Default New Dual Core on August 1st

AMD's dual-core processors offer some pretty impressive performance, but most everyone has been put off by the the insanely high price of entry. While still not cheap, AMD is said to be in the midst of announcing a $345 dual-core Athlon 64 X2 processor:

Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has informed motherboard makers that the unit price (for 1000 unit lots) for its Sempron CPUs will be adjusted downward in early August, with Sempron 2500+ prices dropping more than US$7, according to sources in the motherboard industry. AMD also plans to launch a dual-core Athlon 64 X2 processor on August 1 priced at US$345, a third less than its current lowest priced dual-core CPU, the sources indicated.

So that means all you dual core and overclocking fanatics will just have to wait a few more weeks. Will probably be 2.0 GHZ with 512 cache.
