Phenom 2.6GHz to be the fastest

Written by Fuad Abazovic

In December or January 


AMD is still trying hard to launch sub 3GHZ parts and it looks like the company will launch up to 2.6GHz CPUs and probably will follow with a faster one shortly after.

Phenom 2.6GHz is still a question mark, but there is a good chance we will see this one either in December or early year, and 2.8GHz and faster parts have the same future.

The original plan was to launch 2.2 to 2.8GHz as the fastest one this year, and then to launch 3.0GHz shortly after, but some plans were delayed. Phenom X2 2.2 to 2.4 will certainly launch in about two weeks and it is still unknown when the 2.6GHz part comes out.

Phenom X4 will be the focus now, as there are so many AM2+ sockets around that should be able to take the quad core; and about US$250.00 sounds like a reasonable price for AMD’s quad core that will run faster than most of the Athlon XP+s around.
