AMD yesterday quietly added an Athlon 64 2800+ processor to its product list.

The 1.8GHz part contains 512KB of on-die L2 cache, and costs $178 in batches of 1000 chips. It's a Socket 754 part.

The 2800+ emerged on roadmaps that leaked onto the web earlier this month. The roadmaps also accurately forecast the arrival of the Athlon 64 FX-54, suggesting that AMD is on course to deliver the 2.4GHz, 1MB L2 Athlon 64 3700+ next month, followed by a series of Socket 939 parts in May. ®
