 45-nanometer process soon – in 18 months’ time. The 65-nanometer process based chips may become a big, if not instant success with the enterprises for the major reason of its reduced power consumption.
