Default AMD prepares low-cost dual core 3600+ processor

Quote:
AMD isn't willing to let it slide, though, and is answering back with the AMD Athlon64 X2 3600+. This new CPU, operating 200MHz slower than the 3800+ and having half the L2 cache at 256kb per core, will be the lowest priced dual-core offering that AMD has. Rumors say it is set for release in Q4 2006, though that is not for sure.

Well they said around the lowest price dual core intel which is right now I think 108.

So I'm thinking they are going to do roughly around 150-200 If they want to stay in this.

That is a low amount of cache. Do amd x2 processors combine their cache if one core isn't being used like the mobile intel core duo does? I would consider upgrading to one of those from my amd64 3000+ if it did and was cheap.
