Default AMD X4 965, X4 630, August

Advanced Micro Devices, the world’s second largest maker of x86 microprocessors, plans to introduce its new high-performance quad-core microprocessors in August. The most important updates will be AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition, the new top-of-the-range desktop chip by AMD, as well as AMD Athlon II X4 630, the first quad-core Athlon processor that is aimed at mainstream market.

AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Processor will be clocked at 3.40GHz and will feature 2MB L2 cache (512KB per core), 6MB L3 unified cache, integrated dual-channel DDR2/DDR3 memory controller and will support all the latest technologies found in AMD processors. The chip will be in AM3 form-factor, hence, will be able to work in both AM3 and AM2+ platforms that support 125W thermal design power. The new processor will boost performance of AMD’s high-end quad-core chips ahead of the back-to-school season, which will improve competitiveness of AMD’s desktop family of chips. Sources familiar with AMD’s plans said that the company plans to formally unveil the chip on the 13th of August, 2009.

AMD Athlon II X4 630 based on the code-named Propus core will be the first quad-core chip carrying Athlon brand and will also be the first quad-core processor from AMD aimed at mainstream product segment. AMD Athlon II X4 630 clocked at 2.80GHz will feature dual-channel DDR2/DDR3 memory controller (depending on platform) and 2MB L2 cache (512KB per core), but will lack L3 cache. Relatively low clock-speed as well as the lack of third-level cache will make the new chip rather economical in terms of power: TDP of the new processor is 65W. AMD is projected to release the Athlon X4 630 on the 23rd of August, 2009, along with its new AMD 785G core-logic with integrated graphics. Later this Fall AMD also plans to release Athlon II X4 models 600e (2.20GHz), 605e (2.30GHz) and 620 (2.60GHz) to address different market segments.

Sunnyvale, California-based AMD also plans to launch new triple-core Athlon II X3 central processing units sometimes in September or October to complete its new lineup of chips made using 45nm process technology that is aimed at mainstream and entry-level price-segments.

Pricing of the new chips is not known at present.

AMD did not comment on the news-story.

sounds like this may be a contender for the q8x00 and the good 'ol q6600

The only thing ATi can render faster than nVidia is the BSOD


<<< i like rep :D

That wasn't exactly the main headline though....

The emphasis is on the processors themselves. Phenom II is now getting a 3.4GHZ stock model, and they're also making a 'budget' 45nm quad

There's a thread on XS about the power consumption, if anyone's interested.

Phenom2 965 the truth about power consumption starts here - PII 955 vs PII 965 - XtremeSystems Forums
