Dubbed Athlon 64 X2 3600+, the chip is said to be available now as an OEM-only part for Socket 939, but an official launch on Socket AM2 could help AMD better compete against Intel's price-slashed Pentium D lineup. Indeed, according to previous leaked roadmaps, Intel plans to launch a new 2.8 GHz Pentium D in July for $133. Another 3.0 GHz flavor is expected to follow at the same $133 price point in the fourth quarter, bringing the 2.8 GHz model's price down to just $113.More info over here.
