AMD have plans to release processors with the Deneb core all the way up to 4GHz stock by 2010.
We already have the ability to purchase the newest AMD Phenom II X4 955 3.2GHz Black Edition chips, so next in line would be the logical 3.4GHz chip.
This is being branded as the Phenom II X4 965. Motherboard manufacturer ASRock already list the processor in it’s supported list of CPU’s. It confirms for us that it is indeed the Black Edition HDZ965FBK4DGI (BE) and will come with:
- 2MB L2 Cache
- 6MB L3 Cache
- 45nm fabrication process
This is the standard for all of the latest CPU’s from manufacturer AMD.Rumors are telling us that have it that AMD should be releasing this processor next week, with the hope in consumers eyes that it will be the same launch price that it’s predecessor (The 955) was.
If AMD keep releasing processors this frequently, we should be seeing a processor capable of 3.8GHz stock by Christmas 2009
