I'm Dreaming of a 3.0GHz Athlon 64 X2

AMD isn't ditching 90nm just yet
Remember the Athlon 64 X2 6000+ processor that was
supposed to be unveiled late last year
? Yep, it's still going to happen.
Earlier this week AMD added the Athlon 64 6000+ SKU to its distributor roadmap along with several Energy Efficient low power CPUs -- the single-core EE 3800+ and 3500+. The 6000+ chips are scheduled for a late February launch and will be based on the 90nm node, while the EE CPUs are slated for the 65nm node.
indicated the Athlon 64 X2 6000+ is a 2x1MB L2 cache component with a 125W TDP. 3.0GHz is the next clock frequency in AMD's portfolio, so it would also be reasonable to expect the 6000+ to debut at this core frequency. The new chip will be a Socket AM2 exclusive CPU.
The Energy Efficient 3800+ and 3500+ will be clocked at 2.4GHz and 2.2GHz respectively, and carry at TDP of 45W.
The most recent roadmap updates gave no reason for the chip delay. Barring no problems with the
slated for the middle of this year, the 6000+ will be the last Athlon 64 X2 processor on the high end.
Pricing for the 6000+ is expected at $607 per chip in quantities of 1,000. The Athlon 64 3800+ and 3500+ will sell at $101 and $91 in quantities of 1,000.
