AMD reiterates plan for dual-core chips

Advanced Micro Devices' chief executive says the chipmaker is planning a 2005 launch of a server Opteron with two processing cores.

At the annual stockholder meeting for Advanced Micro Devices, CEO Hector Ruiz said the company plans to come out in the second half of 2005 with a version of the Opteron chip for servers that has two processing cores for greater performance. The company could also bring such a chip to the desktop but said it may not because of a lack of demand.

Also at the meeting, Ruiz said AMD will more aggressively develop products for developing nations. "There are 600 million people on the Internet and 6 billion people in the world who want to use it," he said. "There is a vast, unexplored human potential in the world."
