The Inq writes AMD will launch its Socket AM2 processors this Tuesday:
It is interesting to note that there are a lot of AM2 boards and CPUs listed and you can probably preorder quite a few of them. The cheapest one that we could find, an MSI K9N Ultra-2F, nForce 570 (dual PC2-800 DDR2) should cost you around €90 while the most expensive one using nForce 590 chipset the MSI K9N Diamond, nForce 590 SLI (dual PC2-800 DDR2) (MS-7226-010) will cost you almost €200.

We expect to see those boards available next week already, just after Tuesday's embargo lifts.
