FUD Zilla heard the first 45nm Deneb processors from AMD will use the AM2+ socket and will have a TDP of 125W.
These CPUs are expected after November possibly even December and we can also confirmed that AMD doesn’t plan to price these CPUs up the sky and that they will most likely compete with the slowest Core i7, Nehalem generation Bloomfield CPUs in the sub-$300 range.
The pricing hasn't been fixed at the time but it doesn’t look that even 3GHz Deneb has much chance against 2.93GHz Core i7 or faster. The 2.8GHz and 3.0GHz should be faster than 2.66GHz clocked Core i7 920.
The first Deneb supports only DDR2 memory even we know that they have a combo memory controller that can support both DDR2 and DDR3. It looks that the boards supporting DDR3 and AM3 will come later, most likely in Q1 2009.
