AMD plans to launch two Phenom X4 and three X2 models within the next three quarters
AMD’s latest roadmap reveals the company’s model numbers for the performance and mainstream
Phenom X4 and X2
processors. Despite AMD issuing model numbers, the clock speeds are still ballpark figures and not yet set in stone. AMD has two Phenom X4 and three X2 models planned. Three of the models are set for a Q4’2007 launch.
-based Phenom X4 processors carry the GP-7xxx model number. There will be two Phenom X4 GP-7xxx processors at launch – the GP-7100 and the GP-7000. AMD plans to clock the Phenom X4 GP-7100 from 2.2-to-2.4 GHz. The Phenom X4 GP-7100 has a 3600 MHz HyperTransport 3.0, or HT3, bus speed. The lesser Phenom X4 GP-7000 has a targeted clock speed between 2.0-to-2.2 GHz and a lesser HT3 bus speed in excess of 3200 MHz. The two quad-core processors will have 89-watt thermal ratings.
AMD plans to launch one Phenom X2 GP-6xxx model by the end of the year. The Phenom X2 GP-6550 joins the Phenom line up next quarter clocked somewhere between 2.0-to-2.4 GHz. The first Phenom X2 to launch has a 3600 MHz HT3 bus speed. This model has a TDP of 65 watts.
Two more Phenom X2 GP-6xxx models will join the lineup in Q1’2008. The Phenom X2 GP-6650 will launch first between 2.2-to-2.6 GHz with a 3600 MHz HT3 bus speed. This model has a 65-watt TDP, similar to the GP-6550. The next Phenom X2 GP-6xxx model to launch is the GP-6800. This model has a higher 89-watt TDP, but still a dual-core processor. AMD aims for a 2.4-to-2.8 GHz clock speed with a 4000 MHz HT3 bus speed.
In Q2’2008, AMD plans to launch one more Stars processor based on the
core. This model does not carry the Phenom name because it’s a lower end mainstream processor without L3 cache. The Athlon X2 LS-2350 aims to clock in at 2.0-to-2.2 GHz with a 3200 MHz HT3 bus speed.
The 3.0 GHz Phenom processor that AMD
demonstrated last week during its Analyst Day
does not appear anywhere in the most recent desktop roadmap.
AMD's latest guidance explains that sample availability for AM2 Phenom will begin in the "September/October" window, with box stock during "November/December."

I WAS frustrated, because I was an AMD fanboy.
Then, I researched all the benchies and realized that intel's current processor line up completely knocks the socks off ANYTHING AMD has to offer, by a large margin, and that intels upcoming chips are 99% likely to do the same. Don't cry to me about fpo's claimed by AMD or some such bullshit, the benchies tell it all.
I am now looking forward to my quad core 45nm penryn on 1333fsb compatible with ddr3 this winter, and I am waiting with confidence that it will actually be released on time and be fast as hell. I can also save $800 and OC a Q6600 to beat a QX6850, which itself beats a X26200+ by 20 or 30 percent.
AMD can't give me this sort of product line-up.

I'm not an AMD fanboy by any measure, I jump on whatever bandwagon offers best price/performance at the time, this time round I have an OC'd E6400 (anda mobo that'll, hopefully, accept the 45nm chips in the future) whereas my last PC was a K7, and damned good too!
I'm just worried about the AMD good-bye bit. I don't want to say good bye to AMD, we need the competition! Without AMD we'd never be in the position we are now, with very competant chips at every single price point. It's a great situation for the consumer and I don't think anyone wants it to end.

If your that easy to say good bye, than I'm sure AMD wont miss ya.
Intel has been in the same situation AMD is now, but for YEARS. Intel couldnt produce anything that could compete with the 6x86 or the inception of AMDs 3D Now from back in the day.
Conroe is Intel's 1st winner since the Pentium!
AMD WILL regain the crown, than I can see you gettin your balls in a pinch as you plan for your next AMD rig.
With AMD positioning themsleves for the future, they have put the speed competition to rest.
I dont blame them. They announce new technology more than Intel. Intel has been copying things competitiors come up with for a long time, their only REAL strength is having the finances to rush these technologies to market first.
I will never go back to being an Intel Fanboi. It's goodbye Intel for me.

As of Q2 2007, AMD's market share is 11.4 per cent. Intel's market share is 80.3 per cent. Looking at those numbers, I'm pretty sure AMD will miss
one they lose. Even people who post negative comments about them on DT. ;)
As far as the Phenom/Penryn pissing match? No one here knows how things will shake out right now. We won't know until the chips hit the market. Of course, no matter who ends up on top, we will be right back where we started. The "fans" of the winner will sing it's praises. And, the "fans" of the loser will say, "just wait until the next release when we will pwn you!" Same song, different verse. LOL
