AMD and Microsoft announce close cooperation

As the processor manufacturer AMD announced in a press release today, they will work more closely with Microsoft than ever before, especially in the 64-bit segment. The eighth generation of AMD processors should therefore be optimally supported in 32 and 64Bit by Microsoft.

At the AMD Annual General Meeting in New York, a first combination of 64Bit 'Opteron' is to be presented during the course of the day. CPU and a 64-bit capable Windows demonstrate both the use of 64-bit and compatibility with 32-bit software. The Opteron (formerly SledgeHammer) is AMD's future server CPU. This will appear on the market in the first quarter of 2003, almost a quarter after the eighth generation Athlon CPUs (formerly ClawHammer)
