AMD will extend the roadmap for its 65nm-made Athlon 64 X2 CPU portfolio (codenamed Brisbane), with the series lineup adjusted to feature processor clock speeds differentiated by 100MHz, instead of the 200MHz.

The new 65nm Athlon 64 X2 processors will all appear with 2×512KB L2 cache memory, compared with 2×1MB for the similarly named 90nm versions, motherboard manufacturers have stated

According to the source, AMD will also introduce the Athlon 64 X2 6000+ series (3GHz/2×1MB L2), manufactured using a 90nm process technology, in November. The Athlon 64 X2 6000+ will be the renamed version of AMD's Athlon 64 FX family (FX-64).
