a shared 2MB pool of L3 cache
. In addition, both processors will operate on a 3.6GHz HyperTransport bus and will have an 89 Watt Thermal Design Power envelope.
In December the slightly higher-end Phenom 9700 will become AMD's third desktop Barcelona-derivative. All technical aspects of the processor will be the same as those for the 9600 and 9500, save for a few improvements. The processor will run at a slightly higher operating frequency of 2.6GHz. The downside of these improvements is a higher 125-Watt Thermal Design Power envelope.
