Single-core Athlons to be phased out

AMD has begun to phase out its single-core Athlon processor lineup and will launch five new 45W Sempron processors in September to cover the entry-level single-core processor market, according to sources at motherboard makers.

AMD has already stopped taking orders for its 65nm Athlon 64 processors including 3500+, 3800+ and 4000+, while 90nm Athlon 64 processors are still going, but in very low volumes, according to the sources. AMD plans to launch new 65nm 45W Sempron processors in September this year; the models include LE-1300 (2.3GHz/512KB L2), LE-1250 (2.2GHz/512KB L2), LE-1200 (2.1GHz/512KB L2) and LE-1100 (1.9GHz/256KB L2), LE-1150 (2.0GHz/256KB L2), noted the sources.

In addition, AMD will launch Spica core CPUs with support for socket AM2+ and HyperTransport 3.0 for its single-core lineup in the first half of 2008, while in the second half, the company will launch 45nm Sargas core CPUs supporting socket AM3, added the sources.

Mr. Smith
The GPGPU product lineup will be known as Tesla. Tesla is a top to bottom product lineup consisting of internal PCIe cards and external high-performance computing, or HPC, systems – Tesla C870, S870 and D870.

Yeah they're professional cards not for the average Joe

Great for 24/7 rendering farms though for the likes of game studios and scientific research

Also the support is the best you can possibly get

Do their old Quatro "professional" cards pack a load of flops ?

Well then exactly how do you get the video out if its all internal?

It is for prerendered things like movies I believe. It would do part of the ray tracing processing I guess. It would send its results back over the PCI-Express bus, similar to what happens when you take a screenshot in a game.
