Post AMDs Next Line of CPUs Revealed.

http://www.dailytech.com/Final+AMD+S...rticle7157.htm



Quote:
The top-end AMD Phenom FX processor clocks in the 2.4-2.6 GHz speed range. Slotting below the top-end Phenom FX is a 2.2-2.4 GHz model. These two models occupy AMD’s upcoming Socket 1207+ and current Socket 1207 Quad FX platforms. AMD also has a Phenom FX for single-processor customers as well, clocked at 2.4-2.6 GHz.

AMD further differentiates its Phenom FX processors with different Hyper Transport 3.0 clock speeds. The flagship 2.4-2.6 GHz model features a 3.6 GHz HT 3.0 clock speed while the two 2.2-2.4 GHz models have a lower 3.2 GHz HT 3.0 clock. All three models share the same 4x512KB L2 cache and 2MB L3 cache configuration. AMD has yet to determine the TDP of its Phenom FX processors.

Catering towards high-end user are two Socket AM2+ AMD Phenom X4 processors. AMD remains undecided on its model numbers; however, clock speeds on the Agena-based Phenom X4 processors are set. The two AMD Phenom X4 processors clock in at 2.4 GHz and 2.2 GHz. These models share the same 4x512KB L2 cache and 2MB L3 cache configuration as the Phenom FX processors.

..AMD’s dual-core Kuma processors will carry the Phenom X2 name and drop into Socket AM2+ and AM2 motherboards. There are three AMD Phenom X2 processors in the pipeline with 2.8 GHz, 2.6 GHz and 2.4 GHz clock speeds. HT 3.0 speeds vary on the AMD Phenom X2 processors. At the top with the AMD Phenom X2 2.8 GHz model.
This looks different from what I've seen a few around here claim. It looks like the native quads will only be available on the AM2+ platform and not the AM2. Only the dualies will be available on the AM2 according to DailyTech.

The names make sense. X4s are quads, and X2s are dualies.

I'm getting excited for these! I hope they come out soon and rock Intel's world.

rather small cache, lets see how they perform

will make intel quad more affordable

I remember reading an article where AMD wouldn't benefit as much as Intel does with their huge cache because of architecture differences. So the amount of cache shouldn't be causing as big of an issue as it may seem, and the good thing about less cache is it will produce less heat that way.

It is funny though because this is about the first time that we have ever seen AMD bring out a new line that wasn't faster mhz wise than their last line. Hopefully their will be some huge efficiency improvements (Which there are) to really help make them faster.

Yeah, AMD has never needed as much cache as Intel because of their on-die memory controller.

I hope that their quads come out for a reasonable price and not the ridiculous prices their last line came out at. With Intel in the lead, they probably can't afford to keep prices too high.

A native quad with those crazy hyper-transport speeds looks good to me.

Looks great on paper!

....Now lets see some performance numbers.

I really like their code names. Sounds cool.

I'm biting my lips on waiting to upgrade... Quad core for $266. Woo!

Agena, Kuma and Rana are awesome names.

Spica seems to have been chosen in poor taste...

I´ve been out of the loop on AMD for a bit.

What´s this AM2+ being mentioned? What´s the difference with conventional AM2? Compatibility?

I would like to see these give Intel a run for their money. I've always liked AMD.

I for one am REALLY excited about these, but I'm REALLY hoping they're faster than C2D :\

I believe AM2+ allows for HT 3.0 and some other more advanced features that AM2 boards do not have. AM2+ CPUs will work in AM2 boards, but those extra features will be disabled until an AM2+ board is used.
