AMD triple-core at CeBIT, performance parts delayed

Posted on Monday, February 04 2008 @ 14:16:21 CET by

AMD told its partners that it will release the triple-core Phenom 8400 and 8600 processors at CeBIT in March. The quad-core Phenom 9700 and 9900 were supposed to be released around the same time but AMD says these parts have been delayed to a later time. Instead the firm will release a low-power quad-core Phenom 9100e processor.

The Phenom 9700 and 9900 CPUs are delayed because of the TLB bug and because AMD is working on raising the frequencies to sqeeze out more performance.

The Phenom 9550 and 9650 are expected in the second quarter of this year. The exact release date of the Phenom 9900 is still unknown but all other Phenom CPUs are planned to launch at Computex 2008 in early June.
AMD responded in saying that in order to fulfill consumer demand, the company has made a decision with its partners to give launch priority to triple-core CPUs in the first quarter of 2008. The Phenom 9700 and 9900 will be launched in the second quarter of 2008.
And the bad news doesn't end here. The second wave of triple-core Phenom 8450, 8650 and 8700 processors have been delayed a month, from their original release date in early Q2 2008. The news report also claims AMD will rename the Phenom 8700, 9700 and 9900 to Phenom 8750, 9750 and 9950 by the time they are officially launched.
