    AM3 CPU release dates and information

    These are the preliminary release dates for the 45nm AM3 CPUs. Hopefully, they will stick to schedule. I will be updating plus putting update notes at the bottom of this post. Please be sure to read them.

    Code:
    Expected Release Date | Socket |        CPU     |   Speed   |  Total Cache  |  Price
    February 2009             AM3   Phenom II X4 910    2.6GHz         8 MB 
    February 2009             AM3   Phenom II X4 810    2.6GHz         6 MB 
    February 2009             AM3   Phenom II X4 805    2.5GHz         6 MB

    February 2009             AM3   Phenom II X3 710    2.6GHz        7.5 MB 
    April 2009                AM3   Phenom II X4 945    3.0GHz         8 MB 
    April 2009                AM3   Athlon X4 615       2.7GHz         2 MB 
    April 2009                AM3   Athlon X4 605       2.5GHz         2 MB 
    April 2009                AM3   Athlon X3 420       2.8GHz        1.5 MB 
    April 2009                AM3   Athlon X3 410       2.6GHz        1.5 MB 
    June 2009                 AM3   Athlon X2 240       2.8GHz         2 MB 
    June 2009                 AM3   Athlon X2 235       2.7GHz         2 MB

    Phenom II's for AM2+:

    Code:
    Expected Release Date | Socket |        CPU     |   Speed   |  Total Cache  |  Price
    January 8th 2009         AM2+   Phenom II X4 940    3.0GHz         8 MB       299.99
    January 8th 2009         AM2+   Phenom II X4 920    2.8GHz         8 MB       249.99 
    Once I get the prices for these babies, I'll update the list. I'll also add any new releases that might come up.

    TDP

    Code:
    Deneb = 95-125
    Heka = 65-95
    Regor = 45-65
    *Update*: Added the release dates and the estimated pricing for the AM2+ Phenom II's. It's set to compete against i7's higher prices. These are estimated by AMD. The final prices may (and will most likely) be different.

    *Update II*: Added TDP per core.

    *Update 3*: Pricing for the AM2+ Phenom II's have been changed. These are current to December, so these were set after i7's launch. Again, prices MAY be different at launch. Also, according to Softpedia, the AM2+ Phenom II's may be shipping out as early as Dec. 20th '08 for the US and 2 days earlier for Europe (Dec. 18th '08). I don't think it will.

    *Update 4*: TigerDirect has the final pricing for these AM2+ versions of the Phenom II's.

    Awesome man, thans for this. I really like the speeds being released. That 8MB cache should come in handy.

    The one to look out for will be April's 945, or could just OC the 910. I'll update this thread with pricing, once I get a hold of it.

    I just updated the post. Deneb are the 45nm versions of the Phenoms. The two you are asking about are coming in Jan'. But, in the case of the 65nm processors, those aren't Denebs.

    Hey!!! Thanx a lot!!! I gave you a click Thanks.

    Oops. Nope. Those are the X4 Phebom II Denebs, not the 65nm X2's, or were the 65nm X2's cancelled??

    They are coming out. In fact, one of them has been benched already. The Athlon X2 7750 was tested. The other is still on it's way, supposedly. The release date is still up in the air, but it should be in the coming weeks, if not days. By the way, these are the Kuma's.

    Yeah, you're right, they are Kumas and not Denebs, my error. I saw the benches for some ES and they look OK.

    I don't think there are going to be any 140W versions.. I though it was like 120 for the higher end and 95 and below for the others

    I could be very very very wrong though

    They are trying to keep it lower than 125W. Especially for 45nm parts, they want to be fast, while conserving energy. Their aim is for a max of 125W. Of course, that's just what they are aiming for. They are done with the designs and testing, so they should already know what's up. ;)

    Lol god I hope so. 125W is good enough for me! My opty right now is a 125 and I have no problems. A 125W quad will do me some good

    Seems to me that this will be too little, too late. They really needed to get these things out sooner.

    Not only that, but $370 and $450 for the 920 and 940 is WAAAYYYY too much. You can go i7 for that price.

    I agree, but the prices were set right before the launch of the i7. I believe we will see a much lower price. If not, AMD is seriously losing face.

    Shouldnt worry about that, the current mobos support 140 Watt CPUs that are AM2+ but support AM3.

    Prices will most likely be different.

    Kuma 7550 and 7750 in 65nm are to be about $120 or so in the USA, probably less and nearer to $95. They should be on the market this month and some stores list them but they are not available yet. Hope there is not a delay. However, the X3 8750 will still be better at multitasking and a few other things and even the older 6000+ models beat the new Kumas in a few tests, but over all the new Kuma tests show them to be faster and better.

    prices will go down. Only looking forward to the X3 though, the X3 should be a monster.

    Those prices are estimates by AMD. But after the (kind of) successful launch of i7, they are going to rethink the marketing. Like I said, it will be different on release. You can bet on it.

    Thank you....

    Awesome find! I want a Phenom II X4 940, but not for $450 :( If it's around 200-250 on release I may just grab one. :) Thanks for the info!!!
