FUD Zilla reports the new Propus-based Athlon II quad-core processors are already showing up in retail stores:
Take the Athlon II X4 620 for example. It's a 2.6GHz part with 4x512kB of L2 cache and a 95W TDP. Of course, it's a 45nm AM3 part with DDR3 support. Nothing spectacular, apart from the price tag. At €82 it is truly amazing value, as this is practically dual-core money. In case you need a bit more horsepower, you can go for the 2.8GHz Athlon II X4 630, which is currently listed at €99. A quick glance at Intel's quad-core pricing reveals that the cheapest Q8200 at 2.33GHz sells for €115.
