Default Anybody know about upcoming dual cores?

A while back I heard amd might make some lower end dual core cpu like maybe a dual core 3200. Does anybody know if they actually plan on doing that? I want a dual core but just cant justify spending that kind of money on a cpu and the intels aren't much cheaper.

sorry i think you're out of luck. as far as i know the X2 3800+ is as low as they plan to make it. dare i say it, your best option may be a Pentium D 820, if you want a lowend dual core. but if i were you and wanted a dual core i would seriously consider trying to get the X2 3800+. its a great processor and IMO worth the cash.

Just wait for a while and all the price's will drop,Dual core is still new so your either going to have to pay the price or just wait.

in the last 2 months in my city the price has dropped from $500 to $465 for an X2 3800 and i'm guessing the biggest price drop is yet to come so stay tuned.
