AMD CPU Roadmap Update

2004 is coming to a close, and it has been a pretty exciting year for AMD. While it launched in 2003, 2004 was the year that the Athlon 64 really came into its own. Prices dropped to more affordable levels, and performance was improved to the point where even the best that Intel has to offer in the way of the Pentium 4 Extreme Edition is not able to score a victory over the top AMD processors. In fact, AMD has several processors that are currently beating Intel’s top chips in the majority of applications. With such a successful year now completed, do we have more of the same to look forward to in 2005? That’s difficult to say: hindsight is always 20-20, but predicting the future is far more difficult.
