    According to AMD's most recent roadmap, 2 Phenom FX series will see the light of day: Phenom FX-80 and Phenom FX-90. The FX-80 will be designed as single-core CPU's while the FX-90 will be designed as 4x4 dual CPU's.

    The plan is to launch the Phenom FX-90 CPU's by Q1 2008 and the FX-80's a little earlier during the November-December interval.

    why even bother with single core on the low end anymore?
    they should've went all dual and quad at the high end for the props and so they could consolidate to all dual core fab lines...

    Phenom makes me think of Venom (bad!) more than "Phenomenal"

    AMD better get some CPU's out because they are loosing a lot of customers that are disappointed by the fact that they are not releasing anything good. Though i would agree that it will probably take time........just look how long it took Intel to get away from the Netburst architecture.

    sweet, but I read elsewhere the X2 types will debut in last part of 07. Actually its the phenom FXs that goes in both AM2 and 1207 sockets (with releases Q12008 of the other parts and even 1207+ and am2+)

    At least AMD is making an effort to make their new technology backwards compatible with the old stuff... :shadedshu

    I agree, i thought the FX series are considered high-end, i don't really se a point in making a single core FX.

    And i'm glad that AM2+ and AM3 are backwards compatible, at least there is a chance i may keep my current mobo when i upgrade to a Phenom.

    That was my plan as well! One less part to have to spend money on when upgrading! Thank you AMD! :rockout:
