Default Athlon X2 Is Dead; Long Live Athlon 6000

The folks at DigiTimes are saying that, according to sources at motherboard makers, AMD will soon phase out several Athlon 64 X2 CPUs and launch a new line of dual-core products based on its next-generation architecture.
AMD will stop taking orders for Athlon 64 X2 6400+ black edition and 89W version Athlon 64 X2 6000+ processors in the first quarter of 2008. Last orders for 125W Athlon 64 X2 6000+ and Athlon 64 X2 5600+ processors will be at the end of the first quarter, the sources detailed.

welcome to the modern world of computer advancements. always gotta make something newer and better, gotta keep up with the competition. you gotta love it, one year AMD has better processor, next year intel, back and forth, like a pendulum. gotta love it though, think about it, without competition all our processors would probably suck and wed never know it cuz wed have nothing to compare em to.
