Default AMD FX-60 and 5000+ CPUs coming soon

An article on The Adrenaline Vault:
Today AMD officially dropped the prices on most of their processor line but AVault was able to get a hold of an internal document that shows the pricing for 1Q 06. The big surprise is that AMD also has listed the FX-60 and 5000+ processors.

At this time I am not sure why AMD has skipped over FX-59 but I have an idea. At the ECS Editors day event a few short months ago I asked an AMD represenitive is the next FX processor would be a dual core solution and was told that it would not be. Now it is looking like AMD may have changed their mind on the FX-59 and turned it into a dual core called FX-60.

If you look at the dual core Opteron processors that are available today you see the naming scheme goes by fives, 260, 265, 260, ect. For AMD to release a dual core FX chip it would make sense to bring it out in increments of five and FX-64 just does not have the same ring to it as FX-65. I can only assume that if FX-60 is not dual core then FX-65 will be.

For the 5000+, it is almost guaranteed to be a 2.6 GHz product. Those luck few I know running 4800+ processors are all reporting overclocks above 2.6 and doing it on the stock coolers with minimal effort.

Unfortunately, the link to the AMD page was removed at the request of AMD.

Ah yes, a look at the next line AMDs. To me, the bleeding-edge CPUs, etc dont mean too much, its the fact that upon their release, it forces the now middle-line equipment down in price

By the time AMD gets to the FX-70 it'll be dual cores at 3.2Ghz per core.
It'll also cost about $1,500 per unit of 1000.

I think the 5000+ will be in socket M2, so it will use DDR2. that means maybe a 333MHZ (DDR667) HTT (if that's the standard for DDR2)
