AMD published a press release in which it announces new 64-bit 65-nanometre CPU chips codenamed Brisbane. For the general public, these will be called AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 5000+, 4800+, 4400+, and 4000+.

All four processors are dual-core and will have 2x512MB cache. The fastest of the four announced processors, X2 5000+ will work at 2.6GHz.

Unfortunately for AMD, these processors won't completely bridge the gap between AMD's finest and Intel's Core 2 Duo chips, which will stay in the lead. This is just a step in their transition to 65mm, which was necessary for AMD if they want to keep putting out energy-efficient chips.

The prices for the four chips will be as follows: 4000+ will cost $169, 4400+ $214, 4800+ $271, and 5000+ $301.
