Last month, AMD officially announced plans to roll out triple-core Phenom processors on the desktop. The chips, according to AMD, are to become available some time in the first quarter of next year. Rumors about the triple-core Phenom lineup have now had time to slip through the cracks, and the folks at VR-Zone have the scoop.
The VR-Zone crew says AMD has two triple-core Phenoms on its roadmap for March 2008. The two processors will be code-named "Troliman," and they will bear 7600 and 7700 model numbers. Clock speeds will be 2.3GHz for the 7600 and 2.5GHz for the 7700. Both chips will fit into Socket AM2 motherboards and sport 512KB of L2 cache per core, 2MB of shared L3 cache per chip, and 89W thermal envelopes. Looking further ahead, VR-Zone says we can expect "Heka" triple-core Phenoms based on 45nm process technology to launch in the first half of 2009.
