Listings reveal 3.4GHz Phenom II X4 965

Just over a month ago, we saw not one, but two reports forecast the arrival of a 3.4GHz Phenom II processor. Today, those reports seem all but confirmed.

An eagle-eyed TR forum member has found a listing for the processor north of the border at Premier Computer Canada. The listing details a Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition clocked at 3.4GHz with 8MB of total cache, a Socket AM3 package, and a 125W thermal envelope. The Black Edition tag also suggests an unlocked upper multiplier.

Premier Computer Canada charges $294.99 CAD ($274 USD) for pre-orders, although it doesn't say when the CPU will become available.

A search for the model number reveals many other listings, most being in Europe. Evidence points to this still-unannounced Phenom II X4 965 costing roughly 20-30% more than the Phenom II X4 940, which would put it in the $230-$250 range in the States. AMD's current flagship, the Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition, is available for $215 on Newegg. (Thanks to michael_d for the find.)
