AMD Phenom X4 won't reach 2.6GHz this year

Posted on Thursday, November 08 2007 @ 15:46:59 CET by

The rumour that AMD won't be able to deliver fast enough Phenom processors is growing stronger. DigiTimes reports today that AMD isn't likely to launch a 2.6GHz Phenom X4 processor before 2008.
The sources noted that AMD will only introduce two Phenom CPU at the November 19 launch, the 2.2GHz 9500 and 2.3GHz 9600 models. A 2.4GHz 9700 model is expected to launch during December, but a 2.6GHz one will not be introduced until 2008, they noted.

While expressing satisfaction about the new 65nm desktop CPU lineup, the motherboard makers explained the key reason for AMD failing to meet its roadmap on the launch of a 2.6GHz Phenom is because of barriers relating to conversion to 65nm.
There's also some info about the pricing:
However, the sources highlighted the competitive pricing that AMD is planning to offer. Prices for the 9500 and 9600 CPUs may be as low as US$250 and US$270 for some channels and OEMs, while the officially announced prices will be US$280 and US$320. The 9700 processor will be priced at around US$300, the sources added.
