Thats gunna be awesome, hope they'll come in socket AM2 ......

They'll be in socket AM2+, which will utilize the 4GHZ HTT bus.

They'll work in normal AM2; they'll just drop down to a 2GHZ HTT bus.

Yep, all im waiting for are the Kuma and Agena chips and the AM2+ boards and it will be a combo to give C2Ds a good run.

The K10 will most likely be the Core 2 Killer. Intel will probably lay low for a few like AMD did with their K8's but not as long and then bust out with their new CPU's or something. I believe the Penryn is 45nm and will be coming out Q1 of 08.

They renamed it to K10; for some reason they didn't want to use the K9 label.
