Bleeding edge AMD fans rejoice; your 3.0GHz processor has arrived
It appears as though the February 20th, 2007 embargo date on Athlon 64 X2 6000+ applies to everyone except
and Newegg. Details of the last
high-end Athlon 64 X2 processor
AMD's next-generation microarchitecture
was leaked out
just a few days ago.
Ryan Shrout tells us that
early this morning
the retailer began selling the
3.0GHz chip for $599 in-stock
, which is actually just under the volume distributor pricing of $607. Buy.com also lists the processor, but for
$685 and out of stock
The processor is slated to launch in a little more than three weeks, but it appears that information about the CPU has already been disclosed. The model number has not appeared on AMD's website yet. AMD's model number, ADX6000IAA6CZ, was leaked with some preliminary specifications on
Asrock's motherboard support website
early this year.
The CPU is a 90nm dual-core 3.0GHz processor. It features 1MB L2 cache per core and is essentially identical to the Athlon 64 FX-74 processor with the exception that the 6000+ uses Socket AM2 instead of Socket 1207.
Two Athlon 64 FX 70-series processors are used in
AMD's high-end Quad FX platform
. Typically the FX-family processors cost significantly more than the desktop components, but in this case the FX-74 is actually priced
$50 less than the 6000+ at Newegg

I agree. That thing must be a real flamethrower...it must be a poor OCer too.

Given past history OCing AMD chips, I would say this is just a factory OC version of the other chips. Probably doesn't OC at all because its already on the edge of its limits.
