In addition to announcements of extensions of its existing platforms, AMD issued its SOI roadmap news (by codename).

Plans for 2010 include:
• “Danube” – mainstream notebook platform featuring the first AMD mobile quad-core processors;
• “Nile” -  ultrathin notebook platform.
• “San Marino” and “Maranello” – 8- and 12-core processors for the volume server market with unprecedented performance-per-watt.
• “Leo” -  next-generation enthusiast-class desktop PC platform with the industry’s first six-core desktop CPU.

Plans for 2011 include:
• “Bulldozer” – a new x86 CPU core for linking with GPUs in single-chip Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) configurations.
• “Llano” – for mainstream notebooks and desktops, this APU will be the first in a family of next-generation designs that combine the power of the CPU and GPU onto a single piece of silicon.
• “Zambezi” – an enthusiast desktop processor with up to eight cores, featuring the first “Bulldozer” core.
