AMD Reveals Phenom Model Numbers

AMD’s latest roadmap reveals the company’s model numbers for two Phenom X4 and three X2 models planned to be released in Q4’2007 and Q1’2008. The Agena-based Phenom X4 processors carry the GP-7xxx model number. There will be two Phenom X4 GP-7xxx processors at launch – the GP-7100 and the GP-7000. AMD plans to clock the Phenom X4 GP-7100 from 2.2-to-2.4 GHz. The Phenom X4 GP-7100 has a 3600MHz HyperTransport 3.0, or HT3, bus speed. The lesser Phenom X4 GP-7000 has a targeted clock speed between 2.0-to-2.2GHz and a lesser HT3 bus speed in excess of 3200MHz. The two quad-core processors will have 89-watt TDP. AMD plans to launch one Phenom X2 GP-6xxx model by the end of the year. The Phenom X2 GP-6550 joins the Phenom line up next quarter clocked somewhere between 2.0-to-2.4GHz. The first Phenom X2 to launch has a 3600MHz HT3 bus speed. This model has a TDP of 65 watts. Two more Phenom X2 GP-6xxx models will join the lineup in Q1’2008. The Phenom X2 GP-6650 will launch first between 2.2-to-2.6GHz with a 3600MHz HT3 bus speed. This model has a 65-watt TDP, similar to the GP-6550. The next Phenom X2 GP-6xxx model to launch is the GP-6800. This model has a higher 89-watt TDP, but still a dual-core processor. AMD aims for a 2.4-to-2.8GHz clock speed with a 4000MHz HT3 bus speed.Source: DailyTech

damn thats nice, low tdp!! i wonder if the massive HT3 bus will make much difference to performance, Im also begging to know how these overclock!!

If i get one, and it just dont oc im gonna be so upset :(

I think they should overclock good if you have good cooling atleast i hope they do.If they overclock like the C2D than i think AMD will have a good thing going for them.

Aww.... now I have to wait for an AM3 board to start my new rig, or I won't get full-speed :(

I still wouldn't mind getting one of the new CPUs when they come out even if i can't use it at its full speed that way when i want to upgrade i can get a new board and get the full speed out of it.

very nice, but I thought the Phenom FX procs were coming out first. I know these are supposed to be the fastest stock with the highest caches.

The interesting read here is the new HT 3.0 and the massive speed increases. IF it was a quad pump like Intels, thats 900Mhz x4 for the 3600 and 800Mhz x4 for the 3200Mhz quad cores. For the duals its just ZOMG. Thats going off Intels quad pump FSB. Thats a massive room for overclocking though and with the new fab die sizes as well as the low TDP, these should be ocing beasts.

:confused:

HTT never has been and never will be the fsb.

Nor does it matter, because it won't show most consumers a performance increase :laugh:

The did put the memory controller on a seperate clock plane. Its also running 1:1 with memory speed instead of CPU speed.

well Im not sayin it is FSB, but its like FSB for AMd, come on, everyone knows this.

What Im saying is, its just an amazing Mhz and I was half heartedly (perhaps mistakenly) to Intel and their quad pumped FSB. My bad if it confused you. :shadedshu
