DigiTimes writes AMD will ship triple-core Toliman Phenom 8000 series processors to OEMs in March.
Although AMD's triple-core Toliman processors (Phenom 8000) will be launched on schedule in March this year, initially only B2 stepping versions will be released, and they will only be available to the OEM market, according to sources at motherboard makers.

Both Hewlett-Packard (HP) and Dell are expected to launch products featuring the triple-core processors, which are likely to be popular due to their competitive price/performance ratio, noted the sources.
