    DISTRIBUTORS IN EUROPE and North America will begin shipping both OEM and retail boxes of the Phenom II 920 and Phenom II 940 starting December 18th (Europe), according to one distributor, and December 20th (North America).

    The Phenom II X4 920 SKU will sell at about $235 to retailers, while the overclocking whiz-kid, the Phenom II X4 940 will ship at $275. At least one distributor says December 20th is the ETA for the shipment.

    As far as we can tell, pricing in Europe will be around €220 for the 920 but will become available from the 18th. We couldn’t get a pricing on the 940, though, but we’d expect it to be in the €250-265 range. Add tax to these numbers, if you will.

    This puts the Phenom II X4 940 just under the Core 2 Quad 9550, while the Phenom II X4 920 will undercut the Q9400. Expect Intel to slash prices just before Christmas.

    So those of you who wrote letters to Saint Nick asking for Phenom II, might get your wishes after all.

    We couldn’t get hold of AMD for a comment, but there isn’t much to comment, is there? Wonder how that January 8 NDA will hold up when these things reach the market?

    I hope it's coming fast. Can't wait to see how it performs and what the maximum overclock is on air.

    If Intel can steal AMD technology why can't AMD use Intel's naming scheme?

    Omg, nobody stole anything. If you people are going to start bitching about product-names, why not start about the fact that ATI is using 3xxx series and 4xxx series while Nvidia has already done that in the past.

    Seriously, who cares about the names...

    And Nvidia is using 9xxx series names when ATI have done it in the past, so yeah no big deal.


    From the title I thought B4 stepping Phenom IIs were going to be out by xmas.

    The AM2+ CPU's might be available before januari, but if your smart you wait a week or two after the release so that more shops have it in stock with lower prices as a result.

    Usually when you are joking you use a smiley. And even with a smiley your "joke" sounds "Intel fanboyish" :p
