AMD plans one last "Windsor" based Athlon 64 X2
AMD refuses to kill off its 90nm
core Athlon 64 X2 processors. The
Athlon 64 X2 6000+
is AMD’s fastest dual-core performance processor. The processor launched last February to the tune of 3.0 GHz with a 125-watt TDP.
The model continues to stay on AMD’s roadmap throughout the rest of 2007 and half of 2008. AMD plans a refresher for the Athlon 64 X2 6000+. Instead of moving it to the
core like many other Athlon 64 X2 models, including the 5200+, 5000+, 4800+, 4400+, 4000+, 3600+ and
, the refreshed X2 6000+ sticks to the
The refreshed model drops the thermal ratings down to 89-watts. Still, the reduced thermal envelope is still 24-watts higher than the highest-clocked
– the X2 5200+ at 2.7 GHz. However, the thermals match AMD’s upcoming
Phenom X2 GP-6800
based model slated for Q1’2008.
Despite the impending launch of the Phenom X2 series, the Athlon 64 X2 6000+ remains the only mainstream AMD dual-core desktop processor with a 3.0 GHz clock frequency. The upcoming Phenom X2 series top out around 2.4-to-2.8 GHz when the GP-6800 launches, according to a recent AMD roadmap. AMD does not have any plans to release a 3.0 GHz
on its roadmap yet.
Expect AMD to release 89-watt Athlon 64 X2 6000+ processors next quarter.

He is correct though, its like the Old Pentium 3 667
It has a 133mhz Front side bus, and a multiplier of 5, which gives 665.
But the bus was never just "133" it was 133.3333333 recurring.
But they only used the last two digits of the 133.3
Now, 133.33 multiplied by 5 gives you 666.65, round that off and you get 667.

no, he's not correct. I can say anything I want theoretically... doesn't mean its true.
there isn't a piece of test equipment in existance that can measure anything infinite. it's kinda like say that a perpetual motion machine really does exist.
