AMD's next wave of Socket AM3 Phenoms could be getting close to release. At least two online retailers in the U.S. have posted listings for the Phenom II X4 955, which looks to be AMD's fastest quad-core offering yet. The 3.2GHz processor is listed for $323.65 at Bottom Line Telecommunications, and we've spotted another listing at Neutron USA, which charges $324.89.
We heard last month that the Phenom II X4 955 would launch on April 20, and Fudzilla now quotes an April 23 launch date, so this CPU may be available next week. The processor will reportedly have a 125W thermal envelope and an unlocked upper multiplier, and being a Socket AM3 part, it should also support both DDR3 and DDR2 memory.
That's not all. Fudzilla also points out that a German e-tailer lists an HP Pavilion P6060 system that purportedly includes a Phenom II X4 925 (and is scheduled to be available on May 14). Judging by the specs, that processor is simply a Socket AM3 version of the existing Phenom II 920, with the same clock speed, cache size, and thermal envelope—but with added DDR3 memory support.
