   The company AMD, of course, not limited to issuing a series of graphic adapters ATI Radeon HD 4600 processor-based RV730, valued from $ 70 to $ 90 - already at the end of September chipmeyker expects to expand the range of graphics cards cheaper solutions ATI Radeon HD 4550, produced in two versions - with 512 MB of memory GDDR3 (worth $ 45-55) and 256 MB of memory GDDR3. Consolidate the position of the company in the market of budget graphics cards should model ATI Radeon HD 4350 with 256 MB of memory standard cheap DDR2, which will sell solutions at a price less than $ 50. But what is most interesting - at the beginning of next year, AMD is scheduled to decline in the prices of the above products, but specific figures have not yet named.
Uverenno acting in the market of graphic adapters company AMD has not forgotten and the core market for a central processor, and here we are waiting for two 45 - Quad-nm chip model. But in this case on options for the connector Socket AM2, instead of the expected earlier decisions for Socket AM3. Two new items succeeding will operate at a frequency of 2, 6 to 3 GHz, 0 GHz and a maximum power consumption microchip is 125 watts. These devices can only be seen as a transitional solutions - already in May or June next year, 45 - first-nm will be withdrawn from the world market of central processors for PCs.
But the second quarter of next year mark the issuance of the next generation of processors trehyadernyh AMD, manufactured by 45 - nm tehprotsessu - microchips Rana, deprived of the cache third level.
As for exactly 45 - nm chips for socket AM3, their appearance in sales is expected in January 2009, among which are:four quad model, and two model based on nuclei Deneb and Propus. With regard to the latter options, then under this code hiding cost-effective solutions for minikompyuterov.
