Comes after K10.5 at 45 nm

AMD's next generation Bulldozer CPU is
currently scheduled for 2009 and it will be the next generation technology that
will come after K10.5. K10.5 is the codename for the 45 nanometre K10 that is set to
arrive in 2H 2008.
It is rather interesting that Bulldozer
will support SSE5 instruction set and we guess that Intel's upcoming Nehalem
can support this set of instruction as well.
K10 supports SSE 4.0a, which is a subset of
the whole SSE 4 specification, and this will certainly give Intel some kind of
instruction advantage over the existing K10.
