    AMD plans to refresh one of its fastest dual-core CPUs, the Athlon 64 X2 6000+. The processor launched last February is based on the 90nm Windsor core clocked to 3.0GHz with a 125-watt TDP. The refreshed X2 6000+ will continue to use the Windsor core, instead of its 65nm Brisbane successor used in the 5200+, 5000+, 4800+, 4400+, 4000+, 3600+ processors and BE-series. The refreshed model will drop the thermal ratings down to 89-watts. Despite the impending launch of the Phenom X2 series, the Athlon 64 X2 6000+ will remain the only mainstream AMD dual-core desktop processor with a 3.0GHz clock frequency, since the upcoming Phenom X2 series top out to around 2.8GHz. Expect AMD to release 89-watt Athlon 64 X2 6000+ processors next quarter.

    Sounds Good. I wonder if the X2 6400+ will materialise, in another news bulletin it was claimed that this would also have a TDP of 89W. :)

    Hmm..Why not just drop it down to the 65nm die size? This doesnt make sense, but I guess lower thermals are a good thing.


    Still would have loved to see a die shrink as Im guessing all of AMDs fabs were turned over to 65nm ones.

    Rumor has it that they are having voltage leakage issues with the 65nm process, atm.
