TLB bug still not fixed in AMD B3 revision Phenoms?

XtremeSystems spotted a French news article which kinda confirms FUD Zilla's story from earlier today:
On savait déjà que les versions cadencées à 2.4 et 2.6 GHz des Phenom étaient repoussées au second trimestre. Nous avons pu confirmer hier que les 9650 et 9550, version « débugguées » des premiers Phenom (voir notre article) sont également repoussées au second trimestre. AMD a en effet reçu ses premières puces utilisant le stepping B3 (early silicon), le bug n’est toujours pas corrigé. Un nouveau « spin » est donc nécessaire, ce qui peut repousser les Phenom au mois de mai.
The site reports AMD received the first Phenom B3 revision samples and that the TLB bug is still present. To fix the bug AMD will need another spin and this will delay the 2.4GHz and 2.6GHz Phenom processors to May 2008.
