Wait a minute.. Where is our Phenom II 945 Black Edition in February? I couldn't imagine an arguably simple transition to AM3 would result in a lower clock speed.

Also, any word if AMD will be using triple channel memory in the near future? It would make things easier (and less expensive imo).

And something similar to an X58 would be awesome. I don't want to switch between two boards when switching GPU companies.

AMD will not be using triple channel as of yet

So a Phenom II x3 and 2 4830s would be a dragon?
This is slightly wrong,

Dragon is a phenom II proc, with a 790 series board, and and a 4800 series card. This will be phazed out after the introduction of the 8 series boards which leo will take over.

That is what I believe AMD is presenting it as, Dragon makes more sense as there is a change to the graphics cards and proc, which in the case of spider, which required a phenom a 7 series board, and 3800series card.

Dragon will get phased out and replaced with Leo which I believe uses 8 series and in the case of 8 series you will see the change to ddr3, and also probably a subplatform, called pisces. As in the case of the Sub platform cartwheel which required a phenom X3, 780G board and radeon 3 series card if I'm correct.
