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.

The Agena-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 Rana 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."

what annoys me the most, even more than crystal clears immature comments i

What annoys you the most is that I tried to expose you guys(editorial staff) from the inquirer,making comments under different usernames here on this site.

You voting me down doesnt change the fact that you & your collegues come here with bad intentions & your hatred for D.T. & K.K. shows your immaturity ,typical school boyish.

If you & your friends are so happy about the inq... then stay there-what are you doing here ?

I have nothing against the inquirer & their staff...

You use this site to express your deep hatred & enemity & jealousy that you have for K.K.!

All your comments & of others(Reynod,phyco...,etc) clearly show that-you want him OUT & BRAND him a LIAR !

Go settle your accounts with him somewhere else !

What some of these guys don't seem to realize is that I can see when your cookies and IP line up on two different accounts. I let you continue to post here but don't think I'm ignorant to it.

I'm not upset by their criticism. I am surprised that my coverage of the event has triggered the words "fanboy" "conspiracy" and "liar" -- all in the same subject.

Yet still don't see anyone refuting the evidence that the CPU they showed off isn't even on the roadmap. It's fun internet drama, but I suppose there's nothing more pressing to write about at certain publications.

To summarize on all the thrash putout by these posters & the inquirer article.

All they do is to pick out your comment & few others including mine- spin it around & brand you a liar,with the intention to spoil your reputation in the industry.

Thats it !

With all due respect, if the information provided by DT is identical to AMD's public roadmaps, what use is DT, exactly? We can get our press releases and marketing blurbs straight from the source.

When you "cover" an event without even attending it, the least you can do is say so in the "article".

I don't think there's any "conspiracy" here. Just poor (and somewhat unethical) reporting.

Say what you will about the Inquirer, but their "news" are actually new, when they "report" something they actually went there, and their kind of "investigation journalism" actually involves some investigation, not just sitting at home waiting for some marketing department to send them a press release.

I can see how that clashes with modern media culture.
