The Athlon 64 X2 6000+ processor will be launched next quarter, as well as the single-core Athlon 64 4000+.
Both with be the last current-generation chips, allowing AMD to focus on its next-generation architecture, due to launch in Q3.

According to Asian hardware manufacturer sources cited by Chinese-language site HKEPC, the 6000+ will be clocked at 3GHz and contains 2MB of L2 cache. It's a 90nm part that consumes up to 89W of power. Specs for the Athlon 64 4000+ were not provided, but we suggest it will be a 2.6GHz part with 512KB of L2 cache - the logical next step up from the current 2.4GHz 3800+.
