The Inquirer reports AMD decided to keep the same clock speeds with its Socket 939 and Socket AM2 counterparts:
The Socket AM2 launch list includes FX-62 as the first Athlon 64 FX processor on the new Socket. When compared to FX-60, this new baby has its clock raised by 200MHz and new memory controller, which was necessary to enable it to operate with DDR-II memory.

The operating voltage is set at 1.4V, and the FSB is still 200MHz HTT multiplied by five.

The Socket AM2 offerings come from top to bottom, starting with Semprons and going all the way to Athlon 64 FX-62. Priced at $349, the 4000+ CPU offers 2.0 GHz clock with 1MB of L2 cache per core, which will bring smiles to the faces of many enthusiasts.
The new AM2 socket will be launched on May 23rd.
