AMD's dual-core 'Kuma' specs listed?

German spies Phenom X2

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Quite contrary to rumors AMD scrapped its plans to bring dual-core K10 parts to the market, the chip maker may have already begun selling the line to its partners on the sly.

German tech site Hardware-Infos says its snooped out what appears to be the primary lineup of the processors (codenamed "Kuma") from a listing on the pricing search engine Geizhalz.at.

The original story is available here - although you may want to brush up on your German first.

Here are the specs:

AMD Phenom X2 GE-6600: 2.30GHz, 1MB L2 cache (2x 512 KB), 2MB L3 cache

Phenom X2 GE-6500: 2.1GHz, 1MB L2 cache (2x 512 KB), 2MB L3 cache

Phenom X2 GE-6400: 1.90GHz, 1MB L2 cache (2x 512 KB), 2MB L3 cache

As covered earlier, the chips will be fabbed at 65nm and join the tri-core Phenom X3 and quad-core Phenom X4.

Of course, the details should still be taken with a grain of salt at this point. AMD has previously denied canceling Kuma, and as usual, when we contacted the company, it refused to comment on unannounced silicon.

"We are, of course, planning additional CPU releases later this year, but I can't get into the specific details on those releases ahead of launch," an AMD spokesman said in an e-mail. ®
