    As most of us know, AMD was hoping to shove the triple core Phenom series (8x00) out their factory doors by next month. However, it would seem as though things have changed over at AMD. The Phenom 8400 (2.1GHz) and 8600 (2.3GHz) will both be launched at CeBIT 2008 (which will be hosted in early March). However, AMD may ditch the 8700 in favor of a B3 stepping 8750, accompanied by an 8450 and 8550 from the same stepping.

    Any processor from the B3 stepping should fix up the hated TLB issue that early Phenom processors suffer. This B3 stepping will also show up in quad core parts. The Phenom 9700 (2.4GHz) and 9900 (2.6GHz) will be replaced by the B3 based 9750 and 9950, respectively.

    You lost ur top position. Why can't you be atleast be on track with dates AMD? So it is still coming. We all can see more AM2+ boards from different brands. Right now it is very limited and pricey.

    Very little change if any so Id like you to recant your previous statement :)

    Also, I wasnt aware they were fabbing and shipping out the 9700 and 9900 quads.
