This must be the 'ramp up' time that was expected this year, but due to heat issues, must of been set back, where CPU makers will start jumping up in several hundred megahertz, not 100 max.

But for all this to mean something to us, AMD has to be right up there as well, attacking.. and making it competitive, thus.. price wars :D :beer:

No, you're thinking of the 90 nm ramp. According to the latest
from Intel, they will have more 90nm parts on the market than
AMD has annual capacity by the end of Q1.

That's why AMD is working on a monster fab of their own, and
also why they're pushing their 90nm transition as hard as they
can. If they stay on schedule, they'll (hopefully) stay within 6
months of Intel in the transition.
