AMD rolls out first Phenom IIs

Watch out, Core i7

HP ProLiant Gen8: Integrated lifecycle automation

AMD doesn't appear to have said as much itself, but one report claims the chip maker has today formally announced its Phenom II processor.

The claim comes from US site EE Times. Since North American journalists are only now climbing out of bed, we imagine the story comes from a pre-briefing given to the title and presumably scheduled to go live today.

Early or not, the cat's out of the sack, and - as expected - AMD's latest quad-core desktop offering is a 3GHz chip fabbed at 45nm with a Socket AM3 interconnect and a memory controller capable of connecting to DDR2 and DDR 3 memory, the latter clocked at up to 1333MHz.

AMD is also launching a 65nm version that's limited to DDR 2 and use the Socket AM2+ interconnect.

The 3GHz Phenom II X4 is priced at $275 - a cheaper, $235 version runs at 2.8GHz. EE Times didn't provide the model numbers, but World+Dog knows them to be the 940 and the 920, with the AM3 versions numbered 945 and 925.
