X2s moved to K8
K9 was indeed originally meant to be dual-core K8, but AMD has since revised their plans. The X2s are classified as K8 by various reputable sources, including but not limited to sandpile.org and AMD themselves (which must be worth something).
Oh, also, added San Diego in for regular A64s. Yes, the San Diego is used in both the FX and certain A64s (the 3700+, for example). SVI 01:17, 30 July 2005 (UTC)
Actually, the whole K9 thing is dubious at best. In May 2006 there were rumors about K8L. This was at least a year after dual core was launched in 2005. In one interview, an AMD official even used K8L synomously with K10. Is there any reason to include the K9 rumor which was never used by AMD? The K9 designation simply comes from adding to the previous generations: K5, K6, K7, K8. However there is every indication that AMD understood the negative connotations of K9 and never intended to use it. This is similar to the way many hotels skip room number 13.
Intel had much more trouble with this yet none of these rejected names are in the Intel section:
Pentium, Sexium (rejected) Pentium II, Pentium III, Pentium IV (rejected perhaps because of poison ivy) Pentium 4, Pentium 5 (rejected probably because of fear of the common 55 mph speed limit) Pentium 4D, Pentium 4E, Pentium 4F (rejected probably because of the military designation 4F meaning unfit for service) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Brehmel (talk • contribs) 11:36, 6 June 2011 (UTC)
- K8L = development codename for AMD Turion (K8 low power), K9 = development codename for dual-core K8. K9 was originally something completely new but dropped later on so re-used for the K8 dual-cores. --Denniss (talk) 14:40, 6 June 2011 (UTC)
K7 not in production anymore
There was an article at the inquirer showing a photograph of asian AMD workers holding a sign that the last K7 processor had been packaged (can't find the page now). Plus there is this article (I don't have any articles from other sites ATM). So I guess the K7 headline can be changed to K7 series (1999–2005). Also I haven't seen any Socket-A CPUs on AMD's price-lists for some time now (as quoted in the press), be it Sempron or Athlon MP, see for example this article on Heise Online (german, this is where c't mag comes from) from August 1 2005. Ok, there still is the Geode NX which is K7-based, but this article doesn't feature any Geode CPUs.
wasn't there a 386sx? Kingturtle 01:24, 16 January 2006 (UTC)
There most certainly was I used to own one. http://www.cpu-collection.de/?l0=co&l1=AMD&l2=386%20SX AMD Am386SX-20, Am386SX/SXL-25, and Am386SX/SXL-33. Evil genius (talk) 06:26, 2 December 2008 (UTC)
