Phenom II Final Nomenclature and Launch-Schedule Revealed

AMD would be releasing its 45nm silicon-based desktop CPUs, built on the Deneb, Propus, Heka, Rana and Regor cores, to bring out quad-core, triple-core and eventually dual-core processors. AMD has discarded the 5-digit number scheme that was earlier reported, and in its place, adopted a three-digit scheme. The quad-core Deneb chips get a 9xx model number and 8xx number depending on the clock-speeds and cache size, Propus-based chips get the Athlon X4 branding.

Heka-based chips get Phenom II X3 7xx branding, with Rana getting Athlon X3 4xx. Regor dual-core trails with Athlon X2 2xx. It is important to note that AMD seems to have made a critical change to the Deneb core, releasing 2 models based on cache-arrangements. The first kind features a total of 8 MB cache (4x 512K L2 + 6M L3) and one with 6 MB total cache. To learn more about the other cores, please refer to our older article getting into details (here).

There's a bit about the processors' launch schedule given as well, all the purple marked numbers are AM3 package based, while green ones are AM2+. Another slide reveals that AMD will come up with a multiplier-unlocked Phenom II X4 940 Black Edition (AM2+) in Q1, 2009. AMD itself projects this chip to have overclocking potential far beyond 4.00 GHz on liquid-cooling, which it describes as "Massive Headroom". We're trying to source larger images at the moment.Source: ChipHell

gives a better impression that a new technology is coming. Also to diffrentiate from previous technology for Average Joe

IBM have been boasting how their 45nm immersion lithography raised the GHz bar for SOI. Impressive.

The P2X4-800's are strange creatures. Either the a900's will command a premium or the a700's will be really cheap.

Well, I can say that they have been failing in performance crown competition, but when it comes to cheap solutions, they were always there for us.

Finally !!
I'm very happy for reading this , go AMD go
I always recommend AMD for my friends , in the same price range , AMD offers better CPU/Motherboard/Graphics
there is no competition in the low end category , AMD simply offers the best.

and 'bout Phenom II , I hope pairing it with a next-gen 8xx chipset will increase the performance more .

but what is the difference between Athlon x2 200 and current Athlon x2 ?!

great news nonetheless

:)

45nm and better architecture I'm guessing. hopefully they will be good clockers!

heh darn was looking forward to deneb AM2+ coming in nov....darn AMD...oh well looks like they have decided to pull back and release everything in january. Also noticing dragon and luo platform, should be similar to Spider and cartwheel platform AMD proposed,

anyone have any further info on the dragon platform or Luo platform????

which leaves me wondering whats going on with the x2 7-series procs, wonder whats going on with those. because when looking over the 3 pic. looks like diff between x2 7 series and regor 200 series is 45nm and clock speed of 2.8ghz, hmm kinda awkward.

looks like gonna have to save up some more cash for either an X3 or x4, darn I hope these things aren't expensive,

Looks like they changed that god-awful 5-digit numbering scheme, just like I had hoped. :D
