AMD is working on a new high-end part that may run at 3.6GHz. FUD Zilla reports the Phenom II X4 975 is slated for the first half of 2010 and that it may have a TDP of up to 140W.
TDP's can be as high as 140W, but that will have to be tolerated for such a speed. We don’t know when AMD plans to launch this CPU, but it’s almost certain that it comes in the first half of 2010.
Once Phenom stepping three is available there might be a chance to make a 125W version of this CPU. The plans are in the pipe, and the good thing about it will be the price that will definitely sit close to €200,the current price of Phenom II X4 965.
