June 6, 2006 didn't fit AMD's schedule
We just got official confirmation from motherboard and chipset manufacturers in Taiwan -- AMD has moved the official launch date of
Athlon 64 DDR2
up two weeks to May 23, 2006. AMD roadmaps have
previously put the AM2 launch at June 6, 2006
(during Computex 2006), but since motherboards and CPUs are already completed, the launch will be pushed up. AMD insiders tell us Conroe's launch date was also a factor in pushing the AM2 launch date up, though even we do not know the exact date Intel's Conroe will launch.
AMD's latest advisories claimed the following:
May 16, 2006: Global announcement of Energy Efficient Processor roadmap and pricing
May 23, 2006: Global announcement of Socket AM2 and new desktop product availability and pricing
May 31, 2006: Global announcement of AMD LIVE! desktop system availability

RE: reverse hyperthreading?

It does sound like something that a Fanboy would come up with. In a lot of ways Hyperthreading is the early form of Dual Core.
This reverse hyperthreading if possible sounds more like joining of ALU's between two cores as one.
In time the best solution for performance is for soft developers ( especially game developers ) to designed their code more multi-threaded. It sounds like Oblivion is such a game that is more multi-threaded.
On the AM2, I think the pre-views have be so-so so far and not very impressive. I thinking AMD desiring to launch it early because they know when the Conroe comes out things will seriously change. So if they can get some buyers before the Conroe, it would mean more money for them.
Just my opinion..
