FUD Zilla claims AMD's
upcoming quad-core Phenom X4 processor can hit 3.24GHz:
We already reported that AMD can hit 3.0 GHz at 1.38V and a TDP (Thermal Design Power) of a still acceptable 120W.
Well, the good news is that this is not the final stop. If necessary AMD can clock this CPU even higher and 3.24GHz is currently the fastest speed that AMD can hit and probably wrap in its warranty. Clock per clock, the 3 GHz Barcelona / Phenom X4 should beat a Core 2 Quad at 3 GHZ, so this would mean that 3.24 GHz from AMD should be enough to fight Penryn at 3.33 GHz, at least in theory.
They also write the
dual-core Phenom X2 may hit 3.4GHz:
Phenom X2 would be initially shipping at faster speeds than 3 GHz and the real quantity comes in Q1 2008. Still there is a light as this CPU can hit 3.4 GHz.
We are talking about Kuma DC – dual core processor that is supposed to follow the Barcelona and Phenom FX and X4 launch.
