Exclamation Phenom X4 9-Series (Agena) Release Date

I was somewhat surprised to see that the Phenom wikipedia entry had a precise date for the release of the Agena X4 processors. They are listed for release on November 19, 2007! Six days from now!

Any ideas as to whether or not this is true? Where could that precise date have come from?

List of AMD Phenom microprocessors - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (scroll down a little)

I have not found one article or press release from AMD about a specific release date.

oh man, actually this is old news, I found plenty of articles dated from November 6 about the November 19 release.

Apparently the RV670 will also be launched! Finally, the moment of truth is coming.

better late than never.. but I've got my eye on that Phenom 9700... that low voltage and that 10x Multiplier (i think its 9 or 8 correct me here) will make it a killer overclocker..

hrrrmmmm i dunno, i think that unless they are crappy overclockers the power usage should not be that great between the 9600-9700. which means the 9500 will clock just as high as the 9700, with less voltage...anyone else feelin' me here...?

The Agena 9600 has an 11.5 multiplier!

Check it out!



Yeah, I don't see why there's such a huge difference in power consumption between the 9600 and 9700, I mean, the difference is only 100MHz... what else could be so different that consumes so much power?

even then the 9700 doesnt consume much power.
