Executing on its goal of keeping pace with archrival Intel Corp., Advanced Micro Devices rolled out its first 65-nm x86 CPUs Tuesday.

The new Athlon 64 X2 cuts die size in half and power by a third in existing 90-nm desktop processors. AMD is maintaining its position as a fast follower of giant Intel with plans to ramp its 65-nm process quickly and ship its first 45-nm devices by mid-2008. The new dual-core desktop processors have a maximum power consumption of 65W down from 89W.

They come in existing speed grades of 2.1 to 2.6 GHz and costs ranging from US$169 to $301.
